    Titanfall has a more sci-fi pistol.

    DF's breakdown won't be helpful. Alex is just going to obsess over the nice looking hands. :-D

    He actually had a bit to say about what he saw today on ResetEra:

    Time for 343 to transition and embrace Unreal Engine 5. Slipspace Engine ain't it, chief. :no:

    Yeah, the elite shield effect looks awful.

    UE would be even worse for trying to do openworld and 60fps. ;)

    If Jayco is right about the lighting model.
    Yea, I think proper RT lighting, GI, and shadows, as well as fixing pop-in and texture assets. Sure the game will be good looking.
    But that's a huge laundry list for launch. I'm super confused as to why they didn't set all detail to maximum and say this is the PC version or something.

    Reach didn't need 5GB for its texture detail. :|

    well I don't think things can get worse than this. So I suppose there won't be a discussion of downgrades when it's released. lol I'm just being mean. But yea, it looks like a deep work in progress, no polish, low settings.

    I cannot envision someone at 343 taking this screenshot and saying "yes, this is good".

    they may plan full RT effect, maybe lighting + reflections, while still hitting 60fps, so that might explain the lower detail, but once RT is in it should look substantially better

    Yes, they must be planning on this using RT in the final game but its not yet ready to be shown, thats the only reason I can think of it looking so bad. If not then :shocked:
    But WTF did MS even show it in this state, its rightfully so the butt of memes at the moment

    I think the game is just unfinished. I though there was a bug with the lighting when I saw the video (like the issues FF7R has with texture streaming in some levels) but the official screnshots don't look good either (looks much better in motion) so I guess it's just the state of the game as of today.

    And the gameplay, gun mechanics or how the warthog behaves looks already very good.

    The gameplay video looked like B-reel footage used to supplement something more bombastic. Screwy marketing decisions (screenshots included).

    Not the best showing to be honest but there's still time to improve in some areas.

    Gameplay looked great (the guy/gal playing the game wasn't very good though), lots of Halo 1 and 2 vibes. Looked really promising to me.

    Graphics wise it looked unfinished and buggy? Pop ins, lightning issues, poor textures etc. Strange that they opted to show the game in this condition?
