Looks awesome.

Hair Physics? Really AMD!

Would of been cooler if it was part of an overall package of Physics as most game characters are guys with Helmets or short hair cuts!

Well we have had boob physics for going on 10 years now, hair only seems like the next logical step.
NastyDaddeh  +   1073d ago
booty should be the next step, not hair.
Pozzle  +   1074d ago
To be fair, hair physics are something that many devs have struggled with this gen. So I can see why it's being focused on.
shutUpAndTakeMyMoney  +   1074d ago
Most game hero's have no hair. I don't think hair should be a focus. They should focus on making it easier and a no brainer for devs to push pc graphics since it maybe easier. Unless it's an easy switch you flip they will be paying devs to use this like nVidia pays devs to use physics.

Until devs start using openCl in consoles we won't get much of this on a regular basis on pc.

But hey Amd still better than nvidia at least amd believes in open standard and nvidia divides the industry with their stupid physx and cuda.. No way in hell would I spend hundreds to have an nvidia feature that is rarely used but marketed with every gpu.

Anyway can't wait to see a another female hero to use this on! lol

The collision mesh looks awful.
aliengmr  +   1074d ago
Wow you're right. It doesn't even come close. Wonder what that was all about.
WarThunder  +   1074d ago
Hair Physics are great! but the game's overall graphics doesn't look good, very unpolished... There are 4 years old games that look better than this game.
gamernova  +   1074d ago
The video is not even at full 1080p. If at 480 it looks like 4 year old games in HD then damn this game must look pretty magnificent at its full potential.

Anyway, I have never bought a tomb raider game but I pre-ordered this one. It is pretty damn awesome looking and I really hope the hype equals to the quality the game actually delivers. So far...so good.
WarThunder  +   1074d ago
Actually i have Tomb raider (PC version)...
kwyjibo  +   1074d ago
This is next gen! Every individual hair moves!

Wait, where have I heard that before?
airshiraz  +   1074d ago
i love sqauare enix it really respects pc gamers
koehler83  +   1074d ago
Well, the portion that used to be Eidos does, anyway.
anticlimax  +   1074d ago
Frankly it doesn't look all that natural, even if you look past the fact that her hair is floating in the air above her shoulders.

It looks more like she has a dogs tail on the back of her head with the way it is shaking back and forth. What kind of strange winds does this island have?
MrAnderson  +   1074d ago
Flag blows left, hair to the right....nice one...
jagstar44  +   1074d ago
it's not perfect but it's a step in the right direction, hopefully as next generation progresses the technology will be refined to perfection along with other physics
xBigxBossx  +   1074d ago
No one needs to be hating on this. It's a step on the right direction and its impressive attention to detail.
LtFaku  +   1073d ago
It would be cool that the video was in HD.
kevnb  +   1073d ago
well thats sorta gimmicky, but the game is still great.
