The new Ryse build still shows some flaws mainly screen tearing


Screen tearing was the biggest culprit for effecting the Image Quality of PS3/360 games. Microsoft’s Albert Penello confirmed that the new Ryse trailer is entirely from a new build that runs on Xbox One with the upgraded CPU/GPU. It looks exceptional for sure. Unfortunately, as it turns out, it doesn’t seem to be completely free from screen tearing.

The new trailer showcases the story of Ryse and focuses on its main character “Marius”. During one of the scenes, that was also shown at E3 2013, there seems to be extensive screen tearing – which really distracts from the action on screen. We decided to take a look back at the E3 2013 footage, which was supposedly running on dev kits and not real Xbox One at E3 2013 – We couldn’t notice any such tearing present there at all.


The screen tearing here appears more distracting because of how it is right in the middle of the screen. The scene in question doesn’t seem to be that demanding so it is strange to see tearing pop up here.

While it might be entirely possible that the screen tearing in question might be just a mistake, we hope that Microsoft and Crytek try their best to eliminate it from the final game. History has proven that if done right, tearing can be completely eliminated or at least hidden in such a way that it is barely visible. You can view the scene in question below.

We have reached out to Microsoft’s Albert Penello to ask for a comment on this matter. We will update this story once we get a response.

        You are evil, lying, hypocritical, worthless, mentally diseased fanboy waste.

        Just another mentally ill microsoft fanboy that can’t handle the reality that Xbox One’s hardware is weaker than PS4’s for gaming graphics performance.

        Apparently PS4’s stronger hardware, ~3.7 million sales lead, large number of 1st party developers, more games, and more developer support have microsoft fanboys extremely upset, causing them to spread lies, ignorance, and hatred. Thankfully everyone is ignoring these deranged children and buying PS4s like hotcakes anyway.

        8.2+ million PS4s and counting. Nothing you say will stop it, you are helpless. Keep lying and hating while everyone else ignores you.

        Look, another dumb delusional microsoft fanboy shill that has no clue about technology or sales, it just wants to fling feces and scream “XBOX WON!!1”.

        You are clearly malicious and here to spread lies, hatred, and ignorance. Nothing you say is remotely constructive or factual.

        It’s not healthy to hate pieces of plastic and people who like playing video games on them. Some severely mentally ill microsoft fanboys are upset at PS4’s success and have to spread hate and lies about it, apparently.

        Disqus is swarming with dumb, hateful, delusional, feces flinging ms fanboys constantly invading disqus and spreading lies, ignorance, and hatred. Like “BANKRUPT!!1”, “DOWNGRADE!!1”, “NOGAMES DELAY INDIESTATION!!1”, “RUNS BETTER ON XBOX!!1” and “SONY LIED!!1”.

        It’s sad PS4 is dominating so badly that hateful, delusional microsoft fanboy shills are left desperately wishing Sony would go bankrupt. Keep dreaming, it’s not happening.

        PS4 will have the graphics advantage the entire gen. PS4 hardware and software will outsell Xbox globally the entire gen. PS4 will have more dev support and more 1st party games the entire gen. Sony still has a large number of 1st party studios and they’re all working on PS4 games. PS4 will make a net profit, and Sony won’t go bankrupt.

        Microsoft and Mattrick, Hyrb, Penello, Greenberg, Medhi, Spencer, etc. have been making the arrogant anti-consumer PR blunders, spin, lies, and BS this gen, not Sony. That’s why PS4 is ~3.7 million ahead in sales.

        PS4 is selling on price/performance, the best visuals on console multiplats, better PR, and the promise of Sony 1st party games (Naughty Dog, GoW, Gran Turismo, etc). Watch Dogs on PS4 sold about 2 million out of the 4 million total claimed by Ubisoft.

        PS4 will keep selling like hotcakes based on superior multiplats alone, and bundles with Destiny and Watch Dogs. Destiny month will be huge for PS4 bundles. PS4 is 8.2+ million and counting sold to consumers.

        Both Wii U and Xbox One have good exclusive games. Does that mean they’ll start outselling PS4 globally? No. Multiplats are more important to most console gamers and PS4 has an advantage. PS4 will outsell Xbox globally the entire gen.

        Exclusively 1080p 60 FPS games on PS4: MGS V, CoD Ghosts, FFXIV, Tomb Raider, MLB The Show 14, Resogun, Trials Fusion, Diablo 3, Project Cars, Metro Redux, more.

