Built using Unreal Engine 3, Da Vinci THD is the first full game to appear for Tegra 3 devices, and seems to be packing some serious online FPS gameplay. The game is set during the Renaissance, just after Da Vinci's death, when "heroes of [the] Renaissance" begin battling to capture a mysterious machine created by the famed inventor and artist. The real story, though, is Da Vinci's gameplay.

Players can explore beautifully crafted environments, and utilize powerful weapons while battling with (or against) other players online. What's interesting about Da Vinci, is that there is a PC version in the works as well, which will open up a much larger opportunity for rich online play. The game also boasts sophisticated visuals, including dynamic character lighting and gamma correction, as well as "advanced physics simulations."

According to NVIDIA's Tegra Zone website, we can expect Da Vinci THD in January 2012. Until then, we'll just have to drool over the official trailer and screenshots.

        I know it's cliche, but I don't know if I should laugh or cry right now...

        I hope we can buy controllers like the one gamestop ships to control this.

      To be fair the Xbox 360 is from 2005 and by 2014 Crysis 2 will be very out of date.

    Check the character select screen section of the Vid. Looks like the characters are doing some funky grind dance, especially the chick. Looked like a selection screen for a club, not a game :P

    is that video really bad quality for anyone else?

    it's supposed to be 720p and yet it was blocky as hell for me. looked like really bad encoding.

      that was probably done on purpose, cuz it seems to be just the actual gameplay, so it may just be blurry cam for a game trailer, don't know why they would do that though....

    woah! impressive !

  • Letroy

    This is what people expected from Tegra 2 before it's release.

      Except Nvidia has proven the Tegra 3 to be more powerful than the Tegra 2. :P
