If it has any dx10 features..i failed to see them. The game looks lame by todays benchmarks. During the developer walkthrough of mounts, the game was fading out objects only a few yards away from the player. Also they made the mistake of changing the day/night in realtime, revealing that the sky is pre-rendered, not not a real time cloud in sight. Also terrain in the distance had lots of jagged edges and lack fo detail, and I noticed things like the main characters cape was stuck curved, so it may not have any realtime animation to it at all.

It's an mmo, meaning somewhat different standards compared to other games. Mmo's has to handle massive amount of players on screen doing different stuff possibly each in its own model/textures (Age of Conan has highly customizable character creation).

I can't wait for AoC either. I've been following it for quite a while now. Many of my former EQ2 guild are currently playing WoW, but they are leaving for AoC when it arrives so I will be joining them again...

IMHO aoc is one of the best looking MMORPG to date... looks like oblivion but online . THe water looks amazing ., many of their enviroments too.. THe ability to combat while riding horses or beast its awesome for an online game.For nothing won the title of best mmorpg at E3 , There are places that could be tweaked but over all it looks like a winner.. in graphics and gameplay. I really hope that AOC destroy all others online rpgs that still use so yesterday tech and force mmorpgs developers to take notice that people doesnt upgrade their computers for nothing and that there are so many people that really cares about next generation graphics in their game ,not just gameplay ,and make games that truly shines in the latest Dx10 cards.

CAnt wait..
