This makes me excited for the direction gaming is heading. By all means I don't think every game needs to look as real as possible because it just wouldn't suit games like Limbo, as it is no their art direction, but for games such as battlefield, killzone etc...

I've really want a WW2 game to be made for next gen and i'd love to see technology like this implemented into it.

I agree, this type of animation enhancement would be perfect for a new ww2 game. I'm getting bored of modern/future shooters. Hopefully this gen will bring back WW2 games with stunning visuals. However there has already been a massive advancement in facial animation as seen in Ryse and Infamous Second Son.

Very nice. Does this mean more Andy Serkis?!? His direction and acting with Ninja Theory games was incredible!
