    Nvidia HairWorks trailer shows Witcher 3 fur tech, promotes glossy coats



    Sometimes I worry about the endless arms race into increasingly realistic visual technology. Games are expensive and the economy is unstable—it's increasingly more difficult to justify the risk of an untested idea. Meanwhile, as studios are becoming better at realising the grizzled face of Heroman MacStubble, it feels like we should be praising advancements in AI, writing, and, more than anything, truly innovative and enjoyable systems.


    Other times, though, I see a video like this, and I think, "wow, that is some dynamic wolf fur."

    Really glad I've moved to the green team. They always seem to have little nice features such as this.

    Even though it says developers have control over the look and feel of the hair, seems like all the examples should be in a shampoo ad flinging their hair in slow motion :P

    Well I guess that comes down to if you think the outlay for an Nvidia GPU is 'worth it'?
