So I came -no pun- across this at GAF...
“This is an action game in which players assume the role of Marius Titus, a Roman soldier who seeks revenge for the slaying of his family. Players use swords and spears to kill barbarian hoards in frenetic melee-style combat. Battles are highlighted by slow-motion and blood-splatter effects; enemies are frequently impaled, decapitated, and dismembered. Some environments depict bloody limbs and dismembered corpses on spikes. Cutscenes also depict intense acts of violence: caged soldiers burned alive; a character repeatedly stabbed with a knife. During the course of the game, female characters are sometimes depicted topless (e.g., pasties over breasts; covered in body paint). One brief sequence depicts a dancer bending down in front of a man (fellatio is implied)—there is no depiction of the sex act. The word “f**k” can be heard in the game.”
Realism, skin shaders and that full body animation.......Pervs! Formation!
Can't see why this hasn't been demoed yet. What's up with that Crytek? We've seen enough manly men in tunics and chopped off arms. Why you holding back the goods? I wanna see the next-gen ass and boobs with so much jiggle it will make the Butt Jiggle forum posters blush.
It really does make one wonder if that part was completely, full body motion captured as well....Hey, it's all in the name of realism and historical accuracy. Romans were some raw freaks if Rome is anything to go off of.
