This new Star Citizen trailer dropped yesterday and we didn't think much of it. Beyond the amazing graphics and tongue-in-cheek luxury car commercial spoof it looked like just another cool ship that we'll get someday is the long-awaited, publicly funded game.
Today however, creator Chris Roberts, of Wing Commander fame, told Eurogamer that the trailer is made "100 percent in-engine." The trailer represents actual, brain-melting, gameplay.
"We're pushing the limits with Star Citizen, and this commercial is our best example yet," Roberts said.
"It's rendered 100 per cent in-engine in real-time at 4K resolution. We scale everything for the super high resolutions that will be the basis of tomorrow's gaming experience."
Roberts said they are employing a graphics technology which, in simple terms means being able to take a high definition game from 1080p to the "ultra-HD" of 3840x2160 with frame rates going far above 60 frames per second.
Tech jargon aside it's crazy hi-res.
