I'm getting a Goldeneye for N64 vibe from the gameplay vids, which I still consider one of the greatest FPS games I've played. Really excited for Shadow Fall.

Thats what ive been thinking. And that hostage level reminds me of the perfect dark mission where you infiltrate the villa in the port. Looking forward to this is an understatement

It literally seems like the author took a screen shot of a youtube video...

Taking a picture of decompressed video for comparison is laughable..

That what I said LOL! And I got disagrees for describing it as Deus Ex: Shadowfall and Perfect Dark: Shadowfall.
AndrewLB  +   617d ago
Umm... go back and look at the third comparison with the big explosion. It is VERY evident that the lower quality in the new version is NOT due to your unfounded claim that the new pics are "a picture of decompressed video". The new scene looks like CRAP. It's like they darkened much of the game to hide the the much lower texture quality.

Instead of being in denial and while frantically attempting to find anyone other than Sony to blame, you should direct your frustration at those who misrepresented their product in order to increase sales.

Some of you sony fanboys remind me of these Obama-drones who are now so happy to have "affordable" health care, even though they're now paying 2x as much for worse coverage (mine went from $115/mo to $265/mo) and my deductible going from $500 to $2500.

Its hilarious because they keep trying to blame Bush, or Conservatives. lol. Obama owns this trainwreck just like Sony owns this. I wonder who is going to get their heads out of their a$$e$ first, Obama-Drones or Sony-Drones. lol.

It is just a shame it lacks real dedicated servers for multiplayer, and you have to settle for P2P. There is nothing worse than lag!

Killzone Shadow fall disagrees. That game looks better than Ryse and runs at 1080p WITH higher frame rates. That's not to mention how all the other developers are saying the PS4 is more powerful, even former Gears of War developer. No need for damage control Crytek, it is what it is. #50

sony fans love to play down ryse and claim its been downgraded, if they removed polys and made no other improvements then yes thats a downgrade, but they improved texture detail, cloth physics etc, thats called OPTIMIZING! something crytec gets accused of being bad at alot, but in ryse compare pics, it clearly pays off.

Downgrade? I don't think so. The lightning have changed a lot, which you can see in the explosion images I've extracted from the latest story trailer. It's very detailed.

Cueil  +   616d ago
90 percent of the difference is lighting... some of the textures have been changed a bit, but it's nothing really that huge of a difference... technologically anyway... lighting can make or break something though and it's clearly better... though the explosion maybe a can go either way

AndrewLB  +   617d ago
Umm... do you need glasses or something? Because the new pictures are not nearly as sharp, textures are now muddy, and it seems they dumbed down the Ambient Occulsion quality which results shadows having less variation in tone, causing them to look very dark.
IRetrouk  +   617d ago
@ andrew,

Do you realise that the pictures provided are at like 480p ? You cant tell anything from these pics other than the lightng change, the game runs at a higher resolution than these screens can show making it look muddy as you say. Use your brain man.
HighResHero  +   617d ago
The whole point is that it actually looks better in the newer build. Whether or not these images do an adequate job portraying that is another story.

AndrewLB  +   617d ago
No it doesn't. The heavy shadowing is a lower quality ambient occulsion and clearly does a fine job of hiding the lower quality textures from those who don't want to see the truth.


Look at this image I just put together for you as an example. Look at the plant, the subtle shadowing on clothing, and how natural the lighting is on the lower image. The biggest tell is the tonal width in the shadowing. Notice how the old shots have softer edges on the shadows as well? Soft shadows take a ton of graphics power and would be the first thing that would be reduced if devs needed additional FPS.

IRNMUNKEY  +   617d ago
Definite downgrade. Had to lower effects to get 1080p even at 30fps. Why didn't they just make the next gen a bit more expensive and stick a great GPU in instead of an average one? Think everyone would have been happy to wait another year as well
KUV1977  +   617d ago
Could someone please point out what they see as downgrades. I am willing to discuss this but I really can'T see any downgrades... at all.
Funantic1  +   617d ago
It's downgraded for sure. At first Killzone was very detailed, not it looks even darker and saturated but muddied and less detailed. But we all knew this when it was told that Killzone was going to now require less GB to install when at first it was way higher. This may be the reason Sony doesn't want the PS4 reviewed until a day before it releases.
ABeastNamedTariq  +   617d ago

The hell are you saying?

