Discover the Cyclops Concept Arts!
You’ve already seen a speed painting. Now check out the 2 Cyclops concept arts: basic and upgrade version.

<UL TYPE=SQUARE>The Cyclops (http://static2.ubi.com/uk/mm/MMH6_STRONGHOLD_04_Cyclops.jpg) – click to view high res screenshot

Cyclops are the Goblins' opposites. They too were a "failure" in the Orc experiment, but because they were born from the blood of major demons. The demon part of their blood took over, and they became monstrous giants, body and mind twisted by chaotic surges.

Cyclops often measure more than 10 feet tall, and they definitely look more demonic than human. A curious trait they all share is that they have only one eye: a large, pupil-less disc, red and glowing. No one knows for sure the cause of this mutation, but a popular wizard theory claims that it is the "mark of Chaos", a symbol of the Dragon-snake Urgash, coiled in a circle, eating its own tail.

Though they are by nature calm with a child-like simplicity, when they are hurt (physically or emotionally), they develop an explosive and terrifying rage. This makes them dangerous to everyone, their own kind included.
While many factions would love to harness their power, only the Orcs have the strength, patience, and courage to “tame” them and give them a place in their villages as "power workers”, and on the battlefield as heavy shock troops and “siege engines”.


The Enraged Cyclops is the upgraded Cyclops (http://static2.ubi.com/uk/mm/MMH6_STRONGHOLD_04_Enraged_Cyclops.jpg) – click to view high res screenshot[/list]


Chinese New Year screenshot (http://static2.ubi.com/uk/mm/Chinese_New_Year.jpg) - Along with the screenshot of the day, discover this screenshot done last week for Chinese New Year! There is an easter egg hidden in it. Can you find it?


Map editor interface (http://static2.ubi.com/uk/mm/Map-editor-interface.jpg) - You may have already seen this image: a screenshot from the map editor you’ll get at game release.

Enjoy! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif

Please, oh PLEASE tell me the game has Anti-Aliasing support. The screenshots look great, but they would look GORGEOUS if it weren't for the jaggies.

Settlers 7 suffers from this problem - it would be a great looking game if it was possible to enable AA, like in Anno 1404.

QFT.

There is no reason to not have AA in game. It has been a PC standard to a very very long time. This game is also only on PC so there is no excuse for not having it.

I'm running heroes 5 with 32CSAA + 8TRSSAA. But it runs perfect because I can set it to enhance, if there is no AA option in game, I have to set it to override and the performance hit is much worse because the game doesn't know how to apply it and the performance hit is 10x that of in game AA for the same visuals ( well less considering I'd have to use less AA because of the performance loss )

Not to nag or anything, but there have been two other screenshots of the day released besides the Cyclops pics.

Um, not to nitpick or anything, but...

One cyclops, 2 cyclopes.

Cyclops is singular. There is nothing called just "cyclop"

It's like how biceps is singular and bicepses is the plural. Bicep by itself is not a word.

...I hope this will be corrected before the final release, as little things like that can really ruin a game for me =(

Wow, that speaks volumes.

That just goes to show how little they care about their own official forums that they can't even be bothered to pass that along to you.

I can see it now, this place will become like it did for Heroes 5 where they just stopped updating it at 3 factions and never added anymore.

Point taken >_> Though, I doubt it would be as much of a problem if a) I wasn't lazy and kept my sig updated or b) there was actually something (like a line) that kept the sig and text seperate. It's confused me on many an occasion as well, but eventually I figure it out.

But yeah, let's update that sig...

That won’t happen, there were some early teething problems with the communication of updates but this wasn’t because Xhane wasn’t sending them, more I wasn’t getting them via the methods in place. I think that’s been sorted now though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

This is because he has just attacked the Maniac in front of him by swinging his right arm, and the momentum of this attack has turned his torso to the left.

I don't like one thing on the Chinese_New_Year.jpg screenshot:

There's the enemy troop in the bottom middle of it and it seems like you can snitch everything just by walking the beast around. I know I'm wrong but the surroundings must be made more pronounced that they cannot be penetrated without facing this army.
