Thanks to ‘Final Fantasy’ developer Square Enix, we now have our first look at what we can expect from early next gen console graphics. In a demonstration labeled “Back Stage,” produced by Luminous Productions, we get a look at the clarity and depth next gen consoles like the Play Station 5 will be capable of.
The demo was meant to show off a new technique called “Ray Tracing.” Which is meant to re-create natural lighting more accurately.
“It essentially simulates the path of light traveling from a light source in a game, like a light bulb, fire, or the sun, more accurately than conventional video game lighting. The result is more realistic lighting, reflections, and shadows in a video game.” –Antonio Villas-Boas
Take a look at the demo below. Tell us what you think in the comments. Are you excited for next gen consoles?

Check out the latest in the Batman game series ‘Gotham Knights’
- Batgirl, also known as Barbara Gordon, is a determined fighter and a skilled hacker. As the daughter of deceased Gotham commissioner, Jim Gordon, she had helped Batman as Oracle in the past. Now, after years of recovery and preparation, she is ready to step into her new role, wielding her melee tonfa, and harnessing her training in kickboxing, capoeira and jiu-jitsu.
- Nightwing is Dick Grayson, the first Robin, who was Batman’s protégé before becoming a hero in his own right. He’s a natural leader and the eldest and wisest member of the Batman Family. Nightwing’s mastery in acrobatics is complemented by his expertise use of his signature dual Escrima Sticks, making him proficient at taking out enemies.
- Red Hood, formerly known as Jason Todd, is an intense and volatile anti-hero, which stems from his death and forced resurrection by one of Batman’s most dangerous foes. Red Hood has trouble keeping his temper in check but will not hesitate to step into the line of fire when a friend is threatened. His training has given him peak human strength and proficiency in multiple combat techniques with all manner of weapons – both traditional and high-tech.
- Robin is Tim Drake, the young prodigy and genius of the team, who is a master of deductive reasoning.

An expert fighter armed with his collapsible quarterstaff and skilled in a variety of stealth techniques, Robin also possesses a background in combined psychological warfare and behavioral sciences.
Marvel’s Avengers | Cash Grab Or Extraordinary Game?
Stan Lee created an empire unseen in memory altogether. The Marvel universe has gone beyond comics, and sure DC Comics can also claim fame in this aspect as well, but not in the way that Marvel has.
The Avengers are not just a popular comic series, or nowadays a popular movie franchise, but it has become a way of life. Picking a favorite avenger, or opinion on the film’s franchise defines relationships and friendships, and could possibly break them. That is the level of popularity this company has established.
In terms of gaming this hasn’t been the case. As the Marvel franchise has stuffed it’s pockets in recent years, the gaming industry has felt a heavier effect from DC with the Arkham Batman video game series. That was until Marvel’s Spider-Man debuted on the Sony PS4 in 2018.
The game was an incredible example of how Marvel could easily slide into the role of being a game changer within the gaming industry. A lot of the crowd that are fans of the Marvel movie franchise are also huge gamer’s, so it was very surprising it took this long for Marvel to capitalize on this. There have been Marvel games in the past, but usually they are cash grab movie tie-ins that can easily be beat in four to six hours with little enjoyment.
So that leaves the question we all want answered, how great of a game can the new Marvel Avengers be? I have tried the beta for the game, honestly I did not come away completely impressed. Although, it did have some inspiring moments. But after all, it is just a beta, so I wont judge based off of this information. With that being said this game really does make one wonder what are we in for? Is this truly the ride we have all been waiting for as long time fans?
We can not truly know until we have our physical copy on hand (digital as well if that’s your gig) but the excitement seems to be rather reserved. This could be more or less because of how COVID-19 has sucked the life out of human society as we know it, or it could just be that we are not expecting much from Marvel.
With Spider-Man, we had gotten so many trailers and game images and hype that it was almost expected it was going to be a triple AAA hit. This can not be said for the Avengers game. Trailers and game play footage has been minimal. Square Enix who is publishing the game is a big-time player in the gaming industry, even much larger than Insomniac who published Spider-Man. So why is this? The virus can not be the reason, if anything being forced to be at home should be ever more the reason for this hype train to take off.
We are all wondering if this is a cash grab or a truly great game, and to be honest we have no idea what we are getting, but like many around the world who are so starved to play a Marvel game or get back into the Marvel universe, we can not wait to go on this adventure, hopefully the price of admission is worth the ride.
