Ryse: Son of Rome wins top SIGGRAPH award

#1Juzten76Posted 8/10/2014 11:43:17 AM
Ryse: Son of Rome, Crytek’s under-received next-gen launch title, has earned itself a prestigious SIGGRAPH award for Best Real-Time Graphics. Released last november, the Xbox One’s Roman Hack-’n-Slash has impressed players and press around the world with its groundbreaking visuals, rivaled only by the likes of PC titles developed with the sole intent to melt your GPU.

During Ryse’s development, special emphasis was placed on achieving realistic characters and immersive story-telling – coupled with the aforementioned graphical achievements – fought the eyes of SIGGRAPH’s judging panel, and has earned the title the #1 spot in their Computer Animation Festival awards (even if it is “only” in 900p).


If only the game was as fun as it is pretty. Still, this just drives the point home that resolution means squat.

I buy used games. I own a PS4, so according to Gamefaqs law I now have the right to act like a complete douchebag on the Xbox One board.

Bad reassurance topic is bad. It just drives the point home that you don't understand what resolution is about.

Making a linear game have good graphics is simple. Let me know when there's an open world game with those graphics on Xbone.

True. That's why you've made so many.

Are we back to 'linear game = good graphics made easy'? Because not too long ago we strayed away from that when it was Driveclub versus Forza Horizon 2, didn't we?

Help a fellow out here.
