The Order dominates everyone in graphics at Gamescom 2014

#1 Edited by gpuking (2758 posts) -

This year's Gamescom sure delivered a slew of stunning looking games from all platforms be it AAA or indie, or AAA indie! Many games have made my jaws drop and drooled like a fool. Games like the new Silent Hill, The Witcher 3, ACU, BloodBourne, HellBlade, Until Dawn, Quantum Break and Drive Club are really showing what second year nextgen titles are capable of. But none has quite reached the level of graphical prowess from The Order 1886. This game is simply on another level, whether due to its technical marvel or the art direction, the on screen realtime rendering can almost literally be taken as CGI quality. If there's a graphics king at Gamescom 2014, it would be hands down The Order.

yeah i have to agree

the graphics are unreal in that game...it pretty much CGI to me ...i think only ND or Sony santa monica main team wiill be able to top those graphics

and the latest gameplay trailer was Fucking awesome too

But Crysis 3 looks better.

Does look good, not going to deny that. But my god that is the most generic looking gameplay I've ever seen.

The game looks amazing graphically, the gameplay however left me disappointed.

I'm betting it's another Ryse, all looks no substance.f

Oh and, lol gpuking insecurity thread, didn't read the op because it's guaranteed to be fanboy bullshit.

It's not that bad this time. He mentions it being graphics king in Gamescom. So, technically it isn't wrong. Though he tends to label a lot of games as "graphics king" so, his credibility isn't that great...

@bldgirsh

Dude, ever occurred to you that as time goes by we see new titles pop up thus replacing the previous crown holder? In fact I've always been very specific about it, I always add "released thus far" or "launch titles" or "in year xxxx" etc. I don't just change opinion like a mom. Please do take note ye?

#16 Posted by happyduds77 (1448 posts) -

I agree. It looked like a high budget CG movie when I watched the trailer.

When I seen QB I was impressed by it's graphics, but I was more impressed by The Order.

The Order is really insane graphically speaking...

but really Quantum Break gameplay moved me more than The boring but stunning looking Order... Same thing that happened to Infamous repeating with The order? too much fancy graphics very uninspired gameplay.

Ahh, so you are clueless of what's graphics king and what isn't. Thanks for reassuring my stance on your credibility being dismal.

#22 Edited by Speak_Low (928 posts) -

It's frickin incredible. Like I said before, we dreamed of having near CG graphics years ago. This is getting really close - enough to make people think the first The Order E3 trailer was CG. Notice they don't apologize for that mistake.

Of course, there's going to be more whining and WAAAAAH nitpicking because it's a Sony/PS4 game. Like the WAAAAAAH about Naughty Dog's TLOU. If both of these games were multiplat they'd be more quiet.

#23 Edited by Vaasman (11223 posts) -

Frankly Witcher 3 looks better. All Order has going for it are animations, everything else is just cheap tricks it's hiding behind, be it the bloom or the glare or the grain. The only part of the trailer I found impressive was the texture work in the chapel area.

Not to mention it just looks boring. I'm still banking on this being the Lair of this generation.

It does look pretty amazing.

Quantum Break will be better 'game' though . A lot better . Graphics wise , I think Witcher 3 , Ryse PC and Unreal Tournament will be new graphics kings and two of these (TW3 and UT) will also be good games and not just tech demos like Ryse and Order .

#26 Posted by dommeus (9231 posts) -

@gpuking:

It LOOKS awesome, but like people are saying, we've played this game dozens of times last gen. A current gen coat of paint can't disguise that.

You have to wonder what this generation's 'Gears Of War' will be.

Whats wrong with film grain?

Everyone screamed about how the first Mass Efffect had film grain and it added all that indy sci fi crap feelings to it and when they took it out of the others everyone supposedly says "Oh man....it doesn't have that obscure movie feeling to it".

Now it's bad?

thats the wonderful thing about videos.... you can see the gameplay and judge based on what you like.....

But Crysis 3 doesn't even look that impressive.

#35 Posted by adders99 (2594 posts) -

It certainly is an impressive looking game. Only time will tell if the actual game play is good.

i don't agree with this ...i would never judge a whole game by only 5-7 minutes video that doesn't even show all gameplay styles for both

that's why i won't judge any of them untill they are out but even if i did ...they have very similer great Gameplay but with The Order Having Graphics i have never seen before

  • 800p - check
  • 30 fps - check
  • black bars - check
  • film grain effect - check
  • lightmaps - check

And yet it still looks pretty fucking sweet.

That said, I still have no interest in the game... well, maybe enough for a rental.

You know that Ryse is 900p, yet The Other has higher res at 800p. The image you get is 1080p, just with black bars lol.

Best graphics shown to date. CHECK

#39 Edited by Speak_Low (928 posts) -

We've come a long way with TPS graphics:

The one below looks like a CG cutscene for a game years ago (actually, it looks better - CG didn't always look the greatest years ago). Now that we have games that are playable and look like this, it's still not good enough for some.

Even GTA V's corridor sections, TLOU or Bioshock:Infinite did not look like anything close to what you see above. They looked great, but looked like video games. This is on another level, but it's still not good enough for some.

#40 Posted by gpuking (2758 posts) -

It's 1920 x 800p with 4xmsaa which totally surpasses a typical 1080p buffer with post aa. It's no contest, The Order has everyone beat in the iq department.

Derp.

#42 Posted by xhawk27 (7229 posts) -

I bet you that modded GTA V on PC is going to look better.

#43 Posted by FoxbatAlpha (6133 posts) -

Not graphics king if only 800p. I love using cow logic against them.

It might be Movie King with those black bars. ;)

#45 Posted by Sollet (7338 posts) -

#46 Posted by TheGuardian03 (21520 posts) -

It is impressive looking.

watch the gamescom trailer and i spot a second where when you move the camera and look at the buildings the textures level of detail changes on one of the buildings on the right. it's a trick used by devs so that only when you are looking at something it loads the detail but when you move the camera and see the building on the edge of the screen, the level if detail changes. it happend in infamous too. when you move the camera or get close to a building the level of detail on something changes.

still i think it's the most impressive looking next gen game. just hope it has replay value and and good gameplay.

Ryse PC and The Witcher will look and PLAY better.

#48 Posted by scottpsfan14 (3731 posts) -

He is kinda right. But I've past caring.

#49 Edited by scottpsfan14 (3731 posts) -

Ryse PC and The Witcher will look and PLAY better.

I knew this would happen lol. Ryse would be hyped by the hermits. 4/10 is a 4/10. The Order looks more interesting. And the graphics are at least as good.
