1UP: A brand new trailer for EA and Crytek's Crysis 2, filmed live at GDC 2010.
WOW! best looking game on console FACT! xbox360 is truly a graphical beast if Crysis was developed to run on High End Graphical System it would be xbox360. This Year has hardly begun and xbox360 is already churning out AAA games. Take Alan Wake for a instant that game already stands up against DX11 games on pc it would be hard to tell if it's not a DX11 game. The true power of xbox360 will be unveiled this year with mind blistering graphics only possible on xbox360.

it's funny when you say such bull like. wow
Holy sh1t. Everything looks fricken beautiful and awesome. I'm more excited to get my hands on the mod tools than the actual game to be honest. So much more to play with :D
But they said the X360 was maxed out... did N4G lie to me, again?
Crysis 2 looks awesome! Only possible on ps3, of course! ..oh wait. Ps3. It only does superbole. http://www.urbandictionary....
Glad you're impessed with Cryengine 3 on PS3.
Nice to see them taking cues from Killzone 2's cover system. That was one of the most intuitive FPS cover systems I've ever played with, IMO.
Did you not see (PC) at the bottom of some of those clips? Wait and reserve judgment otherwise you just end up looking foolish. But the 360 was never maxed out, dev were relying on Ue3 too much and made it look that way.
Hit reaction!? Hmmmm is it me or are they really trying to go after Killzone 2?
i am impressed all around but the ones that look the best to me did saw pc on them. But this is not a knock against ps3 or 360 those looked amazing to. Im just saying the ones where i was like wow did clearly read PC at the bottom.
http://www.gametrailers.com... PC game on day one for me LOL!!! funny to see this on Xbox360 LOL!!!
"you cannot continue making games with your own engines, buy ours instead"
killzone 2s cover system was as far from intuitive as you can possibly get lol. sticking to cover, aiming over the cover, and shooting required you to hold 3(!!!!) buttons, one of them being the horrible and hard to keep holding L2. Killzone 2 has a cover system. thats really all there is to say about it. its not great, its not even good, its not intuitive, but it HAS a cover system. Gears of War has an intuitive cover system - its easy to use, and works like it should.
He meant intuitive for people exceeding 70 in I.Q.! Holding aim and shoot is not difficult for most people. You actually have to do that in most games!
I guess fanboys and non-fanboys alike will hate you as well with the name like that! you downplayed KZ2 cover system nicely over there and then suddenly Gears! LOL EPIC FAIL! FPS vs TPS! give 1 other FPS that has proper FPS cover system like KZ2, then talk! if not, fvck off! and this is about Crysis 2 btw and I think it looks SWEET!
i admire this game engine
I don't like cover systems. I'd much prefer just being able to duck behind walls annd lean like I could in the first Crysis. I'll be pissed if I'm stuck in some sort of Gears of War system when I'm magnetically attracted to walls.
@ Panda I agree about the cover system. I don't want chest-high walls popping up wherever I go(*ahem* Gears of War).
In gears of war 1&2 you have to tap the "A" button to enter and exit cover. Selective memory just might be affecting you.
Very Impressive tech, hopefully we can see a proper HD capture of this vid
Wow...look at that face .
And there you have it folks.Pre Alpha footage of Crysis 2 looking better then anything to date,i am calling graphics king an all platforms.thank you Crytek :) This will stir up N4G abit...and its not exclusive to one super natural powerful console...Crytek sure will shut some fanboys mouth... Let the disagrees roll,you cant hide from truth :) @Below deferred rendering is not exclusive to PC,neither is real time global illumination,and it does support AA in deferred rendering,hence KZ2 uses it.Its easier that way because lightning only effects polys that you actually see,and forward rendering effects all polys.
Not having a PC, I have never played Crisis, or actually seen substantial gameplay. Is there any HD vids I can watch to give me some idea of just how good Crisis looks? Cheers
http://www.youtube.com/watc... That's vanilla Crysis, but there's dozens of mods that mess with the lighting that make it look 5x more awesome. @Shaman KZ2 uses quincunx (sp) anti-aliasing which blurs the hell out of the whole screen. I'm talking MSAA.
go to Gametrailers
If i remember correctly they already said in PC games magazine consoles will feature 2xMSAA.Anyway,deferred rendering does not restrict them in any way of using MSAA,Metro 2033 use deferred rendering and still supports MSAA on PC and on 360.Who knows maybe they even use their own method,we will see...
@ Panda, You've never played Killzone2.
but i'm still curious to see if it actually looks better than the best of the PS3. its not impossible, but considering its a 3rd party, and their first console game ever, I'm not expecting them to instantly dominate on consoles but I'm hoping so =D I always wanted to play crysis, never got the chance to actually fuully enjoy it, now i will get a chance =)
No it doesn't! Only multiplat devs use Quincunx!
I love how I'm more informed about your favourite games than you guys are. Straight from one of Guerrilla Game's developer conference presentations http://img412.imageshack.us... http://www.guerrilla-games.... Page 18 in the PDF.
