    I dont think I've ever seen screenshots for an MMO this beautiful. And they're all in HD too. Completely irregardless of gameplay, it is graphically untouchable. FFXIV wishes it looked this good.

    Some of my favorites:

    Pretty sure I just HAVE to get a new gaming rig just to do TERA it's justice. Been putting it off for long enough.

    Been playing with maxed out graphics during korean open beta and had constant 60+ fps and smooth performance overall.And my computer system is almost outdated.

    In mine's it runs better than Rift, its not very hardware demanding.

    How can you play a game in korean ? :/

    How can you play a game in English? (Answer, with keyboard and mouse)

    Very nice screenshots and very tempted to postpone building a monster system (whether the game needs it or not is irrelevant) for whenever it launches.

    Got one question though, is the world seamless? If I'm not mistaken it is, just a confirmation please.

    well... Graphic is one thing... is gameplay there as well? *cought* Final Fantasy XIV *cought*

    Yup, i can confirm that, you have teleports to use in towns and what not, but yes it is seamless, the only loading screens are on instances and when you use these teleports.

    Cannot argue that it is beautiful, but for me I am just not a fan of the anime style. If gameplay rocks I might be persuaded to try swinging a giant axe around though...we'll see.

    It looks really great.

    Still, I think GW2 looks better. I could be wrong, but I also have the feeling based on the screenshots and footage I've seen that TERA  will be a mix of high and low levels of texture and detail, a bit like Aion was, with very detailed character models (up to even very subtle changes in facial expression and lively animation) but the environment of varying levels of detail.

     

    So, personally I find GW2 looking better than TERA, it looks catching though image

    Tera have much better gfx than Aion, i havent played GW2 so i cant speak for that, i plan to play both of them tho.

  • narakuunarakuu Member Posts: 348

    I like the look of GW2 and TERA and I will definitely be playing both, neither of them are however the superior in graphics to ffxiv from what I have seen so far.

  • KyleranKyleran Member LegendaryPosts: 38,201

    Shame that a game's graphics have almost nothing to do with whether or not I'll enjoy playing them.

    Gameplay over all, and that's what I'll be focusing on when judging Tera.

    And you clearly have not seen that other game they are going to release in 5 years, it looks better.

    Seriously, some people.... image

    Tera is a live game, GW2 is still in development.

    The skin resolution on the characters seems low compared to the highly detailed scenery. Kinda like they just decided to pick a color instead of have an actual texture. Spacifically the humans. Oddly the other characters seems to look fine, but then they seem to have more texture. Maybe the other characters had more filters on them. Perhaps it's the uncanny valley creeping in.

    GW2's art style may look better, but in terms of technical graphics it doesnt come close. Just watch this in HD:

    Have to admit that graphics in that video look very damn good. Still nothing really groundbreaking(gameplay wise) from Tera and I hate the art style. And please don't tell me aiming and doging is groundbreaking.....

    It is actually. It's been done better than any other MMO has hands down. But you'll see for yourself if/when you try it. Open Beta will be free of course.

    I realize I quoted the wrong thing by you, but you should be able to figure out what I'm talking about from context. :)

    I'd look at more videos if my internet was working better right now (Seriously?  4 minutes to load up a LITLE bit of an HD Youtube video, then stop again?), but from what I looked at, I didn't see anything that had the same sense of immense scale that for example the human home city has.  I'm not saying those dont' EXIST, I'm just saying I didn't see it.

    It's possible that they're using the technical side of things to have different goals.  After all, GW2 is shooting for multi hundred person 3 way battles over castles.  I would think that would be rough with really high end graphics.

    ... on a sad note, GW2 makes my computer cry, but Tera makes my computer cry even MORE.  That's what I get for having a computer so old that I'm pretty sure some of the forum goers here weren't born yet. :)

    Oh, I really do like how Tera looks, and I think it's top notch quality, I'm not detracting from that by the way, but I just personally like the design behind GW2 more.  Only other MMO where I like the design as much is Blade & Soul, but I collect art books and posters and even crappy Korean RPGs by Hyung-Tae Kim, so I'm biased.  ;)

    This is one of the things that interests me greatly about TERA - the combat.  I've enjoyed the action-style combat in Vindictus and DCUO, but don't think that either is a particularly good MMORPG.  TERA looks like it has better combat, AND is a deeper MMO than either, which to me would be a good thing.

    Of course, I haven't played TERA at all so far, so I'm not making any predictions on whether or not I'll like it.  It looks good, though.

    I would have to say just from what I've seen of TERAs combat, its still second place in my book in comparison with DCUO.  Just watching the videos I see just as much running as I do attacking,  and while some might call it being "tactical"  I see the same moves being used, in the same manner, with a long hiatus in between attacks.  Every video I've seen of TERA looks like this.  I will likely play the game just because the combat still looks fun,  but the combat in no way looks better than the fast paced reactive combat of DCUO.

    I don't like the anime/cartoonish look much, and I guess its arguable, but I think Vanguard looks better, it has more detail everywhere.   A lot of those pics have detail, then very bland surrounding areas, its not consistant quality.  A structure looks like it has high detail, then the land/sand around it is flat/dingy without detail......I guess its a way to cheat the eye.

     

    Looks fine though, for not being my thing, but like I said, I think Vanguard looks better.
