Forget what you think you know of Gloria Victis’ looks, as the devs announced that they’ve switched up the game engine to Unity 5. This will improve not only the visuals (including the new trees as featured in the picture above) but client performance as well.
“What does it mean for you?” the team posted. “FPS growth, better movement fluency, performance improvement, and reduced hardware requirements while improving graphics quality.”
Other benefits of Unity 5 include better AI and collision checking. The upgrade is requiring the team to rework many systems, although it still has plans for the creation of a continent and a sailing system.[Source: Dev blog. Thanks to Kinya for the tip!]
