WarHawk BETA PS3 online gameplay footage direct video capture in widescreen 720x480 @ 30 fps
Finally Divx is getting attention. Infinitely better than youtube.
whoever was playing sucks really bad, i know im a noob, but trying to hide from a tank behind a flagpole???? lol he must have been blown 40 feet away.
looks bloody fun
Fun is an understatement.
That guy should delete that game off his hard drive, maybe just sell his PS3 all together, he really sucks BAD at video games. I could not watch it anymore. He keep running everywhere instead of taking a vehicle. Then he passes a tank he could get in, I'm yelling, get in the tank, get in the tank, but he doesn't, he dies shortly after that. Then finally he gets into a tank and dies almost instantly blaming it on lag, LOL, what a joke. That is when I saw enough.
For the game, it looks OK. Don't really like how everything has a border of color that glows around everything that you can pick up or around your enemy or team mates and the vehicles there in, just makes it cheap looking and unrealistic. I will pass for now.
is going to be awsome.
Man this makes me more depressed about the game.......... depressed that i didnt get into the beta. lol. Looks like incognito will deliver on the arcadey fun come august/sep. Seeing as how everyone has been singing nothing but praise about the beta.
stop complaining about the cheap graphics..
its only a beta!!
there will be HUGE changes
It looks great in person (via HDTV).
yet you sony fanboys say the exact opposite about the halo3 beta. Hypocrisy at its best.
halo 3 is a ton of fun but this has better graphics and has a lot bigger distance scale than halo 3
Graphics normally don't change much from beta to release.
and Second, If you need a defense for how it looks, reminding people It's only a cheap download game would work better.
are you kidding me ? That sucks man
not the game itself.
still if this is your type of game have fun people.
Although i agreed with your comment but dont' insult the BF series. It actually looks like Battlefiled Vietnam which is 2.5 years old i believe. BF2 is way much better than any game which is available on the current gen consoles. I'm now playing bf2142 which wont be matched by even Halo2 in gameplay or graphics dept.
BTW. The video looks like of a ps2 game rather than the super duper cell powered next gen console supposedly to take over the world.
FYI it's way better graphics than bf2 and bf2142. It's smooth as a whistle, no matter how much $h!t is going on, has HDR lighting, bump mapping, full water simulation, volumetric smoke etc...and a draw distance that blows any bf2 game away. Even on a expensive Pc you could not make BF2/2142 go near this graphically. The BF engine is just nowhere near as good.
Oh and the uncompressed 7.1 pcm sound on this also leaves BF2/2142 crying for its mom.
And for the xbot earlier and any other M$ shills, its way better gfx than any Halo game too.
$uck my balls.
tbh, i already like the graphics even at its beta stage...if incognito can improve it to be better then that's a plus that i'll welcome...thr gameplay is awesome and can't stop playing it...hopefully when the final product ships, incognito fixed the damn bugs that locks my ps3....
does anybody know how many maps are there in the final build? Is it just eucadia, archipelago, badlands, and island outposts with different versions?
it will be similar to how resistance handles it..
5 worlds, with different areas unlocked depending on how many people the server is set for...affectively there are 25 different locations total...and you could play one "world" with all 5 locations opened up if you so choose...but being that this is heavily based on vehicle combat, the worlds are extremely large...measured in several square kilometers apperantly...much bigger than even the 40 player behemoths in resistance like Manchester and Somerset...
well, there's more than those four in the beta alone...
first off, thanks for the info guys.....speaking of resistance, hurry up with those new maps insomniac....now back to playing beta...lolz
The Halo 3 crowd did this over and over...They will barely fix anything graphically for this before launch...they have plenty of work cut out for them getting this thing not to crash every 5 minutes...
please people...research at least a little before you post...wiki what a beta is...I dare you...and even that crap description will inform you of what the point of a test like this is...The only thing I can see getting fixed visually will be the pop up problems when driving a tank...certain camera angles will cause some clipping issues in which you can see your dudes head...thats the kind of little stuff that gets brushed up still while in beta stage...but the engine and code have been worked on since 05...there will not be a "HUGE" difference, to quote one of you...don't be an idiot...its really not that hard...
This is actually a game that could be compared to Halo though...not so much in gameplay...but both have a decidedly unrealistic art style...with not very "earthy" landscapes...and I have always thought both look really good...for some reason everyone and their dentist thought that Halo 3 was going to set a new standard in graphics...and Bungie always said visuals will take a back seat to gameplay, like always...and to me it looks exactly like it should, a lot better than before, but nothing that will catch you staring while your head gets kicked in...both of these games are pretty much going for everything working together to just be fun overall...there won't be one single thing for either that beats everything in other games...but the overall games will probably be the most fun for either platform this fall...
