?We?ve been focused purely on the new generation of high-end technology from the very beginning of development? said Game Director Roland Lesterlin ?this huge amount of extra horsepower allows us to do things that simply weren?t possible until now?.

The Destruction Dev Diary takes a look at these things in action.
