When you take a close look at the release calendar for 2014, it’s easy to note the number of games which have been delayed. Many of those games may have lucked out in that regard since more time and polish can help them achieve visual greatness. From that perspective, what are some of the most graphically intensive games to look forward to this year? Which games will leave their mark on the industry when 2015 eventually closes?

That being said, we’ve omitted some games like Call of Duty 2015 and Assassin’s Creed: Victory since there’s been almost no information on how they look (aside from the odd leaked screenshot from Victory), much less speculation on what the finished product could ultimately be. That doesn’t mean they aren’t worth looking forward to but the spotlight will be on those games which have already made their visual mark on the masses.

Dying Light

Dying Light

You wouldn’t guess Techland’s Dying Light to be one of the more graphically intensive games of the year until you actually play it. The sensation of running, the wind blowing against you as foliage flies by and rain beats against your face, is unmatched in this generation thus far. Techland has employed some rather interesting post-processing and an SMAA T2X anti-aliasing solution for all versions of the game. While the PS4 and Xbox One versions may not adhere to the locked 30 FPS frame rate promised, they still look incredibly good.

Despite the limited colour palette, Dying Light’s combination of open world wreckage and attention to detail makes it one of the snazzier open world games currently available. Its scale doesn’t challenge GTA 5 by any means but you’ll still feel part of a larger city more often than not.

    I would hardly call Battlefield Hardline “Intensive”. More like DICE screwed the pooch again and Frostbite needs a major, major rework.

      Not developed by DICE

  • Starman

    Bloodborne ? pre-rendered back grounds …Linear ,stiff and that’s the best they can do , they hide the stiff movement and mechanics of the body with a trench coat And why are you guys at GB so stuck on graphics being the first priority ???

  • Psionicinversion

    Dying Light isnt intensive it was just badly optimised

    • Derek

      Yeah not a big fan of the grainy film look either.

  • TomDobo

    Halo 5 will look much better at launch. Can’t wait to see how it looks

  • matt

    Mariokart8 beats them all Zero BUGS with nextgen textures and animation and a steady as 60fps as it gets,oh and lots of colour vibrant colours are more taxing on hardware no one seems to talk about that.

  • matt

    All them games listed are just good looking games with either a lack of action,poor framerates,screen tear everywhere,bugs everywhere,broken online,not open world,basically graphic and gameplay trickery everywhere….wait for Starfox,Xenoblade,Devils Third,Zelda,and even Fast Racing Neo these games will be the best finished with zero bugs games this year and thats FINAL….

    • Derek

      Nintendo anyone

  • matt

    Microsoft and Sony are just willing to sacrifice anything in a game just to make it look better graphically even if it means keeping the same gameplay as last gen ?? COD,UNCHARTERED,SECONDSON,everything has last gen gameplay and with only small advances in graphics in some cases just speaks volumes for how much BULLCRAP sony talks when promoting there consoles and there power,the ps5 will do 240fps at 4k and in reality it will do 1080p/60fps or a little more on simple games.

    Nintendo have shown advances in graphics and gameplay look at Bayonetta2 yes Platinum said Nintendo helped step up the gameplay in Bay2 google it,Zelda wiiu shows nextgen gameplay,so does XenobladeX,and DevilsThird is said to have online that screws Battlefield/COD so i just think Nintendo are bringing the games and if Nintendo did bring a new console out like the rumoured FUSION with Power8 cpu’s ect in 2017 then it will be curtains for Microsoft/Sony.

  • Gaikai

    Why is Halo 5 on this list? the beta looks like a last gen game, and i’m sure that the final game won’t look much better anyways

  • Mark

    Nice article Ravi. I think Star Wars BF will amaze

  • Davorin Jurisic

    Battlefield Hardline isn’t a battlefield any more. They are ruining a military fps franchise to make a GTA style clone! Idiots. Bring us Battlefield Bad Company 3 instead!

  • Soda Popinski

    Why are Uncharted 4, Division, Quantum Break, and Zelda WiiU even on this list?? This articles headline says “…games of 2015”, these games have officially been confirmed 2016 release, therefore should clearly not apply..

  • Mustavi Sadi Aryan

    Why is Assassin’s Creed Syndicate not on the list?

  • Liam Phoenix

    Yeah, page one of twenty three, and I’ve already closed two ads?

    Not happening, even if it does look like it might be interesting.
