The more you know: What Oblivion looks like while running on CryEngine 2


7:58 PM on 04.14.2008



We all know how unbelievably gorgeous Crysis is, but what if the technology used to power the game was applied to something like, I don't know, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion? Would we be able to handle the pure sexiness of it all?

Find out for yourself by watching the video above or by downloading this higher-resolution version that'll fetch greater results. It's been a long time since I've played Oblivion, so perhaps I've let my mind create a mental image of how fantastic it looked to me back then and as a result, didn't see a huge difference between the switch to CryEngine 2.

But after viewing the downloadable video, everything looked leaps and bounds better, not just the foliage like the embed video would have me believe; it also helped that I did a quick Google image search to see how fuzzy my memory really was.

Above all, this video made me realize how badly I want Bethesda to create a new Elder Scrolls with those kinds of graphics.
