The new Ryse build still shows some flaws mainly screen tearing

Screen tearing was the biggest culprit for effecting the Image Quality of PS3/360 games. Microsoft’s Albert Penello confirmed that the new Ryse trailer is entirely from a new build that runs on Xbox One with the upgraded CPU/GPU. It looks exceptional for sure. Unfortunately, as it turns out, it doesn’t seem to be completely free from screen tearing. (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

Kingthrash360  +   845d ago done with these articals...less than a month baby ps4/xbox in livingrooms we can all judge then.

that said screen tearing? i belive it.
what i cant belive is watchdogs delay. dam i wanted that day1 that was gunna be my midnight snack game! guess risogun will do and kz and 2k and contrast and knack prolly and ac and some other ps+ bonus freegames. should keep me occupied along with bf and r&c.

The still images don't give the game justice, the graphics on the new gameplay trailer look great.
Kingthrash360  +   844d ago
tbh trailers will never show tearing or framedropping or any other flaws. so as i said we can judge when released.

But,what is this game about?
black0o  +   844d ago
the trailer shows like 10% of gameply and 90% of cut-scenes, let us wait for 22nd ;)
Foxgod  +   844d ago

Thats explained in the trailers, greedy bastards made rome weak and corrupt, the Son of rome wants to restore it to former glory, and takes up arms against his own empire.
Autodidactdystopia  +   844d ago
My, the tension in these ryse articles since the new trailers is palpable.

one look at the ratio of agrees/disagrees depending on who's complimenting the game, you can see who's upset here.


Im a major pc derp derp and this game looks nuckinfutz.

Only person you are lying to is yourself.

you know who I'm talking to...
NeoTribe  +   844d ago
Trailers don't prove much. You ever watch a awesome movie trailer, just to find out the movie sucks... that's what ryse is going to be more than likely.
GameNameFame  +   844d ago
Kinda silly looking at Cutscene trailer with very little game play to what graphics is like.

But wasnt graphic already downgraded to 900P?7
Gozer  +   844d ago
Ryse is easily the best looking next-gen title so far. All the hate it receives from the sony crowd is a testament to that fact. It looks like the sony loyalist of N4G has already arrived in this article. Why don't you guys stay on your side of the fence? Just cant except the fact that the X1 has the best looking games in Ryse and Forza 5.
JokesOnYou  +   844d ago
Yeah I'm a realest no doubt it will have flaws, last gen off the top of my head MY FAVORITE GAMES like original Mass Effect, Bioshock, COD4, Crackdown, Gears 1&2, God of War 3, Uncharted 2, Alan Wake, Assassin Creed 1&2, Batman AC, Ninja Gaiden 2&3 and even Halo3&4 were ALL FLAWED, hell if a occasional screen tear bothers you good luck enjoying games. Small things like this have never concerned me I just need it to achieve a high level of quality in gameplay where its not anything annoying, quality story, quality graphics, and overall quality production value and I'm my standards are so low zoomed in screenshots of a few missing pixels, blade of grass, funky shadow doesnt make me wish I never paid for the game, ssshhh I know shocking isn't it?

Is it juist me or does the new build does look miles better than the old build.
awesomeperson  +   844d ago
Nope, it certainly does.

Crytek have done an amazing job, graphically. I for one am not buying an Xbox One, but Ryse looks to me as one of the most graphically impressive games at launch of either console.

The environment's aren't anything special, but the character models are all very lifelike. I think what really helps the game is the facial animation - really brings it to life.

If we're getting results like these this early in the generation, it bodes well for the next 5 or so years.

EDIT: Oh, but I am still highly dubious of the gameplay surrounding Ryse. I don't believe it's really up to standard, from the impressions I've heard.

I think it'll be a showcase of graphics for Xbox, but nothing really more.

Nope. E3 build had better textures and polycounts.
awesomeperson  +   844d ago
I still think as a whole this build looks more impressive. Could be the lighting?

I understand it's likely carefully picked segments of the game which look the best - but give credit where credit is due.

I also think being 900p (versus 1080p) definitely helped the game reach the standard of graphics we're seeing.

There's a good chance I won't be buying an Xbox for a while (maybe not this gen unless Microsoft radically changes), but I can respect when there's a nice looking game over there.

Don't let fanboyism cloud your judgement as a gamer.
bjmartynhak  +   844d ago
It does, way better now

And it is just one screen tearing before release, who knows if it will be present at launch or how frequent it will appear
NeoTribe  +   844d ago
Looks worse. Less color, more brown and black. They kinda went killzone 2 with it.
MizTv  +   844d ago
Well I give it up to them
They do make very good looking games
PFFT  +   844d ago
It does look better.
Funantic1  +   844d ago
The old build was dark and way less detailed. The new build is vivid.
MorePowerOfGreen  +   844d ago
It's the newest build. We have close communication with the development of this game over on reddit. Yes it looks better as it is a different build from the polygon change build.

Game is almost finished. This article is damage control.

