My apologize: this graphic is really amazing

As you know, i opened and replying to different threads about my concern on the art style. However i took a bit of my time to analize, frame by frame, video “behind the scenes” and i changed my opinion. Let me explain through screenshots that i’ve saved and uploaded for you:

  1. first image shows 4 pikemen and a priest. You can see how many details are on single units. Pikemen have pieces of plate armor and a tradition medieval helmet (the same seen in Braveheart). Models are good and they seem Coh2 in some way

2)second image shows a model processing of a tree. Also here, really good detail

  1. this image shows a light british cavalry. The knight has some pieces of plate armour and a long spear. Horse model is good too.

So, after seeing all these image i can say that artist are doing a great work. They have to improve only some models, as mongolian general and infrantry, and i’m thinking that engine will improved as well before the final release.

Do you think we’ll see some zoom in options as Total war series? Teaser suggests so.

That’s all.

all this fuss about graphics is silly

Yeah it’s boring to discuss about that, they also said in an interview that they are not gonna make every single fan/nostalgic happy but just the major part.

This community is at its best when filled with strongly opinionated people who are willing to evaluate additional evidence, make concessions, and change their minds.

Great post, @nonlosojimmy. And tremendous use of images to show us your thoughts.

As long the discussions are constructive and not only criticism and derogatory. People should also understand what kind of game we are talking about. I seen people comparing AoE4 to Spellforce3 and that silly (at least for me) - I wasted like 5-6h by watching Spellforce3 gameplay and that game looks like more a worst version of POE/Diablo, do not hate me but that’s my feelings.

Yeah, I think for the most part we do an excellent job of keeping the opinions to be about the game and not about each other.

nice post! I think that is very good

the pic of the video… is a pic of VIDEO (no matter if it’s 4K)… is a video.

the real impression must be in the GAME, playing the game

so, the graphics may be really impressive :open_mouth: :open_mouth:
