The day Guerrilla Games showed their new title for the first time, I knew this was exactly my taste, from the sci-fi/post apocalyptic-background to the lush landscape to the role playing elements. Graphically it competes with the Witcher (at least on consoles) and I guess until release Guerilla can handle those close level-of-detail pop-ins. A system seller.

Just beautiful!

You can really tell how inspired Guerrilla was by The Witcher 3 (also, if i recall correctly, the lead quest designer from TW3 is working on this game)

I don't think this has anything to do with The Witcher at all. :-) We have seen all these things before. Beautiful scenery, cyber creatures......it's more like Enslaved...

Turok?

just kidding ;)

this just laid the remaining worries i had to rest. it looks legit. witcher 3 meets dino-bots. the combat looks fun, and with plenty of depth to take down enemies. the world seems beautiful and vast. i'm excited for this.

Open world, 3rd person, dialogue trees, same quest designer.... I mean, it has some similarities.

Enslaved isn't open world, and its a coop shooter/brawler/platformer... this is nothing like Enslaved.

Last E3 it was the best game and this E3 as well for me this is most impressive game.

Turok was great! :-)

I'm surprised how well it runs.
Commented on 2016-06-14 13:34:49
Looks very good, too good in fact. And I also felt that "Witcher" vibe... can't put my finger on it...

But no aliasing - are we seeing a NEO-demo here? Days Gone also seemed very NEO-ish to me...
Commented on 2016-06-14 13:59:52
Could end up being pretty good!

It sure does look impressive. But if it is running on NEO, then why does it look like 30fps?

Game looks great but I have to say the art direction is bad. 1991 straight to video sci fi. It distracts me from what great gameplay is on display. If only they could have switched it out for a Princess Mononoke game.

There are studios using really effective custom antialiasing techniques nowadays. For example look at Uncharted 4, that game had almost zero aliasing.
Commented on 2016-06-14 16:21:22 In reply to AndreasZ94
yeah but Uncharted 4's AA is also blurry and and undermines the image quality (there are gorgeous exceptions desert level). I prefer the sharpness of this game don't change it Guerilla.

The more I see this game the more I remember how cool Killzone 1&2 were and then I start to really believe in this game.

not really. it's regarded as having some of the best AA solution on consoles. full coverage without the loss of sharpness or detail.

Is U4's AA what causes everybody to have blur halo's around their heads especially noticeable during cutscenes? Just odd blobs around the hair / head.

that's the motion blur/DOF solution as far as i'm aware.

I don't think so. It's the AA.

I don't think so. It's the AA.
Uncharted 4 delivers the best image quality we've seen in a console game to date. Even in the face of rare titles like Tearaway Unfolded, with its high quality MSAA settings, Uncharted 4 stands tall. Naughty Dog has developed a temporal anti-aliasing technique that delivers results that sometimes manage to approach the quality of a super-sampled image. Thin edges are remarkably clean, shader aliasing is almost non-existent, and shimmering is all but eliminated. Large, complex fields of detailed foliage remain razor sharp even at a distance while finer details on Nate's weapons remain clearly visible. We noted similarities to the hybrid-reconstruction anti-aliasing used in Far Cry 4 but we cannot say for sure how this was achieved. Perhaps Naughty Dog will share more information on this in the future, as the results are stunning and this technique could benefit console games as a whole.

That's what DF had to say about the AA solution. The motion blur however is low-ish sample compared to say...doom. Plus DOF and alphas (hair) don't play nice.

I'm glad that Sony give them a chance in creating a new IP. Guerrilla can finally prove that are talented team. So far it looks even better than what i expected.

Hopefully Killzone is completely killed franchise now.They tried so many times with it, and it wasn't their thing. An fps failure i would call it.

Its Guerrilla Games, never question their technical wizardry. Killzone 2 still looks awesome.

Killzone has like a 60 degree FOV (if that) to save on performance :P

I also think these screenshots are BS image quality. Standard practice.

  • Sdarts
    Sdarts So Forza Horizon 3 also benefitted from FM6: Apex. Quantum Break's PC version was Remedy's first foray into DirectX 12 development. And I also agree it seems like it was decided late in the process. (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Source: [url] He was referring to Quantum Break on PC. Also, I'm sure Turn 10 shared what it learned from Forza Motorsport 6: Apex with Playground Games (3 Hours ago)

    alimokrane perform very well. I am expecting Gears 4 to follow suit. (4 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane To be honest, QB looks great on XO. the PC port was a fiasco really.. MS shouldnt have forced them to do it. Other games which intended to have a DX12 port well early look great. ReCore and Forza H3 (4 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Not that DX12 wasn't (isn't?) over hyped :D (4 Hours ago)

    nostradamus AW runs at 10fps on my laptop, when UE3 and other engines thrive running on that shit toaster. (4 Hours ago)