The story trailer build is a bigger jump than the Polygon build was from the E3 build.

Again there is no asset difference between gameplay or cutscene. The only thing that is different between player control gameplay and cutscene, is the CPU takes control of the camera angles and takes over the gameplay gameplay and crafts it into a cutscene.

It looks better because the BW is used to give better lighting, cloth physics and effects. The first on was pushing more polies, but lacked those other details. We get a smoother frame rate here too.
Mystogan  +   844d ago
Lol look at the disagrees. Damn Ponys are all up in here. Why don't you stay on your side and enjoy your knack or octodad whatever and we stay on our side and enjoy our games?

X1 games look amazing and that pisses the ponys off, because there is nothing else that comes close to Forza,Ryse,Blacktusks game or quantum break on the PS4.

Looks like Microsoft Studios are going all out this Gen. All the first party games are looking amazing. Ryse is the only not-first party X1 that looks just as amazing as the first party games.

I consider Remedy first party. They've been with Microsoft for so long Microsoft might as well make it official. Which wouldn't surprise anyone.

@eonjay You have to save a princess by doing a animal impressions in the batmobil. You're right, that's not too clear from the details and trailers we've seen :-)

So where are these other supposed flaws as the title suggests?

One of the 'some flaws' being the supposed screen tearing, I think the other great flaw is the journalistic skills on demonstration.

I love the "we've reached out to penello" line, because obviously it's such an evident issue... Not.

Not sure if MS has one, but one of the things I like about Sony is that they have an engineer team (known as ICE Team) that is specialized in creating the necessary software and tools for developers (mainly first and second parties) to use. I mean if Ryse is going to be published by MS Studios, shouldn't MS insure that the game runs smoothly on the xboxone by aiding Crytek?

Those are some ugly screen tears btw.

"mainly first and second parties"

Yep, that's why PS3 exclusives are always so much more optimized and superior looking when compared with multiplatform games.
Foxgod  +   844d ago
Ms has multiple studio,s that aid other developers.
They also helped capcom with dead rising 3.

Also, Ms has more experience then any other company out there with developing environments, theres a reason that MS their C++ and DirectX are so popular.

Why do sony fans always break out bull arguments to make sony look good...

Also, if you have to slow a game down to actually see a screen tear, then its hardly something to criticize.

There is no pot kettle, its a fact, wheres your counter argument?
Did you forget that MS is a software house, and that visual studio is among the most advanced developing suites?

And that MS its C environment dates back to the starting of home computing and is among the most used?

And since that all is a fact, it automatically means that their arguments are blatantt lies to make sony look good.

@Foxgod: "Why do sony fans always break out bull arguments to make sony look good..."

Except A) It's not a bull argument, it's a fact that Sony has the ICE Team helping out devs and that Sony first party games on the PS3 are superior to multiplatform games and B) jc48573 said he wasn't sure if Microsoft had an equivalent team, meaning he didn't know, meaning he wasn't trying to make Microsoft bad since he didn't know.

What's actually happening is you got butthurt thinking someone was insulting your precious Microsoft and you had to go on a tantrum because of it.

Also, C++ is not Microsoft's. They have a version called Visual C++ but the basic language is not there's as there are other versions such as Intel C++ and C++ wasn't created by Microsoft.

Anonagrog  +   844d ago
It's not just the ICE team involved with that. There's a 'tools & technology' group somewhere else in the U.S., though I don't know much detail on them, and there's Sony's 'Advanced Technology Group' in London looking at a lot of R&D.

Microsoft also have their own 'Xbox Advanced Technology Group' based out of Redmond. They do a similar thing to Sony's teams.

The game looks good, screen-tearing? The better questions is:What on earth happened to the water physics? Looks like Tombraider 1 from the 90ies....with the easy circles around the feet when he steps into the water. The former videos show impressive physics, but they seem to be removed. Also the lighting looks great, but the face of the main character looks less impressive than in the Xbox One event showing. All in all it still remains a great game for Xb1 buyers. Not for me though, because i've seen it all before in God of War 3/Ascension this gen.

Crytek in fact handle the issue of screen tear better than anyone. They have a very clever technique much like Halo Reach and Halo3 before. These games have tearing appearing at the very top of the screen that you need especially keen eyes to spot it. Crytek manages the technique slighty better even than Bungie in this respect

Each of the Crysis games on xbox example this incredibly well

I think it's fair to say Crytek hate screen tear too

This gen has brought with it something truly ugly but I think Crytek can be trusted here

With the exception of Battlefield 4, RsoR is the BEST GAME coming out for Next GEN consoles.

XB1 fans can't have a nice conversation without "Other fanboys" swarming into RsoR threads just to SPEW Hatred, Lies, and Corny Jokes.

So I say "leave RsoR fans alone and go gather in a KZ:Sf article, Oh wait there are NO KZ:SF articles because NO ONE is talking about that Game anymore, It's all about BF4 and RsoR".

November 22nd I'll be enjoying RsoR at my neighbors house (for a little while then it's back to X-Rebirth).
