Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is in the closed beta stages right now and it’s no surprise the game looks and feels amazing if you’ve been following it for a while. While it may be the first-time players are getting the chance to look at the game, it’s not the first time we’ve seen the game. That was back at E3 in 2015 in which some of the exact locations are able to be seen for the first time. So how much has changed since then? YouTuber Cycu1 did a nice little comparison video to showcase the footage from a few years back to present day.
For the comparison, it is important to bear in mind that the footage from E3 2015 is from an early-alpha build and currently the game is in the closed-beta phase, which in a comparison standpoint may not seem like much (since the development steps range from early-alpha, alpha, early phases of beta and full beta all the way until launch) but the development times vary and are not held to a certain time for each subsection of labelling. The Pre-Alpha/Early-Alpha footage may not has as much of the ability to showcase enough dynamic lighting, weather and much more.
While the entire frames are tough to recreate exactly because of the dynamic effects, the comparison is quite close and does justice for a good bit of what was then and what is now. Let us know your thoughts on what is the better version or which you think looks better? Do you think it’s a no-brainer? Drop it in the comments below!
