Looks good. But if I really had to be nitpicking I would say the character models are what brings it down, just a notch. The environments and the render engine in general looks top.

Nice ass. That's all I can say.

Bohemia produce the very definition of open world games.

Does an aircraft carrier count? ;)

environments look great, although there seems to be a lack of shadows cast from trees? which makes it all look a little flat, but that could be due to being so high up? either way it looks pretty nice. but im with BooM on this one...character models are pretty crappy.

i think photoshop is being generous, that looks like its been done in paint.

Looking good, nice and subtle filtering and lighting is solid if a little flat.

They were probably transparent PNGs, photoshop, etc, don't save colour info for the fully transparent parts of pngs, so it goes black. Remove the alpha when converting it to a jpeg and you get that sort of uglyness.

Yes the originals are png's with transparent backgrounds :)

They haven't announced anything unfortunately (more than it's coming).

About the game
  • Arma 2
  • PC, X360, PS3
  • French release: 2009

What's up?
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And like.. what's the purpose of the loot itself. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @GriftGFX: I feel like what the loot is will determine the way people play. Will there be the standard common to Legendary loot? Will some loot be harder to navigate to, if so, will it be worth it? (2 Hours ago)
