That's Crazy! release date when?

Na it's a tech demo its never coming out

That's incredible facial animation. If the in-game graphics, gameplay, combat and story all match that high standard it then I can see the potential for this truly being Hellblade II: Ragnarok Killer.

No, it will be this year maybe early next. An 8 minute gameplay video was just released, and it looks insane!

tombfan431d ago

@GotGame... the 8 minute gameplay is from last year and it was visually stunning, but nothing more. Scripted as hell and no "real" gameplay.

These cutscene visuals are on point but in-game won't look like this

Lightning77431d ago

The second cut was in game lol

sammarshall102431d ago

@Lighting77 I'm talking about during gameplay, her face wont be that detailed

CrimsonWing69431d ago

Have you watched their gameplay demo? It doesn’t sound like you have.

sammarshall102431d ago

@CrimsonWing69 Yes I have actually and her face doesn't look as good as it does here

Watch the part in the gameplay trailer at the end where she's realizing that she knows the giant

Crazy indeed! Looks Awesome! This is nothing but true current gen work.

And we heard from some morons that Xbox Series S is holding the generation back. XD

We also heard from some bs by the same people on how new acquired studios by Microsoft would get worse under Xbox Game Studios.

Crow dinner is served!

Series S won't hold the current gen back. Better graphics is an evolutionary change-- it's relatively easy for developers to load lower res textures and turn down the draw distance, lighting effects, etc. for the Series S. Introducing SSDs is the true revolutionary change that defines the generation. The Series S and X both use the same type of SSD. The Series S is no slouch and will perform just fine at 1080p.

Exactly! I don´t know how hard is for those fanboys to understand that Xbox Series X is and will be the lead platform for games development and the Series S versions of said games will only get ports from it. Smdh.

It’s literally just a face. Let me know when we see new gameplay in action and this kind of detailed facial expression.

Where are the comparable games for Xbox Series? It’s taking way too long, and PS5 is wiping the floor with game tidal waves 🌊 after waves 🌊 Spiderman 2 will be a juggernaut 💥

Brilliant, but we need a release date!

Flawlessmic431d ago

This looks UNREAL!!

Hopefully the gameplay backs up the graphics, and release date would be fantastic.

Flawlessmic431d ago

i mean we will find out soon enough, i hope it does though.

i thought the same thing about ratchet and clank, then you play it and its just like wowwww, still the best looking game this gen in my opinion

I'm not about that console war life, hoping stuff on the other side doesn't look good.

i enjoy all games so yea, i hope it looks this good and plays even better, that would be exciting as hell.

It's Unreal Engine 5 tech, big whoop.

mkis007432d ago (Edited 432d ago )

Ya I think people overlook just how impressive that engine is platform be damned.

Godmars290431d ago

You overlook that the original wasn't a AAA production. That it was almost Ninja Theory's last game.

mkis007431d ago (Edited 431d ago )

I'm not sure what you are trying to say? Yes it was impressive. Yes this is impressive looking too. That said the original didnt have much going on as far as gameplay goes. It was a self contained linear story. Didnt exactly allow them to show anything else off besides their budgeting.

But when U5 was 1st debuted on the PS5 this site went crazy 😆 🤣
