Wow this is just awesome. Graphics are nice

Irishguy951556d ago

The three exclusives I want more than the rest are Ryse, Titanfall and Infamous. It's a damn shame I can't get Ryse, I hope TF coems to Ps4 eventually

aCasualGamer1556d ago

Absolutely amazing trailer, the visuals are really great.

BUT, and don't take this the wrong way, it's even clearer now that RYSE demo on E3 was on a PC.

There are some noticeable differences from this trailer and the build we saw at E3.

Either way, this is absolutely amazing.

FamilyGuy1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

This was a really nice trailer aside from the narrators voice, it kept sounding like Major Nelson to me.

*scratch head*
Odd to see you saying you're getting a PS4 irishguy, could swear you were more interested in the X1.

Anyway, if the game turns out to be as good as this trailer then Ryse might be more of a contender than I expected. It'll be interesting to see how it all turns out. Only about a month left, November is going to be crazy O.O

PFFT1556d ago

Most if not all demos that belonged to both next gen consoles were running on PC at E3 NO exceptions.

Irishguy951556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

Well familyguy, if you look at any of my posts talking about MS, i'm clearly against them for their business policies over the last 7 or 8 years.

I normally talk about the fanboys if im criticizing either 'side'/ I have never planned on getting an X1. However I am also not a sony fanboy, i'm not going to stupidly pretend Sony has them completely outclassed when they clearly don't. Or overrate F2P games etc, i'm not going to lie about the power of either console, or how weak they are compared to a decent gaming PC, or how overrated 'optimization' is when most of the people on this site don't even understand it's the developers engines than improve, it improves for everything be it console or PC.

You can just go into various articles on this site and see clear hypocrisy for the majority of users. I just don't like that. I mean most of this site were completely against the fact that you were forced to pay to play online on Xbox. Now it's the same for Ps4 and guess what...Nobody cares anymore. That's right, don't pay the extra fee on top of your internet connection, sony is holding half your game hostage. Oh..but lets not mention that right Sony boys?

We still have people going on about 1080p and 60FPS and the X1's lack of it when there is literally only one real 'next gen' game on Ps4 that is even doing it. Which is Killzone. Just like the X1 which has only 1, Forza.

Ryse is also the best looking game on next gen consoles, it clearly is and I can only see denial about it. Is it the most impressive spec wise? Probably not. It is 900p afterall. Why does it look so good? Simple, it's a linear action game. Same way ND get Uncharted so much better looking than the likes of Battlefield.

Now after reading this, try to understand, I will not be getting an Xbox again. I'm getting a Ps4, there is a massive chance that PS will have a wider variety of great games. Just like this gen and the gen before it. PS+ is a better deal, even though it might end up a slightly worse gaming service(it probably won't unless MS are doing something I don't know about). I like F2P games but I know for a fact that they suffer from being free, they will NEVER take a spot on my 'top games list'. It just doesn't happen.

Edit- At Septic down there, what does it mean to playh like a next gen game? As far as we've seen every new game coming out is doing **** all 'new' gameplay wise. Killzone is playing it extremely safe too. Ryse is just being another hack and slash with nothing unique about it.

P0werVR1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

Oh yeah!

Looking very nice here. But the trailer seemed rush. But either way, Story seems real good and the fighting combat looks much better now.

I'm finally swayed. I'll be getting this too at launch. I guess this is the first of many trailers to come until launch.

4Sh0w1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

Oh wow Ryse looks really next gen. No lauch exclusive visually at least looks better. lol at people still in disbelief it was on X1 hardware at E3

"Our hands-on involves a short five minute demo that is once again categorically running on Xbox One hardware."

zebramocha1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

@Irish the comparison to ps+ and live is wrong,people payed $60 for it and Ms did not do much with the money,they barely put out any new games for the last years of the xbox,at least ps+ had stuff to offer instead of a subscription and I'm disappoint in the cryengine,while looking good I feel this game barely beats gow ascension.

Killzone sf is totally different from previous installments,bigger environments,stealth,traversal mechanics and nonlinear mission structure.

JokesOnYou1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

Oh how sweet it is. lol and just like that Crytek made the latest hit-seeking Cinemablend article spreading BS misinformation look even more ridiculous. Yep sure cant label this as just qte game and the game is visually looking better than ever, actually Crytek has pushed this game beyond what we saw at E3 in so many ways.....all on this dvr box they call X1.= Ill take it. I got to say this Ryse vid looks very impressive overall too, looks to be alot of potential for a great story here, gameplay is smooth and graphics look like a superb next gen quality title. Really just makes the haters look very foolish.....I'm looking at you William Usher and others vvvv lmfao

thechosenone1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

downgrade from 1080p(if it ever was running at that res)to 900p...30fps...problems coding for the hardware is all I see when I look at Ryse. Sorry MS but I'm not buying it.

