Crytek aims to create “the best-looking game that’s ever been made” with Crysis 3, a goal the studio believes it’s “well on the way” to achieving.
Hey... It's not all about looks... Trust me, I know because I'm just so sexy. I suppose we'll see though, after all... Crysis 2 apparently didn't have hardly any video customization for PC. Which was a huge downer. Hopefully the third game will be better about that.
I hate the fact that people will start moaning and bitching about Crytek being showoffs and hyping their product, but honestly the guy in interview came as rather humble guy. Its nice to hear what they are aiming for this late in generation, and just the fact that they are using every AA there is for PC version and SMAA T2x AA method on consoles attests to the fact that they are really ambitious about the project.
Agreed. Clearly Crytek are striving to push the boundaries and that much is evident from their past work unlike a slew of other developers who churn out hollow statements that they are "'pushing the consoles to their limits" etc. To be able to push the boundaries of development for PC whilst simulatenously doing the same for consoles is no mean feat. Developing for consoles might not be holding the PC version of Crysis 3 back afterall.
I'm fine with Crytek aiming to push hardware features....but after Crysis 2 they need to worry about these areas too.....the game really bored me outta my mind... 1)Story 2)Gameplay
whats ambitious about making pretty graphics? i'm sorry to burst your bubble but gaming isn't about graphics never has been. if you don't have good gameplay outlined with a good story, then all it is, is a pretty piece of trash.
Maybe because the point of this news are graphics and not gameplay? Besides, Crytek always goes for free and non restricting gameplay. If Crysis games aren't games that push FPS gameplay than I don't know what is. Maybe MOH, COD or KZ...
I look forward to Crysis 3. Everybody else can be a downer if they want. Funny part is, they don't have to buy it if they don't want to, yet they really want to publicly complain.
Maybe they're ambitious because there's not a lot of games out there with great looking graphics still. I could probably name a few while all the rest are only average looking to crap.... And personally, graphics matter to me equally as much as gameplay.
Hey Crytek, no pressure, but seeing as how no matter how good it looks there will always be nay-sayers who will troll and lynch you for even making such a claim you better be sure it was worth it
Crytek deserve more respect. Yes, as a PC gamer, I was disappointed that they didn't build DirectX11 features right into the game from the start, but all was well in the end. The fact remains that Crysis and Crysis 2 are still two of the best looking games to this day. Furthermore, I think the games are actually a ton of fun to play. Way better than the average linear shooter that plays out the same exact way almost every time you play a certain section. I like that Crysis gives you a higher degree of freedom about how you want to tackle obstacles.
If you're getting your entertainment not from engaging gameplay or even story, but from graphics and graphics mods then... gaming... you're doing it wrong!
Here we go again, why do game companies say stuff like this... -just show your game, don't tell me how good it looks, SHOW ME! all this does is build the hype and then when that game-play trailer comes out everyone goes, "oh doesn't look that much different from 2" Trust me Just show the Game, if it's that good you don't need to talk about it, you should just show it.. Example A: Bioshock Infinite - Now that game is looking Amazing...(they didn't talk at all about graphics, they just showed 20 minutes of In-Game) Lesson to Game companies, Gamers are not dumb, if it Looks that good then why don't you just show it.. Let's see actually Game-play for 10 minutes. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
Im more concerned if the game aims to be good. Fucko on the graphics if the game isnt fun.
"Hey... It's not all about looks... Trust me, I know because I'm just so sexy. " That made me chuckle more than necessary.
agreed to a certain extent..... but it has always been a balance between having good looks and gameplay... And quite honestly Crysis 2 was also fun. There was enough customization in the menus to make crysis PC look the best in terms of graphics at its time
Here we go again, lets spoonfeed how great our EA game is going to be, they did the same with Crysis 2, "its the BEST lookin console game to date" we know how that turned out Better graphics mean nothin if the gamer falls over on his face in sheer bordem, i beat Crysis 2 in under 8 hours (on Hard) it felt a "little" like Terminator Salvation (the game) there must of only been 3-4 different types of enemy, i constantly felt like i was doin the same thing thing over and over
What do you mean "here we go again"? Judging by the screen-shots and the size of this game the graphics are definitely the best I've seen this whole gen. Use your eyes please thank you.
On Consoles ? I highly doubt that, they said that about Crysis 2 and while it was def a good looking game, it wasn't "THE BEST". Anyway, I believe they focus too much on visuals and not enough on Gameplay. However I like Crysis 2 (I enjoyed the multiplayer A LOT.
