New Image Shows Comparison Between Source Engine 1.0 vs 2.0

It was no secret that Valve was developing Source Engine 2.0. It was also confirmed that they are remaking the maps of Left 4 Dead 2 in Source Engine 2.0, as a way to test the potential of the new engine. Now a new image has appeared online that shows the comparison between the old Left 4 Dead Plantation map vs the remade map in Source Engine 2.0.

You can check out this comparison in the image below.


The improvements are immediately noticeable to the lighting, textures and shadows. While we won’t really call this an apples to apples comparison, it does a good enough job of illustrating the graphical jump between Source Engine 1.0 to Source Engine 2.0.

In case you are interested in reading more about these Source Engine 2.0 leak, you can read the story that we covered yesterday. Apparently, the slides which were leaked date back to 2011 and are completely legit, although Valve has yet to comment on any of these leaks.

We would be interested to know what you have to say about this image? Share with us your thoughts in the comments below.
