    Game may look fun, but it would be nice if it gets graphical bump.

    To be honest, I am kinda surprised that they even showed at current stage.

    for a thousand player map, with base building, crafting, and impressive draw distance to complement the shear size of the maps themselves? the graphics look fine.

    keep in mind, the game has to cope with whatever the player is going to build. If a player makes a cluster**** of polygons because they can't plan their base to save their lives, the game still needs to run smoothly when someone comes to relieve him of his treasured mediocrity.

    "Graphics" do not make a game better. That being said, it's hard 'graphically' to render lots and lots of stuff at great distances. Not to mention, incredibly bandwidth consuming. You run out of RAM, CPU, and bandwidth in no time if you attempted going for Battlefield-esque type visuals.

    The important thing (as was mentioned in the vid) is that the core gameplay mechanics look solid. They seem to have a good foundation to work off of.

    My only complaint is whether it will have actual cities like in DayZ....wouldn't mind putting my base atop a giant skyscaper if im being perfectly honest

    Yeah I was thinking the same thing. Also thought I saw some screen tear when he turned the camera real fast. Anyway looks pretty rough in its present state.

    Doesn't appeal to me that much but I'll wait until a better version is shown, I'm not talking graphics only, the gameplay looks dull so far.

    I can judge graphics based on highly compressed youtube videos. Also, not even beta.

    Atleast wait a few months before you cry "graphics suck, noty", please?

    well it's fair when people also praise graphics based on the same criteria.

    point is, right now it does look generic. so we'll see.

    Well, imo neither is valid.

    Also, afaik most of the videos of H1Z1 on youtube were from a twitch stream where it gets compressed and then later uploaded to youtube where it was compressed once again.

    Om not saying it looks awesome or anything, but given that + its not even in beta yet makes me atleast want to wait a bit before I judge the graphics.

    I recon it'll look similar to Planetside2. Not great but far from awful.

    After playing Final Fantasy 14, I have to disagree with you. This game looks like ass. If FF14 can look good, then this one can too.

    well FF14 looked like ass too in the first beta phase lol.

    you never know, it's possible the game might get a visual upgrade. but yeah, this is probably the base line so it won't go much further.

    me too, for sure man. i would be ok with the graphics if there was hell of a lot going on.

    Planet Side 2 looks gorgeous and has tons of crap going on. FF14 looked good even in Phase 1 but i'm sure looks much better now.

    i get why they want to show off this game so early, they want to make sure people buy more PS4s or stick with it because they want to show that lots of games are coming out for it. if this game wasn't on PC, we would not have seen it until later this year, much later.

    one thing i'm hoping for is that it's still in very early stages and PC games tend to be in early stages like this because they can test it out as they go on and since PC games are scalable, they can start at ****ty graphics and work their way up once it's out of beta stages.

    it's possible that the PS4 version might get a bit of an upgrade because they know how much resources they have available, which is difficult to judge on PC. OR they might just keep the graphics that way and upgrade them as they go along. it's clear that this game is low budget and possibly an experiment. so if it takes off, they might spend more money into it, if it didn't, no biggie, keep it low production, low player count, low maintenance etc.

    if you look at their monetizing strategy, the game is practically free.

    It's so annoying how people jump on the graphics bandwagon. Especially when games are in their early stages of development. A game like this is all about gameplay, and that's all I care about. I'm really excited because this has so much potential to be great, so hopefully they make it fun. Hopefully this comes to PS4 in the near future.

    i think if it were a console game then everyone has the right to bash on graphics because they are pretty bad. however, since this is a game that might possibly improve over time and for the reasons we think it may, gives it more leeway to give benefit of the doubt.

    no way you can play that game on n64 though. low production MMOs will be similar to this so either we take it or leave it.

    especially since it's not being specifically built for the PS4. it's a PC port.

    This game isn't a Twitch shooter type game. so, I am hoping that PC and PS4 guys get cross play with and versus eachother.

    Pretty please Sony