Will we get something remotely playable from this graphic feast Crytek, or will I be relegated to playing a 14fps visual masterpiece? I'm all for epic graphics, and the PC will no doubt be solid, but can we console folk please get some performance stability?
what you are talking about? i thought the frame rates were pretty solid on console version imo.
WTF? are you serious.The framerate was terrible,the screen tearing was terrible the game was so boring that I gave up trying to finish it.The game loooked ridiculious on the PC but thats all the credit I can give these guys.They just need to worry about gameplay and making the story enteresting and fun to play and stop going on about how great this game is going to look.Crysis 2 did nothing for myself or others who had faith in these guys.I will just stick to playing games that are a sure thing.Pretty games dont make games great the overall package does.We will see once Feb 2013 comes around how the finished product will actually turn out and hopefully they can get it right this time.It almost a year away.
It seemed pretty playable on console to me with the occasional drop in fps when things got really mad. There is no comparison with the PC version of course but it was impressive to see it in action on consoles.
Cryteks state of mind is as following- "I'm sexy and i know it"
They need to up ai, I want to see ai so good I can't tell he is live or not
Don't expect to see that this gen. Takes way too much computational power to simulate an artificial intelligence. Next Gen-consoles will be very interesting though :)
Crysis 1 had way more inteligent AI than crysis 2. If they use the AI form crysis 1 I will be VERY happy.
doubt it! the next gen consoles will be no better than the latest computer technologies. It really depends on the developer as to how much further they want to push the AI.. Some games are designed on purposeto have bad AI to make it have nice generic fun! I see more and more games shifting over to lack of AI why because more and more games will focus on multiplayer
Dead Space did that perfectly, one never really knew if those abominations from space were/are dead until the last moment. Gets me every time!
Well, lets hope the scale is larger than crysis 2, They arent proving this wrong with anything yet, I would like levels that are bigger than two city blocks.
didn't like the gameplay so much from any Crysis... wonder why...
You guys should see the hate this game is getting on Youtube. It looks just like Crysis 2 IMO.
Dark crysis 2 DLC
How about making a game that's fun to play? Crysis is so meh.
"To be able to push the boundaries of development for PC whilst simulatenously doing the same for consoles..." Crytek isn't pushing the boundaries for consoles, some ps3 exclusives look better than Crysis 2..
you mean on consoles ..right ??? well i agree if you mean that and they can't push any system because they are not working on one system they work on 3 systems at once with a multiplat engine they did the same thing with crysis 2 give ps3/pc a port from xbox the only thing that saved the pc version was the high res pack they didn't even put DX11 for crysis2 untill after the launch i will never trust them again
sure, on consoles...pc graphics is on another level..
meh .. maybe i will buy the pc version when the price drop
Crysis 2 ran/looked like crap on consoles. Hopefully this will be better.
Get a pc derp?
waste of money derp?
Sure sure Crytek, but what about the fact that the grain glitch that you acknowledged but never fixed on 360 made Crysis 2 look like a low quality streamed video.
Just so you know, good-looking (in the title) is wrong. Its good looking with NO hyphen. :)
That sounds pretty good to me! But it will make my graphics card cry. Well, I guess next year I will upgrade it.
Checklist for a successfull Crysis 3 1.) Bring back the open gameplay of Crysis 1. 2.) Bring back the very smart AI from Crysis 1. (I dont understand why AI was so dumb in crysis 2...) 3.) Develope a better more gripping narrative. 4.) Be in a wooded area or jungle!
Crysis of Duty: Nano Warfare 3 I'll pass on this. I don't care how good the graphics look. Crysis 2 was BORING. I don't play games to walk around and look at bricks and leaves up close. I play to have fun and if the game ain't fun, the graphics aren't going to make it fun.
deffo won't consider buying it day one anyways. Crysis 2 was a heap of shit at launch. Multiplayer would not work. The upgrade system wouldn't save, meaning you'd come back to the game the next day (probobly being about half way through the game) then all your special abilities would be gone. So you'd have to collect all the friggin nano xp again. Not to mention the DX 11 patch. What? I can't have that AT launch? Oh yeah. can't have the console gamer feeling fucked over right? Oh what's that? You'll release it as a 'gift' when it should've been there to begin with? By the time it released I'd finished with the game. I can't have any graphics options which crysis 1 had? Isn't this game supposed to be a better game? Mate, i'm playing a fuckin dx9 game which is a sequel to THE dx10 benchmarker. WTF!
