Only on PC. No place for PS4 or Xbox One.

First of all, this is OPEN WORLD GAME. Don´t bring me here your linear games. This is Open World.

InFamous: Second Son was small. The Witcher 3 is even bigger than Skyrim!!!

That looks amazing, shame I don't have a killer PC, I'll have to play it in 720p, if we can believe Thruway. Ow wait I answered my own question...

#3 Posted by BattleSpectre (5966 posts) -

Definitely looks amazing, but I wouldn't call it the best looking game of all time, credit where credit is due though.

ill answer this questions once its out and i can compare it to all games available at that time.

Hermits be like....

-Try it out in 1440p very high settings @ 10fps

-try it in 720p @ 60fps high settings

-try it in 1080p medium settings, low shadows, turn off SSAO 35-60fps fluctuating

Comes on the internet bragging how ALL PC gamers enjoy their games at 1440p 60fps

@epic-gamerz: Nah not everyone uses a 1440p monitor 1080p is still standard. But I use 1440p and run games just fine at ultra settings, I'm sure millions of others can do the same. That's the nice thing about having a job and being able to afford things you like.

I'd put it in the top 3 so far along with The Division and The Order:1886.

Hard to say since afaik the footage seen thus far has been pre alpha.

It does look darn perdy though.

You sound frustrated. I don't think I've ever seen any PC gamers here say that all PC gamers enjoy their games at 1440p and 60fps.

What I do know for sure is that both my HD 7950 and GTX 770 blow away my PS4 in every multiplatform game I have played. I have no doubt that they will also outperform the PS4 in The Witcher 3.

TW3 may be doing more for being an open world game but by pure look The Order 1886 looks far better, in fact it looks like CGI while TW3 looks very gamey.

Not shit it looks better. It's a game about running down tightly cramped corridors.

#20 Edited by gpuking (2793 posts) -

Well yeah the title did say best looking, not the most open world so I'm not wrong.

That is CGI. You are in for a massive shock if you think otherwise.

#23 Posted by gpuking (2793 posts) -

LOL no Fox, this is all in game graphics. In fact you were using the DS4 tilting the gun around in the last gif. The cutscene to ingame is absolutely 1:1 seamless in fidelity as confirmed by the dev and every media outlets.

No, The Witcher 3 still shits on the linear QTE fest onrails movie The Order 800p even though it is a open world game.

The third .gif looks phenomenal, I've yet to see something like this on my PC, running in real-time.

Not that I'm disagreeing with you, but can you prove that it looks better objectively? The Order's visuals are grainy, blurred and cleverly detailed in a way that can fool people into thinking it looks better than it actually is. It is a console game, this is business as usual for them. I'm not denying TW3 looks outstanding, but The Order is like Doom 3, they are able to accomplish much more due to the significantly limited scope of the design.

#27 Posted by gpuking (2793 posts) -

Don't even bother harnessing any sense from zee, he would discredit and troll any console game regardless due to some unknown hatred. But like you said earlier, you were fooled into believing those gifs are CGI, which only proves the visual prowess of The Order.

Also, film grain automatically makes this worse

First it's 800p and they only showed cutscenes, second it's linear as hell, blurry, runs like a slide show, has low resolution textures scattered through out. Not seeing how it looks better than extremely sharp with gorgeous artstyle of Witcher 3.

Funny on one hand cow hates Ryse but then goes on to praise The Order when both of them are onrails, and ~900p.

I know that you are butthurt over the fact that none of your precious exclusives came anywhere close to Crysis 2. And no he didn't say he considered them to be CGI. You are trying to put words inhis mouth. By the way, I thought you don't like games that are less than 1080p. Pretty sure that's your major gripe with Ryse. How on the earth you defend the Order 800p (Only having 6.7% more pixels than Ryse) on a 50% more powerful console @ 10FPS? Crappy sony First party confirmed? Sony drones hypocrisy at its finest.

#33 Edited by Cloud_imperium (2688 posts) -

People still posting pics of Order 1886 and think it is impressive .? Even after how games like Watch Dogs and Witcher 3 are dumbed down on consoles to make them work .? Lol .

1. Order 1886 have terrible textures .

2. It is linear as hell with press A to win boring ass gameplay .

3. No foliage/fur simulation , no day/night cycle , no dynamic lightening , no god rays , no volumetric clouds , no Dynamic Weather , no TXAA , no HBAO+ , no Tesselation , no Advanced Physics etc etc etc unlike Witcher 3 . And it is suddenly better looking game because "Dem cloth physics" (have been in use by nVIDIA hardware since 2008) .

4. I find it funny , how fanboys think that every next release from Sony is suddenly a graphics king . It made me laugh back in 2008 when fanboys were like "Hell yeah , MGS 4 = best looking game evaaa . Take this Crysis" . (Lol , that 540p game) . PC always pushed graphical fidelity more than any console game and after every few years there is always a PC game that sets the bar high for everything (not just graphics) . Half Life 2 (2004) , Crysis (2007) , Witcher 2 (2011) , Witcher 3 (2015) , Star Citizen (2015-2016) then it'll most probably be Cyberpunk 2077 .

