The level of detail and the amount of… everything… in this is absurd.
About 50% of the NPCs seem to have an actual job that they appear to be doing properly. I stood and watched the ‘logging’ area next to the river by Barrenlight for about a minute last night, and let me tell you if I ever need a tree trunk cut in half, I’ll be giving those guys a call. They’re a credit to their profession. Same with the workers at the quarry, and the woman chopping vegetables in the Inn. It’s totally inconsequential to the rest of the game, but it was all animated perfectly.
And judging by the screenshot above it even has accurately rendered seagull nostrils.
(Which does make it seem odd that the trees still look a bit ‘early PS4 era’, but I’m guessing that’s the skeleton of the crossgen version peeking through)
