The Gamer.tv team take a behind the scenes trip to Free Radical's to show the work that is going into the development of PS3 shooter Haze.
Definitely has caught my attention now.
The story and concept all seem pretty good, as long as the gameplay and graphical performance prove solid, this should be one heck of an FPS. Though I've never been as much of a FPS person as I am RPG, I just might make an exception for this game.
Is that an Xbox 360, or a 360 development SKU at 16:13?
Looks like they placed a cup of coffee or tea and a telephone on top of the 360.
I'm guessing they need the 360 kits for Timesplitters 4, or the unannounced LucasArts title.
At work we have a stack of the original xbox dev kits, but we are hardly using them any more. It could be leftover from the early stages of production on Haze.
I wonder if this game will be any good at all. it has been delayed to work with the PS3's specs therefore being canceled on the 360. Let's hope they pull this one off even though it will be hard to compete with Killzone 2.
It doesn't have to compete with or beat any other game. It jsut has to be a good game in it's self and it'll be fine.
Anyways, I'm not about to foolishly think that the developers responsible for incredible FPS games like Goldeneye and Timesplitters will all of a sudden make a FPS that won't be decent or just a mediocre experience.
HAZE will be incredible, the only thing is, should editorial reviewers low ball it with 7s & 8s, will gamers still support it or sheepishly follow editorial reviews yet again.
Will be competing with COD4 and UT3 not KZ2.
Has some uniqueness to do good business but hoping it has usable aircraft and tanks to challenge UT3.
blackout monday dont support gamespot support jeff day!
-.- Jeff was an ass so ... WTF ever dude. Don't condone his firing but he's still an ass.
Jeff could've committed a crime for all we know. Maybe we shall wait for a proper explanation before judging the actions of a company.
Gamespot will NEVER tell the truth! We already know why he was fired, asshole or not, it's not right.
the explenation of jeffs firing isnt probably coming big companies dont like to talk about employees
This game is incredible! Wow.
It's not best looking game i've evr seen but the gameplay seems solid with an 4 co-op mode online/offline, with Nectar and Rebels...
Wait & See
P.S: Are they playing 360 or they develloped for it ? XD
Guessing they had it because it was originally to be made for PC/360/PS3 - but now it's a PS3 exclusive.
the game actually looks better imo. looks better than most of the fps's out there but its generally wat to expect frm these generation of games. graphics arent mind blowing but they are solid
and they were using it as a coaster for their coffee mugs
Average - Everytime i see this game i hope to see something that will remove that thought, But average is all that comes to mind. I`m just not sure about this one. It doesn`t grab me as being an immersive Fps, just a gimmicky bog standard shooter.
Hopefully new media is released that maybe shows the first 10 minutes!? Maybe it can redeem itself somehow.
Definitely on the fence for this one at the moment.
Is it only me who thinks that the graphic look's horrible!?
i think it looks ok. its no uncharted or HS or Killzon2 but more important seems the question if it wil lbe fun to play. i think it looks fun.
Graphics aside to be honest won`t make this game better if it has slow and boring gameplay. Graphics aren`t important for me, yes they help in creating a good atmosphere but if the game is pants it could glitter like golden breast`s but still be boring to play with......... actually i take that back ;).
I thought the graphics look awesome. I can't wait for this game to come out..
What makes you say the graphics are not top notch ? I think they are pretty good. Lush environments, I see no slow down, good particle effects and nice detail level. The guns are smoking after you fire the weapon. But, well, the resolution is not high enough and playing is believing I guess. But from what I see, it doesn't make a bad impression to me. Actually, the more I see, the more it moves up on my list. Probably above UT3, now. The gameplay looks intense, too. These ship and mine levels look pretty good, IMO. That cargo bay is fantastic.
do your self a favour and invest your cash in UT3. with the MoD support you'll be playing UT for months!
Haze seems to have many interesting ideas, but i`m not sure if they`re executed well enough.
The graphics seems pretty good in the jungle, but very bland in the more industrial areas. The framerate was a bit unstable too, but i`m sure Free Radical will tight that up before it`s release. I didn`t get a Wow feeling from the gameplay either, but given FR`s history i feel i should give them the benefit of the doubt somehow, even though the could be said of the Lair, before the game was out.
