The lights are on
Mafia developer Warhorse Studios is working on an untitled medieval RPG, set to be released in 2014 or 2015. A recent YouTube video showcases a tech demo of the project, which is build on a modified version of CryEngine 3.
It isn't the most crystal clear footage, but you can notice some tiny details throughout the course of this nearly ten-minute video. Check it out below.

Very nice. I'm so relieved to see next-Gen announcements slowly leak out, I.e. Watch Dogs, 1313, possible MGS V.
This is just the kind of power refresh we've needed. Hopefully the big guys can put out some original, unique consoles and let the software teams play to their heart's content with the next-gen tech.
Some of the footage looks wonderful! It does get me excited for what next-gen can bring. Not only for realistic graphics, but other types of art styles as well. I do wonder what studios and their artists can do with styles that deviate from trying to be ultra realistic.
Nice! I hope alot of the next-gen developers decide to make games in the past instead of the current trend of future-ising things. I'm kind of tired of futuristic.
I may be wrong, but isn't Mafia developer called 2K Czech? And I think that Warhorse was formed by industry veteran, including former Mafia developers. Anyway, the game looks nice.
Looks pretty good.
Wow. That's nice.
YES! Ive been wanting a medievil RPG with CryEngine 3 for so long!
@ idostuff Well you already need millions of dollars to develop for consoles as it is.
You have to have publicity and marketing and you of course need a lot of money.
Consider the average paycheck of a designer or programmer.
This is way below average but imagine a game like Skyrim which has over a hundred people but lets say a hundred people who earn $10000 each ( which you earn more annually at McDonalds).
Well the game takes 5 years so $10000 multiplied by the number of people 100 and the number of years lets say 5.
$1000000 X 5 equals $5,000,000. Of corse our talking about smaller games but still I'm saying most peoe do t realize how much games truly cost to make. Cause I mean most people will be earning anywhere from $30,000 to $50,000 and leads can earn nearly a $100,000 or in he case of Call of Duty the head founders were making a million dollars.
