Rage The First 10 Minutes (native 60fps footage)

"We were hoping we would receive our copy of Rage in time to write a full review but unfortunately it got here for the game's release and we could only play the beginning of the adventure (again). Although I had discovered the first hour of id Software's new title on PC last August, I must say I was really impressed when launching the console version. Graphics, framerate and animations are all particularly superb and at times, it almost feels like jumping onto the next generation of hardware (except when you start looking at textures from up close). I'll leave you with four gameplay videos so you can see it for yourself." - Gamersyde

I gotta admit, this website has a very impressive flash player. Forza 4 looked great but holy crap... Rage looks pretty amazing at 60FPS...

JellyJelly4671d ago

Yeah, Gamersyde always have great quality videos. Rage is probably the best looking FPS on consoles to date.

Bolts4671d ago

Native 60 fps, LOL. WTF is native 60 fps?

Apocwhen4671d ago

Perhaps it means that the videos aren't streamed from youtube as that has a 30 fps limit as far as I know.

Longsama4671d ago

watch the vids you'll see the difference

Bolts4671d ago

Wow are those real screens from the console version? There's low res textures galore.

I'm still learning how to look for the differences. At first I was focusing on shadows for some reason but I don't think that changes much, is it reflections that change?

rashada071854d ago (Edited 1854d ago )

It is supposed to be simulating how light actually works- so yes if light is reflecting off a surface accurately it should show reflection or an effect that matches what you are looking at in the environment. Next time you play a game look at a puddle of water there may be just a "baked" in texture that if you aren't paying attention seems like it is reflecting but it isn't. I would say though if the light is reflecting more accurately I would think that would give more accurate shadows as well.
I am still not 100% sold on it- it looks okay but I can't get over the hardware price jump for better reflections..

Taz X141854d ago

While games won't look immensely better, it opens up more possibilities overall. Understandably, the price jump is huge. But, that can be said for being at the forefront for any new technology. I'm currently using a 2080ti and while I've played a few games that enable it, the gpu also plays everything else incredibly well so it's not like you're buying this tech for ONLY that option. Enthusiasts will pay top dollar to check out the newest things, but this will eventually become an everyday consumer and by then they'll have optimized and become a lot cheaper.

Ray/path tracing can be used how the developer wants it to be. Tracing can be used to calculate shadows/lighting, reflection and even audio, where audio waves are calculated on the bounce off material types to simulate enviroment and echos accuratly.

Should also keep in mind that this ray/path tracing system is different and less accurate option from Nvidias RTX branded type. McFly's is a reshade that layers over the top of the game and therefor the quality will vary drastically. For example you can see nice reflection in the Star Wars demo here but it then introduces colour clipping with the light saber. On a video of GTA 5 for example it was incorrectly projecting a reflection of a red car onto the road which caused a very faint red glow on the ground around the car.

If you want to see a good example of a game developed with ray tracing reflection and lighting in mind then you could look up the youtube video of "Control - Exclusive E3 RTX GAMEPLAY Trailer".

It supposed to add more realistic light Not actually more light effects and explosions

traumadisaster1854d ago

I hate to say it but I’m fine with fake lights, shadows, reflections. I just kind of like the effect, it’s also great it saves resources for other things.

I’ve been checking out some original Xbox games on x360/x1x and the engine has fake light streaming in through a stained glass window, and I love it even though I know it’s not real time lighting. Heck it even shifts as I move about.

I’ve about convinced my self rt and hdr just doesn’t work for me. Before hdr I would even complain damn why are the headlights killing me they are so bright.

I notice most frame rate, then jaggies, then resolution; with the last two interchangeable depending.

Other day watched an enthusiast rave over 4k and the poor guy was in 1080p. I played the same game the night before and thought wow this is clean, I wonder if it’s 4k, but knew differently and I thought wow even resolution is not always important. The next day he apologized and was surprised he could be fooled.

RaidenBlack1853d ago

EA should have released the Crysis Trilogy Remaster for this gen.

FGHFGHFGH1848d ago

How come the lightsabers don't give off any light? Even in the EA star wars game the guy uses it to light up a dark cave. I guess if it is using frostbite it will support rtx cards.