So, i think i have to try before i buy (Haze), but it could turn out great, and i`m glad they`ve added more time for polishing up the game. 4 player co-op sounds cool, and can`t wait to see that in action.
LOL its youtube quality video... u cant really judge because this is defiantely not how Haze will look in HD.. gameplay looks good... we will have to wait and see.
I've changed my mind about haze, it's shaping up to be fantastic
this looks a lot more solid then the previous builds, cant wait to play it!
and the mantel guys say boosh, is that a frisky dingo reference?
premise of the gameplay seems fresh and new. This is definitely a rental for me, maybe a buy after that we shall see.
They finaly released some info on the game besides those dumb nectar interviews. Graphics look decent, Gameplay uhhh questionable, probably woudve bought it looking at the video, but now its not if its good or not its will you purchase it over or with side a game like killzone. I believe they lost a lot of sales delaying this in the realm of killzone. They probably banking on killzone delays, but seeing how Sony is making it, which has the best experience with their tech it probably will at most be like a month late.
I guess PS3 is another shooter console. Anyway, I bet this game averages 8.5.
I dunno if I'll be getting this, but I do love FPS games.
The game is looking alright, not sure if I will buy it for my PS3. I would rather have more Killzone 2 news tbh.
This game reminds me of Red Faction for some reason.
But hey, that game didn't get the best scores in the world, but I really liked playing it.
Wow, this is looking brilliant. the geeza with the mic is at times a bit annoying but great video. i hope it comes to otehr formats too, FPS with 360 controller is much more enjoyable. i hope there is a good multiplayer element on PS3.
nice game, cant wait to play it.
Looks like the game's focused more on game-play than fancy graphics (it's a good thing), though graphics looks pretty good, too.
My interest piqued due to all the features, game-play focus, and Free Radical's reputation.
I see a solid game coming together from these guys.
i'll be well immeresed in some pretty above average graphics, this video interview only helped to solidify my reasons to have this game pre order.
it looked even more stable than the last build and runs alot more smoothly. the hot swap online coop is cool and the fact that haze will be streaming the entire game so there will be no load times. and after playing uncharted i cant really see my self thoroughly enjoying a game that doesn't support no loading consistent streaming.
which is a nother reason why i think the game was canceled for 360, their streaming teck was built to take full advantage of the HDD in every PS3 thus enabling them to create and cache data to the HDD much the same way uncharted Does to allow a consistent uninterrupted story mod perfect for delivering an engrossing and well thought out naritive. so the fact that not all 360 have the HDD it would have made that job impossible. load times would be at a minimum but it would still have a load time which would be taking away from the seamless experience.
i cant wait just make sure that You hit us up with a demo on the PSN in end of December so it would give us some time to get a great feel for the game when it comes early january...
after that. you will be in prime position to sell well enough because january and feb are like dead months for gaming.
im probably buying haze..and dont worry because killzone 2 is coming in november...not february.
...and even if would come out at the same time, I'd probably go with both. Resistance(2?), Haze, KZ2. That will be my shooter library. And if none of those will have bots, I'll add UT3 - but then, I started Warhawk again, which will rank up again with additional content.
Lol. Same here, man. Those three will be my definite shooters for next year unless another great shooter like COD4 comes along, then I'm gonna have to stretch my list a little bit.
Devs can account for the 360's which don't have hard drives, Sony just gave Ubisoft alot of money to make it exclusive for the PS3. Nothing to do with streaming via the HDD.
I also don't think they have cancelled the 360 and PC version, all that work just being gone? All that money spent, nah, it probaly will come to 360 and PC but maybe end of 2008 or even in 2009. This game could be another reason to own a PS3, it could not.
Don't forget that they are now working on timespitters 4 and their mystery lucasarts title. I don't know if they're a big enough studio to develop two titles while porting another. We shall have to wait and see.
They've already officially announced that Haze is exclusive to PS3. No, not just a timed exclusive, but a full blown exclusive. They had planned on a 360 version, but it has since been dropped.
Did anyone ever look at timesplitters and think "WOW!!"? No, it was something that you grew to love through playing. I expect this will be similar. It seems to be quite HALO-esque in the fact that it appears to be very solidly made with a great multiplayer. However it seems to be a bit more grounded in reality, with a dystopian future instead of sci-fi fantasy. Plus the story may well be deeper than it appears, relating strongly to modern day ethics of war and morality issues.
