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.
