FiringSquad has conjured up a two-page interview with Iron Lore's Michael Verrette, quizzing the producer about their upcoming Titan Quest: Immortal Throne expansion pack.
Q: Will the game get any graphical upgrades for Immortal Throne?
A: The graphics engine is the same as it was in the original Titan Quest with the exception of some optimization and minor features, but we have raised the bar with respect to the look and feel of the levels. The level designers focused on taking advantage of vertical space in Immortal Throne so the new gameplay spaces feature more vistas and more areas where the player will be using elevated gameplay spaces. We have added a lot of environmental effects and particle effects to some of the new levels to establish the mood of Hades, which makes the Immortal Throne content quite different than the original Titan Quest levels.