So it seems to have a great multiplayer with mission-based games, a great singleplayer story, and instant online 4 player co-op to boot. Add in the fact that they are claiming that there are no loading screens in single player and it sounds like it could be a top quality title.
Got this game paid off before the delay. It doesn't matter, UT3 and COD4 will fill the gap till Haze's release. Can't wait to play co-op online. Great way to start my 2008 lineup :)
Man, I can't wait for play this game on single campaign and Online. look awesome'.
Looks sweet.. Im excited about coop mode
This game has started to look really awesome to me, but i dont know what i should get, UT3 or Haze, i dont want to get both because id never have enough time to play online for both games, but this is looking like a great game none the less.
I'd like to try Haze first, to be honest. But UT3 is out earlier. What really makes Haze interesting is its 4 player cooperative mission mode (online ?).
I'd like to know more about that, but I would guess, this would mean you'll never play the "single" player twice - if everybody can join you online, and your team actually will change every time you play. That's kind a awesome.
I would, however, like to know, if Haze will feature bots in its multi player mode. If not, the only one so far is Graw2, AFAIK - and UT3.
Is this even possible in COD4, UT3, Halo 3 or even Killzone 2?
Also the animations and graphics is Haze look awesome now...since we are seeing later builds in the video...I think the reason why it was delayed was because they want it to be perfect....There is no reason why they should release it until they are really done. The key is do not rush a game until it is done.....can we say assassins creed?
Haze will be out in January 2008....Killzone 2 will be out in September 2008.....GTA4 will be out in March 2008....Little Big Planet will be out in Feburay 2008....I am just predicting.....
This game is looking good.
i was alwasys interested in haze but wasnt sure till i saw this video looks alot better then the ones befor and 4 player online game play is gonan be nice! killzone2 will most likely crush haze. but last i saw release was like june or july 08 was feb but alot web sites have it pushed back till summer
Great looking game! Let's hope it will be a good game!
I saw the origins video a few days ago and it just blew me away. I was very impressed with the look and style of the game. Hopefully the story and gameplay are as good as that.
Haze really is going to be good. For some time I was wondering what was going on but now Haze is back on my radar. I can't wait to play online it should be really fun.
But probably won't happen.
I'm a diehard Mercenaries and Halo fan and believe a shooter broadens its appeal with a usuable buggy, tank, aircraft combo....especially for online MP.
Did someone say Warhawk?
Fingers crossed for Haze and KZ2. Bring on the vehicles.
looks good to me.
I spot a NES on the table @@
Haze has not been delayed its coming out in 07 of this month around the same time as unreal.
haze is comming out in jan08 was posted a few times i called today to get it preorder they even said was delayed till jan
I dont know what to get?
I only can pick 2, cause i want to enjoy each one. Someone help?
As for the other, it is a toss up between Haze and UT3, but I would say Haze for the story alone. But if multiplayer is your thing, go for UT.
Unless you want split-screen multiplayer, which for me is almost essential in a shooter. I don't yet know if UT3 is supporting split-screen but it doubt it, being a PC-based title.
The part where the aircraft drops off the buggy is the biggest Halo ripoff ever
Like Halo was the first. Whatever.
I like what they use their Xbox 360s for... A coffee heater.
its a pretty long video but some of it was cool
am really liking this game, the fast pace of it, quick melee,nectar,playing dead,4 player co-op online and off,gfx. everything looks very good.
Wow, gotta love those bad ass movie style cinematics, makes you feel ur in the army :D
I have been looking forward to Haze for a long time. I've been a fan of Free Radical for ages and was hoping that they bring their usual quality gameplay to this new title.
Just recently as time has gone on I've been getting more and more wary of the title. The delays for 1 are definately doing this game no good. Obviously noone wants to play a game riddled with Bugs but if FR could have released on time they would have done a lot better for themselves in my eyes. Now Haze will go up against the likes of UT3 and if we're lucky KZ2 and I don't think it's going to do too well with these 2 behemoths on the horizon.
This new video has definately given me more hope in the game and I really do want the game to be a knockout but I think FR may end up releasing it at the wrong time.
I honestly hope that I am wrong!
