A small snippet concerning Guerrilla Games Technical Director, Michiel van der Leeuw, giving his opinion for developing on the Playstation 3.
Not much new info aside from the fully destructible environments. To claim to be "approaching reality" is a pretty grand statement to make. Of course, when anything is visually clearer and more realistic, it's technically "approaching" reality rather than moving away from it. Still, I'm optimistic and hopefuly they can pull it off, but we're going on two years without a single piece of visual evidence. That's either a good sign, or a bad one, and we will know soon, I guess.
WHO IS APPROVING STORIES ON THIS SITE... I posted this like 4 days ago. lol
Killzone is a $30 million project so it better have destructible enviroments! Also, the tech demo showed fantasic realistic lighting and the character models were amazing!
I can't wait to play the demo later this year!
I think that if they feel the gameplay meets the trailer, as I'm sure they will claim, they should at E3 show the gameplay alongside the CG trailer so we can all see it together :)
Yeah good idea, assuming the gap betwen them isn`t too great
Thats a great idea...Sony should show the E3 2005 trailer along side the new gameplay trailer...although the trailer shown at GDC was just a tech demo showing the lighting effects and such. It was not a real represtation of the actual game.
But if there using Sonys new tools like Middlware or PS3 Edge I'm sure there getting plenty of stuff that they wanted to do on the PS3 that they couldnt on PS2.
I know that they are using Sony's tools for example PlayStation Edge becuase that was the whole reason behind the tech demo of Killzone at GDC.
But I think it will be over a $30 million project when they are done with it and maybe even more after all the marketing. This is Sony's baby and they know they can't go wrong here.
The Edge Tools were formed from First and Second Party development on games like Killzone and Heavenly Sword. I wouldnt be too worried about this game.
It's already been stated at 20 million, so count on that increasing probably and then there's always marketing. 30 million might be a low estimate.
Then it will be great. I'm a FPS freak. Can't wait for Killzone (e3-05 version).
Money != quality. Hopefully it will be great, but development costs aren't everything.
If that logic was right...
Lost Planet would be twice as good as Gears of War. LP also did cost a lot more as Gears.
Money is not what it's about. Oh yeah. Killzone 1 reviews got between 6 and 7 average. Why do people think this game will be so good then? Only because of the E3 2005 CGI stuff? Don't get it actually
How exactly do you get a 6 AND 7 AVERAGE? What strange Mathematics tutoring you had themart.
This game is gonna be SICK !!
MAN! I can't wait. HALO 3 is about to come out and KILLZONE 2 is almost ready "i think". I'll be so happy when i get both of this games.
I think KILLZONE 2 is going to look as real as the one video that SONY showed us at E305, It's going to be great!
You guys are going to make the mods get strict on the approval system. Soo much duplicate news gets through its amazing. Guys.. I go through trouble to get these articles...atleast read them will ya.
@ Deepbrown: Ouchhhh... well you could of told me that when I posted it.
I think the translation wasnt perfect...that's all. This is a new look on it. It's all good. Especially when yours said Deustchland when Amsterdam is in The Netherlands lol
Relax bro. I knew this had the same content as yours. Mine's just easier on the eyes :)
I thought Europe was one big country...
Who's that in you avatar?
I remember Black was supposed to feature destructible environments, but I had a hard time puncturing anything in that game. Not a bad title at all, just pointing that out. I do have my doubts when it comes to this kind of thing, especially since I personally haven't seen destructible environments implemented in an impressive way(usually the same window pane/table panel breaks off no matter where the object is shot).
Hopefully they implement technology similar to the Indiana Jones tech demo that was floating around. Now THAT was some impressive fragmentation effects, leagues better than what I've ever seen before, and that is relatively new technology; I can only imagine what it would be like were it more refined.
I have my doubts...especially with all of the hoped-for things this game is supposed to achieve(animation quality/graphics, and now this). I have to tip my hat to this team though, they've got some great aspirations. I only hope they all fall through, should be a stellar game if they do.
Ive never felt so excited for a game i have not even seen yet. All the destructible environments and physics based engines will make a incredible 1 or 2 player game but i really wanna know if their will be online battles.( deathmatch ) i love resistance and this feature extended the life of that game 30 fold. i play RFOM daily and i want killzone 2 to take its place as my vice. Sony has got something up their sleeve with killzone and heavenly sword , also known as a 1-2 punch. i hope sony makes my jaw drop !!!
I hope they are talking about the interactivity as an indication of reaching reality...just put in ground deformation of MotorStorm, intact enemies and debris of Resistance, procedural stuff of the likes of LAIR and animaion quality of the E3'05 trailer and definitely its the most technically advanced title ever to be realeased. All that garnished with ground vehicles and multi-themed(cities, snow-scapes, jungle, desert, beach etc.) environments would be like visiting an earthly heaven !!!
Go for it Guerilla !
I like shooting at water. It looky nicey. How about a stage here you have to traverse waist deep in water! That would be awesome! Technically, that would kick all sorts of a$$!
is great for shooting water and playing in waist deep. I can't wait for the Next GEN SOCOM. But this game is going to get plenty of play time from me. I really enjoyed the first killzone (great story). I also enjoyed switching characters. This should be an A+ game.
