Daniel Vavra, the man who built the Mafia, is now creative director at Warhorse Studios and Eurogamer Czech have some ridiculously impressive footage of the developer’s unannounced fantasy RPG. The game isn’t due for a couple of years but the tech, a modified CryEngine 3, allow us to glimpse a future-game so realistic that the monitor is almost like a window. A window that looks out onto a farm, surrounded by woodland and with a muddy puddle on one of its worn tracks. It’s a tech demo and nothing is actually happening in the superbly realised location, but, damn, that really is the best muddy puddle I’ve seen in ages.
If Google Street View worked like this, I’d spend all my time being a virtual tourist.
Thanks to Eurogamer (not Czech), because I do not know what things like this mean: “Praze s prvními veřejně publikovanými záběry naznačují, jak by jednou mohlo vypadat ještě neohlášené husitské RPG.” I would have picked up ‘RPG’ and guessed this was a more character-based Farming Simulator spin-off.
