    The character models need a lot of work, but everything else looks very nice.  From the small details in the scenery (some look to be clues from what I saw) to the breaking walls/celings.  Some really nice scenery shots near the end.

    The story scenes alos look like a very nice addition to give the game some immersion.

    Not bad, hope they give us more info soon.

    I agree the character models almost seem a step back from Conan models. No idea of course if this is just because of Alpha development and texture/shader things are not there.

    Conan still has some of the best looking avatars from appearance to armor/clothing textures.

    Looking forward to the skill build system, 7 active and 7 passive skills at a time - and no levels. I wonder how they will make it accessible for folks used to typical genre mechanics. Like Mage, Ranged, Heal, Melee. Say I want to be a sorceror how would I know what kind of build I should use as a template to learn from?

    Maybe they will have like a title system that is based on the kinds of active skills? For example, I have a fireball, thunderbolt, mage armor, and greatmace skill equipped that would equal a "Battlemage" but replace say Fireball with Cure and it changes to "Baptist" or something...

    Nice video, I liked it.

    Character graphics and animations need an upgrade at least to AoC levels, scenery, environments and monsters are starting to look good though. I also liked the music being heard in the video, some of it reminded me of Resident Evil 2.

     

    The game is still 1-1.5 year away, so they have still enough time to work on things, we'll see how the characters will shape up.

    I now they say it is an "action" MMORPG but they are much more vague then other "action" MMORPGs like DCU and TERA. 

    Can anyone tell if you actually aim in this game?  I didn't see a crosshair which led me to believe you choose a target and use autolock as you run around.  I would much rather prefer a aiming system.  It would be awesome if headshots did more damage.

    I'm still interested in this game.

    The combat part was a bit dissapointing at first look. They sure used a lot of big words to describe it, bur from what I saw there was not any new or innovative or remotely unique about it. The game very much look like alpha stage and needs some polishing. I would hope they make some more in depth combat videos as what I saw so far really seems to be as far away from my personal preference as it could be. But too easy to judge as the combat sequences was not a lot and it was no real info how things works.

    An aiming system would be sweet, that would be proper skill vs skill in PvP :)

    Shockingly bad compared to AoC. The character models are uninspired, low poly and down right ugly. The animations are stiff. If this is what they are delivering i have no intention in even trying it. The environments look like a PS2 games with added lights. Non shaded objects all over the floor and seemingly no textures at all, except some shiny solid color surfaces.

    Highly dissapointed.

    Let's hope this was just a very early alpha with no shaders.

    I don't even think the game is in alpha yet.  Just guessing, but I wouldn't expect to see this game until at least 2012.

     

    I'm with you that the visuals could use some work, but I could live with what they are right now as long as the gameplay that has been described is delivered.

    Heard they are self publishing this one with the funds they had from AOC.  Apparently Eidos screwed them over with AOC by forcing a launch through.  Not sure how true that is but that is the rumor.  So should be interesting.

  • MMO.MaverickMMO.Maverick Member CommonPosts: 7,619

    I didn't know they were going to self publish. Seems harder to me.

     

    Anyway, I expect the characters and animations to be at least on the same level as AoC when launch is close. After all, it'll be 3-3.5 years after AoC then.

    Graphics are important, but they're not the end all / be all.
