Don't Be Afraid of This Video Game's Realistic Darkness

I didn't go to E3 this year. If I had, I'd have run straight to Bohemia Interactive and sat down with military sim ArmA 3 (this vid was part of the game's E3 presentation). Why? Because I'm a fan of things that go bump in the night. Or, at least, the way things look when they go bump in the night.

The lighting effects on show in this clip are insane. Even more so when you consider this is a game that takes place on an enormous sandbox island.


Now consider this: this game is the sequel to ArmA II. The game zombie mod DayZ is based on. If/when DayZ makes the jump to ArmA 3, this is the kind of darkness you'll be facing while crapping your pants in the middle of nowhere.
