After Dark souls 2, Watch dogs and Alien colonial marines I no longer trust the early visual presentations.. If the game looks this way after release I will eat my own words!

After some recent disappointments, i will only believe in it when I actually play it. I'm not falling for the hype.

Isn't this the game whose trailer it was discovered was partially using pre-rendered rather than in-game footage?

I still find it hard to believe that Massive Entertainment has gone from making real-time strategy games to making this.

Imagine a zombie survival MMO with this engine!!!

The art really looks immersive. It's not easy to make a post apocalyptic scene look dystopic and beautiful the same time.

Man, its so good to look at. Also did I miss a gameplay trailer at some point because some of the gameplay they showed I have never seen before.

This is really astonishing. Really hope it looks this good whenever The Division comes out.

Game does look great, and one of the only MMO type games that I am interested in.


Its nice to see an them not just focusing on brute force for the engine, which I understand as taking smart optimizations, and not just needing massive amounts of hardware resources to run it properly.


This game isn't gonna be out for a while, but when it does come out, I suspect I will have a whole new rig built by then, and will be investing in The Division.

I really wish it was a year from now and I was already playing this damn game. I can't remember the last time I looked so forward to a game before.every time I see a video for The Division I get super hard...and super wet

@dannyodwyer With games looking the way they do these days, it's so easy for me to just stop and get lost in the artificial atmosphere. Here's to hoping the gameplay is as engaging as the graphics engine. Are you pickin' this up for PC or console?
