Yeah this is alright but I've seen the same face already with white hair in the gamespot preview.
Alec Ryder face looks ok, I mean look at the disparity. You can see he looks like a stern man, and the stare doesn't look as derpy as the others. Really confusing why the other faces couldn't be at that same standard.
Damn they really messed it up. It's not exactly like they were amazing with it in the first place but you just see they really messed up with the eyes for some reason. Who at Bioware sees that and says ''Yeah, let's go with this. This looks pretty damn good''? Jeez. I'm of course referring to the gifs from recent footage now.
It seems that the game has received a noticeable graphical downgrade ever since the first reveal, most notably the eye shaders were drastically reduced among with other post process effects. Considering even the pc 4k version from their videos don't come close to the reveal trailer quality I'm not holding my breath the ps4 pro 1080p mode would introduce these effects back, although i wish they could patch it in the future.
After seeing the atrocities of the character creation, that people would still want to play with anything other than default male or female Ryders... Ugh.
I get that you'd want to customize your avatar, but damn as bad as the default are, they still look way better than any customized character I've seen so far. In 2017, on an engine like the Frostbite 3 and on such a big, high profile AAA game, it's pretty sad. They really dropped the ball on those characters.
Anwyay, won't change the fact I'll be there day one cause game looks awesome anyway.
i do wish the colourisation of the skin was more in line with the first image though. it's just more interesting to look at, as opposed to the retail version where it's all very monotone blue man group looking.
texture quality is actually improved though. but lighting looks so much flatter.
Why would you think that? there are multiple engines out there (including Frostbite!) which can in principle render eyes at that fidelity in realtime.
Hell, Epic has eye shading at that fidelity (or better) in their 60 FPS MOBA.
