Treyarch’s director of online Dan Bunting goes through some of the engine upgrades Call of Duty fans can expect in Black Ops II, including better lighting techniques, more detailed environments and “more destruction.”
They should just license frostbyte 2 for the next game. I know it'd be like sleeping with the enemy or something but it's a superior engine. They could very likely even reuse many of their art and sound assets with little trouble. Making gameplay the same is only a matter of tweaking physics and motion.
EA doesn't license Frostbite 2 outside of EA studios.
Aww that's sad, it's too bad that in order to remain competitive all the big business have to remain very walled off from each other. Sharing resources could lead to very quick progress, technology wise.
There's other options that are on par with Frostbite 2 that are widely available. Namely Unreal 3 and Cryengine 3
I agree with Cryengine. That is a fantastic engine!
I believe it when I see it! Last time I checked Black Ops did worse graphics than mw2. meanwhile MW3 was almost the same as mw2... I will still look into Black Ops 2, but Im not sure what to think of any more... is it a good or a bad thing..
If it's not up to par or better Frostbite, then it's not worth mentioning. Treyarch is setting themselves up for failure.
So glass will shatter even better? That's the only destruction in COD lol.
cmmaaannnn.... dont forget exploding barrels/cars.
Those are scripted events
Everything is freakin scripted in those games. =/
Hey hey hey.... u can also knock cups and bottles of of tables.... or was that duke nukem 3d... can't remember now.
you can maybe if your lucky the cups could some how fly into the enemies screen :P
I shot bananas on the Village map and nothing happened but a little mark on them. Bullet proof bananas.lol
I won't be happy till the shadows' shadows have shadows
More destruction for CAMPAIGN
Why don't you guys just wait until the game comes out. :D
Sounds like: Mw3 engine keeping up with our competitors graphics(BF3) at 60 fps.
They could upgrade to Source engine and do the same thing.
Yeah right Treyarch, Hahaha the trailer showed the same outdated graphics. They've got billions and never invest in a NEW Engine, a shame.
