Here's What A Next-Gen Medieval RPG Will Look Like...Wow

As time passes, we'll get more glimpses of what the next generation has in store.

The latest comes courtesy of former Mafia developer Daniel Vavra, who has uploaded some footage of a new medieval next-gen RPG to YouTube. The game is in development at the Czech-based team Warhorse Studios and is slated to arrive in 2014 or 2015. Yes, it's a ways off, but still worth a look.

Vavra added on Twitter that what we're seeing is running on an old notebook with an Nvidia 555M graphics card, so imagine what it might look like with next-gen hardware... This game is being built using a modified version of the amazing CryEngine 3 (which you'll see on display in the upcoming Crysis 3, set to release on February 19, 2013), and it's only a brief sample, but the possibilities are clearly through the roof. That much is obvious.

You know, this is pretty insane for older gamers. There was a time when we all were amazed and blown away by Super Mario Bros. because we had only been used to Atari, Intellivision, Colecovision, etc.

I skimmed through the video, and yes, it looks amazing but I want to see this world populated.

It looks like a Skyrim town to me with higher detail.

Make it feel alive!

Looks really nice. I would like to see an open world zombie game built on this engine...is it weird that is the first thing that came to mind?

Lush graphics and landscapes filled with zombies, man that would be great.

Indeed, if they take great care in developing it, it definitely could.

And this is just an early model of a location, running on a laptop.

I wish the next gen consoles could come one year earlier. I wish Crysis 3 on full effect were the first game I was going to play on my new console.

The environment looks really good but I'm going to have to reserve judgement until I see how the interaction with this environment goes as well as particle effects and so forth.

I won't deny it looked nice but I'm sure we've seen as good if not better on the PS3 already. Maybe because it's an old build or just not a great quality HD video we're seeing here? I don't know, without much else to go on I'm a bit underwhelmed with what's there, but I'm allowing myself to believe it could turn out to be great.

Speaking of next-gen... I see there now is confirmed that Steam indeed is working on a console. So it seems that in addition to the Ouya "casual" console coming next year there's also now the "Steambox" entering the arena with high-end specs, head-to-head against Microsoft and Sony in the fight for the next-gen console customers.

Exciting times ahead!

OMG good graphics? Automatic GOTY. But seriously, don't give me a game that looks gorgeous and sucks. Focus more on the gameplay and not so much the graphics. I don't want a game that looks life-like if it plays like a nntendo wii game

I wish I knew what he was saying, but the graphics indeed look really good.

meh, it's okay I guess. My expectations are quite a bit higher. This looks comparable to Skyrim, but with maybe better hdr implementation and some extra foliage. Hehe and a GeForce 550 mobile chip had better be a very conservative representation of the next gen.

Sorry, I'm a Debbie Downer

Honestly it looks equal to the pc version of skyrim with the high res texture pack. While that is beautiful, I was hoping for more from a next gen console.

I'd rather they push farther, granted it was on a laptop and early games are never as good as ones released later in the generation, I'm just hoping for more of a leap forward than a step forward. Especially since you know it won't be cheap.

@Temjin & Kraygen:
I think it is critical to remember that we talk about a game that is planned two-three YEARS into the future. So this "demo" is merely a realtime camera movement through a modelled area from a laptop - it even looks to be from within the designer tool itself.

So it has to be considered from that perspective. And it's all in the details. The muddy waters *looks* dirty, how plants and trees are softly swaying in the wind, the shadows, the details in the woodwork, how there seem to be no repetitive textures or pixelated surfaces. Ad a fat layer of polish, audio and life to this environment, and we're talking.

a freaking 555!?
seriously!?
hot dam, if there doing that with a 555 than scrap that sh*t, and show us what a freaking 690 can do!
im starting to think all the hot air crytek have been blowing at epic about the UE4, was not actually hot air.
its looking pretty impressive what the engine can do, and yes looks almost as good as epics tech demos!
better yet its available NOW!
one thing i love about crytek, they are always ahead of the ball.
wish they would expand their studios and start going into multi game development, lets see something different a new IP along with crysis.
too good a franchise to end!
makes me a sad panda that they keep saying C3 will be their last paid to play game, everything from now on will be F2P.
well heres to warface falling flat on its face, and changing their whole world domination plan!
