The Vanishing of Ethan Carter new trailer

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter new trailer

The developers at The Astronauts are still working meticulously on their promising game The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and today they give a new glimpse with this in-game trailer. It focuses on the mood and the visuals they achieved thanks to photogrammetry technology. The team aims to bring a horror tale and an atmoshphere worthy of the weird fiction stories around Paul Prospero, the detective we'll control when the game's out later this year.

Amazing environments, though the character models seemed pretty rough. Looks interesting, though, I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this one.

Nice graphics but a pretty poor trailer :/ Not enough subtlety :/

That photogrammetry technique is incredible. Wow at those gorgeous textures.

Is this what Alan Wake should have been?

This actually impresses me more then the witcher 3. Got a bit of style to it.

100% agreed. While I was watching it, I thought to myself, "this looks better than Witcher 3".

The character models look like they don't belong in this game. They look terrible, especially when compared to the environments, which are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen in a game.

looks like this and the witcher 3 will be the new defining PC benchmarks, this looks miles better than the valley benchmark, just wonder if this is open world like the witcher 3 is, if it is and the map is around the same size it'll be epic.

HAHA looked good till the 2006 character models came onto the screen :/

why the hell would they think these models looked good or fitted in with the game..if they look like that in the final product it will just ruin all the other great graphics in the game

I clicked on the link to the photogrammetry and came back to watch the video. All I could think was, somebody lied to me. That was not the same level of detail. It looks fantastic, but it still doesn't look photo-realistic like some of the stuff from the link.

And those character models. Really? What the hell happened? I'm hoping this trailer was a joke, because those character models sure were.

Why is everyone talking about the character models?

Did you all miss the terrible animations and sound effects?! Wow, talk about an uneven road. These guys need to smooth things out.

Well, the environments look great because they are basically 3d scanned. Read the article :P

Looking at the first screenshot that released for this game i think the stylised character models are intentional. By design rather then lack of skill or tech limitations. A bit like dishonored.

Trailer is offline. Could it be uploaded again maybe?
