Dreadnaught 64-bit Demo

The Torc Interactive Website announces downloads are now available for a new 64-bit tech demo for Dreadnaught, a sample of this upcoming first-person shooter to show off AMD64 processors. The demo can be played on 32-bit systems, but contains enhancements specifically for 64-bit computing. The downloads page also offers screenshots and movies showing off the difference between the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the game. Here's word: "The Admiral Ushakov is an old Soviet Kirov class nuclear missile cruiser which disappeared in the Barents sea 4 years ago and was believed lost at sea with all hands. It reappeared off the coast of Iceland recently and is believed to have fallen into terrorist hands and is being used to carry out some sort of research. You are a US Special Forces operative sent to investigate, and if necessary steal or destroy the research and scuttle the Kirov. The demo kicks off once you’ve made your way into the interior of the ship."

By those 64-bit screenshots.

They look average at best for a PC game. Any number of 32-bit PC titles are far better-looking, including Doom 3,Half-Life 2, BF2, FEAR, Far Cry (32-bit), etc.

LOL, looks like all they did to get those '32-bit screenshots' was turn down the brightness. Actually, its painfully obvious.
