While running tests of the new World Terrain System we managed to get some before-after screenshots which give you a glimpse of the dramatic effect these changes will bring to the way Agon looks.
This is one of the many steps towards the complete graphical and animation update to the game. We've already had a preview of some of the new character models and their equipment, and learned of the addition of directx 11 to the game and about Aventurine's new in-house motion capture studio to be used to completely redo the game's animations. The developers are also working on adding normal maps to the game and several other features that will dramatically impact the way things look.
It's important to mention that the new World Terrain System will not impact the game's performance.
