    Exactly, low effort because they are still selling their games purely based on nostalgia. "Buy elex because Gothic". These fuckers are lazy and inept and they should be punished by consumers.

    What's with all that graphic whorism these days? Kingdom Come: Deliverance and Cyberpunk 2077 really spoiled you guys.

    Go play some Deus Ex from 2000 and repent!

    Its not necessarily about graphics, but animations, movement, traversal, combat itself, dialogue, character design... in the case of Elex 2, it's all mediocre or outright bad from the videos we have seen. With the work coming out of very small independent studios, like Kena bridge of spirits has shown recently, there is no excuse for this shit PB is showing us except for ineptitude.

    Deliverance and Cyberjunk are both horrible in terms of graphics.
    By the way graphics aren't just the still screenshots but the actual game animation.
    When I watched the monsters gliding on the surface I was done.
    This isn't acceptable in this day, make a proper game or stop trying to sell it.
    Any goodwill they had gathered, they squandered it.

    Ok, if KCD and C2077 are terrible in this regard, which RPGs have truly good graphics?

    nooooooo how dare they recycle perfectly fine assets between all their games instead of wasting time, effort and money on making new ones from scratch each time like all the other cool kids do

    I would be fine with Gothic 2 graphics + tree mod from morrowind, provided game had Gothic 2 world and questing.

    Not rpg, but gothic isn't an rpg so Witcher 3 has great graphics. Dying Light has great graphics. Both games are older than Elex 2.
    And team size is not an excuse, Cyberjunk was developed by lots of people and it's still trash after many patches.

    Graphics evolution should’ve stagnated at Half Life 2.

    Oh, and Elex 2 will be just fine.
