What can I say, I think it looks amazing.
I watched it on an iPad Air 2 and the visuals looked amazing. On the smaller high res screen it looked lovely and crisp, with plenty of small details everywhere. I don’t know how much of that opening room is dressed up for the video, but all the debris in the floor are 3D and the dog has some nice looking fur.
It showed a great range of scenery too, with some shots looking a bit like a post apocalyptic Blade Runner. The game looks to have a serious boost in colour too. I found the previous game to be very drab and grey, seriously lacking in colour.
Speaking of visuals, people have been whining for years about when this game is coming, and now the trailer finally drops, they continue to whine over the graphics looking last gen.
Seriously, what the hell.
I love that there are still companies out there being secretive about their work, not revealing too much until just before release. There’s not enough surprises in the world! There was a time when the only game news you had was from magazines, once a month. That is, if you were lucky enough for them to cover that particular game. If you were really lucky, maybe some 640×480 screens on a cover disc, or a 320×200 video. If you were even luckier, a demo.
Today we have open betas, early access, blogs, podcasts, 8k screenshots, 4k videos, developer interviews, diaries, and it’s still not enough.
Kids today don’t know how spoiled they are.
