Is that good or bad?
Well, would it be truly procedural, we would be talking about a few Megabytes of data and lots of CPU time to create assets....

But it is just so much procedural, that it still looks "pleasant."

"Every atom procedural", they say.
And yet, it's a 1.6 GIGAbyte update for a 10 GIGAbyte game.
Procedural. Gigabytes.
Sigh...
There are a couple of things to this. First, "every atom procedural" is obviously just marketing speech.
But a lot of the games space is actually taken up by sound. And the fact that it's a 1.6 GB patch doesn't necessarily mean that the game gets larger by that much. Depending on packaging, they just need to replace certain things... I've heard on Xbox the new update was basically the entire game.

The new updte does look just like what the doctor ordered though, looking forward to it very much. Unfortunately what the doctor ordered for me is rest for the right hand until the end of the week... :(

By the way, trailer is here:
