3 high resolution images have been found for Resistance 2.
Just direct feed shots from the footage shown at the show. Still clearly shows those off screen videos aren't doing the game justice, even in its early build. Direct feed footage please :)
I love the diversity too. So you aren't stuck in some dark cavern all the time.
Sorry that i was unable to find a video. All videos have most likely already been added to n4g and thus making it old.
@cviper i love those screen but the lighting isnt even in the same league as kz2's lightmodel sorry, kz2 deffered render method and lightscattring technology is out of league of any current engine.
Watch the 5 minute presentation video of the guy at insomniac going over mutliplayer. Not the 50x50 pixel youtube movie going around the net. The lighting model is closer than it is not. GG/NaughtDog/Insomniac all share technology. Its one of the main reasons its taking Killzone2 so long. Considering Uncharted's streaming method lived in Killzone2 first.. Its pretty safe to think they are passing along notes for lighting. Good lighting is good for everyone
now we can laugh at those people who said the graphics are crap??? (because u can tell so by a a gameplay trailer thats like 100x50 pixels) this looks amazing
cviper yes you can there are enough tech documents about kz2 and insomniacs inhouse engine. Both are great but r2 doesnt match kz2's realtime lighting engine by far.
You are quite correct to suggest that the Developers do indeed share technology and techniques, and you are correct to say that the lighting for this title looks good. You are however, quite wrong to suggest that the lighting model used is of the order of complexity of KZ2's engine. The techniques and advanced lighting that are done in KZ2's engine, are much discussed amoung dev's as it is by far an away the most complex lighting model ever used for a real time game. The information is widely avialble for those with the ability to digest it, do check it out if you are genuinely interested, its an exciting engine! Insomaniac are doing a great job, but they would be the first to tell you they are not trying impliment a lighting model thats as advanced as KZ2's. They are spending their SPU power elsewhere, and I'm quite confident they will deliver a great game.
first, the video wasn't making to the game justice, now the screenshots aren't making justices either. get over it, the game really looks like that.
Look like what? Great? This is a pre-beta build, it's not finished and your grading its visuals. Ah I guess your just venting now Offset Is PC only ;)
Mot bad at all. Looks like a graphical upgrade from R1 plus some color
Resistance 2's multiplayer video has good lighting. The still images do not do the lighting model justice, which I was merely pointing out to begin with. I am 100% sure that the KZ2 lighting engine is very advanced.Its obvious to anyone that watches it in motion. However looking at the stills you cant really see all of the processing going on. I almost died when I saw the stills of KZ2 because they looked lacking, after I saw the video.. I almost had a heart attack due to shock and awe. I had a feeling you guys were judging the lighting based on these MEH stills. You guys are getting confused here thinking that I said the Resistance lighting matches. I only said its closer than it is not, and again. You would have to see the higher resolution video of the forest to see how great it is. Its still pretty impressive.
I may be wrong about this, but it almost seems that KZ2, R2, and M:PR are all using very similar lighting engines, i.e. all three games have absolutely fantastic lighting!
you are wrong they use 2 totally different lightmodels and kz2's is by far the best to date. you are right both look awesome :D
M:PR -> Motorstorm: Pacific Rift
They all have different engines. Insomniac has its own engine, GG its own developed for what KZ2 needed, and same goes for motorstorm. Sony is not MS to buy Unreal Engine 3 licence and use it for 80% of its "exclusives" (GeOW 2, Bioshock, Crackdown, Mass Effect, etc.). So you wont see Sony games having same plastic wet look. Even though Sony has its own engine and tools but it is not limited and over used. You mention amazing lightning? Well this is PS3 bro, only getting in its second year and games look amazing already. By January 09 it is all over, and than comes final blow KZ2 in feb and God of War 3 in March.
link wont work!?
the link works fine
it does now. but where is the highres stuff!?
Except R2 is a real game and Alan Wake is looking like vaporware.
Lots of detail and the light being filtered through the branches adds a lot of atmosphere. Looking forward to all of the environments that we'll get to play through in R2.
i heard that Resistance 3 is going to be set in australia.
i have no idea
I'd like to hear your source on that :P It could be interesting though, nice to see buildings I know in a game for once ;D
Swear Australia hadn't even been invented at the time Resistance was set j/k
R2 use deferred rendering just like KZ2, which could lead to why the game lighting looks similar. http://www.insomniacgames.c...
At this point seems that R2 & KZ2 look very similar, with the exception that R2 is much more multiplayer oriented and KZ2 more single story oriented…. Any way, look at this: http://it.youtube.com/watch... http://it.youtube.com/watch... Let me say that I am quite disappointed by the overall quality (look) of these two titles… considering that they will be released respectively 1 year and 1 year and half later COD4…!!! In the last weeks I have start to ask myself where Sony want to go with my PS3... I hoped to have some clues with the Gamer Day but it has only strength my doubts… Ah, I am not a fanboy… I am a PS3 owner that has bought this expensive device primarily for playing great games…
If u arent impressed with these 2 games then u really dont own a ps3, because these 2 games look amazing and these are R2 multiplayer shots and still looks good.
he just been honest. i see his point. this game looks average, cod4 doesn't.
fablib, i've seen you doing this on other threads. No, you're not just a fanboy, you're a troll pretending to be your average ps3 user. You don't have a ps3, i can tell you that straight off. And Killzone 2 is disappointing you is it?? Looks graphically like COD4? Get out. Any person with sense will look at Killzone 2 in a HD video and say its easily the best looking console game ever. That game is using so many techniques that make the game look so freaking real....you're not even worth explaning to actually, just watch a direct feed HD video of Killzone 2, and shut up
fablib didn't make a single point. and you haven't either. both of you come off as 360 fanboys. when you do have some valid points to make, i'll listen, but right now you seem very foolish.
