Even though the majority of the footage we have seen of this game stems from the Xbox One X edition of Anthem, it seems that the BioWare-developed title is going to have some PC exclusive visual attributes courtesy of Nvidia. The graphics card giant revealed an Anthem CES 2019 trailer that showed off a new character class or javelin as BioWare calls it, new locales, also revealed that Anthem would support Nvidia’s DLSS tech (profound learning supersampling). Nvidia claims DLSS is capable of being twice as effective as other anti-aliasing methods, allowing for sharper picture quality minus performance penalties associated with anti-aliasing. Remember that you’ll require an Nvidia RTX GPU to find the most of it, which makes the RTX 2060 statement a timely one as it’s the most inexpensive version capable of taking advantage of DLSS.
“By combining traditional pc images and deep learning, DLSS represents another step in operation for us,” explained Jon Warner, Game Director at BioWare at a post on Nvidia’s website. “We’re eager to partner with Nvidia to deliver RTX technology to Anthem.”
Anthem is outside on February 22 for PC, Xbox One, also PS4. In case you have neither of them you can check it out from February 1 to 3.
Along with this, the game is not going to have loot boxes or pay-to-win items. In fact the developers have worried that you will know what you are getting before you buy it.
Formerly, EA confirmed Anthem’s delay to 2019, saying it doesn’t have anything to do with the game’s development, instead it needs Anthem to compete on its own terms in its release window which does not clash with other games such as Battlefield V.
“Regardless of how it’s being depicted, we are not seem at this as a delay, we’ve selected to launch Anthem at [the fourth quarter]. The date is preferred by by portfolio equilibrium, not product openness,” EA CEO Andrew Wilson said in a call to investors. “And we are really excited by the way the new Battlefield is shaping up. As a new IP, it probably makes sense to give [Anthem] its launch window.”
