i still think this looks a bit too much like doom 3 technically. still, it looks pretty good gameplay wise...

Yeah, that blood splatter decal is perhaps a bit on the low-res side.

Looks like doom 3? I wish more games did dynamic lighting like Doom 3 :P

I agree Megido, I miss more game with non baked shadows like Doom3, Thief3 and Escape from Butcher bay.

Gives a lot more life to the environments when the lights are dynamic, for sure. Even an older gmae like Doom still looks interesting because of the lighting imo. Sure it's aged quite a bit in terms of texture resolution, shaders and poly counts, but the lighting is quite immersive.

I want this so bad! Can´t wait for some evening mindless massacre. :-)

Are you guys seriously bitching about how "low res" a normal map is for a blood decal, given the rest of the screenshot!?!?

It's NOT that low-res and you're talking about a NORMAL MAP. If you knew anything about how these things were constructed, you'd know you're looking at a phuk-ton of texture memory being eaten up in that screenshot and that the normal that's giving the blood some "depth" isn't "low" at all. SMH

Love that DoF - looking forward!

Ofc, but taking technical limitations in consideration it still looks great imo. And used right, it can be super atmospheric :)

twitch; yeah no, i don't have a 2 year degree in 3d graphics or anything. For such a prominent texture, it looks blocky as shit. Texel density is waaaay off compared to the rest of the scene.

That's good and all, but I give no fucks about terminology for as long as it looks like PS1 texture.

Don´t worry guys....You will be so busy killing all the monsters, You will not even notice some lower res texture here and there. :-)

You must be new here.

Outside of that, I've realized that even if a new doom game looks like minecraft, I'd still have to buy it. I'm starting to think I'm id's and Epic's bitch.

Yeah, was about to say that. Still, if you look at it purely from an artistic view, then it looked great. Effective for scaring the shit out of you.

Exactly right. It's usually effects decals that get paid little attention to because they're usually on the screen for a split second only. Not to mention ones that repeat and pile up like blood splatter, of which there's a tone of variation on, each having it's own spec, normal and diffuse as well as the shader. It's usually one size fits all regarding a decal stamp like that, and that one on the floor looks like it's just been scaled out to fit the scene better. Not a big deal at all.


Looks like they've changed the shader on the Baron's eye from green to red. Hopefully the continue to make tweaks to the models. Having the Baron there and resembling the old design is great and all, but personally I'd have it's face somewhat more closer to the originals. Give it human-like teeth, narrow the mouth and drop it further down the jaw and it would look much better, and creepier.

Say what you will, but when a big decal on the ground looks like red lego compared to the otherwise high-res textures, it stands out. Is it game breaking? Hardly. But it is kind of an eye sore.

I'm sure it'll get modded right :P

Loving the atmosphere on display in that second shot. Excited to play this.

Why, what's wrong with it? Bokeh is the new lense flair.

Blurry is the new image quality. I can see more than ten feet in front of me. Doomguy needs glasses. Not that actual gameplay with be as bokeh-drenched as that "screenshot". Hopefully. The FOV is killin' me. And if you want to see persistent blood that doesn't look like crap.. check out Killing Floor 2. That's UE3 even.

Yeah, they usually exaggerate it because pretty. Same with the lense flair, devs seem to love using bokeh this gen every chance they get. I think it only does that when you bring up the weapon select from the gameplay footage as far as I can remember.

DOF, motion blur, chromatic aberration... killing image quality is not pretty.

From a gamplay perspective, sure; from an artists...thats debatable. Bokeh replicates real world camera DOF. It brings that effect of a real world camera, same as chromatic aberration. Whenever I want to take a photo realistic render of something, I always add a dash of both to the camera set up. The thing I've noticed with its use in most games is that the blade curvature is always circular, and never hexagonal. Still, it looks a hell of a lot better than the standard blurry window effect that games used as DOF before it.

Nah! Just need to implement them properly. That's all. Many games don't though.

Perhaps. I've seen some implementation of bokeh that's not too bad.

Most games do a terrible job at emulating a camera, and frankly should not be trying. I'm looking through the eyes of my avatar. It should emulate human vision, and not some doctored magazine photoshoot.
