Panzar Games has announced Forged by Chaos. A fantasy RPG for the PC using the Crysis Engine.
Now this looks promising. I would love to see Besthesda use the Crysis engine on their next Elder Scrolls game.
What if a company uses the Edge Engine (used in Killzone II) for an RPG or MMO. I'm glad an RPG is going to be using an engine like CryEngine2. Great times ahead for gamers.
Quite disappointing... The graphics are cool but the models suck
SE better step their game up lol
Bubbles and agrees for everyone who posted above me :D Yea the models look horrendous, but I think that's just in general (the characters look ugly) I wanna see the next Elder Scrolls with amazing graphics but i don't want this engine to become like the Unreal Engine in the sense where it becomes way too overused @Chubear Totally agree, maybe Sony have a secret game using that engine :P
Whats interesting about this for console owners is this is about what to expect for next gen's RPG's (At least at the beginning of the life cycle)
Normal maps are good but overall texture quality, polygon models and effects are sub-par. Very disappointing for an upcoming PC title. It amply demonstrates the vast gap we often see between marketing hype for an engine (with the requisite laundry list of "supported features") and actual results.
Definitely the best looking Graphics Engine on the console market right now.
Thats PC.. It would fry your rookie little x-box.
sigh... its not on consoles, and cryengine for consoles is FAAAAR away from making yourself a conclusion since its pre alpha status and far from finished.
crazy-eyez-killah No "Da" Einstein, my PS3 and 360 would be cook up and explode if they ran the level of detail/resolution/fps the PC can do with this engine. We all know a modern PC can run circles around the consoles graphically. Ghoul "Rolls Eyes" There is no game using it right now, but it's already scheduled for use on the consoles. Get the facts right folks before you comment.
"Definitely the best looking Graphics Engine on the console market right now." Explain..
*CryEngine 2 I'm afraid you've mistaken CE3 for CE2, Agent VX. The game looks amazing, but to tell the truth that ain't something new.
Denying the Edge Engine is indeed the very finest graphics engine on consoles is just weaksauce when we've seen it surpassed a trailer that people like you said could never be done even on the PS4.
its called the "deferred renderer" its not really a name but thats whats its called cause its not an engine that can be licensed
Lol he though it was on consoles. Ah dood your so sad :). You try but always fall bro, its time to get a ps3 bro. And to you guys who are talking, are you designing the ps4 or the next xbox to know that ? Oh yeah thx. You guys seen shots of the engine but we haven't seen any games on it, lets wait and see. We should have this kinds of talk once the PS4 is out and once the cry engine has a game out.
I would say do some searching on the web before anyone posts. As I do...you know, cause it takes literally under a minute to type in "cryengine 2 for consoles?" (the tricky part is debating to use yahoo or google). Just from titles of search results alone you can get your answers. The below video is the result of me going through with what I just typed. It was even the 3rd link on google. This comment and the search took just 5 minutes. Now whats more important 5 minutes or spending hours debating and having no clue.
Nice video PC looks way more better but to bad my PC is twice the price of a PS3 and has triple core 2,1 GHZ Phenom processors, 8500 GT and 3GB ram and it can barely run Gears of War with 5 FPS and WoW on full setting 1600x1050 with just under 7 FPS. Also it HP so that why it may suck :(
The puny 8500 you have in there is your biggest problem. go buy an 8800GT and try those games again. you'll be pleasantly surprised
wow thats nice for sure on 360 and ps3 but pc not really bad controlls
I'm struggling to make out what your trying to say but this is a PC only game. CryEngine 2 is not set up for the consoles. That's CryEngine 3.
i think he ment that it would be good on the ps3 or the 360, but not the pc due to controls ?
Which is an odd thing to say because the PC supports 360 and PS3 controllers.
Looks pretty good graphically but I really am getting sick and tired of generic fantasy stuff. No one seems to be trying to shake things up.
yeah but the second someone tries to you'll likely dogg them to hell in favour of the tried and true games you're used to.
Judging from the screens this appears to be a sort of melee arena/deathmatch game rather than a full blown open world rpg. Time will tell. The only RPG I'm looking forward to at the mo is DragonAge. Can't wait for Bioware's return to the fantasy genre.
to crazy-eyez-killah ""Definitely the best looking Graphics Engine on the console market right now." Explain.." I'll explain. Every light source is real time lighting... nothing faked like todays modern game engines... full use of real time ambient occlusion.... very nice customizable shader support... parrallax mapping... not a closed off world, but huge limitless openworld... where u can fly away from miles into the clouds (with volumetric clouds) to a single blade of grass all instantly. Can doo indoors and outdoors flawlessly... most realistic looking jungle u ever imagined... godrays... its own physics engine.. light that goes through objects.... very realistic animation setup for complete blending based on position and angle of inclination...i mean the list goes on and on and on.... cryengine2 is a landmark of technology... so yea... theres your explanation. Not to mention for the developers u dont have to compile a level since its all realtime... Lets put it this way... because of this game engine... its rumored steven spielburg is looking to crytek for something that can do prerendered quality in real time to make a 3d ghost in the shell film.
funny how this game is using cryengine3.... which is (gasp oh-ehm-gee) PC only at the moment
Bethesda + CryEngine2 + Lord of the Rings = Monumental WIN!
That's nice an all but when it comes to rpgs its about the story. Unlike other genres rpg is the one that depends on graphics the least. I'm not saying its a bad thing but in the world of rpgs looking good isn't everything like it is for some other genres.
It looks kind of what i'd imagine WoW 2 could look like
crazy-eyez-killah - 20 hours ago PM Track Ignore 2.1 - " Thats PC.. It would fry your rookie little x-box. " So says the guy/girl who has to update his video card every 3 months! All jokes aside I am excited about this engine. Gives us something fresh and very well polished. Can only hope it will be used in MMO's.
I am glad there will be new engines coming out to push PC hardware. My crappy e7300 (120$ at new and over clocked to 3.3ghz) and my ATI 4850 graphics card (129$ card at new egg) is more than enough power for any multiplatform current generation console port. I got these parts ~one year ago. I was begining to worry that I would have no new engines to look forward to until the next xbox comes out with the unreal engine 4 clones. (Yes I sadly admit that pc gaming engines are now and forever will be linked to current/future generation console technology, at least PC hopefully will be able to upscale) I am looking forward to seeing what id tech 5 engine can do, I most likely will hold off on any upgrade until I see what intel has up thier sleeve with larabee 1.0 and 2.0 for 2010 game on
