Welcome to Tencent Games ‘Lightspeed and Quantum Studios’ SYN, a technical demonstration for an open-world first-person shooter game for PC and console marketed worldwide. Everything you see in this demo is not final. We try to drive next-generation graphics in real time in a cyberpunk-style world with an intriguing universe and amazing visual effects.

Our characters are realistic, yet elegant, with various customization features including extremely realistic cosmetics, masks, and effects accomplished with our strand-based hair system through cooperation with Epic Games.

Players can choose to play as one of the three factions along with their own cyber pet, each with their own unique traits and customizable traits.

Our immersive character and vehicle selection and customization process takes place within our open-world universe, so characters can interact with their surroundings even as users modify them in real time.
