Killzone 2!

1 Comment

After playing but mostly watching my friend play Killzone 2 from start to finish (almost!) on the ps3 I have been blown away by the game! I have been getting really interested in rendering techniques of late and the visuals and cinematic effects used in killzone 2 are like nothing I have ever seen before in video game. Here are a couple of great “making of” videos for the game which cover the following areas of interest..

  • The deferred rendering engine
  • A demonstration of the rendering pipeline at each stage
  • Cinematic effects (pixel speeds/motion blur/noise/bloom etc)
  • A look at a ps3 devkit
  • A tour around a debug build of the game
  • The use of the PS3’s SPU’s
  • The sound technology and layers used within the game
