"After a couple of hours with the controller in-hand, Dirt 5 seems to be an absolute buffet of off-road racing flavors, even if there’s not as much of a next-gen sheen to it as I was hoping for." | Ryan McCaffrey, IGN
The trailer is getting killed on social media. There is nothing next gen....
i've posted this before, its a Dirt game, it never has push the boundaries on graphics or gameplay, this trailer is not surprising honestly. We are going to have to look to other games for next gen feel, but early on i imagine most games will just be higher fps, best we can hope for early on is fast loading and maybe RT patches.
This is Motorstorm meets Dirt. Should not even carry the name Dirt. Don't even know why Codemasters releases 2 ralley games with the same name (Dirt (casual) and Dirt Ralley (hardcore)). This is part of Dirt DNA but more so OnRush and Motorstorm with a Dirt name (since this is basically built on the MS/OnRush engine). But with that said, I think there is a lot of Motorstorm heritance visible, it is a missed opportunity. What made Motorstorm so great was the physics and destruction. This could have been a total showcase for next gen (like that ralley cross mode). Hopefully this can be polished some more. And get rid of that useless 120fps mode. WTH is that for?
This is supposed to be the first Xbox series x game running on that system. You would think they would show something a little more impressive,. Having said that, it’s not bad either. Just nothing special.
What Was Microsoft thinking.... Sony doesnt need to do nothing.... The game is terrible...
@waverider you know dirt5 isn't made by Microsoft right?...
Neither is Godfall...what's more next gen, though?
I have yet to hear anything positive about next-gen games performance on the XSX. Only positive reviews so far have been about BC games. Hopefully things aren't as bad as they seem, for competition sake.
I think they just keep showing off the wrong games. Why not some of The Medium? Hell I'm sure they could at least show off some sort of gameplay from one of the games releasing next year. Like Scorn for example. That game has been in development for years. They could make a small demo to show off what the system is capable of.
Maybe like Dirt it doesnt look or feel next gen. I think the Medium is, but I think it may run at 30 fos and could ruin their image.
I don’t know why people disagree with you Scorn has been in development for several years now! They need to look 👀 at those gameplay videos on Steam or on YouTube the gameplay is there!
@Ashunder They disagree because I'm not praising what we are seeing here.
I think MS strategy backfired. The were putting everything into the frame rate games. More fps, more frames, more...but you can't sell that on Youtube. Fidelity you can. Happened with Halo and now with Dirt with a big emphasis on 120fps which is pretty much useless for that next gen.
@affrogamer "I have yet to hear anything positive about next-gen games performance on the XSX. Only positive reviews so far have been about BC games. Hopefully things aren't as bad as they seem, for competition sake." We´ll see how Dirty 5 performs on PS5 vs Series X and S soon enough.
I wanna see Halo infinite because that demo was ridiculous
Isn't this game 120fps on Series X and S?
also claimed to be 120fps on the PS5
Digital Foundry said a lot of good things about Dirts performance. Particularly the 120fps mode. Actually, pretty much every preview of dirt 5 has been filled with praise, just most say it doesn’t wow. To be fair, ive seen no wow games on ps5 either. Souls looks the best, and its a port of a shitty 10 year old game. (Seriously, souls games are terrible, no clue why people like them) Lets wait for some more info to come out before chastising previews based on non final builds which actually do run better than current gen games.
As another user has pointed out goto twitter and see reactions it's horrid for the Devs I can imagine this getting delayed.
I can't believe how bad this game looks, Motorstorm apocalypse looks better and that launched nearly 10 years ago. Needless to say, Driveclub looks tons better granted some of the team worked on that title. Hard swerve for me.
Was anybody expecting a cross gen game to have much next gen sheen though? We all knew what we would be getting with some of these cross gen games, same thing happened with games at the start of this gen, thats why you need a mix of 1st, 2nd and 3rd party stuff, nobody's gonna show off your hardware better than your own devs though.
The only problem with that is NBA 2k21 looks incredible.
Thats why I said some and not all.
Drive Club looks better. Hopefully its 60fps with boost mode.
