Sure it will... R&CFTOD & Uncharted have already shown us Animations can be just as fluid, if not more, in real time. Keep in mind... Thsoe games are 1st gen ps3 games. This is a 3rd gen or maybe even 4th gen xbox 360 game for all we know. It'll be there, trust me. The game looks amazing, by the way... only, it's downfall is that it is yet again... a FPS and that's so boring right now.

R&C's and Unchated's animations are great, but nowhere near this quality of animations. This is on another level.

And it's the animation transitions that really make all the difference. Some games like COD4 for example, have some truly fantastic animations as well, almost lifelike. But when one animation goes over into another one, all goes apesh*t.

I just don't see this quality of animations happening this gen, but I say this with some sort of desperate hope.

Maybe...just maybe...

you know that they've been working on game like uncharted and such long before the ps3 was released, remember warhawk was supposed to be a launch title, and the ps3 was supposed to launch with the 360 but had been delayed a year. That 3rd generation to 1st gen stuff is just fanboy flaimbait, or you trying to justify your purchase.

GT has this in HD.

what I really like is the way his hands look like they move from the weight of the gun.

Statix6034d ago

I agree that a lot of games have sloppy animation transitions, but that's more related to sloppy artists and animators than anything else.

360 doesnt even have exclusives. Everything is on PC too. Games on PS3 are ONLY on PS3.

ichimaru6034d ago

that has to be some of the smoothest animation i have ever seen. i mean really; how he bounces a bit when he croutches back down. amazing.

and to the above, i have no doubt that the ingame anmations ARE that fluid.

riqued6034d ago

This is just animations, no AI actually shown...

fresco6034d ago

for it to be behavior they should show what he's reacting to.. i.e. why he's doing the blindfire or why he's going back into cover.

still pretty nonetheless

iNcRiMiNaTi6034d ago

but what happens when you add in other characters and their animations, environments, explosions, gunshots/muzzleflashes, and whatever else they decide to put in..will it flow as smoothly?

ive seen a trailer before and it looked crazy but it was mostly one on one battles. the game isnt coming out till next year so they have time so ill definitly be keeping my eyes on this one..

Warhound on ice

Swiss gaming magazine GBase asked Techland what happened to the military shooter Warhound which was announced a few years ago. They've learned that the project is on ice right now but maybe in the future Techland will continue to work on it.

I'm with you Shifty. I've been waiting for Dead Island, Chrome 2 and Warhound for literally years. I enjoyed/was happy to support Juarez Bound in Blood and I remember reading an article that it sold pretty well overall yet Techland still hasn't said or done anything since.

Why would they work on any other game? Dead Island and Warhound are both promising new shooters that have the potential to have sequels. Chrome 2 is already a sequel to an established series, (Chrome was solid for its time, SpecForce was excellent) so if they iced Warhound and Dead Island it better for that. Anything else would be a MISTAKE.


Techland working on stuff, keeping quiet for now

TVGB: "There's been quite a bit of chit, and chat, around the water cooler in the last week or so about Techland's future offerings now that Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood has been tagged and released. Dead Island, the game that mixes palm trees, crystal clear waters and zombies, was the first to get inquired about. Thankfully that one is still being worked on, and has even found a publisher. But there's been no word on their other two titles that were announced many years ago but haven't been talked about in quite a while - Warhound, an open-ended first-person shooter, and Chrome 2, the sequel to 2003's sci-fi shooter. We got in touch with Techland to see what was up with these titles and walked away with both good and not so good news."

I'm quite impressed by techland and their chrome engine. COJ:BiB is a really good looking game at times and I can't wait to see what dead-island and hopefully warhound look like.


Warhound Being Reevaluated, not Officially Canceled

In 19 days, it'll be two years since Joystiq last heard anything about Call of Juarez developer Techland's "open ended FPS," Warhound. So, when they heard last week that the developer was still working on its zombie-infused Dead Island, they shot Techland an email and asked about the game once intended to rival Crysis' graphics.

green5456d ago

I hope they don't cancel it because it looked really promising.

N4PS3G5456d ago

Good to know that Dead Island and this are still kicking

TheColbertinator5456d ago

Looks like vaporware to me(Warhound).It might as well be in the same page as Duke Nukem Forever or Wardevil.

Dead Island is a good concept and they really need to avoid screwing that up

socomnick5456d ago

God I hope not, after playing and loving both Call of juarez games, I really want them to succeed and for these games to come out. They develop some pretty impressive tech and the games have personality something missing on other big name shooters like haze or killzone 2.

free2game3655456d ago

a multiplat game could never rival Crysis visually