I'm confused here. Does only the PC version use a deferred renderer? If the consoles use the deferred renderer that eliminates all possibility of having anti-aliasing (need DX10 or 11 for MSAA in a deferred lighting engine, like BFBC2).
No. For example, KZ2, crackdown, GTA 4 and Dead Space all have deferred lighting but have AA.
GTA IV and Dead Space do not use any AA. The only way I was able to get AA on Dead Space and GTA IV was to force it on in my Nvidia control panel.
I was talking console for those game. In any case I think had AA always on PC hence AA for Dead Space
Sweet! Cant wait.
Finally Advanced AI. In the 1st Crysis is not good. But Crytek is like the best, they have the crown of the best in Technology, Graphics and others.
God of War, Uncharted 2, kiss thine crowns goodbye. I hope more studios begin to use the CryEngine, I can see great games coming out of it.
Looks really good. But nothing earth chattering in the console scenes. The really impressive scenes said PC on the bottom. Crysis 2 (console version) is definitely better looking than MW2 and BF: BC 2. I will reserve judgement about whether it is also better looking than Killzone 2 until we can see a proper comparison using the final product.
KZ2 will be knocking on 2 years old by the time Crysis drops. It'll be KZ3 that you'll be comparing.
Need direct feed! Oh and some more PC footage.
Wow, 2010 is full of win. And most of the shots on this trailer were console based...pretty impressive indeed. I need a 2nd job for all the goodness coming out this year.
Good luck finding time to play all that goodness while working two jobs!
Yeah, KZ2 really did it for me. It will take a amazing game to over take it on a console. I am extremely excited for this game though, I was a huge fan of crysis and I still think thats the best looking game of all time, it just requires too much power.
Looking very good.Crytek is cleaning house with this new engine
Can't wait to get this for my PC.If it looks that good on consoles imagine how it looks on high end PC. PC gaming for life!
I really can't wait for this game, I think it will be the best looking game on console up until Killzone 3 is shown at E3( yes I'm calling it right now Killzone 3 E3 showing).
I still would've preferred being in the jungle, not the concrete jungle.
compared to some but i think the city was a way of relieving some strain on the engine to make it all around look better. Im sure lush jungles and independent moving foliage is alot harder then a huge concrete building that is not changed by wind etc. but again im no doctor so just a assumption.
design decision =) but then again, consider how much destruction there will be, and if all the buildings are enterable if that's the case, then i think we are both wrong xD
That would be like playing the same game twice! If they do KZ3 in the same dark cities on Helgan, I will be disappointed. Nobody would buy this game for a third time on an island! Imagine Uncharted 2 on an island again and then Uncharted 3 on an island!
PC Mods will take care of that!!!!!!
man is great,but not compare with U2,K2 ,Metro 2033 and Alan Wake,the PC version is wonderful,but the console one the best graphics not the best
pc version looks amazing, which is to be expected. im disspointed by the ps3 version though, i was expecting more, seeing as many fanboys were hyping this up. Uncharted 2 still unquestionable leader in the graphix department for the ps3. i hope this time crysis has actual fun gameplay unlike the previous installment.
its pointless to bring up another game when talking about graphics in a crysis article, the crysis fanboys will kill you, regardless of platform but I agree, the PC version, legendary but the console version, although AMAZING for a multi-plat, does NOT make games like KZ2 and U2 look outdated, quite the opposite i know its pre-alpha, and I expect more, but from what I saw on the console, i didn't get that "wow..." on the PC on the other hand...different story =)
You need to watch the vid again. Because when they cut to the editor, the 360 version is a blurfest. PS3 is clear as day. I don't think the 360 will run this in HD. Upscaled i reckon.
I thought I was the only one to notice that, for a second I Was like I hope I'm not the only one that sees this, because I said something about it in the gamer zone.
i thought the 360 was 'maxed out', and that Uncharted 2s graphics werent even possible on the 360, let alone graphics that easily surpass Uncharted 2s? lol sony fanboys must be so used to eating their own words by now.
from the looks of it, I still think uncharted 2 has better graphics, do to its art style. can Uncharted 2 be done on the 360? highly unlikely
no reason why uncharted 2 couldnt be done on the 360. graphically, Uncharted 2 is a mixed bag, and doesnt look half as good as the PS3 fanboys make it out to look.
If that is the case, how come I haven't seen any game come close to uncharted 2 on the 360?
your saying that Nathan drake look better than the last 10 secs of this video?? ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm no!!!!
probably cause you dont even have a 360? Gears of War 2 graphically puts Uncharted 2 to shame. Splinter Cell Conviction puts Uncharted 2 to shame. Alan Wake puts Uncharted 2 to shame.
wow IHateYouFanboys you are freaking delusional. It's so sad that xbox fanboys keep making fudge.
idk it didnt wow me like god of war 3 did but then again this is like the first build of the game we have seen
Who would think a First person shooter would could out do heavy rain character models??? @t least the PC version is very life like!!!!! eyes look ok!!!

That first person cover system looks really dumb, just press the control button, same thing.
