The first ingame scenes of Crysis 2 have been shown during a presentation at the Game Developers Conference 2010. Check out this video, which offers better quality than the previous ones.
Wow, the graphics are almost at Killzone 2 level. A multiplatform game to be that close to Killzone 2 is simply amazing. However, the PC version is just jaw dropping.
Looks better than killzone. Drab, dark visuals are not as hard as vibrance and lighting.
Yeah, Killzone 2 doesn't stand a chance against CryEngine 3
Why are we arguing Killzone 2 looks better than Crysis 2 when it still doesn't look better than the first (sure you may say it does in certain levels but look at the level design, even in an open world environment Killzone still can't beat it).
just another game pc will rock. with the lowered requirements, id say even a 8800gtx will handle this game just fine(of course the super high settings probably will struggle, however 8800gtx will out perform consoles yet again).
Dont know why ppl keep bringing up killzone 2 or god of war 3, they are simply average by PC standards. They dont surpass the quality of any multiplat shooter on the PC, no reason to be bringing them up again over and over.
Okay so was that video suppose to showcase Crysis 2? How come the screen shot comparisons of the console versions are identical to the PC version? And why does it look so generic...like most FPS games? KZ2 still looks better than this, I am not blown away one bit. The video quality was pathetic anyway so I will be waiting for better quality recordings
The PC version looks awesome surpassing Killzone 2 graphics, oh wait most multiplatforms in the pc version do look better than Kz2 and gow 3.
it actually makes me laugh that some hobos think Kill Zone 2 is better than crysis 2
Why are debating which game looks better anyone with brains should know anything pc surpasses anything on ps3.
Any one who claims that Killzone 2 consists of only drab, dark visuals, obviously has not played it. It's more colorful than this (admittedly short) Crysis 2 trailer is showing. Frankly, in my opinion this trailer is really not that impressive. And to boast about the cover- and the hit response system, two things that have been done extremely well in KZ2; well, they first have to prove that they can do it on that high a level.
Anyone know what the pc requirements are ? Im currently on a i5 750 and a ati 5770...
@spiderman http://www.tomshardware.com... this is a benchmark showing how 5770 runs on the original crysis in 1080p. crysis 2 isnt as taxing as the first one, since the maps are smaller. Id say you should expect around 40-45fps @1080p with no AA. Turn on 2x AA and you might be down to 30-35fps @1080p. The I5 is a very good cpu, though i would have spent more on the gpu instead. GPU is the determining factor when it comes to games. I would say your rig should handle this game well.
Oh noes something looks better than KZ2, it's the end of the world! I must make up a B.S. claim to make myself feel better. Says the PS fanboy. Give it up already. KZ2 looks great, but there were already better looking games out when it launched, get over it. Crysis is miles ahead of KZ2. Crysis 2 will put it to shame. Hell even the Just Cause 2 demo on PC is miles ahead of KZ2. I am really sick of hearing you little fangirls say the most retarded crap I have ever heard. It is quite obvious you have never experienced the graphical capabilities of a modern pc. What was shown in that gameplay video even on the console version of Crysis 2 far surpasses anything KZ2 did. OPEN WORLD ENVIRONMENT + PROCEDURAL DESTRUCTION + WICKED LIGHTING + REALLY NICE COLORING = way ahead of KZ2, even the 360 version. Of course the fangirls will say otherwise. Anyone with a brain will know the difference.
This game smells of awesome! it literally burns my nose hairs when i see this game. Though i will be getting it on 360 (no other choice, dont own PS3 or a decent PC), i will be going around to my makes place to see it on his gaming rig, which he is currently rebuilding from scratch... so far it has cost him $6K, he holding out on completing it for a while to see what new GPUs come out in the coming months, or some bs like that. I dont see the reason for having a suped up gaming rig, 1 its too expensive and 2 i dont play games on the computer only download movies tv shows music and check emails. and drop by to check out whats happening in the gaming world. And this game dominates KZ2 by the way, which isnt saying much since KZ2 cant even compete with Crysis.
