Images of Gears of War

Images of Gears of War

Here are a couple of images that many of you have seen, but some haven't. They've been cirkulating on the net during the last month, and I just saw that we didn't have them in the database so here they are. It'll be a nice X06!

It will also make it run at 10 fps... stop saying it will make it look better, it looks spectacular as it is. I'd rather it look like this than smoother edges and rubbish frame rate =/

It is totally different in motion. The technical issues are what they are, UE3.0 engine would need huge revamps to fully utilize X360 power, as making it render tile-based(which again would offer us AA).

_As far as I know_, Anti-Aliasing doesn't slow down the performance this much, because its hardware-implemented in the embedded DRAM of the GPU.

A few questions about Gears....

Are there ANY vehicles you can use in it?

Will it be co-op over xbox live? As in, co-op campaign?

Someone answer please, because my friend wants to know and it will be the
difference between him getting a PS3 or a 360..

I welcome your friend to the world of the Xbox360,

Ign interview with CliffyB:- "As for transportation, there will also be an assortment of Coalition robots and vehicles, while The Locusts rely on beasts and organic weapons."

Xbox.com "Emergence Day" announcement:- "Battle through the challenging single-player campaign, or take the war online as Gears of War pushes the limits of Xbox Live® from intense, nail-biting multiplayer firefights and thrilling, online co-op to explosive downloadable content."

There are screenshots of the vehicles somewhere online, I'll try and find them :)

Seriously, it does need AA. The bad guy on the right of the second picture looks mighty PS2ish without it, not to mention he seems like he could be suffering from some PS3 texture popout.
Commented on 2006-09-24 15:28:46
stop with ineducated guesses
UE3 engine scales very Badly with multisampling because the AA works before the shadowing system in a post space, if you turn on a 4x msaa, then the shadowing become 4 times slower
this is a problem of UE3, with x360, ps3 and pc too

if you don't trust me, search the words of the developers.

the engine don't uses tile, edram for aa, but motion blur and hdr, this is far from what the console can do, but it's already the best I've seen in realtime on every platform at 30 fps

I think it does use 2xAA, from what I can tell from these screenies and my experience with games on my PC where I can set the AA-level myself..

I wish they would make next-gen consolegames adaptable to what resolution the you run it at.. Like at least 4xAA if someone plays on a 480i SDTV, and less AA if needed to keep performance up to par when someone plays on a HDTV in 720p.. Now it's just the same AA-level for everything (2xAA for most Xbox 360 games), which results in lots of aliasing for people playing in older SDTV's (like myself)..
