A day on from our first look at Spider-Man running on a PlayStation 5-like setup, EA has debuted some next-gen tech of its own. It’s all about hair.
EA has devoted a small team of people at its DICE and Criterion studios to improving the look of follicles in the Frostbite engine. Genuinely, the results are impressive.
It’s not just the physics side of how hair moves, either – it’s how each hair reflects the light differently as it does so, and how this is affected when hair has been artificially coloured.
