Just another quick update for our lovely community here at ModDB. Please note that this is NOT the 2009 cinematic trailer, rather just updated in-game footage showing more 'interesting' environments rather than the previously uploaded video showcasing a canals environment.
However, please note this footage is still running off an older build (on the Episode 1 engine). Everything you're seeing including the size of levels, the amount of foliage and all of that great stuff is running smoothly on the Episode 1 engine.
*pat on back*
We are currently working on a cleaner version of the Orange Box port which will allow us to amplify the visual fidelity even more. The Orange Box will allow us to utilize new features including HDR (High Dynamic Range Lighting) as well as Dynamic Shadows and an increased limit of detail sprites (even more foliage basically!)
Please note (about the video) that this is an older build with older code. The environment that is showcased in the video is NO WHERE near finished ( the level is called Quagmire ) so please keep that in mind.
Otherwise, please enjoy!
