So it seems that Square Enix has a new graphics engine. "Luminous" they call it. And they decided to show off some images of it. I guess white walls and slow moving characters that just walk is pretty high tech.
- Them walls... -
According to Edge:
- "Square Enix chief technical officer Yoshihisa Hashimoto claimed that despite its startlingly realistic visual fidelity and new features, Luminous Studio can reduce game development costs by up to 30 per cent, and expects it to enable faster development cycles." and " the engine includes cloth and fluid simulation, realtime reflections and highly efficient tessellation techniques that lower the level of detail of 3D models with minimal memory usage cost."
And now I guess it wont be used because all that the PC gets are console ports. Sweet.
