A video game with a photorealistic body camera has been criticized for being too realistic

Non-record – an upcoming “photorealistic” video game is dividing opinion because it may be too realistic.

The game is an upcoming single-player first-person shooter that puts the player in the role of a tactical police officer, seemingly played entirely from the perspective of the officer’s body camera.

The original premise used by the community when releasing new footage from No record caused disbelief, with many commenting that it was actual body cam footage with gameplay elements such as HUDs and dialogue options placed right on top.

It turns out that it is real, but not real life. The game is simple looks like that’s real. No record the visual style is hard to distinguish from real-life footage, thanks to its development in Unreal Engine 5 and the stunning graphical capabilities now available to developers.

Now the comments are focused on whether the game is too close to the traumatic real-life experiences and looks too real in its depiction to launch.

At a time when – often distressingly – police body cam footage is essentially its own genre of video content on social media, many feel it’s in bad taste to release a hyper-realistic shooter that depicts fairly accurate violence far, far away. from almost The Avengers– as an airstrike Call of Duty.

While others just think it will be a super cool and exciting shooter.

A flashpoint of discussion raged around a tweet from No record the creator Alexander Spindler depicting the game in action.

Streamer Trainwreck summed up the realism debate by suggesting that it makes him uncomfortable – and such realism should be very moderate in shooters.

Along with the hyperrealism debate, doubts about the existence of the game as a game flourished:

A statement on the game’s official Twitter page addressed the concerns after the video was revealed, stating that “As a French studio that addresses a global audience, the game does not engage in foreign policy and is not inspired by real events. It clearly avoids objectionable themes such as discrimination, racism, violence against women and minorities. The game will not have a biased or Manichean attitude towards criminal activity and police violence. We also respect and understand people who may be disturbed by the game’s imagery. Art cannot fight against interpretation…”

How to No record is nearing a release date that will be pinpointed at an undisclosed location in the future, it’s likely to spark more debate about A) whether it lives up to initial footage from a hyper-realistic and immersive police shooter, or B) how far that realism goes. the “taste” debate.
