Some amazing CryEngine 2 screens with Global Illumination light effects.
it is indeed, but screenshots do no justice to this type of technology, let is bask in the digital light of a demonstration video instead @panda really?, I hate motion blur, it's massively exaggerated, i turn it off in crysis, they say at low frames per second it helps to improve the smoothness but i just think it's a performance hit and a distraction.
Yeah. Crysis looks way better in motion than in stills. (maybe it's the crazy object based motion blur. I love that stuff)
Yeah, I've never understood the concept of putting motion blur in a game. It's like the dev's never thought about how motion blur works in real life... Motion blur happens to us whether were snowboarding, or playing a video game. If something on your screen moves fast, it's going to be blurry to your eyes.. That's motion blur. You don't need to emulate it in the game, it already happens lol.
Great lookin' stuff right there. One thing wrong with it though. Needs more cowbell.
this is true
Life is better with more cowbell and turning it up to 11
I wish Crytek would get some games to market for consoles, I'm tired of these screenshots of what Cryengine 2 and 3 can do.
crysis 2 coming to console's in 2010......happy now.
Upgrade your computer for under $500 and play CryEngine 2 games if you want to so badly!
Wouldn't waste my time, besides I like playing with people who have skill, not like certains gamers that think that "pointing and clicking " with a mouse takes skill lmao.
Wow that was ignorant. Firstly, your going to find people with a lot more skill on the PC. There's generally a lot more dedicated hardcore gamers than on consoles. And less whiny little kids, and idiots who just want to curse at you because they suck. And yeah, it's easier to use a mouse to aim and a joystick. But that doesn't make it less of a challenge. Because everyone has the same advantage. It allows you too enjoy the game more because your not fiddling around with your joystick. The mouse becomes a part of you. Skill isn't about how well you move a joystick, but how well you actually aim and react to things.
i wonder how the 3yr old pcs from sony and micro will play the game once its out :P
This is so stupid Cryengine 1 wasn't even out of date, I think it's just like world record holders just beating their record just to say 'I'm better than everyone.' Focus on gameplay with the CryEngine 1 we all know how beautiful Crysis was and still is.
to disagree. It looks great, but it is outdated in one place. Optimization! It's horrible on that front. If they do a better job of optimizing the engine we'll all get better fps. Judging from the fact that it can run on consoles says they've fixed it. We'll see.
CryEngine 1 was made for FarCry in 2004. And the gameplay in CryEngine 2 was absolutely awesome, what the hell are you talking about?
will the 360 explode into gozillion pieces running this engine?
The 360 and PS3 can't run this engine. Crytek made a new engine which is more scalable and can run on consoles. Even though the game will look like Crysis on medium settings, it will still technically run on a console without it exploding.
What are u talkin about, PS3 has CELL BROADBAND ENEGINE, RSX REALITY SYNTHESISER, and BLOWS most PC memory away, with the BLU-RAY drive. This looks ok, but its nothing special, and is literally a GENERATION BEHIND KZ2
i am so sick of hearing about the cry egine. It this all the pc world has to offer since 2007?
Uhh, it's the most powerful game engine in existence. Why do you think it's still unmatched 2 years later? You're acting like because it's 2 years old, it's no longer relevant.
Crytek better start selling licenses to other devs pronto. CE3 is optimized, so you won't need an even more powerful rig to play CE3 games. I love what Crytek has done. My opinion is that when Crytek pushes the PC to its limits, which it did with CE2, then PC and chip manufacturers will have to build better hardware to accommodate that software. But I'm looking for more variety in the types of environments that CE3 will be used for. If there was a horror game made with the CE3 that would totally rock.
