Looks like I€m going to have to upgrade my PC again with all of those planes flying overhead. I wonder how many planes they can have in the air at one time without a major frame hit.

It's obvious those are in-game and edited.

Notice the similarities between those and SH3.

Trust me they are not Screenshots. There are concept art.

Guys, every website that has those up has confirmed they are in-game screenshots.

You can tell by the lower resolution, if they were truly hi-def pre-rendered art you coudl notice.

The reason they look better than in SHIII is because they have rewritten aspects of the graphics engine to include more shader effects, and in one interview a dev said how they found a way to significantly increase the polygon count for ships without sacrificing framerate. So, higher poly ships, higher resolution maps, and shader effects (like the sunlight diffusing through the water sub-surface) have been implemented.

They've already been confirmed as screenshots.

Well I am a professional cynic. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Time will tell. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

In the meantime we can get hot and bothered over what may or may not be. And who says that the final version will be what we see now. The Devs had big plans for SH3 but *ahem* executive decisions truncated those plans and the code is in your SH3 right now but unused.

So far, everthing is just peachy, like Ubi wants. Marketing Exercise 101. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Screenshots or concept art.

Really, what does it matter... there are still 6 more months at least before we see anything playable and everything is subject to change. Notice how number of the items in promotional video has been recycled from SHIII.

If you ask me, it was not the graphics that are in a dire need of improvement in the silent hunter saga. In my opinion, SHIII is sufficient on graphics, but lacks other things.

But then again, I am not asking anyone to agree with me.

If they are screenshots the ame will not run on any PC to date. Look ot the moonlight one. that cant be a screenshot. And the game isint farenough in delvpment to have completed ships yet.

first of all shulz the video cards that made sh4 will be released this december. by the looks of the shader effects thats a direct x 10 game, a high end computer can run sh4 rite now.

a high end computer has 2 have

Intel Core 2 Duo extreme cpu around 1000$
dual ATI X1950 XTX in crossfire
A top of the line socket 775 crossfire motherboard
1 kilowatt psu for stability
4gb dual channel ddr2 ram
and 2 150gb raptors in raid 0
and 2 500gb in raid 1

that type of computer will run sh4 with ease.

i know cuz i have a 3000$ gaming computer that pumps out 200 fps in sh3 in a convoy attack. and around 145 fps in dock with AA and AF maxxed out. my trusty 7800 GT hasnt dissapointed me yet.

The game isn't far enough along in develpment to have completed ships yet.

It's nice to know that you are privy to all the goings on in development. lol

The Game develmont started a month or 2 ago I think.
