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.
