Gamersyde has uploaded this video showing the new functionalities added to the Unreal Engine 3.
Why does this video take so long to load up? Their video player sucks.
Instant for me : )
Great vid. That swarm didn't look that great though. But I gotta say, those r the best water effects I've seen & the destuctible effects were real good too.
Maybe one day I will have enough money to own both systems. As for the engine upgrade I am impressed but will be even more impressed if non Epic studios will reap the same results.
For those who are thinking that the game in the video is gears 2, its not.
yea its not gears 2 but it features the technologies that will be inside of gears 2. Those destructible environments were nice.
they added some of the tech that Killzone 2 is using.
Man it looks freaking awsome! i love the soft body pysics!
I like the part with all the locust, I can't imagine fighting all of them though.
I agee, but would be cool. Just resaw the vid. the part where he shoots at the water and the barrel is thrown... the whole athmosphere looks freaking AWSOME!
heck yea. those blobs, especially the mercury-looking blob are amazing. they sure upped this engine alot
This video just made all other console shoothers look dated. The soft body physics and the part where they showed off the destructible environment were breathtaking.
the 100 enemies that you saw were assigned some Batch AI and didnt look realistic . Those 100 enemies were basically white patch of swarm if you say.If you want 1000 enemies on screen then look at this http://www.gametrailers.com... also look at the SDK demo of Getaway from SONY last year It had 750 enemies on screen. which part of the DEMO looks as good as Crisis /KZ2? I am not being fanboyish but just tell me
Honestly, the only truly amazing feature was the water physics, it looked great.
you're funny, you even say "not being fanboyish". lol.. If you don't like it, you don't have a 360, so it shouldn't even matter then right??
Haven't seen those types of physics in Killzone 2(soft body, water, lighting, destructible environments). Gears of war has already proven itself as a great game, so most of us know that Gears 2 will be something else. Can't say that about the overhyped Heavenly Sword or the first, also overhyped but better, Killzone. I'm pretty sure Gears of war 2 will be THE shooter of 2008.
remember, this will be dumbed down a little for your precious xbox. The PC version will look the best, the next epic ps3 title second, and gow2 third. We should all be happier though, because the most used engine is advancing, weather or not you have the best hardware to use it. :) PS: umm....the water looked so/so. The ripples were too under-dramatic for the size of the objects interacting. But i guess its better than nothing... I would say uncharted's water looks nicer, so does crysis. But Unreal isn't about water, so it shouldn't matter too much. It will look nice for small puddles. The destructible environments looked pretty, but killzone is doing things like that with much better lighting. I would say the best part of unreal3 engine is the fact that the performance on non specialized PCs is very good with everything it does, as opposed to crysis that looks great, but runs like crap. This new engine version looks to improve graphics by a little, on an already proven engine.
1000? that's it? http://www.gametrailers.com... Please, in the future, the next time you feel like whipping out your e-penis. Do it in the open zone.
I'm talking console shooters, not console games in general or PC games. The demo you saw was running on a 360 so I don't see why it has to be dumbed down. Uncharted has some cool water effects and is a great game. I have to say I was a bit disappointed though. My friend bought a PS3 a couple of days ago and also got Uncharted. Again the water looks stunning, especially on the first stage. What isn't that great is the anti-aliasing. There are lots of jaggies in the textures, and the motion blur when you move the camera isn't that appealing. The controls could need some work as well. Aiming the gun felt kinda floaty and not as good as in many other third person shoot/cover games (GoW, RB6, Graw etc). Still a good game, only not as good as I would expect after reading the PS3 fanboys endless praises. If it was a 360 game I would give it 8/10.
Already been done on the 360 about a year before Heavenly Sword was even thought of. Ever played N3:Ninety Nine Nights?
Got to admit that looks cool. Does UT3 have all those feature too?
I don't think so....
I think Gears will be pretty big this year..just like the first one. anyone who bought the first one will buy the second i guess.. 5 mill is secure and more to come..MS are really good at marketing there own games
the water effects looked real
Wow just wow, Gears of War 2 is just gonna rock from them improvements to the engine alone. I love destroying stuff. ^_^
Holy freakin' hell that's impressive
i have been banned to the open zone:(. Most impressed by the damage system. Personally i thought the water effects could have been better but if gears 2 can guarantee destructible environments like that I AM SOLD BIG TIME. Great job by epic
is on PS3. I think they made this engine especially for PS3.
No, they made this engine especially for all platforms (except the Wii, I guess).
what you saw was running on a Xbox 360 (he says that in de video) though a PS3 shouldn't have a hard time to run it too, since Epic optimized UE3 for PS3 to run UT3
nice advancements to the Unreal Engine. I think you can tell from that, that Gears of War 2 is gonna be good. Soft body enemies can add to the gore and realism factor. And I hope they have a lot of water levels in Gears of War 2, because it looks great.
Just being mature and giving credit to Gears of War 2.
Yes, but you opened up with a stupid ass comment. Seriously take that stuff to the OPEN ZONE.
you should change your name to anything but smart.
i love the unnecessary criticism from this site ftw.
looking very good, imagine bein able to use the torque in multiplayer to blow a hole into the floor so the enemy falls into it trying to kill you, possibilties is endless
is this gonna be implemented in the new gears? cuz if it is.......wow
since they used gears to display it, and it's already in the code, it'd be a real pisser if they were just teasing us. I think it's safe to say this was a quick glimpse of the new gears.
