Anthem 4K videos on PC

Anthem 4K videos on PC

Anthem is available to all those who have subscribed to EA Access, so we finally put our money down to try the game ourselves. Since Gamersyde has never been high profile enough to be on EA's safe list for early reviews, we didn't have much of a choice if we wanted to be able to share videos before everyone starts playing the game. The following footage was recorded in borderless mode with ultra settings. Our RTX 2080 Ti still struggles a bit to maintain a steady framerate, but it's not too bad considering the resolution and all the effects on screen.

For BioWare's sake, I really hope this sells. After Apex Legends, which must have cost 1/100 or even less of the cost of Anthem, this at least needs to make some profit for EA.

Ironic and funny that for all the gorgeous visuals and awesome special effects of Anthem, a AAA game with a huge budget behind it, I barely had fun playing it. Just spent over 7 hours straight playing Crackdown 3 and had a lot of fun.

Technically speaking, Anthem blows Crackdown 3 in every single department, except for the one that counts the most: fun factor. Reminds me of comparisons people make sometimes between boring AAA games and great fun indie games. Higher budget doesn't necessarily means better, just more technically advanced.

I don't think the success of Apex Legends puts additional pressure on Bioware's performance.

Gamersyde recently you cover new games only on PC ! I don't have PC and don't like PC for playing I just want to c some 4k footage on consoles. So plz like 2018 and before! Beside your dear PC give us some PS4 pro or one x footage too from metro and anthem and new games.

We cover the games we are sent. So unless you want us to buy the console versions, there is nothing we can do about the fact that we mostly get PC versions. We did give Anthem some Xbox One X coverage one or two weeks ago, Kingdom Hearts 3 too, to name just a couple of examples. Crackdown 3 should get some Xbox One X footage soon too. We do our best to satisfy everyone but it's not always our decision. We asked for a console code for Metro but they had none left and we can't afford to buy the games ourselves. I do understand that it can be a bit disappointing for some of you guys, but be sure we'll keep giving console versions the coverage they deserve as much as possible.

I can‘t disagree any more! I‘m glad you guys show us the best possible version and it‘s obvious on PC!
I am not interested in the low-end versions on weak console hardware...

If Bioware were to get liquidated I don't know how much of a loss it is anymore. EA already sorta ruined them.

They're one of EA's largest studios. They're not getting liquidated no matter how hard you wish for it.

I believe it does, not in sales or commercial, because both games are completely different from one another. But because of "optics", a short development game with low costs making far more sucess than a game who took 6-7 years and cost a whole lot more.

Executives and specially shareholders will definitely question that about it. It`s about "investment x profit", and projects released so close to each other are inevitable measured against one another, even if they are very different

I still enjoy their games, Dragon Age: Inquisition was a very good game, if only too much grindy like a MMO. And Mass Effect: Andromeda was very good, but suffered heavily from bugs and the open-world aspect, which introduced a lot of fetch quests and empty huge environments just to make it bigger.

If BioWare returns to their root and just make games how they used to, not trying to turn them into a MMO or open-world for no reason, I`m sure their games will be much better, the public and the critics will definitely notice that. They`re not bad developers, they`re just misguided, for lack of a better word.

People said the same before about many other EA studios. Nevermind us, why lie to yourself like that? No EA studio is safe and we all know it.

They just explained why they can't do console footage all the time and it is not for your childish reasons. Funny PC is the best to you and yet most of the time in PC footage there is no HDR option whatsoever.

EA knows that there's no magic formula. Just because Apex was a success and presumably cost much less to make (although Respawn did cost EA ~$455M), it doesn't mean that they can repeat that success. If people knew how to launch games as successfully as Apex, they'd do it constantly. Should they take a step back and greenlight work on smaller projects? Probably.

EA needs to change their approach. So does Activision.
