Sony demonstrates its Warhawk flight combat game at the Game Developers Conference 2006. This update to the PlayStation game features more ambient warfare, meaning it’s not only you who’s in the action, but the general environment is that of warfare. So the sky will be pretty crowded–but Sony doesn’t reveal how exactly crowded it’s going to get.
The demo’s focus put the player’s plane up against massive airships that hover above a procedurally rendered ocean surface. Getting in close to the airship reveals some impressive detail, like weathered metal surfaces and very nice lighting effects. The game also appears to be able to push particles around very well, as evidenced in the tracer fire being shown in the demo.
