Ubisoft's The Crew Sets the Next Gen Graphics Bar Extremely High

TG writes: Ubisoft has revealed their launch video and screenshots for their next gen title "The Crew". What did we think about it? (PC, PS4, The Crew, Xbox One)

Incredible graphics. The PS4 can't get here soon enough.

Ya man...good times are coming. Glad ubi is all over ps4 and using it as its lead platform. Apparently all ubi's gameplay demos were running on ps4 hardware at the show.

The stage demo I watched they had Xbox One controllers in their hands. I thought they was leading on PS4 also but who knows.

At E3 i played it on PS4. Didn't really notice if there was an Xbox controller on other stations.

DriveClub still looks better. It's unfortunate that they used a CG trailer to open up with the game.

very VERY different type of games

Agree this game is unique. Closest thing to it is probably NFS... Kinda. But with drive club coming on ps plus and a new need for speed probably on launch day with drive club I will have to pass. Maybe catch the sequel if there is one.

Ya different games but the article didn't say The Crew sets graphics bar for Arcade racers high. So it's a fair comparison. Played both and still enjoy DriveClub more. Need For Speed was also way better than The Crew. I was disappointed in The Crew once the video went into what the game is like and not what it seemed it would be like in the CG trailer. You know racing around and people meeting up to help. Turned into a chase this guy down, run him off the road, race to here first kinda game.

I agree that killed the game for me. I saw the CGI and thought OMG! then i saw the actual game and it just ruined it for me.

This day and age CGI should be done with, optimize ur engine.

I like pretty things but lets make the gameplay the focus for next gen please.
Destrania  +   683d ago
What?! No, the bar is set by the real-time PS4 tech demo The Dark Sorceror. Driveclub looks better than this as well, Driveclub looks literally real.
agreed. Game looks impressive but Driveclub looks better. But if we're talking about setting bars i give it to the division. Ubisoft isn't playing around anymore on the graphics front. But honestly so many games had such good graphics this e3 it's hard to give to any one. But the division really stood out to me for some reason.

The devs stated this game takes 2 hours to get from coast to coast. That's setting a bar for openworld racers and for it to look as decent as it does.
Destrania  +   683d ago
I agree Ubioft isn't messing around next-gen. The Division does look fantastic. It said at the beginning of the demo they showed at the Sony conference that it was powered by 'Snow Drop' (new engine?)
steven83r  +   683d ago
And its amazing what they did with The Dark Sorcerer. I got to see the extended demo at E3 and the developer stopped it in the end and showed us it's not pre rendered by moving the camera, turning off texture on character, turning off background, lighting. And stated this demo is the worst they will be able to do on PS4. And they are hitting CG quality of 5 years ago and development just started. Amazing.
Destrania  +   683d ago
Yeah, I agree, it really is amazing.

that's in game project cars, we'll see what this game looks like in the actual game

love the trailer though, and am keeping this on my radar
Project cars has impressive models. What is so jarring though about it is the lighting and reflections aren't realistic. The pic you posted is a perfect example of that. No real car would reflect like that under those lighting conditions.
Destrania  +   683d ago
Yeah, I agree. It just doesn't look realistic. Driveclub is focusing on everything (car models, lighting, environments, etc.)
thinktwice  +   683d ago
if that is actually in game footage gameplay it looks incredible but I just watched the multi player of the game and it definitely doesn't look like this it looks real bad compared to this trailer so what's going on can anybody tell me that? or is that trailer not actually gameplay I don't understand why the multiplayer looks way worse then this...:(

In my opinion Drive Club graphics-wize looks a lot better. This is despite the fact that it is first party title. I am pretty sure The crew can look even better than what it is now.
