Square Enix has unveiled its new Luminous Engine, which will offer photo-realistic graphics for the next generation of consoles.
The day when the line between reality and digital recreation is too thin to see just got a bit closer. At a press conference in Japan last week, Square Enix unveiled its Luminous Engine for next-gen consoles, and it may be a game-changer.
The engine also uses “procedural animation techniques,” which uses a database of motion captured animations, then adapts as necessary. If a rendered person is walking, then that person has a helmet or additional weight added to them, the animation will reflect the change in weight and react accordingly.
The engine is still a long way from reaching the public, but when it does, it will be used in everything from casual games to triple AA titles.
