"Earlier this week Kojima revealed his next project, Silent Hills. The game is under development at Kojima productions, along with collaboration from Guillermo del Toro."
And to think, Kojima announced they intentionally lowered the quality of the FOX Engine in attempt to throw people off and give it more of an 'indie' look. Genius.
The lighting is especially good. Crazy to know that the graphics were intentionally downgraded. The final game should look amazing if the demo is anything to go by. https://pbs.twimg.com/media... https://pbs.twimg.com/media... https://pbs.twimg.com/media... I didn't want to sleep tonight, anyway.
Damn, that looks scary..... and awesome.
Damn teaser got me. I actually yelled out on the 1st pop. Even knew it was coming.
1) Played this with my headset on and lights off. My girl had to come check on me a few times because I, um, well... I screamed like a girl on more than one occasion. 2) I agree about the lighting, it was awesome. However, I thought the aliasing was average at best. Saw a good deal of flicker/shimmer on picture frames for example. Thoughts? Is that part of the intended downgrade? I'm sure it'll be fixed in the final game but it definitely stood out to me.
Here I am trying to sleep in a dark room, and I look at pictures of this game...
@GW12 Kojima did say that the demo was intentionally downgraded in terms of graphics, so it would make sense to assume the final game won't have as much aliasing ans shimmering.
FOX ENGINE has mgs run at 1080p 60fps with one of the most realistic graphics and a massive open world. imagine what its capable of when it renders one room at a time
Scaries F'ing game (actually not even a game yet!) that I have ever played. Way scarier than Outlast, and that game freaked me out!
It looks miles betetr than MGS5 because the latter is a cross-gen title and in all versions they use the same assets and last-gen techs (Kojima even confirmed didin't use even tesselation on any version even PS4 for parity), while Silent Hills is a full fledged current-gen game (and from what to be expected it may be a PS4 exclusive since it uses PS4 and Dualshock 4 features for gameplay and scare). At Lukas: The ligthing is not realistic at all in this game , too much post-processing and other exagerated effects unlike other gamess i.e MGS5, but it doesn't mean it is bad, on the contrary, it was on purpose and the lighting itself such as it is seems sick and serves the game plot. At GW12 : There are even intentitional screen tearing for scare purposes too.
Fox engine is definitely a looker. If ground zeroes is anything to go by then MGSV:TPP and Silent Hills will be amazing looking games
Don't know if i've played any other games using the FOX engine but Ground Zeroes wasn't that pretty to me graphics wise, in my opinion of course, but P.T. was gorgeous, took me a bit to realize it was a game when I was watching the video at IGN.
I was astonished at the graphics of this game, I first watched the guys at IGN play it while I was at work and kept thinking, is this a game they're playing or are they just putting commentary on a video, until I realized it was that P.T. game I quickly dl'ed on my PS4 and never touched. So after I got off work and got home around 10:30pm I told my wife, hey you gotta take a look at the graphics in this game, needless to say even though I knew what to expect from watching the video earlier it still creeped me the hell out, her even more, sitting on the bed with a pillow over her eyes, priceless. If the final product is anything near the P.T. graphics wise, it will definitely be one of if not THE best looking game on PS4.
Fox Engine is just beautiful, too bad I don't get to play around with it when I take classes in college, only Unreal Engine 3 :(
They have you guys on Unreal 3? We're working with Unity. I've heard it's an easy transition to Unreal 4.
honestly, I just said Unreal 3 because I saw the Unreal 3 textbook in my professor's office. Maybe they provided more engines but it's been a while since I checked.
Hey Etack, quickly start learning UE4, UE5 is almost out (we are at 4.4 now and 4.5 will be out soon). UE4 is the closest engine you can get to Fox Engine.
It's definitely gorgeous. Some parts look almost real. Some look good enough. As a whole, it's one of the best looking games on any platform.
Im just flabbergasted at this whole p.t/silent hill thing, pure genius and the reception has been phenomenal, i think its safe to say silent hill is back. In a big way.
its hard to call this a graphical shopiece, theres hardly anything to render outside the hallway, like kojima said, it was intentionally downgraded. not to say it didnt look great though, it did, but id imagine that were really going to see fox engine shine when the full game releases.
But this is the thing people on here don't get about graphics. It's not the Rez, it's not the fps, it's not even how many things are being rendered of how big etc. This game nailed some of the next gen stuff I was talking about. The full use of hdr lighting, excellent ssao, lens blur, film blur, depth blur, motion blur, chromatics,caustics, ray tracing etc and then high res textures. This teaser looked freaking real at times so to me this absolutely a showpiece. If this is a downgrade from the full game then I'm sure I will be blown away at launch.
one thing i particularly dont like is the damn rainbow at the shadows edge. hate that effect. but i agree with most of what you said.
Holy crap the teaser was freaking tense. This is the most creeped out a video game has ever made me. Well done.
.. And Xbox One for that matter.....
Well we haven't seen the Xbox One version so we really can't say anything about it. P.S I know the PT is exclusive to the PS4 but the actual game is still coming to Xbox One.
This is the dumbest article on this site right now. Its nothing but a damn corridor fool! It has to be HYPER realistic. Would you stop with the hyperbole. Lets wait until the real game to make those kinds of declarations...cause they was plenty of stuff that didn't hold up to scrutiny on my 80 inch screen.
"Its nothing but a damn corridor fool!" Isn't that what the majority of Silent Hill games are like? As far as I know they don't take place in massive openworlds which means the developers have more resources to work with. Sounds like your just mad that they released the PT for PS4.
No Silent Hill games arent first person and their has always been a fair amount of exploration of the town. More like a sandbox then a corridor.
Not really, they seem to be pretty expansive to me. I mean P.T. Is literally a corridor with very little else to be taken into consideration. Bearing that in mind the graphics should be mind blowing. The contrast is startling when you see the trailer for Silent Hills and see the town, protagonist shoes, his face, more color palette much more to consider and that looks more like a CGI than in game engine. But the other Silent Hill games although confined (and I think this had to do more with technological issues) where pretty open. They made good use of what they had. Fog, shadows and such.
All the Silent Hill games take place in huge parts of the town. Even the first one. The way they dealt with technological shortcomings was to make everything dark and to reveal it using a flashlight. Basically the original, classic Silent Hill flashlight mechanic was created simply because they couldn't render much of the town. But all the levels have been pretty big. Still claustrophobic and creepy, but big!
It will look amazing its 1 corridor a bathroom and a basement type room, all the power can be devoted to 1 small space. Did enjoy my play through tho my younger brother left the room just from her closing bathroom door on you.
I dont have a PS4, so I couldnt play the teaser, saw it on youtube. My first reaction was "What a good video... hey, wait, it's the gameplay?". Looks amazing, really, even if I know there are no enemies or major stress processing it.
Good, that's good.
Am I the only one that feels like the Walking Dead guy ruins immersion?
....Seriously? I can think of a number of games that look more 'realistic' than the P.T. Killzone, Infamous, and even TLOU:R look better. That's not to say the actual game won't look amazing, but the demo isn't anything to be wowed at.
youve got to be on crack
