How spoilery is that DF video?

It shows different areas of the game (biomes) but otherwise it’s entirely spoiler free, it looks bloody amazing too. Everything looks improved on the original game.

I can lend you a PS4? 

 :) thanks, but I think I’ve been spoiled by my PC, I think I’ve probably become one of those insufferable frame rate pricks snobs.

As much as that word is pornography to a creative director, I am always happy when games at least have distinct environments. Preferably in a linear, or psuedo open world, but the variation visually is a must regardless of game layout. 

 

I mean, let's compare Halo 3 to Halo Infinite. Halo 3, had some staggeringly different environments, and was just incredible. Infinite dropped the ball unfortunately. 

 

Uncharted 1 to Uncharted 2. Forests Vs Forests, Mountains, Cities, Trains etc. 

 

But aye, Biomes really is the kind of word used as a title on a slide containing nothing else to show every developer the game will have ice, wind and fire.

It really is bizarre. Why wade into a thread and explain why you're not getting said game, perhaps posting a hilarious gif or jpg or a gurny YouTube or maybe concern trolling a little. Does it make people feel superior? Justify their otherwise sad existence?

very much want to play this game, it would normally be a day one release for me. 

 

It’s more people posting on how they’re going to cope with two massive games released at the same time.

People are just sharing their views, it’s not life or death.

I remember the thread for the first game where every few posts you had someone knocking the virtual door like a Jehovah's Witness to admonish people for playing the heretic game first instead of welcoming the light of Breath of the Wild into their life.

They were too released within a week of each other and there were obvious comparisons to be drawn.
 

From that DF video it looks as though the traversal in Forbidden West is much improved upon the original, that was my biggest bugbear with the first game coming straight from BOTW which offered pretty much unlimited freedom. FW now appears to have much better climbing and so on.

Including a hand glider.

I'm really looking forward to this :)

 

I only started the old game last year and finally completed it early this month, when I realised I wanted to see how the story finished before jumping into part 2. I also found a bit or lore talking about the Forbidden West which was nice. I very rarely buy games at release and the price tag almost put me off, but I thought fuck it. I know I'll enjoy this game, even if it is just a prettier version of the second, but by most accounts it seems to be that and more. 

 

Excited now!

I’m guessing ray tracing isn’t in the game as it’s not mentioned at all in Digital Foundry’s analysis, not that it matters. 
 

I love that it has terrain deformation now, so footprints left behind, trails in grass etc, even the animals make tracks :)

Shame on me for buying BoTW first TBH. On reflection really wish I'd picked HZD up at the time. Hey ho. Mistake rectified. At least Zelda had a good resale value! :D

No, not in HFW I'm afraid. Pulling together all the DF analysis on PS5 I've watched and processing it in my meagre brains, my interpretation is that RT just has too high a cost to be used in most high-end titles.

 

That's concerning in theory, but in reality I think it could be down to the tooling, and the fact we're still in a cross-gen period. When focus shifts to new engines and middleware built from the ground up for current gen, fingers crossed you'll get more RT.

I’m lucky to be in a whynotboth.gif situation, I’ve preordered this with Christmas gift vouchers and I game share with a mate who has preordered Elden Ring.  I’ll be playing both in tandem and fully expect that I will be getting fucked every which way in ER and will be turning to HFW for comfort.

Hey guys, this looks great and all, but did you know there's this game ELDER RINGS coming out only a week later?!??!?

 

Seriously though, it is a bit of a shame these two big ones come out so soon after each other. The footage in that DF video looked truly spectacular, they really nailed a certain atmosphere where you very much want to reside in the world they've created. I've only ever felt that with the open worlds of Rockstar's games.

BRB guys, going to the Elden Ring thread to tell them all I’m buying this instead of that and then remind them periodically. I’m sure they’re all hanging on this information and don’t want to disappoint them.


 

fair point. Sorry if I rained on anyones parade. I was only trying to articulate my frustration that I don’t get to play this at launch with all the chat that goes along with it. It’s looks incredible.

Im not buying Elden ring until I finish demon souls.

 

I’m not a massive fan of botw.
