Sierra shows off World in Conflict DX10 graphics
If you have a DirectX 10-capable graphics card and haven't enrolled in the World of Conflict July beta
yet—or if you just like eye candy—Sierra and Massive Entertainment have released a video showing off the DX10-exclusive effects in the upcoming title. A high-definition version of the video is available for download over on FileShack
, and a low-definition streaming version can also be viewed on this page over at Shacknews
The video provides a sneak peak at the real-time strategy game's DX10 graphical effects, including soft particles and particle physics that give smoke volume and allow it to react with the environment, as well as global cloud shadows and volumetric sunlight beams. In the video, Massive and Sierra also show off the game engine's deformable terrain, which affects not only graphics but also gameplay.
