The footage, which you can see below (via user Ultimadrago on Resetera), comes from a Subusu News video and gives us an idea of some of the tech behind the action-adventure game. Though it’s a Korean language clip, handily there are English subtitles to walk us through the outlet’s behind-the-scenes look at Pearl Abyss’ development on DokeV. The clip highlights the high level of detail of the game’s models and textures, and shows us some of the real-world object-scanning tech that helped the devs bring these into the game.
Pearl Abyss, the developer of Black Desert Online and Crimson Desert, is working on DokeV, a Pokémon-style creature-collecting open-world game. The upcoming game was given a new lease on life at this year’s Gamescom, when it drew a lot of attention because to its stunning landscapes, action-packed gameplay, and vivid visual design. We now have another look at DokeV thanks to a South Korean media footage.
The studio has a room specifically dedicated to scanning 3D objects into its games, with an ornate incense burner being an example that we see folded into DokeV as a background prop. This is tech used across plenty of games, of course, but it does offer us a useful insight into how the studio’s going about incorporating high levels of detail into DokeV’s world.
It’s a decent chunk of footage to check out, with the clip running to around ten minutes long, so worth seeing if you’re excited to know more about the game (and do pop those English subs on if you’d like full context)
Elsewhere, we get a look at the motion capture technology Pearl Abyss is drawing on to bring the characters’ movements to life – so, expect to see folks in dark mocap suits gliding around a big room on skateboards, bicycles, and the like. Plus, there are other sections giving us a flavour of how the game’s world is being crafted, which offers a fresh look at its open world in action. Take a look below:
There’s no DokeV release date to jot down just yet, but you can find out a bit more about the game on its site (and there’s always the Gamescom trailer above, too. If you’re looking for more games like Pokémon to try out in the meantime, you know where to click.
