Brand new screenshot of Killzone 2. This screen shows off some of the lighting player will see as well as the rocket launcher.
If this is in-game, all I have to say is that the textures could use a bit of work. The character models and ambient objects look good but the environmental textures like buildings and railings and stuff look a little bland. Also the lighting system looks great. I like the lighting on the scaffolding where the Helgast are crossing and the rocket launcher looks alright. I don't know if I like the green orb looking thing for the eye sight.
this is a new SCREENSHOT, it never said if its from the prealpha version or the final game, THIS pic is defenitily PRE alpha, ive seen that place in the tech demo they showed, its not to show of the final game, only what technology they are using. these guys work really hard and u will remember my post when u see the newer pics at GDC, so remember that i posted this.
btw, i would be surprised to see this game come out before november,
this is not a game that needs to be rushed, from all the hype they released back in 2005, this game is gonna show what the PS3 was made for, and if they dont deliver that, many gamers would consider PS3 a failure... however if they do deliver(which i know they will) then gamers are gonna know that PS is the real gaming brand...
And I mean alot.
Hmm I dont see what you see. The pic is small but it looks great.
Bit low res to criticise, the lighting is said to be very important to the gameplay, hopefully they have a lot of new info @ GDC
ohh the textures how will we live. lol
The pic is a low quality picture. But i am so excited for this game. I cant wait to see how the shadows in the game will effect PSN play. It is gunna be WILD!!! GIMME GIMME GIMME
KZ2 looks sweet. This game better not miss its september launch date. September is even pushing it farther than necessary. hopefully it releases in july and then resistance can take september.
Many of you guys obviously don't understand the reason of the gamerzone. Sigh.
Textures need a lot of work ? lol, alright crawl back to the troll cave will ya, at least it's HD ;)
isn't that image from the E3 trailer? Edit: Ok thanks, because I was a little confuse. But didn't PSU played Killzone 2 at E3? So this could have been from their play trough of the game.
no...there is no scenes from E3 that show the rocket launcher. If you check, which I have, there are no scenes with the rocket launcher facing Helgast coming over a scaffold either... The only video that shows a rocket launcher is from the GC Leipzig showings
It doesn't look like any other pictures or on-stage video from E3 we have seen.
Relax... There are countless games who's pre-release screenshots are refined to exagerate the actual game's graphics
@All the texture remarks.
The picture quality of the compressed image is poor by default. Look at the PSU watermark it's blurry on the edges as well. The image is not at its true resolution and has been severely compressed.
And it looks compressed and pixelated.
<<< My avatar is clearer. I don't think anyone can doubt that this game will be graphically impressive.
looks good to me
Awesome. Wicked cool.
So many experts.....
That's the problem nowadays; nobody can enjoy a game for what it is. Everybody and their momma have apparently gone to DeVry to study video game design and now have such profound and super critical criticism for all these games.
Ambient Light, Particle Effects, Texture popping, Frame rate, multiplayer experience....
It just gets entirely too complicated and convoluted when you read comments on screen caps nowadays.
Leave all expert advice on game design to those that actually do it for a living, and if you do (cause there is always that one that will say that they do...). Why not try and work on your craft, why not try and find new ways to eliminate a lot of the guess work when it comes to coding for these "Movie like visual" type games.
It really does get tiresome to consistently come on here and have to read twenty different expert opinions as to why a this screen capture or this game may look the way it does.
If you were really knowledgeable you really wouldn't be wasting your time trying to school fanboys on gaming blogs.....
btw: game looks great, can't wait to Play!!!
too many armchair experts around
guys look at the reflections of the light. that's sick lighting effects! so sick!
This is from E3 2007, the 25 min demo.
That is not new. :(
Quite right Clinton, this is definitely just a screenshot from the old Leipzig build, kinda reminds me of when the "new" screenshots showed up on IGN a month or so ago and they were really just the same old ones that were one CVG like a month after E3 but with a different watermark... not new at all. Still, this particular positioning was not present in any of the videos I've seen so far (at least not that I recall) but from what I see it still looks like the same old build. Besides, more sites took individual videos at Leipzig then just Gametrailers since it was an open event; it could easily be from one of them.
This game just looks better in motion. The details from the dynamic lighting and shadows to the lifelike animations are simply superb. This screenshot doesn't really do anything from me, I can't wait for new footage.
you said it , ico boy!
