Ascension Graphics?

132 replies 894 views Edited Jan 17, 2013

Usually I'm not worried about this so much... but after replaying GoW 3 a bit I had a thought.

 

Will Ascension have better graphics?  GoW 3 has amazing graphics in some areas, and not so much in other areas which really made me feel that they might have been constricted by the ps3s old tech.  Then again there are games coming out with insanely good graphics.

 

But I haven't seen much of SP, but so far MP looks like a leap downwards.  Though this is to be expected with MP but what I have seen of the SP looks kinda...bleh.  

 

Any thoughts/ideas?  I don't imagine any form of graphical downgrade, but Uncharted 3 went with a different "lighting" scheme and it looked really weird to me, and form what I have seen from Ascension they seem to be going the same route.

Surprisingly, I found the SP demo's graphics to be pretty tight. Maybe not as good as GoW III's, but still very good. A little more  gruesome also (from what I saw). 

You know what I think it is? Saturation in the colours. Some colours on screen have what image editors would call "muddy colours". But maybe it makes GoW:A's MP more unique and different? Not sure. I kinda like it though. I wish there was more sand on the screen though, it's much too clear.

theres nothing they can do about it God of war ascen will have better looking 720p but at the end of the day it will be 720p this consoles cant really handle a 1080p picture and what i mean is in order for this games to run nices they need to be 60fps the ps3 or xbox cant handle 1080p native at 60fps so all we will get is a better looking 720p something like the game halo 4 and if they do it right it will look SEXY

@Goldhawk1 I Think That The GoW:A SP Was A Early 'Final' Build To Show Off During E3 .

 

For Example: The 2009 E3 GoW: 3 SP Demo Did Not Have/Show The Dynamic Weather Effects When You Pulled Of Helios Head & The Blood 'Sticking' To Kratos After The Cyclops Eye Pull .

 

If Anything Maybe SSM Has A Dynamic 'HUD'  That Will Show Blood, Water, & Sand Effects Right On The Players Display .

 

To Give It That Up Close And Personal Quality To It .

Yeah, I hope so. I'm hoping it's all around better and like you said it COULD just be an early build. We'll see though.

I thought uncharted 2 looked gorgeous and when I got Uncharted 3 it took me a really long time to get used to the graphics...I thought it looked weird. Hopefully Ascension doesn't go that route.

Either way can't wait to get the whole game.

@Goldhawk1 If Anything My Friend, Ascension Would Set The Standard Of Graphical Performance On The PS3 As GoW: 3 Did !

 

To Give You A Relax Thought Watch This Play Through With Game Informer Commentary .Lol

Then You Will See That 9 Months From E3 2012 Is A Lenghty Amount Of Time To Spit Polish This Baby Into A Graphical Engine Of Hell ? .Lol

I'm less concerned with the graphics (screen tearing and all) and more concerned with other problems. Exploits/glitches (not all good), design issues (rage balance, OP stuns, questionable damage values *particularly for collisions*, etc.) and bugs (crashes being quite common/frequent).

Watch the new single-player trailer (http://www.ign.com/videos/2013/01/18/god-of-war-ascension-single-player-trailer) and judge for yourself, but I think it looks awesome!
