Anyone know what engine this is using? Looks like there's some global illumination going on there. Looks nice.

The resolution on them is pretty small, but still larger than standard 720 (by like a handful of vert pixels). I'm not pixel counter or someone who gives a crap but I'd suggest this is the 360 build running on a PC and either editing afterwards with some heavy AA or just the PC version running as it should with reduced resolution etc. Devs will do this because this is the target for the game visually, the console version might not technically look exactly like this but in motion it should look basically the same to 90% of people playing it.

PC shots for sure. Its using the Glacier 2 Engine which was also for other previous I-O titles.

Well I think the Glacier 2 engine is a pretty big update from the previous version.

Yea the other games were on Glacier 1.0, Absolution is the first running on 2.0 I think.

PS3 is lead version though, and all the footage has been from that so far. Still, these shots are likely PC. Graphically the PC version looks like that minus the ridiculous AA

HAHAHA!

It is definitely the first game being made using Glacier 2, and it probably won't look quite as nice on consoles, but should be extremely comparable.

The lightning in these screens looks weird (not in a bad way though). I dunno but somehow i get bioshock flashbacks by the looks of this... Uhm, Arcadia anyone else ?
Commented on 2012-02-13 23:12:14
all those screens are so photoshoped that you won't notice it in final product/game etc.
Commented on 2012-02-14 01:43:09
NPC eyes look weird :/ Work in progress I guess.

This looks very nice. I just hope there will be an option to turn off that stupid sissy predator-like-path-finding-through-walls-enemies-seeing "skill". To be honest, I felt offended, when I saw that feature for the first time. But without this,...it looks awesome. :-)
