Modded Alien: Isolation screenshots show the best looking interiors ever created in a game

The Creative Assembly used a 3TB image archive of original Alien concept art and photos from 20th Century Fox when they created Alien: Isolation. And it shows.

Now that is how pc games should look!!

That IS how PC games look. The mod doesn't change the games visuals at all. All it does is some color correction on the final rendered image. You can achieve similar results using the hidden settings in the nvidia CP. SweetFX just makes using those settings easy.

I'm still in my first 6 months of PC gaming, how do you enable SweetFX?

Alien Isolation is a bit of a looker (is this a good term ?). Now, it's starting to look virtual.WoW

Modders never cease to amaze.

Can you imagine if they still made exclusive AAA PC shooters or actually developed with cutting edge hardware in mind and then consoles? They would look scary life like. I wish we could get another one that did what Crysis1 did for so long.

Well even Crytek turned into multiplatform devs eventually. Seems like the console market is too important to miss out on for AAA productions nowadays unless you go the kickstarter route and manage to get a huge budget like Star Citizen did.

Well, it's simply that AAA game development is so expensive and they need to put their games on as many platforms as possible. That's why the PC gets so many AAA 3rd party games that used to be exclusive to the consoles. I'd say the PC has benefited more than be hurt by these changes.

Yeah that's true, I understand that. It would be foolish with the costs now days to not make your games multi plat, unless you are of course a first party studio. I think I worded my earlier statement wrong. I didn't mean games shouldn't also come out on console, I'm saying when games were PC exclusive they were always raising the bar. It should be PC first, then consoles. Not in an elitist way like it's all about master race hurr durr or anything negative, but to continue the advancement of graphics, physics and other immersion factors by taking advantage of current hardware; and then scaling consoles set hardware to get as close to it as possible. The differences should not be so minimal that it's just a higher res and a few extra particles and maybe steadier frames. The hardware is capable of so much more and people dish out more cash for that experience, they should strive to push each system to it's limits with each iteration. These screenshots are just one of many examples of how they continue to show that they haven't pushed, at least in the PC space. And while the PC may not sell as much as it's console cousins for certain games, it's still a good market that been on a steady increase for years across the board. By not pushing PC hardware and staying on a current set hardware for years routine, progress turns into stagnation. I wish to load up a game again and go "HOLY CRAP!" instead of "Oh, that's nice. Looks a bit cleaner." I mean that's just my 2 cents on it. Some people are perfectly content as is.

Star Citizen seems to be the only one going for that trophy, considering Witcher 3 was stricken by the multi-platform curse. Other than that, i doubt we'll ever see another Crysis.

Keep those fingers crossed for the new unreal tournament!

FastRedPonyCar1145d ago

Check out the youtube videos of starcitizen's FPS footage. It's incredible and looks like a modded crysis 3.

Roccetarius1145d ago (Edited 1145d ago )

Yeah, it does indeed look great. And i'm also waiting for Unreal Tournament, like you said. Hopefully Instagib will be getting some love as well.

Why do I get the feeling while looking at these images that we're getting closer and closer to the day when AI plants all of us into a simulated reality in order to utilize our bodies as energy sources?
