That first screenshot almost looks more like a poorly-lit real life picture than a game, lol.
Yeah. And the lighting of the bottom of the bigger pictures looks interesting. Makes me wonder how it looks in proper gameplay footage.
But seeing sunlight at all is new, because in the original game it was always dark.
The upper plate blocks out the sun for the slums that live beneath it, so those places never got to see sunlight at all. And for the ones living on the upper plate, it was unclear if there was any sunlight there either (possible due to pollution) because whenever we saw Midgar in the game, it always looked like night time.
