A stunning tech video for the high-end PC game: Project Offset. Project Offset will be launching alongside Intel's Larrabee late this year to early next.
stunning? stf ^
Did you not see the vid? If you weren't impressed by that then.. I just dont' know.
I understand completely, it's not a PS3/360 (delete appropriately) exclusive, therefore it instantly becomes unimpressive.
This game will blow peoples mind away, its amazing :)
also coming to the 360 btw ;)
You have a link confirming that? When Intel acquired them they stopped and dropped all mention of Xbox 360. I don't think it's coming but it would sure be a nice surprise if it did.
No, it's PC-exclusive.
I see fail in the video, specifically when the big pillar falls, the dust it creates go out threw the pillar like it wasn't there.
Oh dear god no!
I see fail in your comment.
Please, tell me you were just being sarcastic... SAY IT!
Hahaha HA! I think he's actually --> serious <-- Yeeeeeeesh!
Meanwhile,the studio was acquired by Intel and Project Offset is meant to be a PC exclusive spearheading the new Intel chips for next year. However, it is not a big loss, since it has almost always been vapourware.
Sorry, man. That was before Intel bought them and upgraded the engine to use as a showcase for Larrabee.
This is why i have a New High End PC
That is why your parents have a high end PC.
NO KID that is why i spend +2000 of my savings.
Your parents have a weak ass bank account. Way to completely fail at flexing e-nuts. Dumbfvck.
WOW! that looks awesome
Wow I'm glad it's still in developpement. 3 years ago, it was my most wanted game!
...until Intel bought the dev, and decided to make the WHOLE GAME into a tech demo. I think this will end up being a launch title for the next XBOX, with an earlier release for PC.
This will be the launch title for Larabee processor, it will showcase what the builtin GPU can do.
I wonder if it will run on nVidia and ATI cards. I would expect this to run better on Larabee but then again I wouldn't be surprised if somebody makes it run better on a competitor's card. Like what happened with ATI and nVidia around the FX series of cards when nVidia released a tech demo that ran better on ATI hardware. Haha.
I think you'll only see this on console if Intel succeeds in getting their larrabee design into one or more of the next-gen consoles.
Does this mean that I wouldn't need to have a high end graphics card at all?
Sort of, you have to remember this is Intel, aka the Havok people, they've got people doing dedicated work designing physics and AI engines, if this is a tech demo, it's going to be a damn good one because of the huge focus on so many things.
amazing. Looks like its time to upgrade the pc later this year..
omg that was awesome
I hope Intel will license the Offset engine out to game developers like they do with the Havok. I so can't wait to play Project Offset. Plus the Meteor effects look great. So I have high hopes the game is going to be a blast.
With your high hopes comes high prices my friend. Save up! I know my poor 8800GT will struggle, if it runs on nVidia hardware to begin with.
I hardly could play Crisis when it came out I really mean that and already my PC feels out of date. So I think when Project Offset comes out I will wait some time so the tech can come down in price then I can play the game. There is no need for me to update right when the game comes. So I will wait a little then play the game. Because Its not like if I wait the game is going to go away.
Great logic man. And you shouldn't base your computer on how Crysis runs on it. It is simply pretty yet unoptimized code.
They're building the engine so that it can be licensed to other developers. So, wish granted.
I don't know for some reason to me this doesn't look as good as the original trailers they first put out for the game. From this video alone Crysis looks better IMO. In the first ones I saw no game came close to the graphics this game was putting out.
Very cool environmental effects, and I love the setting. edit: Does anyone know what type of game this is going to be?
Project Offset is to be a First Person/Third person Shooter game. Set in a Fantasy World. There are other great Project Offset videos on Gametrailers too. They may be old but they are still cool to look at and get a taste of what the game will look like.
i will be buying Onlive this fall to take care of my budget computer "missing parts". lol i can not wait to get my hands onto onlive this fall! i will be playing Project Offset game very soon! onlive for the win!
they can have their lil cryengine on their consoles :) We pc gamers get this awesome stuff, WOW :D
Oh my goodness. I think a little bit of wee just came out.
As a 360 owner I'd like to agree with you, but after Intel bought Project Offset the possibility of a 360 version pretty much vanished altogether. It's unlikely that Intel will enter the console market anytime soon, so you're likely to be disappointed if you're hoping for a 360 version. Looks like I might have to fork out major bucks to get a high-end PC.

Its good, but it isn't better than flowers graphics.....
For a tech demo I have to say it was a bit disappointing, Crysis looks a fair amount better than this and that is a full game, this is a tech demo that SHOULD show off the game at just about it's absolute best considering there aren't any real variables to weigh the graphics down. Will say that there are some console games that look better than this too(IMO).
I can't wait to take a part in a huge battle. Believe: You are in a zeppelin, flying towards a city like Minas Thirit. The whole city and the field is a battlefield. This Project: Offset!
