Here's what the future of gaming will look like

Don't worry - we're not going to try and get you excited about pixels, wax lyrical over frame rates or wave a flag in the name of texture shading.

All we've got is a video that shows off the polished muscles of a new computer program. So far so boring, but it's this clever number-crunching, hardware-pushing program that's going to be powering some of your gaming escapes in the coming years - and it looks astonishing.

Demoed at the Microsoft's developer event Build 2015, the stage talk illustrates the potential of the DirectX 12 program, powering a glorious, larger-than-life build of Square Enix's upcoming Final Fantasy 15. Hair looks like... well, real hair. Skin shifts with unsettling realism and the lighting is just... you get the idea.

Have a flick through the video below. We've come a long way since Space Invaders