Shadow Flare, I actually have a PS3. Do not get me wrong, KZ2 looks very very good, but very similar to COD4 with the difference that it will be released ONE YEAR AND HALF later than COD4… I cannot forget that KZ2 was meant to represent the best my PS3 could do… and I am under the strong feeling that when KZ2 will be released that level of graphic will not be so groundbreaking! Look at the last FarCry 2 video released… Now, this title seems really groundbreaking!!! I just used to be a little bit angry (to use a euphemism) with Sony… I remember the CGI movie for Kill Zone 2, I remember the CGI movie x Motorstorm, I remember the CGI movie x MGS4… In my life when I bought something that do not fully satisfied me I used to complaint it and communicate it to my friend/dear.. I do not see why I have to be defined as a “troll” just because I fell disappointed by the PS3! Here every PS3 owner seems to be under some “WOW effect” every time the big S release something. Well, I cannot say WOW when I have paid for GT Proluge: a wonderful demo! I cannot say WOW when I learn that Home has been delayed again! I cannot say WOW when I see the “in-game graphic” of MGS4 (I am very afraid we will talk about this in the next future) I cannot say WOW when I play with MGSonline I cannot say WOW when I still do not know when (and if) the next GT, Final Fantasy and GOW will be released I cannot say WOW when GTA4 is not properly playable online (well at least I was one of the lucky that do not have the definitive freezing problem..) I cannot say WOW when my console suddenly freeze during watching BR or during a match I cannot say WOW when multiplatform title look and play better on other consoles I cannot say WOW when I am OBLIGED to install all the new game released I cannot say WOW of all the lies Sony has told me (almighty Cell, all the developers’ faults, all the CGI movies, the huge number of delays…) And certainly I cannot say WOW when I see the graphic of exclusive titles such us Haze, R2, Motorstorm2 or KZ2 that should be the flagships of an almighty console!
your act is so fake fablib. You're a troll and thats all there is. May i ask, what on Xbox 360 makes you go 'wow'? lol FAIL
Ok, sorry I thought you were an adult…I was wrong evidently… Oh yes, you have catch me boy! I am a thirty years old Xbox360 fanboy! I own a PS3 but it was a mistake! In reality, I deeply love Microsoft, Bill Gates and Xbox Brand in general… I have bought a PS3 because I am a masochist! Well, I am an Xbox360 fanboy masochist! Are you happy now? Boys let’s try to level up a bit this forum ok?
i think you just did level up fablib It's the pure fact that nothing on ps3 seems to make you go wow, that just makes you stink of being an xbox fanboy GT5P, the best graphics to date on a console MGO is actually wicked, tactical, and a superb online game Killzone 2 is in a league of its own... and if things like that don't slightly impress you, then you're branded an xbox zealot. Seriously WHAT on xbox 360 coming up is making your jaw drop? Bear in mind that im not gonna bother replying back to you because a) you're a troll b) you don't have a ps3 c) you're a troll and d) i laugh at people like you because you've probably missed a ton of classic games in the past, purely down to your fanboyish tunnel-visioned attitude. Its a shame, but thats the kind of person i imagine you to be. Seriously, don't buy Killzone 2, or MGS4, or GT5 if you think xbox 360 has better things to offer. Cos i'll be enjoying them, while you sit with your red ring machine still thinking you made the right choice. Bye
If nothing on the system satisfies you sell it and stick to PC and/or 360, it's not that hard to figure out. I don't see the point of having the system if you're completely disappointed by it, unless you're holding onto it as a Blu-Ray player.
They show off just how quickly Insomniac has imporved greatly on an already great game engine. In such a short time they have made this franchise look much better. I am definitely looking forward to this when it comes out.
another SD game? don't look hirez to me.
What type moron goes by how a screen shot looks like? oh wait you do. If I went by screen shots I would of never of bought kameo
The environmental lighting is nice, but I'm not so sure about the character models.
The character models aren't bad but they're also not amazing and a little generic, at least from these scans. The Chimera, on the other hand, look awesome in other scans I've seen. The gun in the second shot look pretty cool though.
Well be aware that the game is no-where near finished....and these screens are from the Multiplayer..not SP campaign ....
I'm glad R2 will have a broader colour palette than the first, can't wait to see this bad boy running its final code in 60fps.
No i understand why valve doesn't care about ps3. Because they cannot compete with kz2 and rfom2. Play beyond.
I guess Sony is doing that so stop the lieing you crap! and plus you guys are only getting Unreal Engine 3 games so whats so special about that atleast the console the PS3 fans always uses priority engines and not the same ones
I love the scale of the war Resistance and Killzone set - EPIC WARFARE
I cant wait to see this game running at 60 fps. IT'S GONNA BE BIG!
Can say WOW about you mate WOW you're a right DH! Rob.
Later on this year, the graphics are just gona keep improving :) .
To all of you guys busting on Resistance 2's visuals: Insomniac said themselves that they are building the game first and then worrying about improving graphics later. They still have 6 months.
The trees in particular look amazing. Guaranteed purchase.
Yeah! Graphics will improve as much as Killzone 2 did from E3 2005 a whole lot. Sony is just dropping bombs on these fools! All Xbots and Wii-nies beware!
