    Does anyone know much about this? I thought it was going DNF but development seems to be going strong, there's a trailer released and they've done demos at a few game cons. Unfortunately, the most details I've been able to find is this:

    They claim they're still going for a high level authenticity and trying to remain true to the community of the first game, and it will have 4 player coop campaign (pc) with 2 player coop for consoles.

    Hard to say though, it seems like they're taking a more commercial approach to this game. From the little in-game footage I've seen, the mechanics don't seem as detailed as ArmA and OF1. You don't see people changing FOV's on the fly, it doesn't seem like you can look independently of your weapon point, IS view is highly zoomed-in, sprinting looks more canned...all in all it looks more COD4-ish.

    It could still be good but it's frustrating that there's so little info. Same with ArmA2.

    The island setting they're using, and the graphics engine, are certainly impressive-looking though.

    Well early arma video's were also without freeaim. Just wait till its out i guess.

    Arma2 is starting to look quite finished imho. The gfx have improved drastically lately and bohemia always does gfx last.

    It's a really unknown quantity at this point.

    Could be the best thing since boobs, could be absolutely appalling. There's really very little hard info to go on.

    All the screenies and most of the video is pre-rendered.

    I keep seeing stuff wrong with the screenshots but half the time someone brings it up and they're fixing it.

    I'll never define OFP-2 "realistic", since it portrays US SOF with MP5s.
    Still can be a great game. :)

    Uhm, actually "US SOF" do use the MP5. It's just not the only weapon they use - or their main..

    4 player coop? the original ofp had at least 20 player coop (probably even more). Oh well ArmA is good enough for me atm. We'll see about ArmA2.

    Meh, arma, arma II, ofp2, they all look kinda suck. The graphics remind me of CSS.

    I tried playing Arma, but it was just too ugly. It had some realism, but nothing that couldn't be modded into Crysis. For such bad graphics, I expect a lot more realism calculations. Don't even get me started how bad the aircraft were.
    For those ugly graphics, I expect the realism of DCS: Black Shark. At least Crysis has the excuse of using all the power for their graphics.

    Now if someone could just put real flight and vehicle dynamics into Crysis, with some realistic weaponry, and one big ass map. Thats what Im waiting for.

    That and some realistic darkness.
