I was hired to field record a Scion FR-S sports car for EA's Need for Speed 2015 video game. Today is the official release available for XBox One, PS4, and PC. I rigged a total of 7 mics OnBoard the modified car and also tracked it with an External M/S stereo shotgun mic.
From IGN.com "Need for Speed also sounds nearly as good as it looks; the throaty burble of performance-tuned engines is well-realised and the crackle of exhaust overrun and the ker-chuck of slamming gears is similarly resectable." - "Great visuals and sound"
Go out, buy the game, and kill some tires!!
