Sounds great. No chance of being Steamworks, no?

Nice to see them put some effort to the PC-version that was first not meant to be. :)

Is the blur meant to represent their disdain towards the PC audience? Not showing them anything?

Why must Ubisoft put their anti-PC propaganda even in their screenshots?!

:P

I really hate motion blur in games tbh, it ruins it because it makes it feel like you're viewing everything through a camera even more, kills the belief that I'm actually playing the character. I know it IS a camera and I know their is numerous technical reasons to the blur as well as a stylised use of it, but I still really dislike it. Hope Ubi don't botch this up though.

It's not a real camera. That distinction is more semantics than anything. Depth of field and motion blur are two things I turn off in most games that let me, because they're almost always horribly implemented.

DX11 and high quality assets you say? The graphics whore in me is pleased.

Can't wait for it next month! :D

at the end of the month im getting my self build which meets all the requirements for the Recommended Configuration, ill be getting an AMD Bulldozer 4170 cpu with an ATI 6870 GPU and 8GB kingston hyper x DDR3 1600 memory running on windows 7 pro, all for just a little bit over £400, not bad when you think about it as the next gen consoles will be at least £300 when they come out in 2013 (might come out in 2013 except for the wii u which is supposed to be out before xmass 2012).

... I can agree if you mean over bearing of screen based motion blur... but wave a hand in front of your face. Surprise, it blurs with motion. Object based motion blur is perfectly realistic.

I love motion blur, but not in a exagerated way. Enough to see the game, but also enough to notice the motion blur. Many games can pull it off nicely.
The only motion blur I hate is when it looks disorted, kind of like a screentearing. Unreal Engine has it and Lost Planet 2.

About the game


What's up?

    Sdarts @MrWhite: The new Tomb Raider games are great and very fun to play. As for the "killing hundreds" argument, If I had to kill hundreds of evil men to survive and save my loved ones, would do it as well (1 minute ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, I didn't say anything about politics within the company. Only that the company giving a game for free is "generous" no matter how you look at it, since they did it of their own free will. (2 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @GriftGFX: Angelina Jolie looked fierce and was physically strong as well. In the second movie, she was so strong they had to use a man with a wig as a double for dangerous scenes. (3 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Sdarts: I think it's probably more complicated than you think. And sure Blizzard is "free" but don't think that's a blank check for creators. That's just not how it ever works. (5 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Looks nothing like her? What are we expecting exactly? Triangle boobs? :P (5 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @alimokrane: Tomb Raider movie looks bad imho. They changed the story and characters' backgrounds, plus I hated that they cast Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft, she looks nothing like her. (7 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts As for them not selling the game anymore, that doesn't mean shit really, since tens of thousands of games aren't sold anymore, yet almost no company is giving them for free. It's still generous. (8 minutes ago)
