TMC: Gears of War creators showed their latest upgraded to their Unreal game engine at GDC. Take a look at some footage featuring a brumak famous from the Gears of War series.
Nice water effects on the Brumak. Looks really cool.
I would love it if they did more with the cool destruction they showed off at GDC in 2008. That destruction on that tech demo was more impressive than that on BC2.
... you guys remember the uber Gears2 tech demo?.. then the final game came out looking like a spit shine version of Gears 1? .. uhm, yeah >.>
there's only one issue I have with this demo... there's is hardly any light, and little to no color. such conditions could easily hide poor resolution textures, aliasing (not as many objects visible), etc. It had some good looking vegetation, but we've seen as good in plenty of games by now, and it definitely wasn't on the level of Uncharted.
After seeing GOW3 and Alan Wake this demo didn't wow me but it looks very promising though. I just can't wait to see the game as a whole at E3.
Personally I don't think this looks all that great. Still has the plastic like look the unreal engine made famous. There are MUCH better looking games out there both on 360 and PS3. I really don't get the fuss over the Unreal Engine. It's really showing it's age yet alot of people used it and before it was old alot of people still used it despite the fact that it was a buggy mess. I mean there was a reason gears of war online gained the nick name Glitches of War.
I actually like the style. They need to do something different, especially after Gears 2.
I've always been a huge fan of the Gears series. If they can pull of this kind of thing with the in-game engine, that'd be outstanding.
low quality video we cant judge anything with this
WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE !!!
Tech demo.... Well okay.. no doubt 360 fanboys will get wet over this thinking end product can be anything like this which if they do they will be lying to themselves. No console can probably do anything like that right now. Pc could probably manage it.. They used Gears so what?? This was probably running on PC.
are here to slate another great 360 game. I would take their opnions seriously if they ever said anything positive.
it didnt look bad, but i kept thinking it was going to be a tech demo. I was waiting for the brumak to knock down a tree or something and have it splinter. Oh well, guess I have to wait for the hd video.
Hey Sonydroids you think if you report this story the WORLD will not know about new UNREAL ENGINE updare for Gears of War 3? you are so desperade...:) and yeah..keep dreaming it can be possible realtime on PS3...
A new unreal engine wouldn't upset PS3 fanboys BECAUSE Unreal Engine is ALSO on PS3 :P You fail.
Yes, PS3 owners have the unrealist static lighting, all the (way way too) shinning surfaces, crap jumping in your face texture loading, block models and crap animations too.
unreal engine is on ps3 too but not the new gears 3 wen its announced xclusive to 360!!!!!!!
F your unreal engine
Does this new tech include online host advantage? If so I'm not interested. For a online community that touts its supposed superiority I find it funny that there is such a thing as host advantage.
Wow, after 2 sequels and five year span... still looks the same lol
UNREAL 3 ENGINE = TRUE CINEMATIC CAMERA LENS EFFECTS, REAL LIFE COLORS UNCHARTED 2 ENGINE = CINEMATIC CAMERA CARTOONISH EFFECTS, OVER SATURATED COLORS FTW!
So everything you see every single day is just....gray? That's you're perspective of real life? Man you should see a doctor about that.
Imad, I would love to live in the fantasy world your currently in. Answer me this. If the 360 that has been out a year longer than the ps3, why have they been holding back these supposed great graphics? I have the answer, it's because they can't produce them. Otherwise we would have seen them already. Natal is a bust just like the move. Waggle is for old folks and noobs. So that's not gonna move systems. A slim 360 obviously would be a mistake, I mean if anything they should make a bigger model with fans and make it liquid cooled so that's not gonna happen. A new driving sim with day night driving and weather better than gt5. Once again gt5 has that. Not a biggie. Halo best open world graphics. I doubt it. It'll be with fog all night maps and flashlights to hide the lack of good graphics like alan wake. 360 dev community pull the trigger. What 360 dev community? What do they have like 2 1st party devs. You made me LOL with that one. Greenburg playing all of his cards. I think he's played them all back in 07. The only thing he can do now is bluff, or fluff which he is better at anyway.
While the video is impressive you must realize that this is cgi and not game play footage, Gears 3 probably won't be out until 2011, and I'll wait until they show gameplay footage. Standard DVD will most likely limit the game. Gears 1 was far better then Gears 2, If this video is showing gameplay then what would you expect but an hour long game, and gimped multiplayer.
This looks impressive. I wonder if Gears of War 3 will be on 360. Amidst the quotes,there is a confusion about whether it will be on this gen of consoles or next generation.
you look familiar?
I have one of those faces.
Saw him solo a few years ago. SOAD is better....
that darkness really hides how weak the unreal engine is Edit: lol look up, the mods went on a comment killstreak :P
Looks awesome. I hope we have some Gears 3 info soon.
Graphics could be Gears 1 for all I care, I want gameplay!
Graphics will be Gears 1.