5. Despite being linear , it still looks worse than Witcher 3 (Pre Alpha) .

Just like Crapzone: Shadow Fail's MP running at 1080p and every light being area lights.

#35 Posted by Postosuchus (148 posts) -

Wow this game is looking fantastic. Apparently there will be actually jumping and swimming in this one too. I think this will be my first title that actually makes my 7870 cry.

#36 Posted by gpuking (2793 posts) -

The Order does a lot of new things TW3 doesn't do such as advanced cloth physics, soft body physics for every breakable objects, advanced Physically based rendering, 3d scanned material, 100k+ polys for each main character, advanced camera lens effect, 4x MSAA and much better animation. It doesn't need day and night cycle or dynamic weather sine it's not open world. Character model is already way higher than W3's and true polygon is always better than tessellated ones. We haven't seen a bright sunny day yet so it might well have volumetric sun shaft for those scenes. Just admit it, The Order looks way better and a lot of people have mistaken it for pure CGI, but none did so for TW3. Better luck with Crysis 4 on pc hermits.

You failed. Its CGI trailer, not even ingame. POST GAMEPLAY !!!

I post you gameplay:

Watch closely. Jaggies everywhere. Not even 1080p game. Window and some details are blurry. Its just game art that looks good but nothing else.

Well reviewers game low score game because it had no single-player game mode(story mode). Its just sport games. Its very good game, everything works but Soccer is pointless game. Shooting is very nice but its boring. Bowling, Tennis, Surf and Climbing is great.

I can live without Soccer and targeting shooting. Its like Wii Sports but just better version.

Adding advanced in front of everything won't make it advanced. It's 2008 tech, nothing new. And it will NOT have 4x MSAA. Quote me on it and enither does it have any realtime Physics. Sorry the things you have mentioned even Ryse do it better. Try again the Order 800p looks like shit compared to Witcher 3.

The cheap ass tablet CPU and the 570 level GPU in 900pStation won't let it come anywhere near Crysis 2 from 2011. Crapzone didn't top Crysis 2 (hell Crapzone lost to Ryse, LMAO), Famous for no shadows didn't, The Order 800p is looking weak and neither will your UC4. Keep crying cows. You asked for all this ownage, now suck it up.

I can't wait until the graphical downgrade is announced so all you graphic hungry people will go away from games i like and like them for the wrong reasons :( go jump on the next game.. you guys are like a curse.. every game that has gorgeous graphics turns out to suck.

No gameplay = no gameplay. We play gameplay not video.

#43 Posted by g0ddyX (3909 posts) -

Witcher 3 is certainly up there as one of the best looking games. No doubt the Order is a great contender considering its a console game.
Star Citizen will take the crown eventually along with other Unreal 4 Engine games.

What I do know for sure is that both my HD 7950 and GTX 770 blow away my PS4 in every multiplatform game I have played. I have no doubt that they will also outperform the PS4 in The Witcher 3.

Have a guess why that is. Because it's more expensive hardware. You seem to actively defend the PC all the time and state the obvious PC gamer shit. Why? Do you want to teach the world the superiority of the PC platform? Well, you don't have to because guess what, you have one and can use it as much as you like. Enjoy it more. Get the most out of it before you die. We get it, PC's are more powerful. My PC is more powerful, but I still would buy a multiplatform game like Assassins Creed 4 on PS4 instead because I like console gaming. In fact, I use my PC more for emulation than PC gaming. Explain how your 7950 "blows away" the PS4 on games, or rather how you can run games with a bit more AA and slight more settings. The 780ti blows it away, your card does not. You need ridiculous hardware to really leave the PS4 in the dust. All you PC mad heads think your PC's will automatically smoke the PS4 if you have a little bit more powerful card. And dismiss the notion of optimization like it hardly matters. Get into a conversation with any developer. You might learn something.

Source please .?

The game is not even 1080p despite being corridor shooter and you think it'll have 4xMSAA .? Rest of the stuff you mentioned is either all 2008 tech or not confirmed anywhere .

You are comparing this :

With this .?

Ok, I have become a huge witcher fan. I am currently reading the second book, and now that I have a gaming laptop I am playing the first game. Already played second on 360, but will play it again from steam. Witcher 3 is advertised as open world and I see no reason to doubt because this isn't Peter molyneaux we're talking about. But still, lets wait until we have the game and not hype screen shots and sales pitches.

#48 Posted by FoxbatAlpha (6192 posts) -

If Witcher doesn't get a downgrade...........it will be orgasmic.

#49 Posted by cainetao11 (17010 posts) -

I see the comparing of witcher 3 and the order, and lol. I don't care what people say looks better, I'll bet my PC the witcher turns out to be a better, and more enjoyable game.

#50 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38214 posts) -

It's fantastic looking alright but it's yet to be seen in game if it still has that awful dithering and sharpening going on. It also needs to have a far loading distance if it's open world and TW2 had some God awful loading distances