I guess I don't understand everyone talking about how this game is "gonna pwn" or is "sick". There is absolutely no precedent for these kind of comments. The first Killzone sucked balls, and all of a sudden Sony shows us a CGI trailer and we're suppose to assume this is game is going to be the best ever? This is the exact reason this game will fail, cause the hype is already too huge for a game that really isn't that good (based on the first one).
This is much different than Halo, cause the first game was great. If anything Halo 2 was a let down, cause of all the hype, but at least there was some precedence of excellence before the sequel.
Yea I agree with you.... everything is just speculation...
but man... I had no clue there was a 30 million dollar budget on this game....
the hype around Killzone is too great, i agree. And the first one was a good, but not mindblowing game, which needs to have the issues with it corrected, if Killzone 2 is going to be better. The first game had a good art direction, and was a fun, but flawed experience - bad fps, multiplayer, and variation in the gameplay.
Addressing those issues should be the goal with this game, not how close it`s going to get to the first trailer (even though that will be interesting to see too, don`t get me wrong), which is Sony`s fault really. I would hate to see Killzone 2 end up as a Getaway 2, because the game has a lot of potential
Hype is a killer
Hmm..........................T he E3 2005 trailer worked. That is how they get ya. As my grand mother would say.
anyone who has played KZ1 to the finish, and played online, knows that KZ1 is a cult classic. The hype is all that hurt it, it was in no shape or form a bad game it was actually great. even with more hype, im sure this game will pull through.
THERE POURING 20M OR 30M INTO IT'S DEVELOPMENT, THAT ACTUALLY COSTS MORE THAN SOME FILMS TO MAKE, SO YOU KNOW ANYTHIGN IS POSSIBLY ESPECIALLY WITH BLU-RAY BEING USED, THE SPACE WILL BE UNLIMITED.
With the budget and technology there is HUGE potential. This game could be great. The point I was making was that until we see some "real" screens or gameplay there is no point in saying that this game will rock.
Can,t wait to see this game and Halo3 in action im realy looking forward to these two fps games.
Stop the whining. Nobody gives a sh*t.
As for Killzone 2, this could either make or break the PS3. A lot of people are going to eat their own words no matter which way it goes. It better be specfvckingtacular!
it can make it... but in now way will it break it... if it's not a good game...
The PS haa "other" good games that are coming that don't have that much pressure on them...
The only reality there getting closer to is the reality that this game will never look good or even close to what was shown at E3 two years ago! You guy's are setting your hopes up to high for PS3 games and should set them low because I have a funny feeling that this particular game which part one sucked by the way will never live up to the hype!
it won`t look as good as it did at e3 , but it`ll still be a great game.
don`t disillusion yourselves w/ target trailers.
just love what comes out for what it is when your playing it.
Was not a bad game. It wasn't great by any means. It has great story line, but you could tell that they were pushing the PS2 to far withthe AI which was to repetitive. The graphics were good for PS2. I think they will make this game everything the first one was suppposed to be since they have the technology. But to each his own.
first one was crap
.... what makes you think this game is gonna be good?
cuz it has millions of dollars put into it?
Because of the PS3's powerful cell processor,and the original was on the PS2,and guerilla games are working really hard on it!
wait, that's it? oh man the ps3 rules.
*freezes self until killzone 2 is released* first game was awesome and amazing. im willing to wait forever for this game
How can you deny that Sony is pouring everything they have into this game? They KNOW they have to beat Halo. The original KZ was picked up before it was going to be on PC. They thought that maybe it would combat Halo...but never really looked into the game much. They saw the hype like we did and saw potential...like we did. Now, they're working their ARSES off to make it the best FPS on any console EVER! It's gonna be HARD to beat UTIII though...cuz...Halo's been outdated since the first game. Either KZ2 or UTIII will be the best FPS of this generation...i'm SURE!!!
Mart. Once again...give it up. You're just making the 360 look bad. I know it's an amazing system. I know it has some VERY strong points and a GREAT line-up this year...oh, who am I kidding? You won't read this part. You'll only read up until I diss Halo and get pissed off. Darn you Mart....DARN YOU TO LIMBO!!!
I just don't respect MS for bringing NOTHING to the gaming market. That's the ONLY reason I refuse to buy an 360. Nothing against the games...I love Dead Rising, GOW, Lost Planet, and Crackdown...<all amazing! I just won't pay those jerks who buy off everyone to destroy an industry that was formerly for creative thinkers...not cheap, gutless fanboys who cuss you out on Live. It's not worth it!
I read what he wrote and I dont understand why your bashing him he made like a one sentence quote about it not always being about the money...
your kidding me right? I am not making any judgements towards this game but everyone even people on that websites page are like "holy sh*t this is going to be amazing" ok I'm sorry but why? Their is no evidence backing that claim, the first game most certainly wasn't, at the same time their isn't any evidence to why the sequel wont be amazing. I'm sorry though I'm going to need a little more than a CGI trailer and a developer saying they have great lighting and fully destructible environments. Black had pretty much fully destructible environments and that game was on the PS2. I'm saving judgement rather than praising a developer who made a shoddy first game and got a huge budget to make a sequel
Mart is a true Fanboy.....
The only information I could find out about the demo is that it is supposed to come out before the Halo Beta. Does anyone even know the month it is supposed to come out? I hate how everyone thought that Halo was the best multiplayer ever;it was well balanced, but it did not even have any bots.I just wanted to play with my brother and 1 vs. 1 gets boring. Come on, Killzone is better in nearly every way.