Crytek Admits Microsoft Had To Rewrite Xbox One Code To Run Software

AngelicIceDiamond1556d ago

And this is running in game on X1?

Gotta say I'm very impressed.

RedDeadLB1556d ago

Currently the next gen exclusives I'm interested in are:

Xbox One - Ryse (thanks to this video mostly)

PS4 - Infamous SS, Order 1886 (looks interesting to say the least), definitely KZ: Shadowfall. Maybe Knack.

HighResHero1556d ago

Ryse is the one game at this point I would really like to try on my PS4 and I think it's neat that I have ancestors from over near there.
If it ends up being any good I'll look out for it on PC or play it over at a friend's house.

loulou1555d ago (Edited 1555d ago )

a double holy f'ck and mind blown..

1 for the trailer. and a 2nd one for the lack of mindless trolling and fanboyism in here. mind has been blown equally by both.

well done everyone (except the chosenone) for keeping it real.

first time i have seen this in 6 yrs of looking at n4g :-)

slapedurmomsace1555d ago


so what? I have a 60" plasma LG TV with 20/20 vision. I sit probably 8-10 ft away, I can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p, let alone 900p, and, with up scaling you won't either. Resolution between 900p and 1080p only comes into play with a computer monitor that you are sitting close enough to smell. Move on.

josephayal1555d ago

Titanfall IS a timed exclusive. It is coming to ps4, after a year

Lets just hope the gameplay is as good as the visuals!

Xsilver1556d ago

Awesome trailer but that narrator needs to go.

spicelicka1555d ago

good thing he won't be in the game, I think it was just for the trailer. The voice acting is really well done though.

_QQ_1556d ago

I'm not getting an xboxone but i can't Deny these are the best looking NEXT GEN graphics for a console game.

Gozer1556d ago

Easily the best looking next-gen title we have seen so far.

Xsilver1556d ago

"Easily one of the best looking next-gen title we have seen so far." dont worry i fixed it for ya

DeadManIV1556d ago

Graphics are awesome, no arguing against that aspect of this game.

Septic1556d ago

Yeah but many on here will desperately try and do that. It says more about them than it does about the game though. The game truly looks next-gen. The only question is, will it play like a next-gen game?

DeadManIV1556d ago

That is the question Septic.

spicelicka1555d ago

I don't think any launch title will play like a nex-gen game. It's always been the case, graphics improve first then comes the gameplay innovations within the next year.

Games like Destiny and Division look like they'll play nex-gen, but i think the reall stuff will come end of next year.

Saviour1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

it's just me or animation are much smoother now than the last gameplay they showed? i hope they removed screen tearing on final.

1556d ago
BallsEye1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

Amazing viuals! No LOD, characters have same models in-game like in cutscenes, and as Crytek stated, every character got same fidelity as Marius. This is very impressive! Finally we see a new face of Ryse, the one that should be shown way before. If xbox one has such probelms with dev tools and is so weak as everyone in here assume then I have NO Idea HOW crytek managed to pull off this kind of graphics! Even fat guys cheeks are realistically shaking somewhere at 1:30 lol.

Day one for me!

PawnSacrifice1555d ago

Looks like i found a replacement for my Watch Dogs preorder.

Fantangoooo1555d ago

i was contemplating going for a ps4 but perhaps this footage has given me more confidence in the x1 again.. but i need more..

Holy cow!

I've played the MP gladiator pit co-op at EGX but nice to see some stunning story footage.

Bring it on.

CRAIG6671556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

How did you find the MP? It looked like it would become rather tedious to me...
Some games just don't need MP, one in particular that stands out for me was Bioshock2 and although I played it alot it was obvious it was more of an after thought IMO, I kinda get the same feeling with this, Ryse looks like it has the potential to have an epic campaign but Given Microsoft are very online/cloud focussed they probably pushed Crytek into delivering on online portion to the game... Clearly I am just thinking out loud...

Oh and dead space 2... worst MP ever, why,just why?

Animal Mutha 761556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

I guess it could get tedious if you just button mash but the fun is in learning the combos and stringing them together to make even more elaborate free flow combat.

A bit like the feeling you get in Batman when you single handed take out 20 guys although in the case of Ryse its a lot less and a bit more weight and clunk to proceedings. It really feels like you are wielding a heavy shield and sword.

