The story-driven and incredibly detailed new game from Bioware, Anthem, has a new trailer coming out of CES 2019.
The trailer is a pretty short teaser, but it does reveal some new elements of Anthem. Not only do we get a nice look at the high-end visuals, which should run at 4K on launch. The big focus for this whole gameplay trailer was to talk about the GeForce RTX 2080. This new GPU offering rendered some really beautiful environments that are seen throughout the trailer, so it’s worth a watch to see what this thing can do.
Bioware also gave out some details about the differences between the console and PC versions. The PC version will have support for Deep Learning Super-Sampling. This means that the newest generation of Nvidia supercomputing tech will help their GPUs deliver the best performance and quality possible. DLSS uses a form of machine learning to “train” a series of routines to take into account the demands of various games, and then optimize delivery of assets with the most efficient use of hardware and power. The company’s supercomputing cluster is constantly training with new data on new games, so improvements may roll out as time goes on, we’ll just have to wait and see. Early tests with DLSS in other games have shown pretty generous improvements in performance on high-end systems though.
Bioware and Electronic Arts are looking to deliver on a story-driven action game that’s much heavier on the narrative compared to lootfest games like Destiny. We’ll just have to wait and see what that turns out to be like.
Check out the trailer for Anthem down below. Anthem is due out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC next month on February 22.
