Crytek's Xbox 360 exclusive Codename: Kingdoms is further into production than you may think, Microsoft development boss Phil Spencer has revealed.
2011 it is then
What is this game about?
MS and Crytek are being very hush hush on it. So far the only known details for the game is what was shown in the trailer. It has do something along the lines of Gladiators I'm guessing and looks like it could be a RPG or Action/Adventure game. Anyways, 2011 it is. Sony getting Agent from Rockstar and MS getting Codename: Kingdoms from Crytek. It looks like Third party exclusives still exists.
By "a while" I think they mean like a year maximum (definitely not more than a year), because they would have actually shown something at E3 if they had anything, which the obviously didn't. Which means the game has only just come out of pre-production.
kingdoms of course. who needs gameplay anyway? ;)
Any exclusive deal with crytek is a good deal. Check out this tech demo...Many scenes with castles and fire and of course incredible graphics. In regards to this thread, :25, :49 and 1:10 look like the game they will be making. I'm sure that's what they showed M$ to get the deal done. I'm guessing it will be like Gears of War...TP, bloody, massive environments with crazy physics and melee attacks. I think it will be a launch title for the new 2012 360...just saying.
everyone and their granny has seen that vid already
I bet the game will be terrible, they didnt even show anything. PC gaming made them rich, but now they are going console...
Cry harder xD Edit: DA-SHREDDER...Gears 3 is going to crush Uncharted 3. Expect Uncharted 3 to get pushed back. They need to piggy back Epic's ideas and 6 months isn't enough time. Edit: I ain't start shit. Go check the person I was commenting towards. Edit: I've played UC2 plenty of times...go check my psn tag Dou8le-Toast3D. I think thats what it still is, idk. I've sold my PS3 since then...
Project harder xD Naughty dog dont need to piggyback anybody but themselves. They've proved they could step up...Why you even starting crap
WhyoWhy hes is butt hurt he couldnt play last years GoTY.
Not sure why you're starting up shit. The guy is dissing Crytek, not Xbox. And I don't blame him since Crysis 2 on the consoles doesn't look that great. I'm sure it will be impressive on PC, but I'm highly skeptical of their console developments, whether it's exclusive or multiplat. I can't believe you're comparing an upcoming gaming using Unreal Engine 3 (2006 tech) to a first party development engine.
You know absolutely nothing about tech. As people, other than the ones on this website, have mentioned. Unreal Engine is an ever evolving engine. The one you're speaking of is a one trick pony. Name it, UE has it, can't say the same about your favorite.
Trolls calm down. I didn't even say it's my favorite. Nor did I even mention whatever companies involved.
No flower. You no nothing about tech. The Unreal engine, a 'one size fits all' engine, is never going to out perform a proprietary first party engine developed SPECIFICALLY for that game. That coupled with hardware inferiority and production values will leave a sizable gap between anything produced by Naughty Dog, and anything on 360. I'ma get a lot of disagrees for this, since this is a 360 article. I just came here to see if there was any news on what they're developing, but I guess not. It's kinda weird Crytek would take this route, cause the only thing they've been successful with so far has been graphics, basically. Crysis isn't much fun in terms of gameplay, so it's interesting that they'd move forward with a title, and abandon there typical unique selling point (best graphics around).
why do you only have one bubble? and why do so many ignore you? and why do more people disagree with you? hmm...
I so wish I had the crystal ball, that some use to say which game is gonna be better a year away, especially when we have seen little to none of the game
this title will be ace i knw crytek are not going to do a game that wouldnt.. be class.. that is just fact.. its in the dna of the dev.. and a motto to all they do..especially in the graphical department.. so i would say i am really looking forward to this title
why do I get the feeling this is nothing more than another timed exclusive? I would bet that this game will be on the PS3 between 6 months to a year after it is released on the 360. Sorry but when it comes to game exclusivity I don't believe anything that MS says.
ever since the bioshock effect thats all you fanboys say...so should i say heavy rain will be on the 360 in 6 months....no it will not happen
Donèt really want heavy rain on the xbox, I not speaking for everyone but i watched my friend play it on his ps3 ( cool concept ) just too boring for me
I'm gonna disagree because I don't think Crytek would do that. They're a respectable developer and they seemed to be working closely with MS on this one.
Bioshock, Eternal Sonata, Star Ocean the Last Hope, Lost Planet, Tales of Vesperia, Tales of Liberty City, Fallout 3 DLC.
don't worry kinectimals will always be a 360 exclusive. And how does going by past history make me a fanboy? Bioshock, Ninja Gaiden, GTA DLC, etc etc etc. you sir a just a ........
Heavy Rain can't be run it on Xbox 360, because it don't have the PhysX Tech from Nvidia.
Microsoft is the publisher so no ps 3 version maybe a pc version because microsoft said they want to give pc some more love.
was also the publisher of ninja gaiden 2 edit:so if the game becomes successful crytek might do something like that as well and i think by change u mean add content
But not with ninja gaiden sigma 2. They got a loop by putting sigma in the name and change content.
Come on..No blood WTF.