The other fun part is playing it co-op with a mate as I did. you can then time and coordinate your moves to produce gruesome combos and executions.

The enemy AI try to split you up and flank you and the quality of opponents gets better. Once they start to block and counter really effectively you then have to out smart them.

There is def some laughs to be had in the mp mode.

Its all about the co-op!

CRAIG6671556d ago

@Animal Mutha 76, that sounds reassuring man, Hopefully you are right, I had also made the batman connection first time I saw the game.

It could be rather epic, Not a day one purchase for me yet but I am interested.

Still Forza 5 and Killer instinct will keep me very busy for a while I reckon.

JackISbacK1555d ago

i too played ,gameplay is not something very new but the way they represented and its smoothness ,it feels a whole new kind of hack and slash first you use to engage enemy get some damge and do it simuntaneosly to every one and tere appers button to press ,at first it looks like god of war ,then you feels damge done to ememys surrounding you also dies while pressing differnt buttons and combat is also not simple like god of war,there are amzing combos and enemys are intellegent and hard to take damge they use to attack you quickly and game is also little challenging and difficlt its not agame like just wave your sword and every one will die by them self.must buy this game ,but the best gameplay what i find was of dead risimng 3 that game is having many things never seen before ,and is loot of fun also buying that game both are amzing i'm also buing ps4 2 to 3 months after when good games will come to it never ,i have no interest in kz:shadow fall ,it has only good graphics and very simple liner non appealing game play but infamous, titanfall looks very fun.still to see order and halo 5 and quantum break.

kewlkat0071555d ago

Did you get to play as Glaber?..

Convas1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

In before:
Dat 900p
It's a 1.3TF GPU, nothing good can come from it
Meh, Marius Quickius Eventus
Press A to win!
It's just an upscaled 360 game!111!!1!

Right, now that we've gotten that out of the way. HOT DAMN! How can anyone POSSIBLY say that this isn't a next-gen game?

I've been a fan of this game since they announced it as Codename: Kingdoms @ E3 2010, so it's amazing for me to have seen this evolve from 360 Kinect game to full blown Next-gen Title.

Ghost_of_Tsushima1556d ago


Isn't the first GIF you posted CGI?

Convas1556d ago

Yo, I see you grasping and I'm going to go ahead and point out that EVERYTHING in that trailer is in-engine footage.

Nice try though!

Ghost_of_Tsushima1556d ago

So it was in-engine not gameplay correct?

Convas1556d ago

Are you being intentionally obtuse? You can't tell between in-engine cutscenes and gameplay? They mixed in both in the trailer.

Septic1556d ago

"So it was in-engine not gameplay correct?"

Do you even game?

StifflerK1556d ago

Here , watch Cevat Yerli's DICE presentation,

that has all your answers.

There is no pre-rendered stuff or video - the cutscenes and gameplay use the exact same character models at the same fidelity + there's no LOD which is pretty impressive imo, esp for a launch game.

Angels37851556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

Just want to point out that "In engine" vs "in game" are actually misleading (this goes for any ps4 game that has claimed "in engine" as well. What the difference is, is that they are using in game resources to generate a computer generated image (like cutscenes looking better than gameplay) or tech demos (using resources, but under the best conditions) or Gameplay cutscenes (this is a big one nowadays because games are getting good enough to look at up close, but essentially when a gameplay cutscene is run it is still controlled and the developers know the camera angles backdrops etc. so they usually ad in higher quality shaders, lighting, post processing effects and AA or MXAA to add to the image temporarily and then it all drops once you go back into gameplay).

So when a developer says "Oh the entire thing was done "In engine" it just means "hey guys it not CGI and not complete BS, this is just a slightly better idea of what we want it to look like". Hope this helps, but feel free to look it up! Plus Im not bashing on RYSE's graphics because it hangs with the best of them, I'm just pointing out something developers say that tends to mislead people from BOTH sides. How many times have we see an "In engine trailer" that when we get to the game is not the same (even marginally).

OT: This Ryse gif you posted Covas of the Man saying "Get him!!" when his face jiggles from yelling that was great! true next gen stuff right this gen he would be a fat solid blob xD

sobotz1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

It's not CGI. When you're playing the game, all cutscenes are gonna be like that. Now, I prefer the 900p version than the 1080p one, characters's faces can be seen clearly now.

IHassounah1556d ago

Actually that is a fully in game footage , it's even in-game if you saw the new vids , if you go and see the new create a name for the move vids , you'll realize that it isn't CGI

Oh well maybe next time.

FrigidDARKNESS1556d ago

There is some gameplay footage in the trailer. The game looks amazing.
