I think this picture is a very well promotion material.
We can see the "Snow" map has been improved and become less "Cartoonish".
Thanks for reading.
Hmm these photos look like they have been graded a bit.
That said the 3rd Fog of War video does back the map looking less cartoony:
Its hard to say though exactly what its looking like from any thing other than raw gameplay footage,
I think they may have not done themselves a favor by using the iceworld map in the showcase videos not even because its not likeable. But its a lot more vibrant and colorful. Not "grimdark" enough for some if you know what i mean. *sigh
This looks absolutely stunning as visuals goes. But I am wondering why they always tend to use Icy planets most of the time. I know DoW2 was in a major part on a Desert, but still, my own preference is that they introduce a Desert landscape as I really enjoy playing on it. Also on a desert map they can introduce various new options that you need to keep in mind like Sand abominations of some sort that pop up on a certain points on the map and you need to keep in mind while advancing and so on.
i zoomed every picture to look it more closely,units have scratches,textures more realistic,terain can be more improved to be even less cartoony or no cartoony.
The images are outstanding, but I do wonder, with which monster their rendered those?
