[Polygon] Crysis 3 open multiplayer beta coming Jan. 29 to consoles and PC - Page 18

post #171 of 457
Just about playing at 1600x900 with no AA and everything else at default.

Although I am running a 5850 redface.gif . Probably need to go down to 1280x768.

The last game to make me upgrade my GPU was Crysis......hmm..

I am crap at hunter mode.

I can safely report that online uses 7 out of my 8 cores though, so seems to be threaded well

What are you not impressed with though, the image quality or the fact that you can play on Very High with a 7970 GHZ?

I would say that playing with decent frames, 1080P, on Very High on the fastest single GPU on the market is exactly where I would hope a new release PC game would be.

I've been having a ton of fun in crash site, haven't played hunter mode yet but does anyone know if SLI and crossfire are for sure working in the beta? I am only able to use 1 680 during games my second just sits idle. I get around 30-50 fps depending on how chaotic things are in the area on the 1 but I would love to be able to use both my cards and see how well they scale.

playing Very high with txaa 4 and set textures to very high (it didn't automatically for some reason when I selected the very high pre set)

Crossfire definitely working when add profile through ccc. Im on 13.1. Mine scale double from single card but aa kills my fps any higher than medium with everything else maxed out. I think this game looks real well, the colours and textures, especially for a beta. Mind maybe the colours look great after the blue battlefield for so long lol

I'm running a mix of very high and high with 1x MSAA on a 2440x1440 resolution, very playable. So it seems to take good use of my 6990 thumb.gif

Not so much the performance, but the visuals (as it runs better then anticipated, so i'm happy about that). However, it really didn't 'wow' me like the hype that was pushed as usual. Then again, this is MP so I'm sure single player would be a lot better. After just replaying Crysis 2 a bit, I was expecting a bit more, that's all.

But I could care less about the visuals if the game itself is good, thats the important part. We shall see on that.

I hear ya, thanks for the reply!

I've been playing a bit of C2 with the Maldo mod so my expectations are probably a little high as well.

After playing 2 matches I have to say, I am impressed. The performance is leagues better than the Alpha, and the number graphical options is reminiscent of the original Crysis. On the highest preset with FXAA it mixes between 50-70 frames, depending on just how much is on the screen. And of course, the game looks great.

The matches were the Hunter Mode which was really what I was looking forward to and I have to say, I actually didn't expect it to be as balanced as it is. I was going into the beta expecting the Hunters to have a huge advantage over the Cell, but actually if anything the Cell ave the advantage in their numbers, and just how squishy the Hunter's really are. It was a joy, though I don't understand how they choose who the Hunters are in the beginning of each round. If it's random maybe I'm just unlucky as I was never picked for any of the rounds.

Only problem is that it's easy for just a survivor to simply camp in a narrow enclosed area and just wade out the round. Bows are useless at close corners as compared to the firearms the Cell boast.

I'm jelly. Waited until midnight last night to start download.
Woke up this morning and it was done. Was tempted to pick
up the phone and call in lol. But then again. Didn't wanna
disappoint myself. So I'll wait until I get home. 7 more hours... frown.gif

Textures, sharpness, movement, hardware detection etc. are way better this time around.
I don't compare this to C2 at all. The only thing that's the same is the Nanosuit, otherwise the quality is much higher.

It looks and feels like a pure PC game.
