BiA3: One more image

Ubisoft et Gearbox keep teasing us before E3 with this new image of Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway. For the moment the game is only announced on PS3 and PC, but a 360 version is more than likely too.

Its already announced for the 360 as well. A gearbox developer has said publicly he can vouch for the next gen quality of the 360 version of this game.

Ubisoft and developer Gearbox are charging forward with a third entry in the Brothers In Arms series, this time bringing the World War II action exclusively to next-generation consoles and the PC.

FiringSquad: What is your opinion on the upcoming next-generation consoles (PS3 and Revolution) and how they compare to the already released Xbox 360?

Randy Pitchford: The 360 is a really exciting machine for us. I encourage any serious gamer to get one as soon as they can manage. I love mine with many of the titles that have already launched and I know there are some really amazing, truly next-gen games that won't be far off. I can personally vouch for the next-gen quality of Brothers in Arms 3, for example.


People are going crazy because the 360 wasn't mentioned in the official press release, but its been confirmed by many gearbox developers. They've sent images to websites telling people this image is from the 360 version.

Man look at the leaves on that tree.... looks like next next gen stuff..

quite clever using parallax mapping on the leaves.
Gives a surprisingly good effect, although you can still see some artefacts and the outline of the hedge is still there, shadows are on a flat surface, etc.

This shot is kind of lame compared to the other shot they showed us, :(
Commented on 2006-04-28 09:58:47
the foliage is unbelievable yet the fingers and aliasing on the characters fell off a bit in this pic....i contribute that to the fact these are the pic screens and also it is still a build
Commented on 2006-04-28 10:36:26
this looks...errr...i dont know, i have mix feelings :(
Commented on 2006-04-28 10:57:01

Commented on 2006-04-28 10:58:52
Now this looks like the true ingame rahter than those mind blowing first set of screens, but these screens look ok probley the same as call duty 2, i hope this screen is from pc version.
Commented on 2006-04-28 11:27:13
OMG it looks awesome...
Commented on 2006-04-28 11:28:32
Nice job on those leaves
Commented on 2006-04-28 11:37:00
Nice graphics I must say, also it reminds me of action man.
Commented on 2006-04-28 11:37:08
Very, very nice.

Blim: Gearbox devs have already confirmed it is still coming out for the 360 over on their forum. I think they'll be firing whoever put together that press release!

I think it's just the screenshot quality that makes it look worse than the rest. Some of that stuff (especially around the hands) should be cleaned up on your TV.
Commented on 2006-04-28 12:29:14
All these screenshots must be from a trailer to be shown in E3 i take it?

Looks great
Commented on 2006-04-28 12:41:12
But screenshots sometime don,t show the true power of the game. E3 we will see what is what.
Commented on 2006-04-28 13:35:18
Another dev said on the forum,mayby tehy thought everyone already know its coming for 360 so they just said PS3 in some magazines.

Or something like that,SO YES ITS COMING TO 360.
Commented on 2006-04-28 13:54:24
beautiful...who cares about the hands...seriosly i don't think i would have notice if nobody had pointed it out
Commented on 2006-04-28 14:03:08
brilliant foliage but i think the other shots looked better. hopefully we'll see how it looks in motion come e3
Commented on 2006-04-28 15:07:11
Looks like it miss AA but look fucking amazing!
Commented on 2006-04-28 15:11:11
Looking good, but the textures on the hands are lacking, alot.

And when is the game coming?
This is why dev doesnt dare to show pics way early,cause some people think they get exactly what they see from the start.
Commented on 2006-04-28 15:47:26
Bloody awesome and it isn't even done yet.

Good comments and observations Graham. That is a nice use of paralax mapping -- I am pretty surprised by it actually! Nice way to cheat to get a reasonable effect with minimal performance hit. Good eye on the shadows as well. If you stair at it you can see the hedge outline like you say and from angles where the poly edges are more flush the effect disappears. Definately some tradeoffs, yet as a minor prop it should be an excellent tradeoff.

The aliasing is notable (I wonder what Epic has done about MSAA on the 360 as their shadowing technique has some issues with it??) and the guys looks chunky in areas (the lower poly UE3 models) so we can see where the engine and games in general have a lot of room to stretch their legs, but this does look nice.
