At this year’s 2011 QuakeCon keynote, tech wiz and Id Software director John Carmack said a downloadable ‘super quality pack’ for Rage PC is possible.
Mmm, make it happen Carmack.
Yep... make it happen. Another reason to get the PC version, if there were any doubts.
Super Quality plus mods! yeah! That will be Super Duper Quality!
Glad to see some developers taking advantage of the more powerful hardware
I hope everyone does not follow Crytek now and release all versions with equal content then fix the PC version months after release. That would be bad, especially from someone like ID.
Its better than just leaving it as a simple console port with higher res. Its usually just about money and development time that they can't do more with the PC version at release. I don't mind waiting a couple extra months. The Crysis 2 upgrade was a great improvement @firemassacre below: are you drunk? you make no sense.
the dx9 pc launch version of crysis 2 was HARDLY equal to the console versions!! for one, one my pc and everyone I know, it ran at a buttery smooth 60 frames per second without a single torn frame! It had mucho anti aliasing Ran in stunning true 1920 x 1080p vs. the consoles ugly sub-hd it was not plauged with horrendous pop-in like the console versions it had dedicated servers the dx11 and high res texture update just further seperated the pc from the console version then the mod tools came and goodbye any semblance of the pc version and the console versions even being considered in the same leauge! but day one the console versions looked a full gen behind, like most multiplat games unfortunately time for new consoles!
My point was Crysis 2 should have supported all the advanced features from day 1. If this is the way pc games are going its bad news, what would be the point in buying a game on release if the high end features are added later? Im not going to buy a game, play it, then play it again when they decide to finish it.
Considering it comes with mod tools, a lot more is possible.
True if they don't someone else will.
do it now for me. cass in pointe a carmack is ready for it
i agree ;)
And another thread where I get to point out that Consoles are in their death rattle... At least for core gamers.
There shouldn't be a downloadable pack afterwards. The game is supposed to ship with that. Don't be like Crytek, please.
put it in the box. come on. this crap is getting stupid. obviously id doesnt want to have reviews state how the PC version is superior in the graphics department. which any sane gamer knows already. they are pulling a Crytek.
Now we pc gamers get a dumbed down version of the game, and then we will wait 4 months after release to play the game at higher and better graphics, its a shame we have come to this. Games should give the best graphics possible at launch But for a positive view can this be a nice thing, if they somehow use my 12GB ram and extra 1GB video ram in my card, then this is good :)
