    The helmet is not in cryengine in those images - the reflections are too good. The model itself may end up in game but the glass won't look that good.

    This game will be responsible for a LOT of hardware upgrades! :)
    Can't wait to do some dog-fighting on the 29th !

    Same here. My 7970 has been good to me, but I have a feeling running Arena Commander at 1.3ghz is going to wear it out! Come fall I'm just going to get the best card available.

    I think I will tough it out until the game is out. It will be more optimized and there will be more gpu options.

    I hope NVIDIA stays on the ball with the SLI profiles for this game. No way I can afford better than what I have now.

    I hope my GTX680 MSI P.E. holds me over for awhile.

    Dump another 680 in that bitch man! Two 680's should be able to push it. As long as NVIDIA adds an SLI profile we should be ok.....Unless its truly a system burner. Then NO ONE will be able to run it maxed out to begin with.

    Crysis and Metro 2033 come to mind. Nothing could run them at 60FPS sustained when they came out.

    CR said he wants SC to be "the next Crysis" in this manner.
    I don't expect anybody to be able to max out the final product, even on today's top-end hardware.
    In fact, I'm a bit worried that my two 7970s at 1100 won't be enough for high settings at 1440p.

    That would be sweet if I could get by with another GTX680. I really hope they let us start pre-loading DFM, before the 29th or it's going to be a mess.

    I can't afford it.....But I sure hope you are right. Let the PC world burn.

    I feel like it would be an injustice to not play this game at 4k... heres to hoping I can take a second mortgage to make that happen

    Well, he did also say not to let that worry the folks that can't afford multi-thousand-dollar PCs, as even lowest settings will look good and run well on most current hardware... at least that's the plan.

    I'm in the camp of watching the world burn. Sometimes I just want to see it burn.

    "Some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn."
    Sometimes, I feel sad for you, TMM. I'm sure your PC will handle the DFM just fine, which should be a good indicator of how the final, polished and optimized, product will run in the stressful sections.

    Sad why? I'm just honest with people without the binds of societies judgment. Does it make for some lively conversations? Yup. Has it cost me money? Sure. Have I been punched in the face? Yup. But the difference is I'm not hiding my real views. I would rather be known as a honest psychopath than a polite liar. Seriously we should get beers sometime soon. I think you'll understand me more in person.

    Now back to topic, I hope my PC hardly runs it. Seriously the master PC race deserves a game of pure pain after almost a decade of console ports.

    Nothing better than a beer with your favorite sociopath. :D

    About the game, the amount of polys these guys are pushing is great.
    Too many times have I been let down by the low resolution textures and blocky models.
    I want my PC to beg for mercy under the barrage of millions upon millions of Polys :D



    Imagine them tacking on Tessellation on top of all these Polys!!

    Way to go, CIG. I bet Blair is to blame for this.
    That being said, I do still play ULTIMATE Online on a friend's private server now and then. Can't wait for Garrity's new title. :p
