That's cut-scene footage for the quest "Comrades in Arms" on Sith-side Balmorra. Your argument would be more sound if you post game--not cut-scene--footage.

Otherwise, I'm in the same "this is crap" boat as everyone else.

What where you thinking Bioware ?!

Give us back High resolution texture, BETA was great, this is false advertising.

It only take a couple of minutes of your time to post a complaint to The Federal Trade Commission.

Wow, well this is unfortunate. Armor looks like absolute crap outside of cutscenes. WoW has better armor textures and that game is seven years old. Sad. I love this game, but there really is no excuse. I guess this is what Bioware gets for cutting corners and not writing in a custom engine as part of their massive budget.

A bit disappointing. But, who honestly plays an MMO for the graphics? The game looks fine (I play at 1080p, on a 42" display). I'm happy enough with the graphics, to be able to enjoy the rest of the game immensely.

Not to say that I wouldn't like to see high-res textures. It would certainly add to the game. But for me, the 2D sprite foliage takes away a lot more immersion than the textures do.

You can keep remaking this thread but it'll not vanish till the developers step up and enable high res. textures, end of story.

Can someone please tell me I'm reading all of this wrong? That these are lies? Please? Because I'm going to be really upset if I find out that this game could look better on my pricy PC and it doesn't, because BW decided to take out the high resolution setting.

Seriously showing gameplay footage on a setting that's unavailable? I understand playing gameplay videos on super PCs, even that's cool. But let us aspire to have that build, not show us something impossible - weak!

And to the people who are putting "Those who actually play this game and enjoy it are in game, not on these forums complaining", silence mortal. I love this game and play it daily; I also happen to have a job, fortunately for me like many other players, it allows me to check on forums while I'm at work. You know... keeping up with the Calrissian's, all that jazz. So my concern is valid, and I'll be sure my massive guild hears about this when I sign on tonight.
