YouTube’s member ‘Cartelstrims369’ has created an amazing comparison between the Demarco side-mission of the E3 2012 build and the final build. This video shows some additional features that have been removed from the final version of the game. The E3 2012 build featured smoke effects comparable to Nvidia’s PhysX GPU-accelerated smoke effects that were present in Batman: Arkham series. Well, this gorgeous effect has been completely removed. Not only that, but the interior of Demarco’s club lacks shadows, as well as mist and and smoke effects. It’s also obvious from this comparison that the lighting system has been downgraded as everything feels so ‘unnatural’ compared to the E3 2012 build. Moreover, the bloom effects during slow-motion have been removed. Enjoy!
