Need for Speed’s Engine Can Produce Photorealistic Visuals

/ 5 years ago

New NFS game

Gaming sure has evolved a lot over the last few years, don’t you agree? All you have to do is compare the first game you every played with any modern title and you’ll quickly realize that today’s gaming engines are designed to provide an immersive and sometimes very realistic experience. A fine example is the impressive Frostbite 3 engine, which will be used power the upcoming Need for Speed and Star Wars Battlefront games. As far as Need for Speed is concerned, it seems that the engine has great potential to deliver photorealistic images, and thanks to a NeoGAF member named ShamePain, we can actually feast our eyes on a set of screenshots that compare the game’s cars and environments with reality.

It’s worth noting that the screenshots were taken in-engine and not in-game, which is a bit disappointing if I’m honest. The comparisons show off what the engine is capable of, but we shouldn’t really expect the final game to look this good. Nonetheless, it’s still a remarkable example of Frostbite 3’s complexity and prowess. Have a look at the screenshots below and let us know if you’re looking forward to the new Need for Speed.
