If you've been looking for a game to show off the graphical power of the PS5, Ride 4 looks amazing.
I cant front this looks good.
Could be mind-blowing in VR. Sony have said they're doing a massive push on 'hybrid' games (flat and VR), like Hitman 3, GT Sport and Resident Evil 7. I wouldn't bet against something like Ride 4 getting a day one patch at PSVR2 launch.
Give us a VR capable road rash that looks this good!
Wait… how do we know THIS isn’t PS5 VR.. right now… it’s too real!
lol because you need an actual VR helmet to experience VR?! 🤦♂️
The only thing I could see to make it even better is more water spray from the bikes ahead and reflection of the rider in the mirros.
Don’t forget actual hands movements they look like a doll’s hand the game don’t show down/up shifts and break movements
Gotta agree ... looks awesome
Looks decent. Racing games with fixed tracks always should look the best, and historically have represented the best graphics of each generation. Although lately they have fallen out of favor.
Looks really good but game also coming to PC Xbox series The title make it sound like game is exclusive to ps5 even in the tags he mention only one system ps5 lol
Yea, true ... saw few PC 4K videos after this one. Actually it looks more convincing when the rain effects get turned on during the race. On a bright daylight setting it looks just ok.
From that screencap not so much. TLOU2 looks more realistic. So does Watch Dogs Legion.
Nah... TLOU2 looks great but it is anything but realistic. Something is realistic when you cannot tell if it is real or not. You can immediately tell TLOU2 is a game upon seeing just a few seconds of a video.
Exactly if you showed that a group of non gamers on a yt video with a different description and showed people they wouldn't know imo.
Certain objects/materials look real in TLOU2 like picking up a shark plushie. But I agree it's not quite there yet. Maybe a native PS5 Naughty Dog game will be a step closer
Neither of those games are even trying to look realistic. They have heavy art focus. High quality visuals isn't necessarily tantamount to realism.
I think they both were going for realism. It's just that it's harder with people not in helmets. 🙄
The best looking, most detailed AAA games out there like TLOU2 and RDR2, while incredible looking, don't literally look real. They can't fool your mind. I have to say, this footage is insane. Very convincing. I wonder if the illusion is maintained when you crash. EDIT: at 3:47, it still looks mostly real when he crashes besides the human ragdoll clipping the bike.
The lack of any sort of motion blur makes this look very video gamey and thus very fake.
@Magog, because nothing screams real life like motion blur. “makes this look very gamey” you don’t say!
Without a shadow of a doubt.
Find it hard to believe you truly believe that. The lighting and weather effects alone in this vid are insane. Don’t get me wrong tlou looks great, super rich detailed environments that are pretty much unmatched anywhere, but it still has a somewhat cg style (I don’t know how to describe it). But this looks so real. At least it does on my phone screen, I’ll be hunting for this in 4K on you tube to watch on the tv later
did you watch the vid though?
When paused it doesn't look that impressive. In motion it looks very realistic(excluding the bike).
Granted I’m looking off my phone but if you didn’t tell me that was a game I’d think I’m looking at go-pro footage.
Um no! Sorry Magog.
I agree. Bicep rendering in TLOU2 out of this world
Watch the video not the screencap.
Looks great! It is also coming to Series S/X though. The new Gen update drops January 21st.
On SX I think it's going to look more realistic than real life
Good to know. Gonna pick this up on series x. Looks great. Ps5 is gonna have some great looking games this gen!
Wow, that looks incredible.
I wouldn't have known that was a game if I wasn't told. Ultra realistic.
"try dropping the quality down to 144P and try to tell me it doesn’t look like real-life" What?
It means that the lighting, reflections and other details are so good that at lower resolutions it is indistinguishable from actual video footage. That actually does count for something.
I saw this on YouTube 2 days ago and I'm fucking impress. You can feel the velocity on your skin.
wow, hard to argue against
Even if you don't play racing games, you have to appreciate how well some of them nail the graphics.
Reminds me of DriveClub. So good.
shame Sony killed off DriveClub would have been great on PS5...
Thats what I was thinking I miss driveclub 😥
DriveClub deserves a PS5 update.
My thoughts exactly!
Man imagine this with the psvr! Would be freaking wicked. Especially with the duelsense to where you feel every switch of the gear and feel how the bike slips in the rain would be epic
Psvr2: At somepoint during this gen were going to be 😊😳
This looks really good.....damn.
