What is PBR?


Hello member:  Welcome to the first edition of the AlterVerse Newsletter.  As we are approaching the release date of our first game, Disruption, we will be sending an occasional newsletter to help keep everyone informed of the happenings in the AlterVerse and updates on the progress of the game.  We promise we won't fill up your inbox!


We have upgraded the game to use Deferred Shading and improved Direct X support from Dx9 to Dx11.  This change greatly enhances the look and performance of the game.  More importantly, it provides us the foundation that will allow us to take full advantage of the latest in Virtual Reality and gaming technologies now and into the future.

No matter how well I try to explain how cool this is, you just would not really truly understand the improved level of realism this upgrade gives us!
So here's a link to a short video with an explantion and best of all, some actual footage of these technologies in action!

Also, the Devs are currently adding facial animations to the Player avatars!  No more dull mannequin look!  I'll post an avatar update on the forums soon with some screenshots once they are all complete.
