Enodo is licencee of Cry Engine 3. The french dudes have made a virtual model of a french cathedral... and... well... it looks f*cking real! Get the details after the jump!
If you think that just looks okay, I'd love to hear what impresses you.
I think the people that think this looks amazing aren't watching it in 720p because it just looks average to bad. What is so special about that video? Looks like Assassins Creed
No reply, just disagree fairys. Thought so. No one care to explain what looks so good?
Probably KZ if its not exclusive to the ps3, and cannot possibly look as good. Thats the ps3 fanboy logic I even heard them saying Killzone and Uncharted have unravaled graphics across all platforms including pc...I lol'd
If you don't understand why you receive disagrees for stating that this looks like Assassin's Creed then there's no point in explaining it to you.
There are far better tech demo's out there than that...lol. Is that for the Iphone because it doesn't look much better than the FREE Unreal Iphone vids...lol http://www.youtube.com/watc... Who cares if some one released some tech demo on some PC NOBODY owns. There are hundreds of tech demo's out there. Crytek better step up on consoles or they should just go away. They keep showing Crysis 2 on some ridiculous PC and act like the console version will look the same. If Crysis 2 tanks, they will never live it down.
This looks like something some college students would do for a school project. Not impressive at all. Just because it's CryEngine doesn't mean it automatically looks awesome...and this proves it.
Get over it, this look average.
I have to agree. I have seen better looking stuff on the cryengine 2 and other games.
Most tech engines or the popular ones all bring the same tech to the table, give or take a few things. What matters most and what people seem to unknowingly bicker about, is a games particular art style. You can't be mad at people who think a cathedral looks only "ok". Earlier this gen, people probably would've said, "No way games can look like that.", but as time has obviously passed, you can see this type of stuff in most games released these days. Its the art direction that sets games apart from one another. I've gotten to the point where human character animations and models don't really impress me that much, except for 1 or 2 games. What really gets me excited is the creature designs. I want to look at a game with fantasy type creatures or aliens whose animations are believable, just as detailed as the human characters look. Not to diss Crysis, but the creature designs, especially the Pingers, look like Metroid Prime space pirates. Its like they don't fit into the photo-realism that Crysis knocks out of the park.
Yup, we have gotten used to these graphics and its time for a new generation of UBER FREAKING AWESOME GRAPHICS!
alot of game developers should make a daytime and night time map or have the map start out as day and end in night, because all these lighting demonstration are useless if they just ship out the game with all maps being one certain day effect
Agreed Istanbull , especially for a tech demo - it's underwhelming. Crysis 2 on PC looks way better than that. Maybe people aren't viewing it in 'full screen' mode. Or maybe they were told it "Kicks Ass!" and all independent thought and critical thinking skills vanished.
For instance, take games like Kane & Lynch 2, Damnation, Legendary; all developed from UE3, yet there are some games that utilizes earlier 2.5 builds like Bioshock and make it beautiful. -End of Line
Lighting and textures are amazing in this video. Absolutely gorgeous.
Not much impressive about it, but then again it's not going to be like the jump Crysis made as far as graphics are concerned. (to confirm, I'm not saying the graphics look terrible or anything, they still look realistic).
looks awesome! I want Crysis 2 on the PC to look like this, or maybe Assassin's Creed 3! That would be heaven!
Now i see why CE3 is the most advanced engine available.
Not bad, but I really don't see what the big deal is with that engine.
No other game engine can create such realistic visuals.
CryEngine 4.0 will be even better.. no wait, CryEngine 5.0 will be *even* better.. no wait, but then Cryengine 6.0.. lol, It never ends.
of course CryEngine 4 and 5 will be better.it's technology.technology evolves
War never changes.
Or does it? No, it is war! Or maybe it does. From Duty Calls hah
War has changed.
Lots of jaggie's I think it was youtube though. Even the 720 looks sub par on youtube
Why are websites from Germany are so damn slow. Websites from Prtugal, France, Italy, England, Hungary even Poland load much much faster. From now on I won't even bother.
Depends if your going for realism. There are plenty of engines that could handle that. But alot of game designers tend to lean towards artstyle instead of reality. I'm not knocking it, looks nice.
- http://www.youtube.com/watc... We need more pc exclusives to look like this!!
@Xfanboy is that from avatar? holy crap thats amazing
Have any of you guys seen the otoy engine? This looks impressive but what love the idea of the otoy engine being used next gen.
ID tech5 :)
patience Raziel, patience.
is this a reconstruction of a real chapel? its beautiful! such art and color!
I hope that's on consoles because if that's PC colour me unimpressed.
It's a CryEngine 3 techdemo. Why would you only be impressed by it if it's on consoles.
Because in terms of PC graphics it's nothing special. I'm assuming Gypsygib was hoping games would look better than this on CryEngine3 PC, though in fairness to Crytek not all tech demos use the engine's whole power so it's not fair complaining that this is all we're getting out of PC. It's down to the developer.
Would be nice to see this used with an Assassin's Creed game
I watched this in 720p on my 37inch HDTV and its very good but not like real life. I have played Crysis 1 on the same TV at 720p and thats just as good. Uncharted 2 wasn't too far off as good as this.
Why would you play crysis 1 at 720p?
My TV is only 720p or 1080i, it hasn't got 1080p. If I set my computer to any other setting, the picture is poor.
Well, not to be hostile here, but if you aren't playing at 1920x1080 with good AA and high settings then I don't think you can compare crysis to uncharted.
i like pretty buildings
Looks impressive. Nothing extraordinary however.
Looks like uncharted 3 graphics
You know how U3 looks? I'm impressed. You must have an early copy of the game or something. Oh wait, you're just judging based on a trailer.
Lol......actually it's the developers video and now that you made me think about it ,U3 could end up looking better than this.
Still photo of a video > actual video... clearly /s
Looks good, but it's pretty basic. Be interesting to see how this engine will play out. When they start adding in all the different visual effects the true test will begin.
