We all know that the maps are gonna look total BOSS, but seriously, just look at the graphics upgrade on Eder both face and equipment aswell. This looks really bloody good and is a big improvement from the first game!

I agree 100%!

 

The graphics are so much better, judging by what we've been shown, and a lot of interesting combat and spell FX have much more oomph to them. Everything looks really promising.

I just hope the game still runs smoothly. I don't want them to outdo themselves.

 

It is beautiful, though.

The improvement of the character models is a huge deal for me, as it will allow for more immersion in the story. I also really like how your clothes (and hair possibly?) will be blown around by the wind. Hopefully there are more options for character model customization when you create a new character as well (facial features, etc).

I must admit that I find the attention given to the models is somewhat strange as is it is an isometric game. I mean, there are the paper dolls but still...

 

But yeah, the game looks immense judging from the video.

graphics seems to be an improvement. but it seems awkward how eder looks like now. maybe he's missing his neck. what i'm more interested in this time around would be the character animations.

So what specs do you need to run the game? Will linux still be supported?

Yeah, nice facelift. The animations look better, they've done something to the lighting model, and we're finally getting wind effects like they originally wanted to do. Those animated high-rez paperdolls are rad too ofc.

Specs haven't been announced, but I doubt they're going to be much increased over Pillars 1; at worst you might have to turn off some fancy particle or lighting effects. Linux is listed as a supported platform.

I have a question.. anyone seen the 3D model of Eder on fig? Why it look so different from the image on top? I much prefer the high quality 3D models instead.

Linux is supported, and Feargus said they are using new tech for the capes and it should work in Linux now. Just figured I'd add that little tidbit.

Edit: and the graphical facelift looks great!

I wouldn't expect those until the game is within six months of release, perhaps later (some games wait until about a month before release to prevent disappointment if they can't optimize as much as they'd like).

Was pc requirements an issue in PoE? I never had a single issue with load times or graphics on my mid tier rig.

Feargus said the requirements would be about the same.  It has better graphics but is more optimized.

No they weren't. Apart maybe from loading screens that took around 10 secs.

So... how long do you reckon before there is the PoE version of BG Tutu?  (For those that don't know, tutu was a mod that ran BG1 in the BG2 engine).