I think it will be between Crysis 3 and Metro Last Light.
i hope the pc version looks the best looking game ever made. i cant wait!
how about "best game play" game ever? Just cause it's pretty don't mean it doesn't have the possibility of being a turd. I hope with all the attention they are putting on visuals they put the same towards game play PS if you're so great Crytek make it run 60fps on consoles while you're at it
As long as they don't BS the PC version, it can do fine. I mean come on, they released the PC DX11 patch MONTHS after the game. So long that I gave up on even trying to DL the patch. It was as if the game was rushed or they put more emphasis on the consoles than where they originated: PC.
I hated Crytek for releasing a DX9 PC game in the form of Crysis 2. How many months of agony did they make me wait to before I can play it in its full DX11 glory. Shit!
Ran beautifully well on xbox so i'm assuming running crap on console comments aren't for this machine?
Personally i think Crytek do something altogether different with their light and it's strikingly better than other efforts i'v seen. Even though a multi engine, Crysis2 does look exceptionally good and this doesn't sound like an empty promise from them at all
The game does have some rather sloppy ai and obvious gameplay flaws that need to be addressed however but i expect big from this if these issues are sorted
If 'beautifully well on XBox' means texture pop-in, physics-less corpses, grain glitch and dumb AI, then sure. The new trailer with gameplay footage looks just like Crysis 2 but with more gray-blue tint. Expansion pack trailer at best. The editing didn't help. Lousy 1st impression considering the gameplay they showed doesn't back up the 'best looking evah' quotes they cut to from magazines sucking up for swag bags. Crysis 1 was better imho.
Indeed regards to a couple visual drawbacks but the framerate on xbox was consistent. I very much like the first game too and feel it's better in the obvious ways but there are also aspects i like too with the sequel- despite some really obvious failings concerning bloody stupid ai running against walls etc and it being way too easy. 3 i think will address issues and combine both previous games into a great 3rd entry. Hope so anyway
If they want it to be the best looking game ever... it had better stay on PC!
They can work for both consoles and PC. They just better not give PC gamers the short end of the stick.
Careful Crytek. Yes, it's nice to see them striving for pushing things. However, the last time I checked, their MP on C2 suffered. It fell apart from the get-go. If they don't support the product fully, what's the point in just pushing it, then leaving it dangling?
"best looking game on consoles" The PC version will look no better than crysis 1
What? How can you assume that?
1) EA 2) Consoles You may think they are 'pc elitist' comments, but just look at what EA does to popular game franchises to try and squeeze that little bit extra money, they have made pretty much every popular franchise become worse and worse due to marketing decisions. And I think we can all agree that EA are going to try keep the budget as low as possible. And the 'consoles' argument, unless EA have largely increased the team working on crysis, they aren't going to have the man power or time to get the high poly counts, textures, ai, programmers, and all the other stuff that is required to get this game to push top end PCs to the max. Again, this also includes a high budget which I extremely doubt EA will provide.
Crysis 2 looked the same as 1. and from watching that trailer crysis 3 looks more like a dumb addon to crysis 2.
EA have published some of the best looking PC games on the market right now. They had no problem pushing PCs with BF3, or the original Crysis. Crysis 2 was Crytek's first foray into console development, and I'd say they did alright considering the fact that were developing the engine alongside the game. Even though Crysis 2 was a bit disappointing compared to Crysis 1, it was still a pretty damn good game, and it looked gorgeous even before the DX11 upgrade.
again the same comments as last year...pff. Come on. Knock it off.
I never knew so many people could hate Crytek so much..
Too bad The Witcher 2 will still look better than this. Anyways, i'm going to win a few millions in the lottery. /s
Its not a a PS3 exclusive so this a dead on arrival.
Crytek better make the PC the lead development platform this go-around. Crysis 2 runs like ass on my rig, while Battlefield 3 runs at 50-60 fps @ 1080p resolution with all settings on Ultra. Maybe they should give DICE a call...
And there is the problem. They claimed this with crysis2 and it was neither the best looking or even close to being the best game. I fear Crytek put way too much emphasis on graphics and way too little on gameplay. Hey Crytek, how about trying to make a good game first?
crysis 3 is NOT going to be on ps3 and 360, if it is, it will look just like crysis 2 did on console, this will be a next gen and pc game
the pc version will look AMAZING!!
Crytek never learn a multiplat game never beat the exclusives in terms of visuals...
