GSY Video PC

French member atN reached out to us because he wanted to share a video of Star Citizen's latest alpha code he recorded himself. Since no one in the team owns the game, we are grateful he did.

Still looks like a tech demo and not a game, but the game is still a long way off. The graphics don't look amazing anymore considering what we are used to now on current gen consoles and pc.

Very happy to see updates of this game on Gamersyde, thank you for sharing this! I consider myself just a spectator regarding this game, so I'm not really following what's happening with it too closely, but throw some eyecandy videos at me anytime!

Nice use of 'Mesa' from Blade Runner 2049.

I mean, there is nothing jumping out at me here as being "a step ahead graphically".

Whether or not it's technically the next step, I dunno. There are some some very nice shots, but generally it visually looks kind of dull to me.

Thanks for the clip... It got delayed so much it doesn't really look all that anymore, aside from its imagined size. Looks like any other game. Knowing PS5 is around the corner this feels bland now. I'm more impressed with FH4, GOW, RDR2 and forthcoming RE2, Metro Exodus.

It is actually mind-blowing:
On the one hand extremely detailed assets like moon stations, big ships with walkable interior, nice particle effects, PBR, high-res textures etc.
On the other hand a gigantic scale & seamless transition from space to planet without loading screens

Facts: Cloud Imperium Games is the first developer that opens up a new era of immersion and gaming-experience and no other studio comes even remotely close to all the milestones that Chris Roberts and his team have achieved.

Chris Roberts: "...not doable on consoles... blah...PC only"
Yes of course it is doable on consoles. By the time this game will release we will have Playstation 5 and XBtwo. This is so ambitious that it will never be finished within the next 5 years.

Sorry, but what is your point? 2 years old Ghost Recon Wildlands on PC has better textures, more complex and detailed terrain and wood assets. an extremely high draw distance and also zero loading times between the biomes.

So what is your point?

I doubt that you would even need a nextgen console for this. The graphics shown in the video would - with maybe a few downscalings - also be possible on Xbox One X.

You do realize that the explorable area in Ghost Recon Wildlands probably isn't even close to 1% to the explorable areas ON FOOT cof Star Citizen IN IT's CURRENT STATE? I am talking of fully explorable moons not to talk of Vast reaches of space between these moons and one (or two) planet(s). Also, from what I have seen Ghost recon doesn't really look that great despite it's smaller scale. I am even confident in saying that even now in its unfinished state Star citizen looks better.

Also note, Citizen looks much better that when they first announced it so I won't be surprised if it keeps improving. I don't work at the devs so I can't say definitively but I won't be surprised if it does.

best looking Sci-fi MMO to date.
Squadron 42 however i'm most interested in. the tech in that game is very advanced.

Man this looks average, nice stuttering too. And all that hundreds of million dollars and they can't even get walking-animations right... is it at least fun to play? How are the missions?

No it doesn't.
If you played the current alpha 3.4 build for yourself during the free-flight-event (a few days ago) you would have realised that the animations in SC look rather outstanding especially the procedural walking animations on uneven surfaces.
Some devs at CIG already worked on Crysis 1.
By the way: you can adjust the walking speed by scrolling the mousewheel up or down.

1. There is no necessity for such a lagre game.
2. Here are some terrain shots, from Star Citizen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcKsvaUaAYk
In comparison Ghost Recon: https://www.flickr.com/photos/135887904@N06/sets/7...
I think the latter looks better, althouh it's 2 years old.

I imagine this will just be in papetual beta. And if it is actually finished, and more importantly, not janky, it's not going to look all that impressive anymore. They need to dial back the ambition and just make what they've got great. Otherwise I imagine we'll end up with a jack of all trades situation.

I will say though, it makes for some funny as fuck glitches right now.
