Xbox official Youtube uploaded a video.

This is the way you upload a video to Youtube (proper quality)

I thought it was the Crytek engine at first glance, wrong i was, its unreal engine 4 supported by dx12.

Gears 4 unreal engine 4 dx12 man!!! The devs making this game are not going to have the same resources and backing but they still got the game looking like this!

Imp0ssibl31255d ago

Yes, Unreal Engine 4 is an amazing engine. Even indie developers can make great looking games, but of course bigger studios will do better

Thanks for letting us know the platform. Please continue to keep us all posted on this in the future, because it is very important that we have this info.

This is gonna be one of the first games to actually push the PS4 to its limit or almost show us what it is actually capable of

Alexious1255d ago

About time, too. I'm really sick of remasters and stuff like that, we need innovative games such as this one.

blackout1255d ago (Edited 1255d ago )

And if it does is because of dx12.

Festano1255d ago

DX12 gaming will be so good!!

Indeed, and there's taming too...I want to ride a Velociraptor!

The foliage and lighting looks good, but the animation needs much better work.

Alexious1255d ago

You're right about that, but you should also consider that it's being made by a small studio and great animations are costly.

They'll improve over time though, it's not even available on Early Access yet.

Bigpappy1255d ago

I can appreciate that it is a small studio. But the animation is crucial to the perceived quality of the game, and they should fix it or be prepaid to sell it at a barging price. What I am saying, in short, is that if they can get decent animation, they may get away with charging top dollar or close and may people would play, because the presentation otherwise looks very good. It is not a knock on them, but rather constructive criticism.

I actually would not have easily believed this was done by a small studio if the animation wasn't so poorly done. It is seriously hurting the marketing of the game and their ability to sell many copies at a more rewarding price.