Do you all not remember the transition from the 360/PS3 to Xbox One and PS4? I feel like people are forgetting that we won't really be seeing people taking advantage of the hardware until about 2 years in. Even Demon Souls Digital Foundry breakdown was showing that the game ran at a fairly stable 60fps at 1440p. Likely it will also have a visual mode of 4k 30fps. When my buddy was asking me if he should get a new TV that did 4k 120fps, i told him to hold off, because i do not see that happening this generation. Likely we will have to wait for next gen beyond this to see that type of performance. Only real way close to achieve 4k 120fps, which these new consoles are touting, is to get a PC with a 3090, and even then results will more than likely be just a bit higher than 60fps. For 500 dollars you can't expect these next consoles to perform like a 3k-4k PC, its just unrealistic. These new consoles will likely be 1440p 60fps machines, which is completely fine in my eyes. Set your expectations to be realistic all, these are consoles for the masses with a larger generational leap than what we experienced the last 7 years. At least we get stable 60fps and a resolution bump from 1080p, be happy with that!
"Do you all not remember the transition from the 360/PS3 to Xbox One and PS4? I feel like people are forgetting that we won't really be seeing people taking advantage of the hardware until about 2 years in." speak for yourself! KZ Shadowfall looks stunning from the get-go on the PS4 and still stands as one of the best looking game this gen and then inFamous SS came and showed visuals not possible on last-gen consoles and in the same year, Driveclub totally wiped the floor with its graphics too. it's saying something when the weather effect shown in Dirt 5 is looking worst than a game launched 6 year ago!
Meanwhile, this game will look much better on PS5 hardware, as well as perform much better. And it won't catch on fire doing so either. Who the hell actually thought Series X was anything close to a next-gen console?
I have pre ordered PS4 version. This and ghost of tushima will be my Xmas games! LAST of this gen . (Only have a 1080p TV & No money to upgrade) By the time I get a ps5 & 4k TV.. all relevant patches will be released and games optimised.. so no worries.
“ Meanwhile, this game will look much better on PS5 hardware, as well as perform much better. And it won't catch on fire doing so either. Who the hell actually thought Series X was anything close to a next-gen console?” I do hope that’s just your inner fanboy talking and not your actual beliefs, poor thing.
@meh Are honestly trying to say that this game can't be run better and look better with Sony's I/O solution? You can't be serious...
Hahaha it’ll be the same game. Let him believe different.
@streaky No I honestly don’t think this game will look and perform much better on the PS5. It might load a few seconds faster but as far as looks/other perfomance I think the game will run just the same (or ever so slightly less) than on XSX. With that said I’m not saying it can’t look better, with more effort/time/optimization etc etc, but that goes for both consoles. And no, I also honestly don’t think the XSX will catch on fire, even though fanboys are running with that agenda, like grasping on straws.
Going to have to say it: "looks PRETTY boring. Maybe I'm just spoiled by games like Motorstorm where there was physics, deformation, etc going on. Car hits other cars in the video? Weak interaction. Car hits the wall? No interaction. Dust isn't kicking up behind the vehicle either and just looks low intensity. Just an optimized, current gen game. No dazzle. It's what most of us fear. In order to play ONLINE with this gen, the game's next gen potential is held back.
damn...I really miss Motorstorm! Pacific Rift for me is still the best off-road racing game ever made!
Are people seriously blaming xbox for a multiplatform game that will look the same or worse on ps5? That is hilarious and lets not forget this is a preview build and ign didnt even capture their footage on a 4k capture card. Basically what im saying is that this game looks better than what ign is stating as stated by other people but even still dirt 5 or that yakuza game are not games that wow in the graphics department. Im not defending dirt 5 as im not a fan but come on did people really expect this game to wow you with its graphics on any system.
I think most people will be in for a shock when both consoles come out. In reality it won't be much different then current gen but with faster loading
Well, from the base consoles or the refreshes? I'd say the base consoles will notice huge and immediate improvements. The refreshes were seriously hampered by terrible CPU bottleneck, so the new consoles definitely could offer much more than just graphics improvements, loading being just one of them. Will they look much better at launch vs the refreshes? Some games probably yes, I think several games will look much better on both consoles. However, not every game one plugs in will be a graphical powerhouse, no.
Okay, lol, so based on comments in this thread I checked this out on Twitter. Wow.
