Unfortunately, the video is just a digicam in video mode waved around in the presentation room at PDC 2005, so it isn't easy to see a lot of the detail. However, once you get to the Volumetric Clouds, even any remaining non-believers will find their jaws hitting their keyboards.

This is pretty darn tasty stuff.

Thats what my face looks like now...

That looks yummy, Been waiting for 'fully destructible environments' for a while now, I love breaking stuff

That does look sooo tasty, how long are we gonna have to wait? 1,2,3 years

Might wanna use a direct link to the file as I didnt know what I was looking for or if I had to log in etc... http://s2.putfile.com/videos/26010463625.avi

I doubt I'll be able to run that one at 1280x1024...

Probably not allowed to link directly to something like that. This is where Google is your friend.

It's the top link of the middle block (under recent gamers news) on neowin.

I couldn't find it either but the links in this thread helped.

The leaf bit is definately most impressive to me, I'd probably have to see it in person for the clouds to be more amazing. Still, w00t! Hopefully this next version won't be as overlooked as the first Far Cry was among the masses. It'll probably suffer the 'need more hardwarez!111' losses though.

Well, I can't say I didn't try, but the initial reaction from my guy at Crytek was "Hehe, no comment on the video. It wasn't meant to go public!"

Which is fair enough - I'm sure this leak is causing headaches for several people in Germany. I have done my best to explain how they might capitalise on the fact that this video *is* now everywhere by releasing a high quality version, and I'm waiting on a reply.

If we're lucky, they'll agree with me, but having worked in Games PR myself, there are plenty of reasons why they may choose not to unfortunately

The engine, which runs on DirectX 10 and Shader Model 4.0.... Expect 7800s and X1800s to run it
Is there even anything out with SM3? Are shader models just a software feature or a hardware feature? I'm wondering if a 7800 can support these features properly.

Fibre+ - the most obvious reason is the "too soon" problem that has plagued many developers. By showing your hand early in the development cycle, certain people who don't understand the time stuff takes think 'blimey, that looks a bit good' and expect the game to be out in 6 months. Then, when it takes 2 years to complete the thing, they are accused of being "late" or criticised for the "delays".

The bottom line is that there will be a PR Plan in place that has had careful consideration and years of experience poured into it. Releasing high-res assets to us today just because the PDC presentation was leaked definitely won't be part of that plan. Clearly, we all want to spooge over crispy video & screenshots, but there are many more factors than just our personal gratification unfortunately.

I'd LOVE it to happen, but I'll understand if it doesn't.

this is just amazing the volumetric clouds the leaf the soft shadows

now this engine what kind of physics engine is going to support novodex one or their one.... to have fully destructible environments you will need the aegis PPU for sure

When you say SM4, is it the same as the difference between 2 and 3? I mean -- does sm4 add features, or just efficiency?

SM4 but it was running on current hardware? perhaps 7800GTX goes beyond the calll of SM3?

also i reckon your gonna need that PPU (physics processor) to get the best from the physics engine, all that destructable environments, particle effects, volumetric clouds, plants n stuff....that or Dual CPU systems
