Next-Gen Game Engine in Action

Mud has never looked so real.

Former Mafia developer Daniel Vávra and his new studio Warhorse studios has shown off the next-gen game engine he's using to make his next game – an unannounced medieval RPG.

You can see the engine in action in the video below (offscreen):

It might be just some muddy roads and a few run-down barns, but it does look uncannily real. Is this what we can expect from the next generation of home consoles? It's definitely whet our appetite. Eurogamer Czech has reported that the game is using a modified version of CryEngine 3.

Expect to see the untitled game on the next Xbox, the next PlayStation or a high-end PC near you at some unspecified date in the future (that's about as exact as we can be with this sort of thing).

What do you think of the new tech? Let us know in the comments below.

Update

Daniel Vávra contacted IGN to let us know that the presentation is running on an old laptop with a Nvidia 555M graphics card.

I'll post the video in the next post: they've remade youtube so I don't find where to copy the code to put it in here.

So is this what companies are going bankrupt over?

It honestly looks real.

It doesn't look that much better than the top end PC games

The corporations generousity is only as good as their marketshare isn't.

PS3 had better deals. Now X1 priced dropped in UK, has constant sales and free game giveaways. PS4....raised prices in Canada. ;)

imho. Had I seen this just say 10 years ago it would have blown my mind. Today it "just" looks real.