Publishing doesn't mean anything. Like Microsoft are the publisher of Braid on XBL, and Sony are the publisher of Braid on PSN. Same game, different publishers. But yeah, they don't have the exclusive rights to publish, which would be different from just bieng the games publisher.
this is surely not going multiplat coz microsoft game studios is involved.. if u take a look anygame that has them in partnership is never a multi-platform.. so its a true exclusive surely
i dont expect much but lets see what happens
I bet its been worked on awhile. It takes more time to get the most out of a box than can only do so much. So they gotta cut as many corners as they can. Its so funny cause you got games like Uncharted 2 that get developed in 18 months, and then you got the most highly acclaimed devs who are supposedly the best at making graphics, that have been working for "awhile" on a project. I guess it just goes to show that devs do alot more talking than actually making games?
The had to wait for God of War 3 to come out to do some copying and pasting
I would bet the farm that this game is not even gonna be a fraction as good as any ps3 exclusive, let alone GOW3. Nice try there guy. Ohh I cant wait to see the sales figures for this title. It doesn't say Halo, Gears, or COD, this game is definitely on the wrong platform to begin with.
To be fair god of war gameplay is kinda lame atleast the fighting is for the rest God of war is like a real time rendered cgi movie dat graphics :p
@ Marius And you know this is a hack and slash how? And you are pretty ignorant to suggest any developer couldn't do hack and slash like any other, because it is really all the same.
So taking the time to develop your game is now a bad thing? And after Crackdown 2 was recently scrutinized for being rushed? You people are unbelievable.
DA_SHREDDER is simply trying to hide the hurt. It's quite obvious. It's okay buddy. Next time stay out of the 360 section and you won't have to make yourself feel better by writing nonsense. Not enough exclusive PS3 articles to comment on? What about Move or how the Eyetoy is the best tech ever made? Since, you know, it does everything Kinect does and more, right? Edit: I needed to read those girlish rants all over again. LOL! Hilarious! Da_Shredda is da man yo! actual_gamer "What's funny is how much time PS3 fanboys like you spend on 360 articles compared to their own" LMAO! It honestly never get's old and they keep coming back to share there knowledge.
What's funny is how much time PS3 fanboys like you spend on 360 articles compared to their own. Also, the only reason U2 took 18 months to make was because they already had the game built with Uncharted 1, they just built on top of it you retard
A new IP usually takes time becuase you have to start from scratch.
All People Bloody Care about anymore?!
it was until the 360 fanboys realized that they had lost the battle.. now it's more about gameplay all of a sudden....
Heh, there's a lot of logic in your reply. /s
Interested to see some actual gameplay.
I love ancient rome/greek/etc. There really isn't many good games on consoles, using these themes. I really hope this turns out to be good.
Not expecting much from this title. If its like GOW then I will stick with that since its good. We dont really need another GOW and Dante.
Why do they keep showing 300? It's not even about Spartans. Ugh, morons.
I think it will be similar to Oblivion, and it will go to the top of my AAA list if it looks anything like the fantasy town rendered with the Crytek engine(it was posted here a few weeks back, can anyone remember it).
I'd love to see an open world game like Oblivion running on the Cryengine 3, but I bet it would be hellish to run and a huge task to develop. But here's hoping!
And a picture for 300 was used for this story because....?
LOL PS3 fanboys are you THAT scared because of 1 exclusive? It's nothing like GOW and let me tell you GOW wasnt the first game to feature swords and dragons. So please STFU.
I just hope it's an actual good exclusive - too human and crackdown 2, and to some extent Alan Wake have made me lose faith in any 360 exclusive besides Gears and Halo being a stellar AAA game.
Crytek = rubbish games
Care to elaborate?
id you just say what I think you said? *Goes and looks again* Yeah, you did.....You get an F for Fail lol. I'm glad you're not on this side of the fence.
LOL You guys just troll without even knowing the game or shit, jeez.
has nothing to do with a specific console...I am playing BC2 on my 360 now and just getting so bored with shooters... regardless if you dont think there is an over abundance of shooters, oh well. I am looking forward to GR, KZ3 and the next crysis... how many more shooters can you want to play. If this is a true exclusive, I understand the comments
to get excited about yet
I see it being a GOW just with co-op 3 players and up to par graphics. Does that sound good to u all?
poblished by microsoft=exclosive unless sombody buys crytek
Try as I might, I can't think up any gameplay mechanic that would be specific to one platform and not another, besides something along the lines of controls. Maybe it's a Kinect game? Does anyone else understand the reasoning behind this being Xbox exclusive. Usually a dev will partner with a console maker when they are promised funding and development support. This is strange that I see them referring to an actual part of the game needing a specific platform to function. Anyways I look forward to seeing more on this game in the future as I consider Crytek one of my favorite developers (Cryengine2 is my mod tool of choice). I am hoping that the exclusive is justified like they are saying because I don't have an Xbox and I don't want to see it not go multiplatform and end up failing like Alan Wake did. Maybe they think the rippling, man-flesh, violence cocktail is a drink best served to the Xbox crowd.
