Shared world shooter Anthem Includes a Launch date of February 22 for PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
Even though the majority of the footage we have seen of this game stems from the Xbox One X version of Anthem, it seems that the BioWare-developed title is going to have some PC exclusive visual features courtesy of Nvidia. The graphics card giant disclosed an Anthem CES 2019 trailer which showed a new character class or javelin since BioWare calls it, new locales, also revealed that Anthem would encourage Nvidia’s DLSS technician (profound learning supersampling). Nvidia claims DLSS is capable of being twice as efficient as other anti-aliasing methods, allowing for sharper picture quality without any performance penalties related to anti-aliasing. Keep in mind you’ll require an Nvidia RTX GPU to get the most of it, making the RTX 2060 statement a timely one as it’s the most inexpensive version capable of taking advantage of DLSS.
“By combining traditional pc graphics and profound learning, DLSS signifies the next step in operation for us,” explained Jon Warner, Game Director in BioWare at a post on Nvidia’s blog. “We’re eager to partner with Nvidia to deliver RTX technologies to Anthem.”
Anthem is out on February 22 for both PC, Xbox One, also PS4. Origin Access Premier members can be the first to play the full game with unlimited access on PC beginning February 15, and EA Access and Origin Access Basic members may enjoy up to 10 hours of play time as part of the Play First Trial. If you’ve got neither of them you can look it over from February 1 to 3.
In addition to this, the sport is not going to have loot boxes or pay-to-win products. In fact the developers have worried you will know what you’re getting before you get it.
Formerly, EA affirmed Anthem’s delay to 2019, saying it doesn’t have anything to do with the game’s development, rather it needs Anthem to compete on its own terms in its release window which doesn’t clash with other games like Battlefield V.
“Regardless of how it’s being portrayed, we’re not look at that as a delay, we have selected to start Anthem in [the fourth quarter]. The date is chosen by portfolio balance, not product openness,” EA CEO Andrew Wilson said in a call to investors. “And we are really excited by how the new Battlefield is forming up. As a new IP, it likely makes sense to give [Anthem] its own launch window”
