E3: Elveon trailer & images

E3: Elveon trailer & images

10tacle Studios released this long gameplay trailer and some images of Elveon, and I can't say I'm impressed. I don't know if I should try to compare it with some of the old (obviously CG) screens, or Oblivion. Elveon probably fails on both though. Let's not forget that there's still alot of time left till the release.

Need to see the video, but I think those screen look quite nice. Was waiting for something much worse.. dont think theres any need to compare it to Oblivion or is this supposed to be the same kinda RPG ??

Maybe not the best use of the Unreal Engine 3 but remember they switched to this new Engine just some weeks ago.

I expect some nice improvements in the future.

Images seem nice enough. Worth keeping an eye on at least.

Holy cow... I totally disagree with you blim, I think that blows Oblivion out of the water.

Had a very Epic "lord of the rings" like feel to the trailer.

Is this First Person or Third Person.

Character design is 20 times better than Oblivion.

this is the best picture of all of them.

I think it looks insane... better than Oblivion!

doesn't look bad, they should settle for the crysis-engine ;)

Wow, I'm a sucker for these kinds of game and art design. Am interested.

I disagree with Blim too. I think it looks great.

Yea I agree, this game beats out Oblivion. Looks excellent.
Commented on 2006-05-11 10:18:41
Blim? this looks way better than anything in oblivion?! huh?
Commented on 2006-05-11 10:19:09
what is there not to like? Oblivion pales in comparison to this. But on the other hand, Elveon doesnt have the scale of oblivion, right?

Personally I just hope they can keep this up and improve it where its needed.

With aliasing its going to look fantastic. I much prefer the art direction in this than Oblivion also.

Guys guys, check who wrote this please :D
Commented on 2006-05-11 21:27:54
Yeah!! Let's stone the one that wrote that stupid s**t!!

Nah, but seriously - I posted like one news for every five minutes in like 5 hours yesterday. I could have been a little bit cranky, but: I haven't seen 10% of the stuff I've posted this week for myself, and I didn't see the whole trailer but fast-forwarded it. I just took a quick look on the graphics style, and that's what made up my mind. I probably shouldn't have written that, but I thought it was better than just writing "10tacle Studios released this trailer and these images.", the news page looks so god damn empty. Still, I can't say I'm impressed - but I don't know much about the gameplay, but the graphics in general doesn't look that good to me.

I think this game looks pretty good.. I dont see it looking any worse than oblivion, the screens just dont try to fake AA like oblivion shots did (or were badly upscaled).

Add some AA and this game will be as next gen as any game in its genre thus far.

I especially like the hires texturing and artwork on the armor. Nice to see sharp textures for a change. I was starting to think the 360 has 256MB instead of 512MB

    GriftGFX And ya gotta count horses 'cause horsing is one of the best things in the game. (2 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 @GriftGFX: yeah I've noticed the extra revive time. You shouldn't compare ww1 vehicles to modern warfare though as it's simply unfair. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm sure people miss the progression from more recent games tho.. some people are really into that. It's undeniably barebones by comparison. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Have you noticed that you can still be revived waaaay after the "bleed out" period? Still saves a death too.. hah. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's not just the lack of unlocks.. lack of stuff in general. Battlefield 2 still had more vehicle and weapon variety than BF1. Way more. (3 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 On another note, people moaning about unlocks and lack of them need to remember that BF2 shipped with possibly less than BF1 and that is considered the pinnacle of the series... (3 Hours ago)
