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

DSOGaming writes: "Talented 3D artist “Baolong” has finally finished his next-generation 3D character that is based on BioWare’s RPG series, Mass Effect. We’ve covered Baolong’s in the past and we strongly think that he deserves the spotlight. It would be cool to also see this character in motion, but that won’t happen anytime soon." (Mass Effect 4, Next-Gen, PC, PS4, Unreal Development Kit, Xbox One)

Not impressive face modeling and environment as a next-gen game !IMO
This is in-game modeling of Joel, the main character in The Last of Us . it looks more impressive to me and run on current gen hardware .

Just because you like the design of the character more, doesn't mean it looks more impressive. The one in the video much higher quality.
NewMonday  +   840d ago
the ME model is a very cool design, want him to be the default main character model or at least one of the presets.

and about preset character models, why do they always look generic and ugly? why cant they put just a little effort and make them like this one or some of the great models in Skyrim mods?
d3nworth1  +   840d ago
The one in the video definitely has more polygons but its not much of a step up over the last of us. This just shows that we're beginning to reach the pinnacle of graphics. Where games just can't look anymore realistic.
Pandamobile  +   840d ago
It's true that we're approaching the plateau of computer graphics quality, the Last of Us is still pretty far from being the pinnacle.
LocutusEstBorg  +   839d ago
It'll look like shit when it's running on the console, like every other console game does. It'll be low poly, jagged and blurry.
solid_warlord  +   839d ago
We'll reach the pinnacle of graphics when we reach Avatar quality in "Real Time" but that prob wont happen until 20 years time

I have to disagree. Though Last of Us looks really impressive it's not on the same level as the character in this video. If you look at best face model this gen I would say Beyond is even more realistic than Last of Us.
ratcop22  +   840d ago
Ok. Beyond looks way better than this. And HONESTLY, the last of us is pretty much on the smae level as this.
Conzul  +   840d ago
The TLoU screenie exceeds in detail but lacks in lighting, compared to the nextgen demo.
plaZeHD  +   840d ago
Agreed

@walker

cool bullshot, we all know the real in game character models will be similar to this;

still impressive for 8 year old hardware, but nothing like all the fake screens naughty dog likes to post from the pc dev build

Looks impressive to me compared to current gen consoles, sh*t dat lighting and the face detail.

Keep in mind that all cutscenes in Last of Us are probably done in the same way as in the uncharted games. All cutscenes are pre-rendered (not really real time), and they use different models with higher detail, and the whole thing is in higher resolution as well. Its pretty obvious too :/

If the above video is indeed in real time, and with UE3, then it is kind of impressive imo

Joel looks low res when compared to this model. Sure, the model may be better but the textures look like shit when compared with the ones used in the video.
kevnb  +   840d ago
naughty dog have some great artists that make up for the outdated hardware.

I agree everything I just saw is things that can be done on PC right now.
DeadSpaced  +   840d ago
I'd love to see this character model in action. It's not near as beautiful if it doesn't run right.

"Unreal engine? bet that thing took 18 minutes to load up!!!"
lol....i joke, i love games that use it.
chukamachine  +   840d ago
Yeah the face loads in as your talking. Just a blob at first.
BuffMordecai  +   840d ago
I think I'm done with ass effect.
DeadSpaced  +   840d ago
Your comment says "hate", but Mordecai's attitude and newly found muscles say "appreciate".

Well since Mass Effect 4 will be using Frostbite 2 I'm guessing the models will be even more realistic than this.
Rupee  +   840d ago
Yeah mass effect 1-3's facial design/animations were pretty awful so it would be hard not to improve...
OmniSlashPT  +   840d ago
Everything is better than a game running in UDK. I don't understand how that became a standard, I guess its because its cheap and easy to use in comparison to other branded engines.
KontryBoy706  +   840d ago
now make him move... 12fps. Bring this on to PC... there's no need to wait. There are rigs that laugh at Far Cry 3 and Crysis right now. It's time for an update in engines across the board
Norrison  +   840d ago
I'm pretty sure PC gaming will reach the pinnacle of graphics by 2015 a year after both AMD and Nvidia release their "next gen" GPUS which will be dramatically better than current GPUS

Yeah and they'll reach the pinnacle of the pinnacle in 2017 when they release the dramatically over dramatic next gen next gen GPU's over the next gen future current GPU's.
NeoTribe  +   840d ago
Thats actually what it would have looked like if it was a ps3 exclusive.
weap0nx  +   840d ago
crysis 1 still looks better than 75% of the games thats out today. that in clues crysis 2 & soon to be 3
DivineAssault  +   840d ago
looks about right.. Im sure nx gen will be similar to this after a few years of optimization.. Unreal 4, luminous, etc need some time to be worked with to create visuals that are native 1080p 60FPS on consoles.. They will be downscaled im sure too cuz nx gen wont be a massive jump

Lol, no its gonna look like current gen with better textures and not all the effects are going to be baked in or pre rendered. (and a couple cool new effects that were too demanding).
