God of War III is undeniably a visually cracking game on the PlayStation 3. But ever wonder why Little Big Planet 2 looked so good in the trailer? That’s because the team behind Media Molecule is sharing the tech behind God of War 3.
“A rebuilt graphics engine means that LBP2 looks even better than its forebear – sharper, cleaner, and with a greater sense of physicality,” says an article from EDGE.
“A share of tech with the God of War III team means it’s borrowed its depth-of-field effects. Objects are better defined with surrounding shadow, a result of ambient occlusion.”
“Transparency effects for clouds and feathers and better lighting, with shadows, god rays, volumetric fog and objects, like burning wood, casting lights – all of these features will also be applied to existing LBP content.”
This not the first instance where game developers have shared tech between them. Stay tuned with GB as we impatiently approach the winter release of Little Big Planet 2.