Jobe also said the target release game will play at 60fps with 4xAA...this 30fps is not the actual game...someone pointed that already...but it needed repeated...
Few things buddy.. first off, going to Wikipedia is hardly "research."
Secondly, typing a huge wall of text doesn't make up for the fact you have no idea what you are talking about. Bungie has stated several times that they are adding in graphical polish last to Halo 3, and the beta graphics are not final for multiplayer. The whole purpose of the Halo 3 beta is SOLELY to test network related issues. Think about it, Halo 3 will have hundreds of thousands of players online at the same time, otherwise there wouldn't even be a public beta test.
Please don't even try to compare WarHawk to Halo 3, aesthetically or mechanically... this game looks like fun but there really is no comparison...
And why not compare them? Dare something challenge your beloved franchise in an unrealistic arcade fashion? Is Halo a combat simulator, going for ultra-realistic paced action all of a sudden? If so, please let me know...I have been out of the loop I guess...Is Halo using Earth now as a backdrop? With public roads, and cities instead of weird bunkers and platforms that, like Warhawk, have no real reason for being there?
where did I ever say "wikipedia is research?"...If you are saying that most of the users on this board understand what exactly a beta test is, and what exactly is being addressed in such release...Wow...You have more faith in your fellow halo peeps that I do...and it goes both ways...Lots of people are convinced that because this is a beta release of warhawk, that the final build is going to look drastically better...It won't...
Being that most gamers, like me, suffered from some sort of ADHD at some point in their lives...while most is not drastic enough for drugs of any sort, it still takes some convincing to persuade said individuals into "learning"...If you noticed, I used the slang "wiki" as to not trigger the cognitive bug of "wikipedia = I might learn something...ab0rtz L0L!1"...I used this easy to find website, in which most modern browsers have a search function for it built in, to slightly brush up on where the discussion went...Take it with a grain of salt?...of course...Trust it's description more than some retard on this site?...you bet...How dare I attempt to convince some challenged kids to take 3 minutes and read a little about what they are claiming to understand first hand...
and to address your claims of Halo 3 will go against basically every other public beta release...in that it will definately have super improved visuals...you missed what I said...the final release will definitely have more polish to it probably...but if you think either of these games are going to look like night and day...You are wrong...I can point you to several video interviews with Jobe for Warhawk on how this is pretty much what the game will look like, aside from the fixed clipping issues...and different reps from Bungie sayin the same thing...they use phrases like "it will be more polished in the end..."...you really think "more polished" is going to be the difference between how it looks now, and Halo 3 setting the graphics standard for consoles a few months from now?...if you believe that, I have a bridge for sale that you might be interested in...or are you coming to terms with the fact that "more polish" could be more related to fixing artifacts, clipping, pop-up and some filtering possibly...and that it will take a pretty trained eye to notice most of the improvements...
EDIT: "Only software issues, or bugs and unimplemented features will be addressed."...the only part really worth reading from my "research" request...
This is a really promising game. The animation quality definitely went up a notch as well, and I love how soft the clouds feel.
While I'm playing I can fly up into the clouds and hide in them so I can catch my breath for a bit. Then I use the cruise missle while hiding in there to remotely blow up the enemies turrets.
this game is Awsome. fun as hell, no lag, and pretty easy to play. but the beta freezes up on me :( still getting it when its release, the beta is just a taste of things to come :)
First off, let me just say that i'm happy with how warhawk looks graphic-wise....Now, as intallshield was saying, nothing much will improve for graphics wise for the final build...(maybe for halo3 campaingn there will be, but imo not much for the multiplayer since that's the one they have for beta)...so people, here is the definition of "BETA" courtesy of our friends from wikipedia:
A beta version is the first version released outside the organization or community that develops the software, for the purpose of evaluation or real-world black/grey-box testing. The process of delivering a beta version to the users is called beta release.
The users of a beta version are said beta testers. They are usually customers or prospective customers of the organization that develops the software. They receive the software for free or for a reduced price, but act as free testers.
Beta versions test the supportability of the product, the go-to-market messaging while recruiting Beta customers, the manufacturability of the product, and the overall channel flow or channel reach.
Beta version software is likely to be useful for internal demonstrations and previews to select customers, but unstable and not yet ready for release. Some developers refer to this stage as a preview, a prototype, a technical preview (TP) or as an early access. As the second major stage in the release lifecycle, following the alpha stage, it is named after the Greek letter beta, the second letter in the Greek alphabet.
Often this stage begins when the developers announce a feature freeze on the product, indicating that no more feature requirements will be accepted for this version of the product. Only software issues, or bugs and unimplemented features will be addressed.
