Colin describes how they implemented the various cues that the music system needed using scripts, volume triggers, and player vs. enemy levels. Using bar and beat music callbacks from Wwise, they were able to convince the team to experiment with synchronizing enemy attack moves to the music's beat. You can watch this particular system in action here, and it is quite impressive!
