First GSY video of Kingdom Come

First GSY video of Kingdom Come

The alpha version of Kingdom Come: Deliverance is now available to all backers, and thanks to the kindness of the developers (and the help of a fellow Gamersyde member), we have been able to capture a few minutes of this demo. As you'll see, despite a few pop-up issues, the game in its current state really looks fantastic, so it's safe to say it puts Cry Engine 3 to good use. We've also been quite impressed by the game's body awereness, something we think is surprisingly lacking in most titles today. These very few minutes in the world of Kingdom Come have been very immersive to say the least and we have to say we love the original score. Again, we'd like to thanks the development team for sending us a code, expect to see more of the game in the very near future.
Note: The few frame rate drops you might notice are due to the capture.

Really, really beautiful in a photoreal kind of way.

As soon as the choppy NPCs showed up the illusion was gone, though. But its an alpha so..

Wow, that looks fantastic!

I am really looking forward to it. Could need some work on the animations though. But I think to offer a small world and continiously expand it is a good approach for a small dev team.

hmm the environments look fantastic but as someone else stated this is all totally ruined by the really bad ingame characters lol, what with the jerky movements they also do not look good either or fit in with how the rest of the game looks.

It reminds me of vanishing of ethan carter..graphically fantastic environments but ingame characters that look like they are from a 2006 game

In many cases, the lighting and Physically-Based Rendering makes it look close to the real deal.

Would've been even better footage without Motion Blur, very apparent pop-in and with much higher Level-Of-Detail distance.

But, yeah, it's just a Tech Alpha.

I love it. Just stunning. They make better use of the cryengine than crytek themselve, but that's ofc just my own view of things.

Amazing.

The pop-up is just awful. Current hardware is not ready for graphics like this. I do not like it when they push it like this, because stuff like pop-up and LoDs completely negate realism.
Even aliasing is not as unrealistic, because it is always there. But when something changes form or appears out of nowhere, it kills the immersion.

This looks phenomenal, not just technically but artistically too, very beautiful environments. Id love to just walk around with an oculus and an omni treadmill lol.

Nice job :)

They have their own mocap studio now so I'm sure we'll see great improvements in all areas including animations as it matures in its development :)

Why not go outside to the country side and see the real thing? :-)

About the game


What's up?
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Melmoth: oh god, that is amazing. the sounds and visuals are insane for a sim. (9 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @droezelke: For both them? Mbapp was 20 odd yards out. His positioning was shite. Should never have let that one past him. (17 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke If FIFA didn't object so long to get a VAR, the concept could have been bug-fixed 10 years ago. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke Then the shot came and as he tried to correct to the right, he was leaning on the wrong leg and went out of balance. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @MrWhite: That's not what happened. He couldn't see the ball, so he first stepped a bit to the left to see where the ball was... (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Croatia's keeper's a bit shite too. At least try to dive and not sit on your arse. (1 Hour ago)