Can't fight the urge. Must shoot people and planes down in warhawk and laugh at the stupid people that get back into planes. Then mine all the planes and laugh at them more when they continue to get into planes, when I continue to shoot them down and mine the rest of them. Hahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaa! Love the lighting for this game though.
these graphics are just a cherry on a verry lovely cake just so long as the gameplay is good because whats graohics without gameplay
AGREED!!!!! plus i love cake...and cherry's. Soooooo i think a pre-order is needed!
I think it really is about time for an information overload for KZ2. We have had enough of the E32007 demo and would like to see new areas that aren't as dark and a bit more colorful. Resistance 2 announcement has taken some steam away from KZ2 and KZ2 needs to win it back. Hell, we have more info about R2 than KZ2 at this point!
it isn't supposed to be a fantastically colored halo game, it is supposed to be gritty and depressing, you forget which planet they are on, the toxic air craphole Helghan.
You obviously haven't read any of the interviews have you? They are gonna introduce a variety of locales, many of which won't have the same ol' gray and brown color scheme. And since when is a little bit of color variety bad?
just as long as they dont screw the gameplay up this is a definate buy
I think the next time they share some official vids, screenshots, whatever we are going to be blown away again. E3 was pre-alpha I believe and I think the graphics may be a bit better then it was shown then. We need more KZ2 info indeed.
I need to play; demo please!
I find it funny that the "640p" crowd will criticize the hell out of any PS3 titles to death.. yet they ignore severe issues for certain titles just because they convince themselves that the game is so amazing. Give the PS3 the same leeway. It produces things that the other console cant imagine on a large scale. Sure 1 screen from 1 still of 1 part of the game might not look spectacular, but its an entire package. Killzone 2 has realtime Global Illumination. Until a 360 title can hang with that, I suggest everyone have a nice warm glass.
Wrong zone buddy. Try the open if you want to start this sh!t.
looks awesome as usual
One more spectacular picture from one of the future greatest game of all time!!!! Killzone 2 will crush the competition on other consoles, like bugs...
I look forward to playing this game almost as much as I look forward to Christ's second coming. That's saying a lot. lol
It looks great. But they have sunk so much of their resources into trying to live up to the original target renders, I wonder if the rumors are true: that KZ2's development has been a train wreck for the developers. Budgets and deadlines have certainly been overrun. Let's hope it's more than a tech demo! The deferred rendering/lighting technology is very cool. I'm sure in the next generation of games it will be common practice. This is the real promise of the Cell, to video games at least.
AMAZING as always!!
Honestly....I think the gameplay will be fine. For some reason....I'm not really worried. They have a lot of very talented people working this project, and somehow I know that it'll all work out exceptionally.
the game looks very average
Your Name says it all.
Even thou I think poos3 must be a 12 year old child, I do agree. The graphics look worse than RFOM. I hope its just because of poor screen shots.
please direct me to a IN GAME Resistance 2 shoot that looks better. Oh you cant because there arent any!
Dont get me wrong, im loving Resistance 2 and loved the first but KZ2 is "real" its right there, im holding off praising R2 until i see some true in game graphics, not some renders!
LOL look at this kids comment history,he can't even spell!
Anyways Killzone 2 is looking good,I can't wait,this and both MGS4 and Resistance 2 will make my year!;)
this looks like the sharpest and best graphics i've ever seen in a videogame. this game will blow everything else out of the water. go gg!
Looking good! But it does look kinda dumbed down from what we saw earlier.
will be Amazing no doubt about that. I hope we can see new in-game scenes in GDC 2008. And A trailer will be relrased later this month for Resistance2 all in IN-Game footage, maybe one for Killzone2 too.
I still get the same "washed out colours" feeling from it. We'll have to see how the game plays. The graphics are good enough that I won't complain, they just aren't anything that hasn't already been done.
Waiting until Feb 18th to see if there is more Killzone 2. The E3 demo of Killzone 2, you did see that some textures needed to be reworked on and I will probably get disagrees.
Killzone 2 is going to be running at 30 frames per second (FPS) and at 720p so no 1080p for now unless they surpise us.
does anybody know if you can use this controller on the PS3? Is there an Adaptor? http://www.geeks.com/detail... Kewlkat + Dualshock + Shooter = No! No!
The ps3 controller is fine for FPS. I mean seriously. Give it a break.
we have that word "Preference" in the world. dualshock sucks @ss for shooters..
Great story! a screenshot! meh..
When they show it at the next E3 event.
can someone upload this image .. I cant open PSU screenshot section.. its a strange error.. thx for your help :)