It just tells you something when a game which is made 2 years after KZ is being compared to it...
@jonnybadfinger what sort of rig is he creating for 6k usd. would you mind listing the parts. you could have a monster rig for as much as 1500usd. even alienware wont cost you 6000usd lol. to outperform consoles you only need a 600-700usd rig. Later on since games are cheaper on pc, pc becomes cheaper in the long run. Also dont be fooled by the xbox 360's 300usd price tag, every game bought on the 360 or the ps3 costs more, plus you need to pay for online. Aside the super expensive accessories on the 360. Makes the 360 the most expensive platform to game on, ps3 coming in second. Pc being the cheapest to play on.
Look how the 360 fanboys latch onto this now! Every other month so and so multiplat will show the power of teh 360. Now they bring up KZ2 in every Crysis thread. "One day we'll have a multiplat game that is equivalent to the 85 titles on PS3 that blow away the 360!" Stop waiting and just buy a damn PS3 already! This is getting really pathetic!
Find me a PC with generally around the same kind of specs that the PS3 has. Then show me that it can run a game that looks better than Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, GOW3, GT5, The Last Guardian, etc. The 360 generally has around the same kind of specs that the PS3 has so its fair to compare the two. You don't see people comparing PS3 games to Wii games and claim superiority as if nobody expected it.
You're comparing a closed system (the PS3) with an open one (the PC), while a PC will have to be optimized to run on multiple setups (GPUs, CPUs, RAM, HDD, Motherboard, etc), a PS3 game is designed to be played on the PS3. Think about it, a developer will spend about 1 to 2 years to make a game, on one hand you have a team working on the PS3, while on the other hand, you'll have a similar team working on having the game run on multiple systems, you can't expect the same level of optimization. Just like the PS2 had a meager CPU/GPU combination, yet it did manage to run games like GT4 and GoW2. There's a reason launch games look so bad after a year or two, despite running on the exact same hardware. Anyway, that's how I see it.
"Wow, the graphics are almost at Killzone 2 level. A multiplatform game to be that close to Killzone 2 is simply amazing" OH MY GOD!!! You are the best example of what is a fncking ignorant PS3 loyalist that keep trying to convince the world that he is a gamer! Just fncking accept that Crysis an old game is still fncking all next gen games JUST TOO MUCH FOR ME LOL!!!
@champ21: My PCs gfx card alone cost more than my X360 did. What's your point? Everyone knows a PC with a bleeding edge GFX card is the cutting edge platform for any multiplat title that supports it and it's usually about $2000 investment for a rig. A $600 PC is not going to run Crysis2 in a GFX mode that will blow away consoles at an acceptable frame rate. If you're going to turn everything down you might as well use a console and not have to d*ck around with all the configurations/drivers/hassle of running PC games at optimum settings. That said, my 62" HDTV is a better display than my 24" monitor and my couch pwns my office chair for comfort. I'm glad I make enough $$$ to have both types of system to play at my leisure. It's apples and oranges, friends.
@fragen 2000usd for a rig? might i ask what sort of parts you intend to build that one with? i could make you a top notch rig for 1500usd. I dont know where you get 2000usd from. for 700usd you would get a rig that runs all of todays games @ maxxed out settings(hence there is no point of a 1500usd rig unless you wanna play crysis @1080p 4xaa extreme graphics with 60fps). A rig built with 700usd all you would have to do with todays games would be to slide all settings to max on any multiplat game. It would run circles around any console. Saying otherwise is being mistaken. heres a link to a 700usd rig with its benchmarks, tell me what console can do the same.. ill tell ya none: http://www.tomshardware.com... will run any game asides crysis @60fps+ maxed out 1080p. lastly incase you didnt know the pc has hdmi just like the consoles, not hard hooking it up to that 62inch tv.
I agree, the consoles look good, but PC is simply stunning
Wow, just wow.
