    Actually maybe the game aint so bad

    if you watch the top video it looks to be a completely different game, I assume the above is with everything turned off and just with placeholder graphics

    @Nesh

    btw Ive fixed the horendous pop-in, its played with a isometric camera so I didnt care before but now I thought I better improve that

    OK, gameplay looks so good. Familiar souls-like. The magic looks like it's a first class citizen and looks amazing. Game looks amazing. Only bad thing so far is that it's an open world game. :(

    Despite that, I'm going to have to try to finish it. Prepare for pain. Lots of pain. :p My early potential game of the year for 2022.

    I wonder if they'll get Bluepoint to do a current gen visual upgrade. :twisted:

    Very strange game graphically, The atmosphere, ideas etc are brilliant
    but graphically its so inconsistent, parts of it look really well done but other parts look completely unfinished

    Yeah, I can't get over the flat looking cape with fake normal mapped folds, the string-of-cards hair, the very noticeable pop-in, the trees full of flat bunch of leaves cards, etc. Quite bittersweet, honestly.

    On the mixed quality of the graphics, there's probably something to be said about a company with around 300 employees creating a cross gen open world with complex systems. It's probably inevitable that some things have to give or are of relatively poor quality.

    (Not sure how many of those 300 are on the game either)

    I think it looks pretty darn good. Sure, it's not Demon Souls PS5 kind of good, but that game is also much smaller scale, and of course focused on one machine.

    not looking bad for a fromsoftware game as they were never known from top notch graphics, scene with dragon fighting was impressive

    Remember, this is From Software we're talking about. They can make some pretty good looking games, but they aren't known for really pushing the hardware. Even if this specific title had been exclusive to current gen consoles, it likely would have looked the same just due to their capabilities.

    Additionally, this is their first truly open world game (significantly harder graphically than a "corridor" style game like past Souls games), which stretches their abilities even further making it even more difficult for them to make a game that graphically stands out as amoung the best.

    For example, Dark Souls 3 and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice looked good on PS4/XBO, but was nowhere near being among the best looking games on those platforms and they weren't even open world.

    Yes, absolutely. It think it's always fascinating to see where smaller to mid sized team focus their efforts.

    (They should still sort out those bloody trees)

    AND it's crossgen, right? So at least we'll probably get 4k or close to, at 60fps on X/5
