NVIDIA VP Excited About World in Conflict
When a big name at a leading graphic chip maker says your game looks good...you take notice! NVIDIA VP Roy Taylor was recently interviewed by Next Gerneration News to get his take on new things coming to PC gaming and he had some great things to say about World in Conflict
Here is an exert from the article on Next Generation news:
"Currently, Crysis is one of best-looking DX10 games on the slate, and one that has garnered much of media's attention. But when asked to play favorites, Taylor names a different game that has impressed him the most from a graphical standpoint.
"That's an easy one: World in Conflict, which is going to be published by Vivendi [and developed by Massive Entertainment]. The first time I saw the nuke in the game, I was absolutely stunned. There are a lot of cliches in the software industry - oh my God, there are a lot of cliches - and one of them is, 'This will redefine gaming! Blah blah blah!' The one time that I'll say that a cliche isn't a cliche is this: World in Conflict genuinely blurs the line between RTS and first-person shooter. ... I'm really impressed with that."
