Ghost Games’ Need for Speed engine produces images that are so close to real-life, they’re hard to differentiate.

The upcoming Need for Speed’s showings looked so realistic both in the reveal trailer and it’s gameplay demo. If it looks this good while being rendered real-time, this will be the best looking NFS game to date.

Developer, Ghost Games, did not release an in-game screenshot today. However, they did render a scene in-engine and put it side-by-side with a real-life photo to show off how good the game looks.

“Our aim with this process was to make use of the Physically Based Rendering (PBR) capabilities of our Frostbite engine to create accurate real-world materials, surfaces and lighting to reach a life-like visual image,” says Bryn Alban, the game’s vehicle art director.
