Looks as if Crytek may have some competition on the horizon.

Square Enix has detailed their new “Luminous” technology and has been kind enough to bestow some video and screens upon the world as well.

They’re going for maximum DX 11 realism and are pulling out all the stops to create lifelike environments.  So far all we’ve seen are urban environments, but they do look quite “real” thus far.

Check out these comparison screens and video below:

Looking good… so far.  Only time will tell what Square uses this engine for, but I’d like to throw out a Deus Ex 1 remake as a suggestion ^__^

Stay tuned to RipTen for continued coverage of Square Enix and their “Luminous” possibilities.
