So... Is it just me, or did FF16's graphics look.... not much better than 15's? Considering what we saw of Halo Infinite, I hope this gen doesn't actually suck.

It actually looks worst than FFXIII to me. Will be buying it regardless as I am a final fantasy trash but even the 4K trailer dont do the game justice. Square probably spent all those budgets on FF7Remake.

@sakaixx: Now that i think about it, they do look worse. But gameplay looks fun, and interested in the story. The thing is, it looks like they actually are putting more effort into FF7 Remake. Tbh, thos whole show, like Xbox's, was a bust. Most of the games looked unimpressive, and didn't get a release date. Regardless, I'm still getting both systems and FF16 since I'm a gamer.

I'm honestly wondering how the cows will defend this after their bashing of halo infinite.

I'm sure the graphics will turn out great as expected from FF.

Game itself......can't get worse than XV.

@thatdbfan: Devil May Cry battle designer joined Square sometimes ago and this game maybe the results. Seeing he only joined very recently I am guessing the game is probably 2-3 years off.

I think it was the quality of the stream. It looked awful to me, but then FFXV looked like shit to me even in 4K. Low res textures in high resolution... a huge 'nope' for me but at least FFVI doesn't look like it's going to rely on four 'bro-esque' boy band dweebs driving around in a fucking car so yeah that's something.

@Pedro: Yup, expecting 8k exclusive games day one with a cherry on top. PC is honestly the only way to go in the foreseeable future. Running 1660 super with r5 1600x will probably be good for two more years.

@sakaixx: It definitely has more advanced graphics than XIII, but I have to agree that XIII had better art direction. Same with XV, that was technically advanced but also kinda bland. People can say whatever else they want to about XIII, but it was stunning.

The graphics look somewhat better than FF15, and about on-par with FF7R, but rendered at a higher 4K resolution. It looks more like an upscaled PS4 game, rather than a next-gen PS5 game. I think it may have originally been intended for the PS4.

But the gameplay looks more promising. The veteran Capcom game designer Ryota Suzuki (Devil May Cry V, Dragon's Dogma, Marvel vs Capcom) joined Square Enix a couple of months ago. And FF16's combat is already starting to resemble Devil May Cry. It could very well end up having the best action combat in the series.

As for the story, and overall look and feel, it reminds me a lot of FF14, along with FF4 and FF12 vibes, and influences from Berserk and Dragon's Dogma. It also looks rather dark for a mainline FF game. But I don't know about the medieval setting. I'd much rather prefer a sci-fi setting.

Since it’s YoshI P I’m not too concerned about graphics I’m more excited about how it ties into FFXIV. Ifrit looks like the FfXIV version but Titan looks like the FFXV version. It also may be trying to go for an M rating which is note-worthy itself. As long as they don’t pull members from remake team I’m okay with what they try to do with FfXVI.

Tough news if you think this trailer trashes “next gen graphics”.....did you miss the part where it stated this ran on a PC?

Hugely concerning that this game appears to be running on a pure FF14 engine, right down to the character creator for the game models. Combat looks solid, story looks decent, I like the idea of playing a protagonist throughout their life and eventual downfall into an anti-hero. But man, SE has a TON of work to do on the engine.

@Angryduck67: doesn't matter. It is Square's mainline FF title and Square not going to embarrass themselves.

I think many of SE's top graphic designers are working for the FF7R sequel at Division 1 and Project Athia at Luminous Productions. The FF14 team is known for its excellent storytelling and world design, not graphics. Personally, I think this is enough if they can create a story as good as FF14. I am also excited about the battle design that inherits the elements of DMCV.

Yeah. They did a great job of reviving FF14 and still keeping the momentum going. I hope they haven't burned out yet because they put too much into FF14.

Not the prettiest game, but don't care.

- Wasn't actively annoyed by the trailer.

- Looks like FF might get some good action based combat.

- Yoshi P.

First time in a loooooong time I've actually been interested in a FF game.

Standard Square procedure of burdening their top level staff with multiple projects. Nomura helm 2-3 projects at the same time too at one point and all gets delayed lol.

I thought it looked great ... don't know what everyone is talking about ... and i'm serious, i thought it was a good looking game, at least on par with FFVII Remake.

The game has many juicy examples. FF7R is very clearly held back by the PS4 and by a alot. All the main characters look good, particle effects look good, some locations look nice, but in general, its pretty bleh.

The characters look so plastic. These anime art styles would look better cel-shaded or stylized. Photorealism makes them look shittier.

I just realized you barely see any rule 34 for FF XV, which tells you how ugly the character designs were. I find tons for XII, for example.

Looks pretty sweet, most remarkable is that they seem to be going away from a team based angle to just focused on one playable character, makes sense if they insist on real-time battles!