        Factual PS4 Hardware Advantages: +6 CUs, +540 GFlops (40% greater) or more, +16 ROPs, +6 ACEs/CQs, better GPGPU support (volatile bit and onion+ gpu cache bypass bus), better performing CPU, faster unified memory, and less OS overhead.

        If they’re both running at the same resolution the Xbox version will have lower framerate and/or visual effects, or the PS4 hardware isn’t being pushed. Any game running on Xbox One can be run with better framerate/resolution/visual effects on PS4.

        Every console or gaming device has a power budget that can be put towards resolution, framerate, or visual effects. PS4 has a higher total budget than Xbox, and good PCs have an even higher budget.

        Forza 5 would run better on PS4, and Driveclub would run worse on Xbox. Quantum Break would run better on PS4, and The Order would run worse on Xbox.

        PS4 has the superior visuals on all console AAA multiplats, more dev support including indies, a large number of first party studios, free to play games and MMOs, and unannounced 1st party games. Titanfall 2 and future 3rd party games will almost certainly be on PS4.

        1st/2nd party studios include Japan Studio, Polyphony Digital, Naughty Dog, SCE Bend, SCE San Diego, SCE Santa Monica, Sucker Punch, Pixel Opus, Evolution Studios, Guerrilla Games, Guerrilla Cambridge, SCE London, Media Molecule, Insomniac, Ready at Dawn, Quantic Dream, etc.

        PS4 games not on Xbox One: Killzone, inFamous Second Son & First Light, Dynasty Warriors 8, Final Fantasy XIV, War Thunder, DC Universe, Yakuza Isshin and other Japanese games, MLB 14 The Show, Bound by Flame, Injustice Gods Among Us, Knack, Natural Doctrine, Uncharted, Planetside 2, Dragon Ball Z, MotoGP, Deep Down, Driveclub, The Last of Us Remastered, The Witness, The Order, LittleBigPlanet 3, Entwined, Bloodborne, Let It Die, Rachet & Clank, Kingdom Under Fire 2, Tropico 5, Guilty Gear Xrd, Samurai Warriors 4 and a ton of indies including Resogun.

        PS4 rest of 2014 exclusives: The Last of Us Remake, Driveclub, LittleBigPlanet 3, Infamous: First Light, Samurai Warriors 4, Natural Doctrine, Guilty Gear Xrd, Singstar, Resogun DLC, and lots of indies.

  • themuIe

    Ryse’s main flaw is that it exists.

  • zara

    Let’s just wait and see who will have the last laugh…. SONY Haha!

  • willhe

    the main flaw is in a sony fan boy that will look closely at even freakin elbows just because they have no games to play at launch. write an article about knack crashing putz

    • ano1batman

      This game has already been released. But with less QTEs, its called God of War.

      • willhe


      • HalfBlackCanadian

        Not really. GoW had plenty of QTE’s and looking at demos this looks exactly the same type of gameplay

        • psyrakan

          The QTE on Gow it’s for a final Epic move on boss fight not every 5 sec fighting mobs

          • HalfBlackCanadian

            Wrong on so many levels.
            QTEs in GoW happened with anything above a standard undead soldier. And if you didn’t execute properly you didn’t kill the enemy (unless you failed it a few times and finally the enemy would just die a standard death; every time you failed a ATE some enemy HP was regained). Otherwise the game was mashing X, the occasional Triangle, and the prompted QTE button. Ryse has style finishes for anybody. You don’t have to do any of them, and it’s not one canned option. More than anything they are contextual animations based on enemy placements and amount. Theoretically if you mash X like GoW you will, at certain points, activate a finisher anyway because that will happen to be the appropriate button at the time.

          • psyrakan

            so i guest that Ryse will be the Gow killer after all these years have fun lol

          • HalfBlackCanadian

            Honestly, it might be…GoW has been stale since 3. It’s literally the exact same game over 3 consoles (well, two and a handheld). If this can bring something new into the genre, why not? Still haven’t played it so I’ll leave it at that until I play a finished build.

          • psyrakan

            guess will have to wait and c man

      • Usman Khan

        Greek mythologies are in games before God of war was considered. God of war is not original. this type of stories has already been done before GoW.

    • HalfBlackCanadian

      Can’t blame them, they have no news of their own to even look at (unless they want reminders of delayed games)

      • psyrakan

        yes you right at launch yeeeeeeeeees, yet again if you go back from 2010 to 2013 ps3 exclusive games number vs the xbox 360 you’ll there’s know worry sony about feeding he’s console ,on the other side the last i try to have fun with my xbox360 it was on a B team weak made gear of war and since nothin but have faith thing minght change nxtgen
