It is one thing to say that you have done a major graphical overhaul to your video game sequel and leave it at that. It is an entirely different beast when the company goes over the graphical improvements in great detail by explaining everything bit by bit like BioWare has just done for Dragon Age 2. On the BioWare blog the team behind the graphical technology have went into extensive detail about the new engine they are using; the Lycium Engine.
The image above is just a taste of what they explain on their website but it shows the new terrain and sky editing tools that they have at their disposal to create more realistic looking, and realistic behaving clouds and provide an enhanced visual experience in the outdoor worlds which usually start to look bland at a distance. Don’t take my word for it however, there is more on the way from the development team as the days bring us closer to the March 8th release date.
