Ever since I saw Final Fantasy 15's gameplay video I've been wondering why CD Projekt Red had to downgrade The Witcher 3, the new FF XV looks just as good as the original E3 gameplay of TW3. Both are open world RPGs.
If you are talking about the E3 video or the 15 gameplay video then no, it is nowhere near the detail found in TW3. Essentially all you seen was a battle sequence in a very limited environment in the E3 video and not an overly impressive open world gameplay portion. I'm not saying that it isn't impressive or doesn't look to be a good game, but you are talking about 2 totally different scenarios for graphics here. Environment scale is completely different, detail level is completely different, character detail/model is completely different, view distance is low, texture work is horrible, shown geometry isn't impressive, etc. Having said that FF15 looks like a good title, but I honestly don't see how its visually comparable to TW3.
Honeslty look at the lack of detail in the video https://youtu.be/XQqFhhz_7V0
Comparing this to TW3 and particularly the target renders of early TW3 it is a solid step below.Edited by Woundingchaney - 6/13/16 at 5:03pm