Looking Nice, for whatever platform. Water i liked, agree about ppl onscreen, but if they can improve on amount of ppl at same time etc, its not a bad thing is it? Either way, i liked it.
just leaves me wondering what gears 2 is gonna be like....o the possibilities
Was pretty impressive!
All they did was run straight forward and many got stuck running into the car or whatever it was at the bottom of the screen. There was not any intelligence put there at all. The number was nice but all they were told to do was run forward.
it was just a demonstration of crowd technology, that's it. He didn't say that they were implementing any AI into the demonstration. Stop looking for something to complain about. It was just a demonstration of new tech that's in the Unreal Engine. They weren't demonstrating a fully functional game.
looks great... my most anticipate 360 game
YOU GETTING A 360???? WHAT NOW, I'M GETTING PS3 FOR GOD OF WAR? WAIT, I AM. LOL.
Looks like Devs are starting to finally understand development with Multi core/thread tech.
No if only they learn how to tell a stroy... Jesus....The setting and enviroment is awesome. Just tell the story and stop making me run around not knowing what the hell is going on. Can i have a flash back please? Xbox 360 AAAs for 08- GOWe NG2 Fable 2
The tech they showed was cool, from a gaming perspective. Nice simulation of different materials and substances.
Guys, remember that isn't Gears 2, that's Gears 1 in Multiplayer using the updated engine to do all those effects, you can tell that's Gridlock. The new stuff looks great though, the water is really good and finally some good destructible environments!
The water looked pretty horrible. Other than that, the rest of the features shown look pretty good. I'm still not a fan of the engine, though.
The soft body physics are very well done. That gooey square and the mercury looking thing acted so very realistic.
With so many new engines coming out Epic needs to improve the Unreal engine and it looks like they have done so. I don't think they can improve graphics any more and it looks to me like this demo wasn't about graphics but it was more physics and light. Nice job Epic. The future of gaming is looking very bright.
yeah the new Unreal Engine will be a great addition to next generation games indeed. Got to feel good to be a gamer owning both systems :D This year is my most anticipated year for games on both system...next week it starts with Lost Oddysee (UK) and after that it be Crisis Core and so on so on...more game for pc/ps3/xbox360 the more better I love it ermm great games year indeed for me much better then last years!
the stone just flew in the water so he has psychic abilities noww???? 8D awesome technology, very impressive. I didn't like the mass locus(mmmm) they moved like their had down syndrome.
i have to say that the water effects looked better then uncharted. uncharted's water effects looked just as good until the part where he was shooting at the water which is when it outdid uncharted's very nice though. to be honest, gears 2 reminds me of killzone 2 in third person. both have destructible enviorments. both have a cover system both are futuristic both have excellent graphics. i have to say that this coupled with ninja gaiden 2 might just buy me a 360...................if the hardware is fixed of course
Better quality http://media.xbox360.ign.co...
That was my favorite part of the video. I wish all FPS and TPS had destructible environments that looked that good. The water looked really good too. I'd like to see what it would look like if you shot something in the water and it exploded with those effects.
yea try out waromonger :D
If they really fit that many enemies on screen all at once INGAME i swear i will chainsaw my own head off!!! And to think Unreal Engine 3 is being optimised to take advantage of PS3 tech.
ai was half retarded, i would be impressed if the crowded ones started climbing over the environment and what not instead of bumping back and forth til there was an opening.
everything is looking pretty good. However I think Star Wars the force Unleashed has better physics as far as destructible environments. Needless to say it's a good thing Epic is updating they're unreal engine 3 especially for gears 2, seeing as how the way the engine is starting to look outdated. Looks like the 360 is finally building up a good list of AAA games to compete with the PS3's list. So they say 2007 was a great year for gaming? Pfft.. 2008 is looking much better already.
LOL. Sony fanboys just got brutally assraped. "GEARS 1 ALREADY USES 100% OF 360 POWERS ZOMG!111!1!" lol. owned. stupid fanboys. UT3 who? Exactly. Enjoy it while you can =]
brutally ass raped. sorry but that would be the 360 fanboys my friend.....all the things that have been happening with the ps3 and thier so called predictions. obviously gears 2 shoul improve. now how about we wait until we actually see footage of gears 2 instead of a tech demo for the unreal engine(sure some things will be used in gears however)
Sony fanboys were saying Gears was the most the 360 could handle and Gears 2 would look just like the first. They were even saying it wouldn't be able to handle UT3 as good as the PS3....obviously this just proved them wrong.
CG TECH DEMO. untill i See ingame its not happing.
more than impressive...
Of note... The hordes of onscreen enemies all looked rather tame... They all had the same animations and I noticed a handful who got hung up on objects. Other than that... Water looks amazing destructible environments are just killer the lighting effects were top notch All in all... this is a tech demo and, as we've all seen, Tech Demo's are a little more liberal when showcasing off grandiose effects. I've no doubt Gears of War 2 will be special.. but it still isn't selling me on the overall picture of buying faulty hardware to play it.