Crysis 2 is a good example for the fact that you need a PC beside your PS3 or X360. The graphics and controls are simply better.
well yeh, the consoles caught up to pc's for the last few years imo, but now pc tech can advance further wheras we're stuck with whats in the consoles. it's not just about hardware though but also the engines.
well the 360 did catch up momentarily, however the ps3 was outdated before it even lauched. 8800gtx launched the time ps3 launched. ps3 is yet to produce a game that looks better then whatever the 8800gtx can do(which is crysis 1 on high settings in 1080p no AA). not to mention 8800gtx being an ancient design by todays standards rips both the consoles a new one in pretty much any multiplat. IGN a console centric site has been using the 8800gtx(along with a dual core cpu) in most of their head to heads till date, 8800gtx always wins, then IGN complains about pc needing uptodate hardware. The irony lol.
And all PC CPU's and GPU's are outdated compared to the Cell! What is your point? And please, don't ask for the benchmark links that have been posted up and down this site half a million times! It's a known fact now! And here I was going to discuss procedural damage. I come to the comments section and the fanboys are degrading the conversation again. How insecure!
You do know that the radeon 5870 has 1600 stream processors right? The cell has 6 or 7 stream processors. Kinda silly to say what you said don't you think. If crytek would have optimized crysis 2 for dx11 and the 5000 series radeon and next gen nvidia cards it would have been amazing (although it still looks awesome). I can understand some frustration for high end pc gamers.
"And all PC CPU's and GPU's are outdated compared to the Cell!" Idiot remark of the day.
Stream processors aren't the same as SPU's, but the principle is the same. The GPU would be like the Cell's main CPU, with a 1600 little shaders that can do things like AI and physcics calculations along with actual graphics.
Crysis 2 is meant to be played better on PC. Like FFXIII is meant to be played better on PS3. ''And all PC CPU's and GPU's are outdated compared to the Cell!'' Well, you are outdated.
who knows. As a fact crysis 2 will be a very-good-looking game and that's the only thing that counts.
who needs good gameplay today? /s
The graphics will definitely be awesome but gameplay is important, including physics, destructibility and AI. Can they deliver all this with Crysis 2 with MP, and 24+ players online. BFBC2 has most of this sorted but needs only to improve the graphics. So if no large MP online, I'll pass on the glitzy graphics of Crysis 2.
it is no contest. Gameplay is a different story as we will have to wait and see on that.
Can't wait to get back in the nanosuit
First video looked pretty bad, major pop in issues. But the second video looked insane.
eh not even on the level of Killzone 2 Flop confirmed
killzone 2 is one of the most ugliest and most depressing games i have ever played,its only factories , simply disgusting
I mean, that's a given with the PC's more up-to-date hardware and the developer's experience with programming for the PC. Also, the Crysis 2 engine on the consoles is a MULTIPLATFORM engine, like the Unreal Engine, which means there won't be any major differences between the 360 & Ps3 versions - ie. the Ps3 will be gimped to keep it even par with the 360. Once more, the PC will always be better. But isn't it interesting that it is only Ps3 exclusive games being compared to Crysis 1,2 when discussing which are the best next gen graphics?
So far I see nothing in this game that separates it from Killzone 2 except the rainbow colors which are nice but too bad Sev and company weren't fighting happy go lucky charm leprechauns on Helghan. it was dark and grey for a reason. The simple fact that the game Crysis 2 is compared with is Killzone 2 Uncharted 2 only certifies even more my statement that Crysis 2 is nothing but a console port (360) This game FAILS in comparison to the original Crysis PC. looks good though.
Ps3 fanboys are they getting payed by sony or something lol. @ivant said which means there won't be any major differences between the 360 & Ps3 versions - ie. the Ps3 will be gimped to keep it even par with the 360. ok ps3 fans what ever comes out of you a$$ must be true.
Please examine the thread further! You 360 fanboys keep bringing up PS3 exclusives in every crysis thread! Who is getting payed, when you guys are Aaron Greenturding up the threads talking about PS3 all the time and ignoring your own console!