Are you referring to the fact that SF was, at first, a 200+ GB game that was compressed into 40-something?
KUV1977  +   617d ago
Muddied and less detailed could be a result of freakin' 338p Images. Could you please point me to a detail which can objectively be compared instead of the general 'looks worse'?

In one of the pictures there are more particles in the explosion in the newer build but apart from that there really isn't that much qualitative difference in either way visible in these images.
Shake_Zula  +   617d ago
I think people are mistaking quality with brightness. A few things have been scaled down in terms of detail, yes. But, in terms of overall detail, there is quite a bit more implemented. Also, I'd be hard pressed if anyone could say that the new build screenshots look 2D. Although the old build looks shinier, it doesn't give you that sense of depth which I would argue is one of the most important factors in FPS's.
mushroomwig  +   617d ago
You are out of your mind if you think this;


is a downgrade.
Pintheshadows  +   617d ago
Look how much sharper it looks now and the smoke effects and textures are significantly better. Not to mention the lighting has been toned down and looks more natural, you can now clearly make out the buildings lining the wall where as in the original build they were disguised by the lighting. That isn't realistic.

I don't get the gaming community anymore. They see what they want to see as they want to fit it into their agenda. Why a single person who supposedly likes games would have an agenda I have no idea but they do. Fanboyism blinds people. It works on both sides.

This isn't a downgrade.
It looks like they changed the time of day so that it is dusk which is the only thing I really notice. Hardly a downgrade. It looks superb to my eyes.
GTgamer  +   617d ago
They really got me looking hard ashell at these pics to find a downgrade and still cant see it but those explosions on the new build looks amazing more vibrant.
DecoyOctopus  +   617d ago

Cueil  +   616d ago
to be fair you can clearly see that it's unfinished... a untexured building and though they did cut back a little on some of the lighting effects I think that if it was a design decision to hit 1080p30 then that's fine

Sevir  +   617d ago
DOWNGRADE? Im laughing at these xbox fans saying this! Who calls Fod a downgrade for added ambience!?

You know what I call a downgrade. Dropping the poly count from 150K to 85K for all characters, dropping from 1080 30fps to 1600x900/900p to run at 30fps... and this is ALL after overclocks to CPU and GPU to gain "BALANCED" performance, which comes after the fact that RYSE was actually running on a PC that was more powerful than the upspeced Final XBOX ONE, let alone what was announced at the May 21st Event this year.

Quit it already. KZ does more and looks better than RYSE with NO downgrades to game engine and upgrades to hardware needed!
Soc5  +   617d ago
What does Ryse have to do with killzone?
Sevir  +   617d ago
Everything to do with the topic of "downgrade"
Shake_Zula  +   617d ago
It's an interesting instance, this. Here's the thing: it looks downgraded, because more shadowing was added to give a better sense of depth. As pictures, the old build would look better, but this being a moving and dynamic game, the shadows as it does improve quality as in most other games. Look up Ambient Occlusion. All in all, I don't think that screenshots do any of these games justice; if there is to a comparison, it should video clips of the game. Either way, I can't wait to play.

And also concerning Ryse, we as a gaming community need to stop trying to raise an axe to comparably similar games. Ryse is, by no matter of opinion, a completely different type of game; from a technical standpoint, there is nothing that it has in similarity to KZ. If you want to compare KZ for fanboys-sake, compare it to another shooter like CoD of BF4.

Oh, and (last thing, I promise) the term "downgrade" seems to be a hot word at the moment, but you also have to realize that optimization is selective downgrades that allow higher priority upgrades. It's a balancing act in many cases.

Here, try this. Load the two photos before the explosion into photoshop and compare the histograms. Then perhaps to a real photo's histogram with afternoon lighting. The earlier images are FAR more accurate color and tonal representations.

Hicken  +   617d ago
There aren't any textures missing. There's a lack of visibility of certain details due to that huge ass explosion. Such a massive light source would naturally obscure details of other things, so that they appear as little more than silhouettes.

