im confuse at the last scene.
His head got shredded yet theres still voice coming from him? the fuck?
I figured maybe his head was just slightly crushed in his helmet and he could still feel/process, but no. His head legit explodes lmao. Watched it frame by frame

My only complaint is that the lower-level enemies lack the unique enemy design of the Necromorphs. Even the lowest grunt in Dead Space looked unique. The first enemies here look like mere zombies.

Though to be fair, in Dead Space 2 and beyond, DS also created generic looking necromorphs.

Anyways, definitely my most anticipated game this year!

Yeah the necro's were a cool design, all of them really (my fave 'nugget arms').
I suppose if they make everything too Dead Space, EA could possibly take action or soemthing lol, especially with the DS remake releasing at a similar time.

That game has release date!? I thought they didn’t announce release date, so I half expected to be 2023 game.
Actually i'm not sure, but in some other threads i saw people saying stuff like 'DS Remake, Callisto Effect, Routune, all space horror games coming around the same time'. Still Callisto is November if it doesnt delay, and DS is almost certainly next year, and with it being more or less a graphical update, i wouldnt expect a super long dev time.
I suppose its just a figure of speach. Still Callisto is almost certainly coming first,which could annoy EA if it ended up near identicle to DS in all but name (i mean to me it already does that!)

Looks good, but I call bullshit.

Just how big of a downgrade you think the visuals will be in the *real game*?

I mean, does anybody really think the game is gonna look this good?





All studios been doing fake gameplay trailers for years. It's not only the worse scumbags like UBI, even top studios like NaughtyDog lie with the trailers... they all know it works to get the hype train running and they get away with it.

Eh? i do. There are loads of actual gameplay sequences in the extended tariler, and its certainly nothing that the next gen consoles shouldnt pull off. In fact the screens above reminded me of TLOU2 level of graphics, and that was a PS4 game.

I'm no graphic expert, the game has fantastic art direction and atmosphere but I dont think exactly "high tech".

Remember TLOU2 2018 bullshit trailer? ... final 2020 game was nothing like that trailer:






I bet we're gonna see *exactly* the same bullshit with Callisto, or worse...

The last gen versions wont look as good i'm sure, but if the Series and PS5 cant pull off this trailer then its going to be a long gen.

If people are starting to doubt real time footage is real,I think its a good sign this generation is finally starting to take off.
You mean "realtime footage" like the bullshit a top of the world studio like NaughtyDog (and all the others) have been feeding us for years?

If we were still on last gen, i could understand your feelings about this, but i would honestly be more worried if the Series and PS5 cant pull off this trailer (and again there are clear gameplay sections of the trailer). Its certainly a nice looking game but nothing groundbreaking or anything. In fact i have also seen a few people say they werent that impressed with the graphics (which is also a bit silly).

The game looks fantastic, just a few days ago someone made a thread asking why don't we get a lot of gore in games anymore especially given the modern tech, well there it is. Looks so disturbing, so good.

Well, that's precisely the point... the vast majority were NOT "realtime gameplay", but fake presentations they tried to pass as the real deal. We don't even have to go to the most extreme cases like Cyberpunk 2077, Watchdogs, Rainbow Six, The Division, ... as I said, even a studio like NaughtyDog is doing this shit.

All the qualities of this trailer screams bullshit to me: the ultradetailed models, perfect antialiasing, SSS, lighting, light bounces, volumetrics, high sampling motion-blur, perfect DOF with bokeh, ... in a cross-gen game for all consoles and PC from a small studio (even if they come from Dead Space)?? nope.

I bet the game will still be good, but the downgrade is gonna be painful.

It's possible. Definitely possible with the ps4 and x1x versions. Still doable in the current gen/pc versions, though.

We'll see.

The game looks fantastic.

That's the point. The trailer looks fantastic. Too fantastic. I bet the game is NOT gonna look like that. Most other studios, bigger and better ones, have been faking "gameplay" for years. And we ALL know that. But this is suddenly gonna top them all without doing it, on a crossgen game for all platforms made by a small studio?... I don't think so.

Maybe it was just a PC footage?

That's most definitely a pre-rendered cutscene. The gameplay segments are doable.

I didn't think they were doing pre-rendered stuff during gameplay anymore. But even counting out that one, unless all the others are pre-rendered too...
Returnal, for example, is an exclusive next-gen game, made also by a small studio, but for just ONE target next-gen machine, and it doesn't look this good.

I would love to be wrong about it and eat crow later at release, but come on, guys... who are we kidding? it's been years and years of all these studios pulling the same exact bullshit. How many times have we been fooled already?

Were you fooled by Demon's Souls?

Maybe one of the few exceptions, along God of War 2018. But Demon's Souls was a game made exclusively to be a visual showcase for ONE next-gen machine, which is a whole different thing than making a game for 5 platforms across 2 different generations. And even Demon's Souls doesn't look as good as many of the stuff in this trailer, despite being hard to compare games that are so different.

It's all the same AMD hardware, it's not like PS5 is using Cell 2 or something...

Edit:
And it's not like DS is some technical marvel, it's just polygons and textures, nice looking ones sure but still, it's like saying only Lambo can go this highway, Ferrari or McLaren wouldn't be able to.
