    To READ: NOT new map, same crap HD, gj

  2. GamingW/War says:

    The maps look nice but I have a question or two. First are they fixing the maps when they are making them in HD? Because as we have been told they are not releasing new maps this year. Second are they finally using the havoc engine we where promised back in 9.0? That might be interesting to say the least.

      As u see destroyed objects collapse in pieces, it is probably small use of Havoc. I guess there is problem with optimisation so for now they are using it only on small objects

  3. Joel A Breger says:

    The objects look great. The lighting is still way to yellow. It needs a bit more red in it.

  4. Liam says:

    No they are making and changes to the maps only (DETAIL)

  5. Did that tank really get wet, or I just want to believe it did? 😀

  6. Anonymous says:

    They did one hell of a thing, the maps look just so much better than the crap we have on PC right now.

    That’s been posted here already a lomg while ago.

    Wow, new footage, it’s so good that we finally see it here after 2 months! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RF12Nih1g4

  9. I have seen this.
    Maybe from here too.
    But there were no subtitles.
    If you are good with russian-Jove on youtube.

    Hey Wargaming PC, here is a novel idea….. How about giving us back our old maps that we ALL enjoyed, instead of deciding on your own what is best for us? The US Console division gets it, why can’t you hard headed Belarusian’s get it?

    • Long story short, game balance, physics update, and integration from an environment several patches ago is expensive as you’d probably end up rebuilding the map from scratch.

      Otherwise, it’s a decent idea but making anything HD is cheaper than rebuilding something from scratch. There are alternatives like building a map for only low graphic settings but that’s a whole new bag of worms and not an absolute solution.

      Console could get away with it because their specs don’t change as much as PC and they have a core system they can always count on. There are other small details you skimmed over but that’s the summary of the counter argument.

    I think, it is fresher with 2 months: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMfV96MrIWQ 😉

    probably just XBONE/PS4 footage XD

  13. Iron_Tsunami says:

    Now I’m skeptical of this whole thing. Havoc engine was supposedly scrapped a long time ago, yet here they are baiting us with it again. What changed?

  14. MrDobalina says:

    this looks fucking awesome :O still wondering how they wanna make these graphics run on potato machines

    It’s like that girl you met in highschool a bit overweight.

    Now she’s been working out for the past 5 years, got a banging boob job, is all dolled up and ready to party.

    I like it.

  16. wolvenworks says:

    wait i thought they shelved Havok physics indefinetly? did they suddenly get the urge to work on it again now?

  17. Me says:

    I am very doubtful about that CellFactor-like objects destruction. Certainly looks epic, but judging by how big fucktards wargaming is, it is just some demo features that will be implemented SOON (aka NEVER).

  18. Too bad all the russian potato powered laptops and PCs won’t be able to enjoy these, but hey that’s their problem

  19. shiramakun says:

    Looks pretty good, cant wait to play this in 2177