Dunno why I'm bothering, but this crap is pathetic. There's no downgrade at all. In every picture, the level of increased detail is noticeable. The new build has darker images, but more textures and richer colors.

Give it a rest, people.

P.s i know that Xbox One fans are extremely hurt right now after having to suffer all the announcements of downgraded Xbox One games. As a result they are all posting about downgrades with Shadow Fall when the truth is that the game looks better than before. You people have to accept that the PS4 is more capable than the Xbox One and you should just enjoy your exclusives like Ryse, Dead Rising and Halo 5 for example. In the end we buy consoles to play games right?

Where is all these announcements of downgraded Xbox One games? All I have seen is rumors from unreliable sources.

There has been more bad news about the PS4 than the Xbox One the past few weeks, just look at the articles today as an example. The truth is coming out the closer we get to launch, Sony can't hide behind rumors anymore.

If there was a Ryse build comparison in thumbnails Sony fans would claim downgrade.

MasterCornholio  +   617d ago
Well the most important downgrades are,

1. Ryse from 1080P to 900P
2. Battlefield 4 from 1080P to 720P or 900P
3. Call of Duty Ghosts from 1080P to 720P (Sony rep confirmed 1080P but Microsoft refuses to answer)
4. Crimson Dragon from 1080P to 720P
5. Dead Rising from 1080P to dynamic resolution.

And that's all that I can think of.

P.S I don't know whether to consider Deep Down a downgrade on the PS4 because I don't know if the first trailer was CGI or it was rendered in real time on a high end PC.

When did I say Ryse wasn't downgraded? There was a resolution downgrade and a polycount (still more then KZ).

Looking at the comparison of KZ builds there seems to be downgrades to the textures, lighting, shadows and reflections.

How is this a rumor when you can see the downgrades in screenshots?

Battlefield 4 and Ghosts resolutions on the Xbox One are rumors, not confirmed. The truth will come out as we get closer to launch date.

RYSE is a walking book of downgrades...

1080p 60fps to 900p 30fps,
a drop from 150k polygons to 85k polygons,

Do we need to call in Dead Rising 3, and a few other games?

Killzone got an upgrade, they went from 1080p 30fps in single player to a variable 60 that NEVER dips below 30 for single player and went up to 1080p 60fps on multiplayer.

All this with a 4x jump in texture resolutions more physics, particle effects and volumetric Fog along with Raytraced and dynamic lighting.

old build running on a high end PC which acts as a dev environment
results in higher quality textures, reflections, more diffuse shadows, wider variety of environmental colors and better lighting across the scene
also results in more characters on screen, higher polygon assets in use
also results in lesser use of bloom, soft particles with collision, soft particles for smoke, larger radius for light effects and more realistic portrayal of light bounce
also results in higher soft particle count for smoke in all explosions
also results in ambient occlusion and anisotrophic filtering and high quality anti-aliasing solutions

new build results in GUI
results in lower soft particles for smoke, excessive use of bloom, very low reflectivity off of material surfaces, lower polycount assets in the scene, very stark contrasts with lighting resulting in very dark sections and where natural lighting shouldn't cause such dark areas to show up
no AA, no AF, no AO
low character model count on screen
lighting is now very much bloom dependent and thus feels closer to lighting that's prevalent on the 360 and PS3 towards the end of their generation due to a lack of hardware power to render
Sevir  +   617d ago
The OLD Build was running on Prototype PS4 DEVKITS with Half the Memory of the final devkits with only 5 of the 8 CPU cores available... Its in their February Demo Post mortem, PLEASE GTFO with the BS, there is NO downgrade, EVEN in the lastest developer interview from the GT episode last week tells that they they ran that demo on OLD devkits and it wasn't until 2 days before the PS4 announcement that they received near final Devkits!

This is far sharper. The first builds lighting gives it a horribly blurry appearance in comparison. The lighting here is softer and the textures are far sharper. Also notice the hugely improved particle effects, detail added to the environments, improved shadows, and richer colours (look at the VSA entrance shot around the doors, the glass looks far better now. I'm impressed.

I'm amused that so many on here are claiming this is a downgrade but not one of them can actually point out what has been downgraded. I wonder why that is.

