Star Wars Battlefront graphics mod changes game to look like a movie
The modder Martin Bergman is currently preparing its Toddyhancer mod for Star Wars Battlefont, so as to offer a very high quality rendering for the PC version of the game. The first pictures unveiled clearly leaves a movie like glimpse.
Available for a few days on PC and gaming consoles, Star Wars Battlefront had met a great success, ahead of the release of Star Wars VII: The Force Wake movie in theaters. If the game from DICE studio provides a graphics rendering quality due to its graphics engine Frostbite, a modder is looking to push the game even further with the visual.
Having worked on a photorealistic mod on the PC version of GTA 5, Martin Bergman is working on a new version of Toddyhancer (Build 2), which is the name of the mod for Star Wars Battlefront.
Until the developer proposes to download his efforts to the general public, he has posted some screenshots that show a visual rendering of excellent craftsmanship, both in terms of improved textures and in terms of light management.
Bergman stressed, however, that photorealistic rendering has a price: the game only runs between 30 and 40 fps, saying it is necessary to have a competitive PC to enjoy it without sacrificing the comfort of game.
