Degrade. Looks flat. Blurry textures.

Ouch! what's with the low resolution textures ? and my god these screens are really badly compressed. Somehow the game is looking less impressive for me now .... hum....

Those indoor textures look great, the outdoor ones don't though.

And they only way you'll be able to see if it's been downgraded, which I don't think it has, is by looking at the same arena environment.

Thank God we don't live in feudal Japan, where thousands of men would have to clamor around one woman to carry on their family name :P.

Looks almost as ugly as Lair. Hopefully it ends up playing well, cause the hype for this game is seriously overrated to me.

Lighting is something vibrant and dynamic that can change according what you have on screen and in which direction are you looking at (it's not like the sky lights the scene in the same way from every direction, and also camera exposure is automatically adjusted per frame).
Fog also is not just 'fog', it's applied on every single pixel we render and it's computed in a very complex fashion (mie and rayleigh scattering equations), it's not really something you wanna use to 'cover' stuff as it's more expensive to compute that the stuff you want to cover, lol
So please relax, nothing has been taken away!
Personally, it looks beautiful and I'm sure plays beautiful too.
But it's too far away from release (i.e: We don't know when) to be excited about this game though.

As long as the final product looks like this, i'll be happy:

Well, her face would only look like this during cut-scenes. Or else it would drain too much polies.

certainly a graphical downgrade judging from those screens. one would be stupid to say otherwise.

lucky Im not just one then, since your the 'one' who has used up that quota.

Looks good.

well, by my logic you would be the one, since you don't see the downgrade...

I'm not saying it doesn't look nice, but compared to the earler screens it's most certainly not looking 'better' nor 'as good'.

About the game

What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Melmoth: Just read up on it. Itls developped by a member of Crytek while still working for Crytek and is based of the CryEngine, but it is proprietary to Ubisoft. How that works in terms of royalties (2 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Melmoth: Is the Dunia Engine Crytek property? I don't think so (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I mean they can keep upgrading it but why bother when they have more capable engines already. (15 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it shows its age in a lot of ways in FC5 and they have better tech so they should use it. (15 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth if they still pay royalties to crytech when using it they probably should (15 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Although I think it's kinda time to retire Dunia. (15 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @HR2: a lot of studios used modified UE3, games like Arkham Knight, XCom2, both being very problematic on pc. Interesting to see what those studios will do for their next games. (15 Hours ago)