You have to be blind not to realize the downgrade. The better animated explosion doesn't justify a huge loss in detail. Also, can someone explain how supposed 4x better textures equates to the completely flat and undefined ground seen here as well as a smaller install requirement.


"The intensity of the light from the explosion reflecting off all the surfaces look more realistic in new build. Even the structure has light reflectin off of it in new build. New build 5 points. "

How can you look at the image above and claim that there are better reflections? Maybe the globe structure has less light bouncing off, but everything else is washed out like crazy. Even the character polys look lower. Most of your other claims are way off too. Look at the ears and hair on the girl model as well as the textures on her clothing. If these screens were bigger it would be night and day. Get your eyes checked son.

After all these are the same guys who claimed KZ2 trailer was in-engine footage.

The thing is p3ter the textures from that gif are obscured by the explosions beautiful lighting effects. In the previous picture which is the same scene with no explosion they are present and sharper than in the original build. The glass textures on the skyscrapers are also far superior to the previous build as is the shadowing and the richness of the colours.

I think your tone is off as well. 'Get your eyes checked son.' Is that necessary or are you not mature enough enough to have a discussion without resorting to name calling. It seems not.

Plus, I played the multiplayer at Eurogamer, and I tell you what, this game has no concerns when it comes to visuals.

It is eye melting. I think the recent gameplay videos prove that. It hasn't been downgraded. It has been vastly improved. I would of thought that was obvious from the comparisons between the two sets of forest footage we have seen, one from E3, one from a week or so ago.
Yo Mama  +   617d ago
I'm one of the biggest PlayStation fanboys here but I'm not sure I like the changes. I feel as though they should have left well enough alone. I liken Guerrilla Games to an artist who keeps painting and making small changes well after perfection, until it's actually a hindrance. A few brush strokes too many, if you will.

With that being said, It's still looking great and I'm sure I won't be able to tell or even care while I'm playing.

Anyways, the revamped lighting really adds a lot to the new build. I won't ever call this a downgrade, it is a visible improvement. But again, we really need a 1080p comparison to actually spot any visible difference =/

I can't see how anyone would see this as an upgrade...could someone tell me what to look for here?
ATi_Elite  +   617d ago
You are being a Realist and NOT a FANBOY which is a GOOD thing and a RARITY on N4G.

This is NOT an upgrade. You saw with your very OWN eyes the difference between OLD and NEW. GG has to downgrade things to get KZ:SF to run at 1080p 60fps MP and 1080p 30 to 60 fps SP

This is a DOWNGRADE because there is a BIG difference when it comes to KZ running on a PC/Devkit versus KZ running on a Consumer Level PS4.

anyway Guerrilla Games has done an excellent Job and KZ still looks good just not as good as what we saw running on a Devkit.

I can't wait to see the amount of RAGE DISAGREES I get for this post.

I await a torrent of dislikes but to me I prefer the older images. Slightly brighter, more details on the buildings and characters and just overall a much better looking game. A good example to look for is in the first picture of the new build, just to the right of the jet engine is a grey blocky building. Now go back and look at the old build, far more detail.

However this could all change when we actually see the game in motion, some things don't translate too well through images.

a perfect example of how the lighting has not in "upgraded"

there has definitely been a downgrade in visuals, how can you people not see it? Some of the reflections are gone and textures aren't as sharp as the original demo in Feb.

Haven't you heard, these are UPGRADES!!!! (sarcastic: YaaaaaaaaY)

Is it me or only the xbox fanboys (in a PS4 article mind you) are saying there's a downgrade?
LordHiggens  +   617d ago
No...look at my comment up there. It's a downgrade...

Full PS4 preorder here!

It's not a downgrade, though. You, and many others, have merely jumped on a bandwagon (and your claims of a PS4 pre-order are meaningless, as there's no way to prove it at all).

No matter how much you convince yourself that you're not full of it, doesn't change that you are full of it.

Nope, your trolling is pathetic, but you're thankfully out of bubbles.

What I really like about the new build is that the colours are really vibrant. This is clearly an aesthetic choice that really lends itself to the design & concept of the game.
