Gonna assume the graphics are pretty early, this looks noticeably worse than Gears UE even. Gameplay seems like Gears 3 though, which is good. Does he change his loadout at any point? Wondering what options there are this time.
EDIT: Okay, carrying on into the video shows there's some issue with texture load (really staying true to classic Gears hahah), not worried.
Its Unreal Engine 4 this time around. And i really dont think that the graphics in MP will see a Boost. They probably want that steady 60fps. Which is cool, but disappointing for people who expected good graphics in MP too.
Irc Rod Ferguson confirmed to someone on twitter that the MP is 1080p60fps. So yeah. If they would drop the resolution, they probably could get some better effects into etc
Haven't played Gears for ages, but this seems to play/look almost exactly how I remember Gears 3 playing/looking, although it's obviously very early days I assume there will be significant visual improvements.
Visually looks abit rough. Those blood splatters look pretty bad/cheesy, hope they sort those for the main game. But then Halo 5 looked rough in beta - it's great to see more proper betas rather than demos with bugs hidden behind a 'beta' title.
Game looks like Gears though! Seems quite reserved in terms of changes, looks v.v.similar.
I'd wait until we get some proper footage though, compression on that video seems pretty bad. They should probably just drop the embargo early now or at least release an official video.
