    some buildings ugh , but yeah once u add cars , bad guys and npcs (plust birds and whatnot) it gets better....

    Pretty nice looking buildings.  But I have to ask: is this a "period" game, set in the 1920s or 30s?  There were entirely too many smokestacks, even on what appeared to be apartment complexes, to fully pass as a "futuristic" city.  So, I'd question some of their art decisions.  Good images, but the mix seems to stand out, almost like different teams built different buildings with entirely different guidelines.  If it's just intended to be old sections of the city, where is the decay and deterioration?

    Let's hope the game itself doesn't include more examples of this kind of unfocused or fragmented or uncontrolled design decisions.

    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

    If the goal was to match the visuals of City of Heroes circa 2008, then mission accomplished. Can't wait to see the low poly NPCs waiting around to be murdered.

    Seven years later and this is the best they've got? Ship of Heroes started up later, didn't have a successful kickstarter and they STILL look better and are closer to launch.

    I'm glad I left these guys back in 2013.

    Even in 2004 we had bump mapping. Apparently they've missed some routine graphics design memos.

    It's amazing to see how they can make Unreal Engine look ugly.

    Did they not have anyone outside the dev team watch this first? Did they really believe this looked good enough to show?

    What a mess of poorly designed and rendered buildings. 7 Days to Die has better looking buildings/towns than this, and it's voxel based.

    Buildings look so realistic that it looks like a presentation to build a building in real life... doesn’t even look like a game. If that even makes sense LOL.

    bldgs are very blocky. I don't care that much, just release the game. I need a decent superhero game.

    Big agree with this. There are literally UE4 tutorial videos that do a way better job.

    Someone else said 7 years, wow wtf are they doing? Is it like 3 guys?

    Ship of Heroes doesn't look much better. City of Heroes Homecoming puts these both to shame on so many levels. If you are looking for a good superhero game City of Heroes Homecoming is it and that doesn't look like it will change for the foreseeable future.

    It just looks like City of Heroes. We've waited this long for what equates to a new zone for an outdated game...?

    I joined the forums of The Phoenix Project in 2013. When I saw that they weren't going in a direction I felt they should be I left after just two months and went elsewhere.

    If this is the best they've got to show off then they've perfectly met my expectations and I see CoT shutting down within three years of launch, if they even manage to make an official launch. From what I've seen it looks like nothing but the wrong vision and a mismanagement of money from the start.

    Of course, I've been wrong before. So....... we'll see.

    Just a random google for Unreal Engine City Scape tutorial.

    Now THAT is impressive.

    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.

    Some of the special buildings look ok. The city blocks with smokestacks everywhere looks like placeholders, or something from a different game.

    Weird.

    I can't quite put my finger on it, but something doesn't look right with this video.

    Well I can say with 100 percent confidence it is not UE4 fault.

    I like it. Not everything needs photorealistic graphics!
  • TokkenTokken Member RarePosts: 2,340
    If its like CoH, then that is a good thing for me.... but the graphics should be more modern. lol
