In a new blog post from the developers of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, The Astronatuts, they explain how their game will sport some of the most realistic environment pieces ever created.
The blog post goes into heavy detail on how the team is creating their world using photogrammetry technology, which happens to be some pretty complicated stuff.
According to Andrzej Poznanski, one of the game’s lead developers, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter will include, “some of the most realistic environment pieces ever created for a video game.”
He continues on to say that, “Assets are no longer simplistic approximations of reality – they are reality. But it’s not that somehow we have magically rewired our brains to be the ideal reality replicators…”
When the full blog post airs in the next hour or so, you’ll see some pretty crazy 3D models that you have to see to believe. There’s a couple games coming out in the near future using this type of technology, including The Forest, Get Even and of course, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. We’ll have to wait and see how it all turns out, but this is some very exciting technology.
