    In engine is not too dissimilar to CGI these days. Looking forward to seeing In game footage from next gen titles.

    Which basically confirms that it's a depiction of what a real-time cutscene might look like on XBSEX

    Beautiful. Microsoft did good when they acquired Ninja Theory.

    They're presumably using UE4 again. It's pretty awesome that visuals like this are in reach on day one with talented devs like NT.

    Looks lovely. Still: What a weird choice for a sequel. Like getting a movie sequel to One flew over the Cuckoo's nest Or Shutter Island.

    This had my jaws dropped hard, if the gameplay graphics look anywhere close to those then the leap would be way bigger than last gen. Excite!

    can't speak for this one, but senua's sacrifice gameplay graphics where almost on par with cutscenes.

    I have a strong feeling the visual fidelity of gameplay and realtime cinematics will transit ever more seamless than before due to everything is using the same asset quality and settings with the only major difference being cinematic lighting and camera angle.

    Once nice detail in the first shot of twig head people is that individual leaves on the trees are moving about. Not saying that it'll be like that in every game, but it's a nice change from current gen texture wibbling.

    I'm sure they've said that they'll be sticking with shorter game expediences. It'll be interesting to see exactly how many people have worked on this. Are they staying with small teams for a long span or throwing a large portion of the company behind each release. Sacrifice was around 20ish people?

    Honestly, one of the best parts is her teeth. Those are some nice looking teeth. Teeth are still generally something that doesn't look good in real-time graphics.

    I'm confused which ones are due to the artists efforts and which ones are due to hardware power and which ones are only possible due to both

    Impressive, but... "in-engine". :-? You can render at slow 15 FPS and then double it and play it as a smooth 30 FPS video, and other stuff. I'd like developers to show us true real-time stuff. I don't like to wonder how much of that will be seen in real-time.
