|Some quick E3 impressions of Vanguard are online at Gamer's Hell:|
Jeff first showcased the high elf village where the new players who choose this race will begin. The sheer amount of detail that was on display was a visual feast. The vegetation looked great and there was an abundance of it, the buildings were not few and far between, but here’s the clincher: Every building you see you can go into. None of the doors are just props that lead to nothing. You can go into every room as they are all individually modeled. This was apparent in the second city that we were treated to – 250 buildings with narrow, medieval streets that look like they came straight out of a movie, and are the exact replica of those streets you imagine in your mind when you’re visualizing a medieval town that you’re reading in a fantasy novel. Narrow, cluttered, dirty and busy all spring to mind to describe the scene.
