Summoner Screen Shots
10:45 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Volition has released a number of new screen shots for their upcoming 3D RPG game Summoner to various sites. While many of these sites mention the PlayStation 2 version of the game, rest assured, Mac users will get to play this RPG as well later this year. In Summoner, you play a young man named Joseph who is just starting to control his demon-summoning powers. He meets up with three other comrades, and they set out on an adventure with a deep story and impressive graphics.
PS2.IGN has three new screen shots of the game in action, and they have updated their preview with a few impressions from a recent unveiling of the game. Here's a clip:
Summoner's graphics are still quite striking when you first have a look at the game, as we did today. The current revision is very incomplete, and it's still awaiting substantial improvements in the draw distance, and character animation, but the effects, models, and especially the textures are amazing. We had a look at three different environments: a small city, a hilly grassland, and an underground sewer maze. In every one, walls, floors, trees, rooves, green fields and waterfalls of sewage are all covered in sharp, smooth, detailed artwork.Read on for more on how Summoner in progressing right now. Also be sure to check out the new screen shots from the game, as they're looking superb.
If those new images aren't enough for you, several other sites have also posted some new Summoner eye candy. Computer and Video Game News has five new shots, and Summoner Watch has four more images. All are well worth a look.
