Tencent showcased SYN, a technical demonstration for a “globally marketed PC and console open-world first-person shooter game,” during its annual Tencent Games press conference.
Here is an overview of the technical demo, via the video:
Welcome to Tencent Games’ Lightspeed and Quantum Studios’ SYN, a tech demo for a globally marketed PC and console open-world first-person shooter game. Everything you see in this demo is not final. We tried to push forward state-of-the-art, real-time graphics in a cyberpunk-style world with an intriguing universe and striking visuals.
Our characters are realistic, yet stylish, with various customization features including cosmetics, skins, and extremely realistic effects achieved with our strand-based hair system through cooperation with Epic Games.
Players can choose to play as one of the three factions along with their very own cybernetic pet, each with their own unique customizable looks and traits.
Our immersive character and vehicle selection and customization process takes place within our open-world universe, so characters can interact with their environment even while being modified in real-time by users.
Watch the technical demonstration below.
