Join us at www.ageofascent.com for a 30 min playtest Saturday, 4th of Apr, 2015 at 3pm Central US, 4pm East US, 8pm UTC/GMT, 9pm UK (Desktop browser, mouse and keyboard)
Please note time change for UK players due to daylight savings changes.
- Free-for-All (FFA) – All ships are hostile
- New Ship lighting/shading (as shown in below video in split screen) with:
- Environmental ambient lighting
- Directional lighting
- Specular highlights
- Bump mapping
- Rim Lighting
The video below has a split screen with the current lighting on the right, and the new lighting on the left.
The difference is quite noticable, though it does look better on screen than in the video!
Hope you have fun!
