Gamersmint: This isn’t good news for Crytek.
crysis 2 is leaked people :(
I would download this and buy it when it's out(Call me a pirate, I don't care.), but my shi**y graphics card is in right now. This one can hardly play Crysis 1...
Crysis 2 has less hw requirements than original.
"I would download this and buy it when it's out." Haha, I've heard that one so many times.
can't wait for this to leak to torrents i regularly visit. would like to just check it out on my PC
@RedDead Why do you call yourself a pirate/theif, because that is what you are?
And this looks freakin amazing
A pity it's been leaked, but it does look awesome for DX9 and medium settings from an old build Oh, and this http://i.imgur.com/xc2Rz.jp... :P
These screens are only in DX9 32Bit. FAIL.
Lol @ Sarcasm I'll agree with the DX9, but I don't see why you're pointing out 32bit color. That's as far as win7 even supports at this point :p Edit: This just brought up a question for me. 32bit color is as good as it gets currently, but do any console games actually drop it down to 16bit to squeeze out an extra couple fps? @Ravenor HAHA, yeah, wow- didnt' quite put that together. Thanks for pointing that out, however, when talking about the DirectX verion one could assume he was referring to color depth when referring to the bit. I didn't (and still possibly don't) think there are graphic differences between 32 and 64 bit processors, it can just be optimized better to run faster under 64bit. Not being sarcastic, are there examples of games that won't let you turn on graphic features with a 32bit CPU? (Running a 64bit myself for years, so never realized this could hold people back)
i wonder how many people that like to call out the game pirates have crap tons of "stolen" mp3's on their computer...or copyrighted pictures, plagiarism for school, not reported their internet purchases to their government so they can pay taxes...
@Motion Omfg, it's running the 32bit executable of the game not the 64 bit version. Nothing to do with colour.
I was wondering why it didn't look very impressive! Running on lower grade hardware! I'm sure the full version will destroy this, resurrect it, just to destroy it again... then beat it like a dead horse! Doesn't 360 support DX9? Serves Crytek right for not releasing video of the PC version on high settings for so long! Now they have this low grade crap floating around making them look bad! I just don't like the way they sold out PC gamers for MS dollars!
^^^Are you retarded or just an idiot?
"Visual design is stillpretty generic." No it isn't. It is going for a realistic look. You PS3 fanboys have a really strange taste in games. It's like you want everything to look like a cartoon. The two best looking games on the PS3 have a stylized cartoony look. I'm not saying it is bad to have that style, but I don't want every game to look like that. I like Crysis 2's more realistic approach to graphics.
Can we all finally agree that Crysis 2 is one of the best looking games.
I'm not saying we all want games that look like cartoons. But at least be MORE CREATIVE and don't make the visuals BORING! Also, if you were referring to KZ3 back there, it's not cartoony: http://killzone.dl.playstat... http://killzone.dl.playstat... Crysis 2 is a sci-fi game, they could have made it less plain and generic. You know, a slightly more artistic design, rather than just focusing on the high specs.
I'm impressed, not because the game looks amazing on PC. It's the fact that this game is most definitely run on decent PC hardware settings. I fear of what would happen if a full rig were to run this game, Crysis 1 wouldn't even BEGIN to compare. -End of Line
Shingino....It is cartoony but so are many other games including Rage. Crysis 2 makes me think about the next Half Life.
I am so dissapointed. I feel absolutely Enraged. The massive respect I have for this company makes me wish i could pay them back. Good luck crytek I will be buying this Upon release, whenever that may be. Regardless you will have the money you earned. Sorry.
Here is another gameplay video. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Keep in mind that this is using fairly middle of the road settings on PC. That said, it is utterly amazing how good it looks. No other game comes close.
But I have to admit from the videos I've seen so far of crysis 2, it looks pretty sick! I know I'm gonna pick it up a few months down the road.
@kharma45 lol thats how most pc gamers really feel smh
^^ yeah, right. Underlining the superiority complex. LOL. Good job. I am a controller guy (and Move lately). If I could link that to my PSN account I would possibly get it on the PC. But not for the SP campaign only. I hate playing against you M/KB freaks. Better stick with my controller.
