Shared world shooter Anthem has a release date of February 22 for PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
While the majority of the footage we’ve seen of the game stems from the Xbox One X version of Anthem, it seems that the BioWare-developed name will have some PC exclusive visual features courtesy of Nvidia. The graphics card giant revealed that an Anthem CES 2019 trailer which showed 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 becoming twice as efficient as other anti-aliasing methods, allowing for better picture quality minus performance penalties related to anti-aliasing. Keep in mind you’ll need an Nvidia RTX GPU to get the most of it, making the RTX 2060 statement a timely one as it is the most inexpensive version capable of taking advantage of DLSS.
“By merging traditional computer graphics and profound learning, DLSS represents another step in performance for us,” explained Jon Warner, Game Director in BioWare at a post on Nvidia’s website. “We’re excited to partner with Nvidia to bring RTX technologies to Anthem.”
Anthem is outside on February 22 for both PC, Xbox One, also PS4. If you have neither of these you can look it over from February 1 to 3.
Along with this, the sport is not going to have loot boxes or pay-to-win products. In fact the developers have stressed that you will know what you are getting before you get it.
Previously, EA affirmed Anthem’s delay to 2019, stating it doesn’t have anything to do with the game’s development, rather it wants Anthem to compete on its own terms in its release window that doesn’t clash with other games such as Battlefield V.
“Regardless of how it’s being depicted, we are 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 the way the new Battlefield is shaping up. It probably does not make too much sense to launch Anthem right by it. As a new IP, it likely makes sense to give [Anthem] its own launch window”