Already been confirmed as not gameplay. Like the upcoming GT. These graphics and animations are only available in the replays. Lighting effects and reflections etc will not be present in actual gameplay.
Looks quite good, but the fact that I went into this looking for flaws (thanks, headline!) cheapens it a bit for me. If we're talking about realism, there are three things that bother me: the look of the bike itself, the windshield, and the mirrors. The bike display looks pretty flat and remains miraculously dry. I don't care personally, but we've literally gone into this talking about realism... So yeah. The windshield doesn't seem to warp imagery at all compared to the road itself. Usually, looking into a windshield distorts the outside world in some way (e.g., tint or the road appears to be zoomed in a little. It was a 1:1 portrayal which is odd on a motorcycle. The side mirrors appear to show other bikers accurately, but where's the rain collecting on them? I only mention these things because realism is about more than graphics. It LOOKS better than a game like, say, Uncharted 4, but the world in Uncharted 4 reacts more realistically. Good examples are the muscle strain when Nate hangs with one hand and points with the other or the slash marks in the sword fight. So for me, I would say... Define "most realistic looking". I think the visual fidelity is excellent, but I'm still not convinced that it appropriately meets expectations for realism. But that's just me.
For me, it's the screen itself. There's light droplet effects build up on the bike/visor but not on screen??? Player is wearing a helmet like the other bikers, right? Like other racers, maybe there's an option which this demo isn't using. Everything else is great especially the sound effects of the wind and hearing the slippery road when breaking.
There's always the person that can't just give credit where it's due. Willing to tear down yet has built nothing. Calm it down, champ, wouldn't want the community to go thinking that you could do better.
"There's always the person that can't just give credit where it's due." Except I did. I pointed out it looks great already. That was, quite literally, me giving credit where it is due: on its visual fidelity. This is an article talking very particularly about the game's realism. I made no comments about gameplay, and focused specifically on realism, which is beyond graphics. "Willing to tear down yet has built nothing." What are you going on about? Tearing it down would be me not saying anything constructive. I'm pointing out where it can improve. Very constructive, actually. Side note: don't assume I've built nothing. In my life, I've never built a game, but I would argue that the work I've done in my life is far more important than a game. 😉 "Calm it down, champ, wouldn't want the community to go thinking that you could do better." Never said I could. And I don't think there's a soul on this site who would believe that I thought so. If you did, you've got bigger problems than a fair comment about the level of realism. Just because I'm not giving fawning praise doesn't mean I don't think it looks great. My comment is a critique, not a criticism. It's quite constructive where I am identifying exactly what could improve realism. If I just said, "it looks terrible! Trash! Have fun with your terrible game that looks bad lololol" you would have a point. I didn't. If you disagree, fine. But know that you're wrong in your evaluation of my comment. And if you don't understand any part of this...I don't care enough to reply again, mate. 🙂
It looks pretty great, at a glance you wouldn't realize it was a game, but if I look for at least a few seconds or more, you start to see the less realistic parts. The environment looks like a photo/video, but I agree the bike itself doesn't look as convincing, I still think this is fantastic though.
Nah i'll wait for GT7
Actively picking jaw up off of the floor. Wow!
The roads and water effect is really good, the other racer models aren't quite on the same level, but still look quite good.
Saw this yesterday. Not to start a war but how PC players can laugh at PS5 graphics when it's capable of this. This is probably the most lifelike game I've ever seen.. if you turn the video quality down it's indistinguishable from real life
This game is on PC though
Never said it wasn't
The gloves and motorcycle don’t look realistic but the road and environments do
This game would benefit with VR. I ride a cruiser and a sports bike and this looks awesome. Can't say about the physics though. Moving so fast at high speed like that isn't that realistic unless you can overcome the g force and wind. Otherwise, this game looks stunning.
That is sick....
It's not more real looking than flight simulator. Sorry. It may be more fun or a better game, but it doesn't look better.
While racing games are among the easiest games to make look real, flight simulators are even easier
Something this good looking needs a downloadable demo so so bad… please?
I am kind of blown away to be honest, sure the bike stands out but the environments look so good it makes the bike stand out.. the environments have such a realistic art style to them, they look pre rendered
It's not an "art style". Those environments are real, as in, it actually exists as a real place in real life. This is not a made up track or road.
Well the motion sickness is definitely real!
haha yeah I could only watch a few minutes
