It’s hard to get excited about World of Warcraft in a visual sense, but if you’ve ever held out hope that the game might get a sequel, or at least a more modern makeover, then this is the video for you.
Quixel is a company that sells “megascans”, the enormous textures that are used in photogrammetry, which is the way games like Battlefront are able to achieve almost photo-realistic visuals. That’s amazing work for the present, but the future is obviously going to look even better.
When I reviewed Half-Life remake Black Mesa back in 2012, I said the project “does not look like a modern video game”. A newer (and far more limited) remake, Project Lambda, does.