32 bit vs. 64 bit = no difference in graphics. Why? Your talking about CPUs and not GPUs. Graphical baseline is reliant on GPU API and Hardware. Console vs. PC right now its Open GL 2/3 for Nintendo and Sony and DirectX 9.0 for X360. PC has DirectX 9, 10, 11, Open GL, and others. Does X360 support 32-bit DirectX 9.0. Yes it does. PC does as well. Honestly these shots in DirectX 9.0 can't really be measured up with no real way of comparing these shots. DirectX 10/DirectX 11 version will have sharper graphically image than both console versions I expect.
@DeadlyFire: It does make a difference because 32bit Windows will only utilize between 3 and 3.5GB of RAM between the motherboard an the video card.
No its early beta version.
just downloading. will review when finished
my penis leaked.
You should get that checked out. Might need a Z-pac.
So vulgar. Umm.
did you mean yumm?
wow its leaked on the day my gtx 580 gets here how perfect. edit: hory shet its downloading at 4 KB per second and its 9 gigs. fml seed people seed
dont do that you douche have some respect. you give pc a bad name
He gives PC a bad name?.. thats were piracy usually generates from -_-
@reed im still gunna buy the game dumbass is it wrong to want to try it out early like 360 gamers got to? stfu
dear video game writers, the words you use to describe the way good graphics look are way over par. Never has a videogame screen "Blown my mind" or could be described as "out of this world" i think the simplicity with words like 'great' would work very well to describe any game
exaggerated for hits
Agreed Go green but I must admit the one game that blew me away was Half Life 2 when it was demonstrated years back at E3 for the 1st time.
The graphics shown in those pictures were not at maximum settings considering that it was running on dx9. I believe this game has dx11 too so there should be a massive leap in polygon count because of tessellation and other things.
OMG!! and the intro is Awesome... Bubble a Player up for finding the link for you.. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Wow, I can't wait for this game.. -:) This Game is going to be Awesome .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
It'd blow my mind if I had a mind to blow! ...Hey wait... Whu?
That is incredible. I'm sorry, I love Killzone 3 beta, but this blows it away in the scale, the quality of the effects, the lighting, the detail in the modelling of the objects, etc.
Pffft. That's it?
and not the final build of the game. And by the looks of it, they're making pretty good progress.
not that it doesn't looks good, don't misunderstand. "It will blow your mind" in title made me have the same reaction as SonyNGP. it didn't blow mine, if anything looks really generic with really low grade art design movie at 11, big news
Beta build, plus it's only DX9. There's DX10 and 11 in the final builds, all with even more graphical goodies than the last.
My PC just PP'd...
@Pandamobile Yes, I was going to say that, it is DX9 Version and Beta build. @SonyNGP DX10 and DX11 version will do justice to the phrase ''blow your mind''
Yeah not "blow my mind' impressive but like everyone said it's only direct x 9. However I hope the code is more optimized this time around because DX 11 so far is a resource hog. You need a pretty powerful rig to run it efficiently.
"However I hope the code is more optimized this time around because DX 11 so far is a resource hog" No it's not. It has been used in certain games and shown that it IMPROVES performance. I think Stalker COP was an example of this. The only time it is more taxing on the hardware seems to be when you run Tessellation.
Note the shots that say DX9 medspec, highspec? Medium settings, High settings? Very high, DX11 would be maximum. Also note the polygon count. The highest seen there is just shy of a million, around about the same number Uncharted 2 can push. Even the original Crysis in 2007 on maximum settings peaked at over 3 million. It wouldn't be a stretch to imagine this will be able to push even more. Thus these shots aren't going to be representative of the game in its full glory. Still looks pretty decent even in DX9 medium IMO, much like the other crysis games...
There's some shots floating around of the DX9 high-spec. http://lulzimg.com/i12/6ca1... http://lulzimg.com/i12/b4d0... http://lulzimg.com/i12/1cd3... http://lulzimg.com/i12/1ebf... Looks pretty damn good for DX9.
