It's been some time since we last saw the first screenshots of PCM10. In a new press release, Cyanide say that they've now improved the new graphic engine even more, mentioning the stages' realism level, high resolution textures, more diverse and realistic environment - and a lot more details:
"Many improvements reinforce the race stages' realism. The game features very high resolution textures and a new handling of the flora which is now luxuriant, more diverse and environmentally accurate to where the race is taking place. The lighting ambiance of each one of the hundreds of stages has been reworked according to various weather conditions in order to offer more believable and vivid sets. Finally, many advanced visual effects complete the ultimate rendering of the game: the "bloom" effect simulates image exposure to light, more depth of field enhances the focus of the TV cameras that follow cyclists during each race, while "motion blur" simulates speed."
And now for the fun part: Watch the trailer here!
