Some environmental art linked by a dev:
Looks nice, although I kinda miss the EQ2 desert / sahara style for the Commonlands.
Yeah, looks like a screen shot of the land. Looks similar (although about 13 years newer) to the original grass section of the commonlands. Mountains on one side and the grass on the other. Can't quite tell if there's a strip of desert near the mountain.
Looks awesome though!
Played: EQ1 (10 Years), Guild Wars, Rift, TERATried: EQ2, Vanguard, Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeons and Dragons Online, Runes of Magic and countless others...Currently Playing: GW2

Personally I don't think it's great but it's certainly not bad and given that it looks more like a screenshot than a blatant attempt to inspire awe than I can cut it some slack.
Looks good. Of course it's not a finished product, so maybe it will even be better. But frankly, that is good enough and hardly cartoonish.
I'm looking forward to getting more peeks here and there as they are released.
Originally posted by Margulis Well that pretty much confirms it's stylized graphics, but definitely looks WAY better than wow / wildstar type stylized. Looks like a decent mix. Hey if it takes dealing with somewhat stylized graphics to have a seamless world without chunk loading (Vanguard) I can deal. Also gives me hope after seeing the god awful concept art released a couple days ago
Exactly. It is not realistic per se, that would be a hardware killer unless you want to chop the world up into little pieces like SWTOR.
Originally posted by Aelious It also should quell fears of EQN being too cartoony of that's the color palette and shading that they are using.
I will say, cartoony or not, I prefer rich vibrant hues rather than drab and flat. WOW still looks good 9 years later.
Originally posted by Iadien Which dev posted this? Those look like PS2 screenshots to me.
Hmm it was one of the devs on Twitter earlier today (I have an account just to stalk / follow their tweets) but I cant find it now to link.
Edit: Also it has a 2013 copywrite stamp, I think PS2 would have had 2012 based on the year it was launched.

Gotta screenshot that stuff! They're not supposed to be sharing anything in-game. They look exactly like PS2 though.

They should look similar. It's using the same engine. :P
I hope these are EQN screenshots. But as of now I'm assuming this is Planet Side 2.
We need proof
I'm searching all the Dev twitters. Can't find any links. Did a reverse image search and nothing came up (which is a good sign).
Originally posted by William12 Of course it looks like PS2 people its the same game engine. Forge Light was designed for EQN, but they used it on PS2 remember EQN was suppose to be out first.
A game engine does not determine the graphical style of a game.
Originally posted by ice-vortex Those are Planetside 2 screenshots. If these were linked to by a dev, he would have posted the link.
Yeah definitely Planetside 2 or Amerish. We're being trolled.