Thanks for the screens Panda. Looks awesome.
Panda, Killzone 3 looks better. :p
hey sup guys the game looks kool . never really wer much of a pc gamer what would u say is the best lap top to buy for ur money to play these ? and of anything desktop thanks ..
Do NOT buy a laptop for gaming, their battery life is horrid (thus making it stationary anyway) and the hardware just isn't powerful enough. A meduim range desktop will blow a very high-end laptop to pieces. I suggest getting the cheaper sandybridge processor (intel), a Geforce GTX 560 Ti (SLI?)OR GTX 570, 4-6GB of DDR3 RAM and have a decent HDTV or a 1080p desktop display (23"-24"). All of that can be gotten for between 650 and 1000 if you shop around and make for the best price/performance ratio for your budget.
Crysis games usually look even better in motion. Being honest, killzone 2 does not. Some games look better in static shots, some games look even better in motion. Crysis is one of the latter, the post processing object based blur etc makes the game look terrific when you get down and play it, things you cant see in static shots. Its quite one thing seeing static shots and another having the game sat in front of you running a gorgeously high resolution, immaculate anti aliasing, super smooth framerate with perfect motion blur. This game will be spectacular even with less than maximal settings, i guarantee it
Your shots look much better than the ones from the article! Crysis was always that game that made me want to get a high end PC! First time I saw the tech demo video on my crappy PC that could hardly play it, I was astounded! But then I just end up buying a TV!
Now if only we could get some non-JPEG raped images it'd be great.
I don't get it. How do these shots not look generic. You can pump the res all you want, at the end of the day, it still looks flat. Crytek totally lacks creativity in their environmental design. Current world with SiFi weapons? Don't you think if you can build a nano suite, brick and mortar buildings would be a thing of the past???
All these people saying its generic, environment is generic etc ITS SET IN NEW YORK CITY YOU IDIOTS. So you walk around a city pointing out buildings saying ooooh thats generic, look at that generic water tower! Generic! Generic! If we can build a spacecraft why aren't all these boring historical brick and iron buildings be flattened so we can build new ones out of carbon fibre and titanium? Why even have Grand Central left with dated old stone, lets build a floating station out of broken Xbox 360s and melted down HD DVDs just because we can! THE GAME IS TRYING TO DEPICT A CITY. I am sure that there will be plenty of other interesting places to go, plenty of interesting alien occurances. However everyone has known for years now this is urban warfare on earth. Get the fuck over it and stop screaming generic every ten seconds.
It just doesn't match up. If you want to be historic be historic. Or if you want to be scifi, well use your imagination. But this selective "evolution" tries to do both. Just makes it shallow.
Dont be utterly ridiculous Ju. You are suggesting it is to be set in a crazy sci fi city even though the events of the first game and thus this take place in the next 10-20 years. The game is about more advanced experimental human technology but not human ray guns and flying cars. If you think that all of New York would be utterly transformed into this sci fi city in the next 15 years you are going to be disappointed. This game is about the blend of aliens, sci fi and the contrast to a slightly more advanced humanity. Its only a game after all. Moaning that old buildings should not exist in the near future is a preposterous statement to make
No. w/e. I just think crysis is as generic as any other action shooter with a shallow story. They didn't even invest to come up with more than some aliens landed on planet earth or packaged that into any complex side story. This is basically all you get. So hype crysis for the pretty graphics all you want but the story sucks like any other.
I had the same reaction as Sony NGP. I suppose if this is a DX9 beta that's something, but you'd think that THE SEQUEL TO CRYSIS(!) would be a great leap from the graphical benchmark set by the original. People were saying that CGI-looking trailer awhile back was actually in-game PC version and shit. I hate to be one of "those guys", but this looks like it was horribly gimped by consoles.
You PS3 fanboys need to cut it with your biased commentary. Watch this http://www.youtube.com/watc... and if you can't see how utterly amazing that is then you are hopelessly deluded and in denial.
