Trailer looked pretty janky, to be honest. Did they borrow Gamebryo? That guy's facial animation looked about as good as Fallout 3. Gameplay elements don't look particularly smooth or interesting.

This. I know it's still a good bit away but I am quite frankly shocked at how dated it looks. It really does look like something made over a decade ago. Even longer.

Hopefully, it will have great RPG elements along with an intriguing story....but from an engine point of view? Jesus Christ it looks shoddy as hell. Look at 1:30 into that trailer. Those character running and movement animations look no better than what we saw in Fallout 3 or new vegas. Surely we've moved past this?

I think it looks great as a game, though the engine does look a bit clunky - sort of like Fallout 4 actually, which was dated at the time it released a few years ago.

Less than optimal results from Unreal Engine 4, some of the close ups of characters speaking looked exactly like Fallout3/Fallout 4.

Then again, I don't think they're working with a huge budget so I'm OK with all of that once the gameplay and story is good.

Thought the same myself. but no they are using the Unreal engine 4. So why they decided to make it look exactly like something unsing the gamebryo is beyond me. Even so far as the conversation talking head is the same.

I can't see this being the result of a decision made, the trailer is just showing some really poor animation and texture work.

It's hard to tell whether the footage itself was just put together at the last minute or they have a hell of a lot of work to get done before the October release. I mean they're showing animations that, at best, look like they've been authored to be viewed from a first person perspective, in third person. The facial skinning is in such a state that it should never have been focused on in the trailer and while the run cycle Kirby pointed out is brutal, look to the left of what he's running towards, that's either an textured character or they have a severe LOD or texture streaming issue on their hands.

It's just...bizarre :/

Why do I get the feeling this will be really buggy on release like KOTOR 2 & Alpha Protocol were

The day Modern Warfare comes out, so I won't be getting it at launch. I reckon that will also affect sales somewhat, having played the beta of MW it's going to be good and will bring back a lot of previous players.

But I will definitely pick it up at some stage, and hopefully by that stage all the bugs will be ironed out.

I am indeed, but not sure if i am going to get it on console or PC. Console will have better FPS but nice to sit on the couch and play on a big screen tv.

I briefly played black ops 3 and black ops 4 as they were free and hated both but the new modern warfare does look class. Think i might even but it on launch, first time I've ever done that with a cod.
