    Nice to see the huge upgrade over UC4.
    And it's not even an open world game.

    We must be hitting those diminishing gains pretty hard if folks don't see difference between uncharted on ps4 and horizon on ps5. Or folks just use a potato quality stream to judge quality.

    I wish we could see more interactive foliage with the short grass and deformation with the sand in the sequence.
    Also noticed during the cutsene with the mamoth a change of lod with the grass near the end.
    probably gonna be fixed. Or already is.

    PC version of HZD added more foliage interaction than the base game.

    Love the Jurrasic park easter egg here :

    Water in the rivers has been upgraded significantly from the previous horizon. Also the waves rolling in the ocean and clouds are pretty dang nice. Looks like we also have clouds in lower altitude now. It's just that horizon does a zillion things instead of only one amazing thing. Devil is in details building up the whole.

    Will be interesting to see how ps4 and ps4pro handle this title.

    I agree but there's not a lot of competition at the same time.

    This game + the new R&C are the best looking games right now and my personal preference goes to Horizon (visually).

    Oh come on, people need to stop with Cyberpunk... this game is being constantly trolled on Internet due to its lack of polish + several bugs :



    Some people really try too hard calling this game as the new Crysis while nobody believes it...

    As for Horizon, i agree that it looks like a Pro++ version, but that's true for all next gen games as far i'm concerned.

    Even ray tracing doesn't make a huge difference visually, no matter what marketing tries to tell us...

    That's exactly what I was thinking the entire time while watching the video. So many things left to improve before release.

    its definitly big jump comparing to u4 but good example as both games not targeting very realistic colors/graphics, more like bautiful cgi style

    Its incosistent, yes. It doesnt change the fact that its the number 1 game on the market in regards to both visual output and the tech underneath it. Ray tracing of course makes an enourmous difference, depending on the game and its implementation. You just need working eyes, marketing has nothing to do with it

    Goddamit I want to play this now!

    Isn't Aloy's face a little chubbier? Not uglier, but more baby-like?

    Yes, it looks like Aloy "glows" in a way that doesn't always fit with the surroundings. Especially her hair.

    This is kind of the wrong thread for versus. It will get real bad once someone brings up halo and what kind of reception it's going to get if horizon is barely better than ps4 games,...

    Anyone thinking this is "barely better" than Zero Dawn is probably filling in the blanks on their memory of the first game.

    Check out the timestamped comparisons. It's a generational leap.

    Surely Cyberpunk 2077 is 100% Polish? :cool:

    Tons of polish required l keep seeing flaws from the first game they have not resolved. Very disappointed. As a game dev you can't those focus on getting the graphics/gameplay better, everything else around the game needs updating..

    That's exactly what guerrilla will be doing between now and release. Release probably being somewhere around November. Hopefully guerrilla doesn't go do cyberpunk with the release.

    i think it's useless to compare HZD VS HZFW PS5, the interesting part will be HZFW PS4 VS PS5, because i'm sure on PS4 graphics will be better than HZD.

    Will also be super interesting to see horizon 3 at some point. It will likely use ps5 as baseline and perhaps ps5 pro is out at that time. It's easy to forget these are games not offline renderers. Limitations apply, especially due to this game also working on ps4. For me graphics is non issue at his point. I'm sold on gameplay and story. I like story driven things and it looks like now aloy is much more part of the world with friends and clear(er) goal instead of being alone and lost in a huge world.

    You can see it in her calves, she looks like she picked up some muscle. I do wish they kept her face a bit slimmer, I noticed it immediately in the trailer that she face looks chunkier(as in fatter not muscular). That said, I still think she looks pretty(maybe it's because I have a thing for red heads).

    I am surprised no on caught that she seemed to walk on air in the beginning(2m38 in the video). I also noticed that immediately in the trailer.
