Technical graphics usually push the latest hardware to their limits or look so real you can’t tell if it is or not. These games can exist on consoles especially if they can pull off amazing feats of trickery. Right people are looking for the first game that looks next-gen. Sadly, until we get away from the cross-generation releases that won’t be in full swing.
Requiem may not be perfect, and may set the series back a few steps, but one thing that can’t be denied is that this looks like a true next-generation title. The graphics are unlike any other this year. While many games looked very good in this regard A Plague Tale impresses with it’s insane lighting, ray-tracing, sweeping vistas, incredibly detailed textures, and character models. This is probably the first true next-generation game as it wasn’t released for older consoles.
