PS4 action-RPG Horizon: Zero Dawn will run at 1080p/30fps and is being developed on a modified version of the Killzone: Shadow Fall engine, Guerrilla has confirmed.
This game was the best looking new game i saw at E3 and i cant wait to play it
Im an Xbox Fan and I totally agree, game is Gorgeous!
I too am an Xbox fan and I'm right there with you. This may be the game that gets me to buy a ps4.
Game of the show for me
@Nirvana31591 Graphically I think is Game of the show, but as a whole IMO I think Uncharted 4/ Deus Ex / Battlefront looked better.
Yeah at first glance I could easily tell it was using the killzone shadow fall engine. Looks great considering how much more work it is for them to detail and animate robot dinosaurs in an open world game!
@tuglu When that guy from EA said that with their next game would make us doubt what we saw was reality or the game I was like, yeah right EA... But when the NFS trailer finished I was like, shit what did I just see?? The transition from that mechanic-dude and his girlfriend to the car in-game and straight up customization was mind blowing. For me NFS was more mind-blowing than Horizon at first glance. That said, I realize that making a linear FPS engine to an open world one and producing results like what we saw with Horizon is 10 times the achievement of making a good looking arcade racing game instead. Horizon and Uncharted were the best looking games of the show, by far. Battlefront and Deus EX indeed looked phenomenal as did Gears and Forza. I'm getting a bit of topic here but I'm starting to get amazed by the graphical jump this gen. We have really started to see significant gains from the 1st gen games we got at launch and games are quickly becoming super realistic. I guess those puny AMD GPUs are not so puny afterall! Damn I never thought I'd say this, but we in for a treat this gen.
Cant wait.This game just had that "Holy sh*t"moment every second I was watching.Cant wait to see how Co op will be implemented (Assuming its in there)Cuz everything Shinobi had leaked has been right on the money.
I've read something that said it is a strictly single player open world RPG, from an interview they did this week.
Maybe they have non story coop like monster or bounty hunting. I have no idea just throwing it out there.
I want this now
Any ideas when this is coming out? Looks amazing
"They're targetting 2016" so expect November at the earliest. :S Plenty of games to play though.
I just really want this game, plain and simple
Excellent. Any word on co-op? I don't need it, but I love playing co-op with my brother.
Hope so too. Have been playing dying light and diablo with my wife(2 ps4s guess I'm a little spoiled) great fun.
Co-op would be spectacular in this game of hunting robot dinosaurs. I'm sure the makers of Killzone will have some sort of online play. If they don't then that will seriously be disappointing.
WRPGs like Fallout & Witcher are single player only and they sell like crazy
@ NewMonday Okay...?? Why are we discussing sales? I think this game would be amazing having a group of friends roaming the plains hunting huge dinobots.
Prepare to be disappointed then! Confirmed SP only and thats a good thing. And for your question to NewMonday I believe he was trying to say RPG/SP games' devs don't need to waste resources and time to throw a worthless and un-needed multiplayer to make sure there game sells well, for example (not rpg but) Tomb Raider.
Its beauty like this that the word awesome was created for. The concept is totally fresh,the world already has my anticipation
Downgrade! jk This game definitely looks cool. I hope the world is as expansive as it appears to be.
I wish it would get a downgrade to get 60 FPS.
Oh really ? I don't care about frame.
fps makes a big difference!
"I wish it would get a downgrade to get 60 FPS." I don't. Looks plenty smooth to me.
Koolaid251 Yeah, but 30fps isnt bad either, especially for a 3rd person game. As long is locked at 30fps.
Especially a single player, open world, third-person, stealth-driven, RPG. The action is this game isn't "twitchy" enough to justify needing to be 60FPS - run it at 30 FPS and boost the visual appeal of the game. Yes at times there can be a good bit going on, but since it is third person and the camera isn't moving super fast (like it would in first person) higher frame rates' benefits are just lost because there is no chance for them to really be used/noticed. First-person shooters, especially fast paced ones, almost always demand 60FPS. Again, the camera is moving faster in these views demanding higher frame rates to avoid dropping every precious frame of information. In reality as long as a game is locked to 30 FPS or 60 FPS, it doesn't really matter, though fast paced again will be better locked to 60 FPS. The reason you don't want to drop below those thresholds is because monitors and HD televisions "refresh" at rates that are multiples of 60 (60 Hz, 120 Hz, 240 Hz) - so long as your "locked" frame-rate divides equally into those refresh rates you have less dropped frames and less flicker.
Looking forward to seeing more, so far it looks like being a great game.
Definitely my game of E3
This game easily shot to my second most anticipated game on PS4...it looks sweet Edit: @Pandab UC4
What's your first?
Sorry my disagree was a touchscreen accident
This game looks beautiful. I haven't played Killzone as I'm not in to FPS but this definitely looks like something I'd be in to! I'm glad that GG decided to work on a new IP :D
I can believe the upgraded engine easily--vegetation (lighting on it and such) is eerily similar to me and metals act much the same as in K:SF. I don't mind though as I loved the way it looked at launch and any upgrades are welcome. The concept alone has me excited and graphics are great too.
