Post Improved Saber Blur

Looking at the old screenshots again, after having seen those gorgeous new ones, I noticed the improved saber motion blur. Behold!

Yes....it looks a lot more realistic. Actually lots of things have been improved. Look at the added detail on the stormtroopers

Yeah, the saber blur in these new shots is top-notch (as we say in Blighty).

Hey, i have total fait in Raven, i just didnt have faith in the motion blurs at the time. I know this will be a great game, and better than we are all expecting because it is being made by Raven. They have never let me down before

Only bad things I noticed is that sceenshot 2 needs some FSAA, and it looked like there was a chunk missing from Kyle's left side in screen 2.

If Raven can take Elite force and make the first ever GOOD Star Trek game and people actually bought it (my trekkie self included) then just imagine what they are gonna do with the best StarWars game ever.... nuff said

I totally agree. I was so impressed with Elite Force....probably the only good Star Trek game. It wasnt just a straight forward shooting everyone, but you also had to think, which sometimes made things easier. Raven are very good at making fun games and if you liked JK....then you'll be in heaven with JK2

I like the saber blur but I hope it later becomes more transparent, though that might not matter in real gameplay.

You hope it becomes transparent again? Why on earth? It looks so much more intense. I think you need to look again man.

i agree a bit more transparent but not too much would be much more realistic and betta.
/edit\ the transparency without the skipping look or the thicker triangles ,so basically a bit more transparent but smooth.the transness makes iot look more graphically intense instead of old lookin thick blur.

Yes SW: Knights of the Old Republic is being developed by Bioware and, some said at E3, is even more impressive then SW:Galaxies.
But i'll hold judgement on that untill i see some screenshots.