EXACTLY, these fanboys are just praying and hoping that something on their console can match the quality of PS3 Exclusives.... because every time there is a Crysis 2 thread the go like "ZOMG!!! better than killzone 2!!!".....LMFAO very very pathetic..... sorry guys there will NEVER be a game on 360 that can match Killzone 2, far less U2, GOW3, TLG, GT5 etc....
yup,Sony gives me 30 grand a year along with a good dental and health care plan./s whats with you 360 fan girls all ways walking around like your sh!t dont stink.your no better then the rest of us or any one.all you do is complain every day about the ps3.
Didnt crytek themselves say that they didnt have to compromise anything with the ps3 version. face it guys some of you are just annoyed that it has gone to consoles.
@arny have you played crysis 2?, ive played killzone 2, but not crysis 2 so you can see how im not entitled to make a comparison
For the MOds!!!!! Back to the Jungle baby!!! http://www.youtube.com/watc... Lets see if killzone 3 can go back and beat this first!!! I mean come on kilzone is not even 1080p damn after 50 million dollars in development ???
How is that relevant? Performance is hardware dependent, not because of the development budget. By your logic my gameboy could max out Crysis had they spent enough developing it?
Wow. You guys sure love you some Killzone hey? PS3 must be doing it's job if the PC fanboys have to come in and trash Killzone 2 like this. Then again, I doubt half of these guys are PC fanboys...
I think you'll find people are only "trashing" KZ2 in response to FangBlade's initial post, who is an obvious troll. Besides, If you visited the PC section now and then you'll find the majority of the PC fans here are actual PC gamers. The only ones who bring up consoles games when comparing PC graphics are console fanboys. PC gamers tend to compare PC games with other PC games.
Understood. I apologize to the real PC gamers. Just didn't know they had so much animosity toward the PS3, and a lot of the comments talking about Killzone 2 and God of War 3's "inferior graphics" were just ridiculous. They do know the PS3 is a console right? I'm not a PC gamer, but even I know how much better a gaming PC can be compared to a console. Guess I'm just not used to these kinds of comments from PC gamers. I can't speak for Fangblade, but I'm guessing he was talking about the console versions. He even complimented the PC version, which did look pretty bad ass.
fanboys bring anything up, you just said your a pc fanboy, and i wouldnt doubt if any PC fanboy brought would bring anything in the realm of gaming up. fanboys are biased of their opinions. That's fine and dandy just as long as your not an idiot in comparing two completely games across completely different technology. i love fanboys, because i toss them a bone, and they just go at it like crazy.
killzone 3 will not looking better than 2...the ps3 has no more resources. Crysis 2 beats all the overhyped ps3 games like kz2 and gow3. Sry sonys,but thats a fact. if u cant see or wont believe it than QTFU.
Can't wait to get this for my gameing rig my two gtx 280 sli are waiting for this game can't wait.PC gaming is always superior!
Hmm I see the Ps fans and the PC fans, where are the XB2 fans?
does it better, and with no hands.
Are you joking? Kids....
Why PS3 get to compare with PC games? Where is the comparison of 360 to PC games?
this looks really good cant wait to see some more game play videos,very impressive looks great on the consoles,iv never played a crysis game iv seen some videos they didn't look like any thing special just a really good looking shooter, i like the nano suits the masks remind me of the helghast a little bit, kinda creepy in a way.
crysis 2 still doesnt look better than the first, and why are we comparing this game to old games, from other devs? might as well compare crysis 2 to golden eye. this article has nothing to do with killzone 2, or any other game. It has to do with crysis. The PC version of course is the best. While the console versions are great, the respective consoles have exclusives that outshine them, in the graphics department. My biggest concern is if the gameplay with be fun, the first was mediocre at best.
Better than GOW3???? Have you SEEN the newest screens of it???? MY GOD IT LOOKS FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC! Crysis 2 looks great but, I don't think it's gow3 good.
but this looks great for a multiplataform game and im glad, know lets see if they can make a good game with this engine. on PC they can cheat and make the game look better i mean Killzone 2 was made in 2005 and was on sale in 2009, thsi new killzone 3 may look better than crisys 2 in pc, lets wait and see what happend, and GOD OF WAR 3 Already looks better than any pc game . are you blind?
