THE GRAFICAL PART 

In this subsection of our review, the main graphical aspects of this game are revealed. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphics settings and the quality of the development of the main visual aspects.

SUPPORTED OC AND GRAPHICS API

Forspoken is supported by Windows 10/11.

steam 

The priority and primary graphics API for Forspoken is DX12 .

A GAME

Luminous Engine is a game engine developed by the Japanese company Square Enix for internal use. The engine was created as a cross-platform - compatible with IBM PC-compatible computers running Microsoft Windows and game consoles. Announced in 2010, the Luminous Engine replaced the studio's previous internal engines, including Crystal Tools, which had become obsolete by the time Final Fantasy XIII-2 was developed, and the company feared that its continued use would hinder the expected transition to the eighth generation of gaming systems. The new engine was supposed to significantly increase the efficiency and speed of developing computer games of various genres.

Forspoken Demo 20230124123522

Final Fantasy XV was the only released Luminous Engine game. The company also released tech demos showing the engine's capabilities, Agni's Philosophy in 2012 and Witch Chapter 0 in 2015. In 2018, Square Enix established an internal studio, Luminous Productions, specifically to develop AAA games on the Luminous Engine.

One of the main priorities in the development of Luminous Studio was multiplatform (cross-platform), as a result of which the engine supports any platform that has programmable shaders.

Luminous Engine

Luminous Studio supports many features for editing and processing game content and assets: visual editing, real-time editing, collaborative parallel editing, automatic assembly and testing of objects, asset management system, task management, and so on.

FORSPOKEN 2023 01 24 19 16 13 788

Graphics engine

The graphics engine used in the PC version of Luminous Studio has native support for Direct3D 11, including tessellation. In addition, many other technologies are supported, including various ones, including diffuse, real-time reflections, refraction and ray distortion. It is stated that the graphics engine will stand out with "strikingly realistic visual fidelity".

FORSPOKEN 2023 01 24 19 36 39 526

Animation engine

The Luminous Studio development team pays great attention to character animation. They believe that animation is one of the most important components of creating photorealistic graphics, and unnatural animation stands out and breaks photorealism. Particular attention is paid to procedural animation, in particular, methods such as inverse kinematics for the whole body, etc.

FORSPOKEN 2023 01 24 19 51 38 406

Luminous Studio will use a combination of pre-recorded motion capture animation along with procedurally generated animation. A special database contains many pre-recorded animations for many movements and actions (for example, walking or swinging a sword). When creating a character animation, the most relevant animation entries are retrieved from the database and adjusted based on the character's current conditions and/or environment. The developers gave several examples, the first one describes the overlay of a procedural approach on the recorded walking animation in the case when the character is walking on an uneven surface. In the following example, the animation engine can change the pre-recorded sword swing animation depending on how heavy it is,

Physics engine

The physics engine included with Luminous Studio supports the simulation of tissues and fluids.

FORSPOKEN 2023 01 24 20 21 39 713

Game AI

Engine developers pay a lot of attention to game artificial intelligence. According to Yoichiro Miyake, lead developer and game AI researcher at Luminous Studio, the previous AI mechanisms are based on reactive loops, while here the developers want to implement a new scalable AI that can recognize game scenes. Miyake gave an example where the level editor communicates with the AI, and the latter can recognize its terrain and structures, intelligently using them when fighting a human player. If these algorithms can be implemented, then such AI will become universal, suitable for games of many genres. According to Miyake, the developers are aiming to create an AI that will be tightly coupled with other subsystems of the engine, and not taken out as a separate independent module. Also an important priority is the creation of scalable AI,

DIFFERENT QUALITY MODES

On the PC version of Forspoken, there is a significant difference when switching between the minimum and maximum graphics settings. When set to minimum settings, the game appears less detailed, textures are lower resolution, and lighting, shadows, and reflections are of lower quality.

Despite this, Forspoken still looks amazing even at the lowest settings, while remaining pleasing and interesting to the eye, making it more accessible to players with less powerful computers.

If you turn on the maximum settings, the graphic design of the game takes off to a new level. Textures get higher resolution, which allows players to notice a lot of detail in the world around them. The effects of lighting, reflections and shadows become more realistic and high quality, adding even more emotional depth to the game.

However, the highest level of detail can be achieved with ray tracing, which makes lighting and reflections extremely realistic, making Forspoken an even more visually and emotionally stunning game.

DLSS/FSR

NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling): DLSS features the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to render an image at a lower resolution and then upscale it to a higher resolution. The result is high image quality with minimal GPU load, allowing you to support higher frame rates. In Jagged Alliance 3, DLSS performs at its best, delivering crisp, detailed images with minimal loss in quality.

AMD FSR (FidelityFX Super Resolution): FSR takes a different approach, which also allows games to be rendered at lower resolutions and then upscaled to higher resolutions. FSR also works well in Jagged Alliance 3, but image quality can be a bit lower than with DLSS, especially at lower settings.
