This is footage is made by CryTek (the people who brought us FarCry) on the DX10 API, shown at the PDC Microsoft Conference. It looks simply amazing.

Despite the fact there are currently no cards that support DX10, Crytek managed to pull off a demo at PDC 2005 using software layering to show what to expect when the DX update & cards are out. They used the Farcry environment to show:
Dynamic Day/Night Cycle

Fully interactive environments

Sunrays + Diffuse transmissions

Real-time soft shadows & Soft particles

Interactive/destructive environments

Volumetric clouds

and last but not least, Advanced shader technology! Video: Crytek DirectX 10 Demo 4.34 MB (.AVI)

Forget the clouds, I want the whole island. Minus all the blokes with guns though, it's hardly a tropical paradise if it's infested with nutters.

That's part of the reason I play "FarCry" almost as much as FB/PF. Even with the old game it's absolutely friggin amazing to look at. What fun....

But will the game actually have any playability? Or are we going to be sat there watching clouds in a trance all day?
