A user on Imgur has uploaded an album that has got to be one of the best screenshot comparison of any game we’ve ever seen. We tried a few from time to time, but the comparisons here are probably the closest you’ll find for a while. Take a look at the comparison shots below and click on the image to see it in full size.

Yes we understand that the game hasn’t been released yet and so on, but the trailers have been made from gameplay and the screenshots found in the GI article were also gameplay screenshots. The PS3 version of the game was also used for Gameinformer’s preview.

  1. I would not trust any "in game" or "in engine" video before a game&#039s release. Many game engines have a special mode for rendering these videos, such that they appear at a much higher quality than you will actually see when playing the game live. Basically, the engine records the player input to a file, then this file is played back frame by frame, with the engine rendering the shot multiple times with a slightly jittered camera view with higher quality assets and effects. These shots are combined to produce a level of anti-aliasing you would never see when playing the game on your console or PC (this process could even be run on a console with the resulting video frames dumped to the developer&#039s PC, so it would look like it was actual console footage).
