View Full Version : Shadows

i was just wondering if in DX2 that the player character will cast shadows...i mean i know that everything in the game casts real time shadows (which look amazing from what ive seen), but i was wondering if the player casts shadows as to bring more realism to stealth, (make sure you dont cast huge shadows etc.)

Sorry. See this page:

Although the player doesn’t cast a shadow, everything else does.

oh well, that would've been cool, although probly would have added to the requirements....maybe it could be implemented in a mod or something...

That info must be pretty old, I think the player does cast shadows.

yes every living and non living thing thing will have a shadow cast around them depending on where the light is.

you will all see what im talking about when you play the game.;)

- There's no player shadow. Not sure what the previewer thought was his shadow, but it wasn't.
