This is what a next-generation Mass Effect game could look like - Part 2

DSOGaming writes: "Remember artist Baolong Zhang? What was that? No you say? Shame on you then. Zhang has been creating a character model on Unreal Engine 3, inspired by BioWare’s sci-fi franchise, Mass Effect. This characters shows – pretty much – what we can expect from a next-generation Mass Effect game. The interesting part here is that – unlike other renders – this is a real-time character, created on Unreal Engine 3. In other words, this is no CG bullcrap, but 100% real-time. Thankfully, the artist is back with a punch, and has released a new set of screenshots from his updated model. Enjoy!"

How will aliens looks?
Will planet roaming return?
Will there be space combat?

These are thing I want to know. If this new engine requires established aliens to be radically redesigned, then it fails.

What are you talking about? This is just a render some guy made in UE3. Has nothing to do with the next Mass Effect.

They're suppose to be moving to a new graphics engine. If it performs on a different level than UE3, then changes will have to be made to base designs. Prominent aliens races will either look different, or dropped out of the story world - just because.

Not that Bioware hasn't done that before. Introduced basic rules then changed or broken then just because it moved things along. No one complained.

The engine they are gonna use is Frostbite 2.

Woah his face looks so real at a certain angle

I want them to work on animations more than anything. Stiff chatacters in cutscenes / gameplay, needs to die.

Skate-AK1958d ago (Edited 1958d ago )

Since they are using Frostbite 2 they will probably use the FIFA Impact Engine for the animation.

That, and bits of cloth and armor ghosting through eachother.

OT, these renders are gorgeous. Sorta puts in mind what ND could do next gen, given how good their stuff looks this gen.

SolDojo1958d ago

They licensed Frostbite for ME4 if I remember correctly so we might expect a bit different results for this one. Likely, it will be an improvement in essentially every area.

yea.. way more lens flare.

Looks good, but I'm not blown away like I was with the ME debut trailer during '06 when I first saw it in terms of the graphical leap. On this tech demo, the face looks real, but the lighting and how it reflects against the body looks current gen. Character models could have the sharpest high res textures, but if the lighting is wrong, the realism is not quite there.