I hope they bring back the server list though, I feel like I've been missing out on one of the greatest multiplayer games ever because of crappy matchmaking... My 48 hour trial has sense expired, leaving me wondering wtf people use gold for, I'm going to get a non-plagued-by-matchmaking PC copy to tide me over. Problem being they still improved gameplay ALOT in Gears 2, bullets slow down enemies, chainsaw duels, hostages, can you even stick grenades to walls in gears 1? The walls even exploded and mixed with the giblets. :(
LOL @ at anybody that thinks Gears 3 will be on the 360. Xbots are going to have to wait for the 720 lol.
Sorry stan, someone accidentally listed you wrong, sorry stan.
Lol this video is pretty much proof enough we'll see gears of war 3 on the 360. BTW GT5 = ps4 launch title
youtube quality, nuff said.
that's really not an excuse anymore because they've introduced hd, if you have low res than that is the viewer's fault not youtube though there's no hd option on this vid the res of the screen helps, trust me, mine is 1920 x 1200
yeah i know mista T but even some HD videos look like crap although i do see some nice high res. videos on youtube but those are usually japanese videos.
Wasn't ready for that.Epic knows that the stakes are being raised,so they better have an ace up their sleeve for E3! Either way,pretty impressive.
but you never know most likely its just CGI and look like what Gears2 should of looked like... im guessing
Now we just need to see actual in-game gameplay.
not impressed, at least not everything looks shiny now I'll give them that, it still looks a bit too shiny
it looks too dark now, what the ...?
Everything is soaking wet dumbass, it would be all shiny. I pity you fool.
LOL TOO DARK Guess they are trying to hide the bugs that the flopbox has trying to move big quality graphics ;)
Were is that article again about Sony fanboys. Man, you guys are the worst.
Terrible quality N4PS3G and his terrible blogspot are so boring lol
ok ummm i have notice something about epic every time Sony raises the bar u don't hear from epic for a while then god of war is about to drop and here they come to say hey look at us lol its wild to me i'm just saying it seems they are trying to keep u bots caught up i guess
Really dark and blurry, still has the distinctive shininess that characterizes Unreal Engine 3. The lighting wasn't even that good, it doesn't have the environmental quality of moonlight. As a tech demo, it is a fail.
Tech demo was already in the internet months ago. But looks good.
Looks cool, GEOW was always a good game and part 3 will be better than part 2, i hope. We have to wait to watch in HD.
My issue is the tech demos before gears 2 release were pretty impressive. Specially the water and how the ripple effects and how the promise of 100+ enemies on screen, soft body physic, dynamic lights and shadows etc. but the final game didn't look anything like that & scene where they showed 100+ enemies on screen, that was just dumb ai running forward and u can shoot them. Gears 2 was an impressive looking game but it wasn't as good as gears 1. Gears of War 1 in my opinion is one of the best game this gen. It was the first game to put a benchmark on graphics this gen.
I don't understand what's the problem. The gears of war 2 tech demo looked exactly like the final version of the game. No one ever said the 100+ enemies would be smart AI. You would get massacred in 10 seconds if you fough against 100+ enemies who can all take cover, flank you, nade you etc. The meat cube was implemented in a way no one would have expected and it looked awesome. tech demo http://www.youtube.com/watc... Here is an example to show the water tech is the same in the final version http://www.youtube.com/watc... And here is a good example of the new lighting tech with ambient occlusion http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I think that many who criticize the graphics in gears of war 2, not played a game on this (or at least not all seen). gears of war 2 has everything (almost) as shown in the technical demonstration. Simply, depending on the design of different locations, different graphics effects are applied in different places ... to appreciate the game in full scale, you need to see all locations. And in terms of graphics gears of war 2 was much higher than the first part. nilamo - you're absolutely right.
Yawn. Looks exactly like Gears 2.
Sooo much grayyyy
You are posting in the wrong article, this is about gears not killzone 2.
so when you watch this video you see an entire palet of colour?????? you keep day dreaming bot
When you play killzone 2 from start to finish do you see the entire colour palette being used?????
When you play gears of war 2 from start to finish do you see the entire colour palette being used?????
It seems you guys are forgetting the massive title called UNCHARTED 2. YOu guysa re trying to catch up to uncharted 1 right now. so first it was uncharted 1 then metal gear solid then killzone 2 then uncharted 2 then god of war 3 then gran tourismo 5 then the last guardian then it will be killzone 3. sorry but even if you say that this game looks better then ps3 games, which is does not, we still have games to look forward to with better graphics. when you guys get your graphics title like alan wake which to 5 years to make ps3 will have set the bar miles higher. sorry bots. im looking forward to uncharted 3/killzone3/ next santa monica game bots are so pathetic.
Someone is going to nitpick the heck outta those games you just mention and then they'll say their games are better than the aforemention game noted above. Yep
not impressed at all
I just saw I black screen and heard monster noises. I think it's time for a new monitor :(
This engine is washed up... Lost planet 2 looks better than this and it isn't using UE3... sadly... i just cant get excited... people will call it incredible... but I've seen this all before.. as a technical demonstration of power they cant use this to say they are the king of any graphics crown... Alan Wake beats the panties off the UE3... Not impressed... not impressed.