I can't wait until this game releases!!.. but is it me or was Xbox getting a lot of flack about it's "inability" to produce games at 1080p 60fps? Now PS has announced two great looking games that are 1080p 30fps... but no one seems to really care.. I'm an Xbox guy... so I'm just trying to figure out where the hate for Xbox comes from.. I was joking with a friend and he brought up the fact of the original Xbox having better graphics than PS when it came out.. Ever since then Sony has been dumping everything into it's graphics. lol I thought that was pretty funny.. (joke was told in fake American/Japanese accents)
It was because of the 1080p situation. No one buys a TV or watches videos in 720p or 900p by choice when the option for 1080p is there. People make a big deal about it because both PS and Xbox gamers pay the same price for games that are optimized differently. It just so happens that the PS version of some games is usually higher than the Xbox version.
You totally missed the point he was making,he was asking why was it cool for ps2 to have ugly textures and dialed back graphics compared to xbox but now in the present it's a big deal over pixels when Sony had the edge. To answer your question Space Ranger it's because Their fuccing fanboys
The crazy thing about that is that some multi platform games run better on the xbox1 at it's lower resolution than the ps4 at it's higher resolution.
It's human nature for some people to pick sides- be it sport, politics, videogames or whatever. Their side is perfect, the other side is plain awful. That's where the hate comes from.
Xbone gets flack because it can't do 1080p. Simple. What the hell is 900p? Someone needs to go back 5 years and bring Microsoft into 2015.
Wtf is 30fps I thought ps4 was powerful is that all its capable of you can bet your donkey it will drop frames to the 20's
Ur reply is what gets things rattled up no one brought it up but u. Xbox is having issues with game not reaching 1080p like call of duty games . ps4 hits 1080p 60fps on some games while xbox struggles and hits 900p or 720p. Not all games will be 60fps some are not needed but shooters like cod is best at 60fps. So now u brought it up I can tell u y. So keep in mind ur replies starts fanboy stuff.
I agree that all 3 of them suck for 8th generation consoles but at least they're cheap and fun no pun intended
Microsoft got flack cuz their system was $500 and was being outperformed by a $400 system. The original Xbox cost more than a ps2 and could also outperform it. The ps3 cost more than the 360 and could also outperform it. The xb1 use to cost more than the ps4 and was being outperformed. That's ass backwards.
Original Xbox was poopin on Ps2.. stop playin
Sigh. Graphics over gameplay once again.
Really dude, go find something better to do with your time than troll, this game crushed most in graphics and ganepkay... Whoopsie took the bait...
Not entirely sure why you think I'm trolling. In case you weren't aware, since no one else is, 60 FPS makes the gameplay fundamentally better by reducing input lag. I'd vastly prefer if it got a downgrade if it meant 60 FPS. Gameplay beats graphics every time. At least to me :/
60 fps reduces input lag by about 0.2 of a second aka nothing you would notice.
Because frames = gameplay./s A constant 30 FPS aka locked is perfectly playable and smooth enough. sure 60 fps is even smoother and snappier. But input lag alone doesnt dictate how well a game plays or how fun it is to play. KZ2 > COD every day of my life. 30 vs 60 fps. Nice immersive weighty controls to complement an intense, gritty sci-fi shooter with amazing physics, amazing details and amazing impactful weapons and grenades! At the time of release KZ2 had longer input lag than normal, they patched it so it got a bit better, but despite it I had such an amazing time... Doing shit like this: https://www.youtube.com/wat... And this: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Killzone has less than 150 people playing online at the moment while Cod has like 2-3 million per day playing lmfao.
@koolaid241 Whatever man, millions of people are currently eating at MC Donalds too.
Graphics over gameplay? Did you even see the gameplay trailer? 60 fps doesn't always make game better. It depends on the pace of the game. Input lag really? It's a single player game. The devs made the game run @ 30 fps and are going to accommodate for the input lag.
If this is how the game is going to look on PS4 native, this would be the best look game on consoles. Better than The Order.
Nice to see Guerilla stopped trying to kill Halo and finally do their own thing
Except for the fact that GG never implied that it was the stupid media and Halo fanboys. To this day KZ2>Any Halo
Sony themselves were the ones who hyped Killzone as their own Halo killer
No they didn't. The media did. Stop trying to start an argument.
Yes they did, Sony hyped the first one as their own personal Halo killer
If they have to lower to 900p or have a scalable resolution I'd be ok with that. Please make sure that framerate is consistent and the shadows not jaggy messes.
I don't give a crap about the 30 fps. If that demo represents what in the game. DAY ONE BUY.
That's fine, we have no choice. But I wish they would show us a downgraded version running at 60 and compare. Coming from pc I have always found 30 to 60 is worth dropping some settings down. Especially after you've played it a couple hours and the gfx aren't as important, but running around a boulder smoothly to shoot the boss dinosaur IS much more important. If people had an option nearly all would leave on 60 after awhile
Game of show for me. Original and well thought out - a typical Sony first party effort. Kind of wish it had MP but oh well I am sure GG will make the campaign long and satisfying either way. Wonder if this will spawn sequels like Killzone did for them before. Either way cant wait to get this gem.
JUst read that the game has no loading
I don't care as long as they don't downgrade it
i would prefer 60fps at 720p to 30fps at 1080p
