E3: Anthem presentation

E3: Anthem presentation

Anthem is certainly the most awe inspiring title of Microsoft's press conference visually (with Ori 2 maybe). So it was logical it would be our top priority to encode out of our brand new 4K capture hardware. Enjoy!

Is this just a capture from a stream?

I have a laptop with an i-7 Q6700HQ CPU running at 2.6 GHz and 8GB ram and nvidia 960M. Despite it all, I am unable to play 4K videos without serious frame chugging. I have used VLC, MPC HC and WMP 10 to no avail. Any help for finding suitable player or codecs would be most welcome.

And Thank you for the footages.

As nice as this looked, i am honestly expecting some serious ubisoft level downgrades by the time it hits store shelves. From what i can see there is no LOD pop in at all. Or very little. Which seems unfeasible even with 6 tf's

Anthem looks gorgeous, but most importantly, the gameplay looks realy fun. From simply running with boosters, to shooting, using powers and specially, flying like a freaking bad ass!

Anthem is being made by BioWare's A Team. When the player transitioned from air to water, and then back to air. I immediately thought with myself, this is everything that Mass Effect: Andromeda was supposed to have been. In a way, it's an evolution.

The fact that it is in 4K probably means that it was played in a extreme high-end PC or Xbox One X. Doesn't look "unnaturally" gorgeous like the first trailer for Watch Dogs 1 or Tom Clancy's The Division. Plus, just a year or year and a half away from release, provided that it isn't delayed.

Best game of the show so far for me, even more than A Way Out and Star Wars: Battlefront 2 - wjich had a great demo match. EA sure brought the thunder for this year's E3. Even their Sports games looked very nice. Now we just need Dead Space reboot or 4 - I just want more Dead Space.

PS. BlimBlim, any chance we can get a single file on torrent? Unless there's no problem joining the parts with a video editor.

You asked about Story in the "What's up?" chatbox window. Below is the Tweet from Corey Gaspur, lead designer on Anthem and the Mass Effect trilogy:

"Yes of course! The game is designed so you can enjoy an amazing BioWare story and explore an incredible open world alone or with friends."

Source: https://twitter.com/CGaspur/status/874050839014395...

So it will have a lot of focus on Story, lore and characters. And you will also be able to play it solo. Or with friends.

PS. There's already a Anthem Reddit, in case you guys want more details.

It'll probably be downgraded on your Playstation sure :D

This might be game of show at this point.
I miss playing Bioware games, hopefully this lives up to the hype now

So the game has managed to load in an entire open world full of creatures into memory at full LOD? Impressive. Lol

Miguel recorded the feed from the conference directly at the conference in LA. We were given a spot so we could plug in our capture equipment.. It wasn't recorded on Mixer or Twitch if that's what you meant.

I am impressed, it looks much more impressive than the last ME visually. However, I am a bit sceptical of this vertical slice being representative.

Believe it or not Windows Media Player does really well.

I'm hoping this is what it will look like. It's pretty mindblowing. But something tells me that this is not what we will be playing on X1X. Also, a release date of '2018' means they have no idea when it will be finished.
If it looks to good to be true, it probably is.
Commented on 2017-06-12 10:42:57 In reply to droezelke
Well, I think they said it was running on Xbox One X, but of course, you never know.

rumours also suggested that project dylan (this game) had actually slipped to 2019. so i don't even expect it next year tbh. and if it IS coming in 2019 i fully expect these visuals to be achievable...on the PS5 and xbox two. lol

The best solution I found is MPC HC + MadVR. Otherwise as much as I dislike it as a player, VLC with hardware acceleration (DXVA2) enabled is supposed to work well too.

Yes, you are correct. Anthem's demo was running on a Xbox One X. Patrick Söderlund, Executive Vice President, of EA Worldwide Studios said, and I quote:

"On behalf of the team at BioWare, let's see what this game looks like. Running on a Xbox One X."

And the demo had the following message:

"Everything you are about to see was captured in-game running in real-time."

As for if it's true or not, only Microsoft, EA and BioWare know. But I believe they weren't lying, because Microsoft has caught some flak in the past for having PCs running demos at E3 which said they were running on Xbox One.

Not to mention that video with PC footage of a game, which I can't remember which now, which said that everything was captured running on a Xbox One. And when everyone found out, they changed the video and apologized.

Still, no way to know if it's true or not. Though they know, they know that when the game gets released, people will compare footage of the final version with this E3 demo. Just like they did with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Tom Clancy's The Division, Watch Dogs, etc. Perhaps they don't care as long as it generates enough hype and win "Best of E3" awards.

At least it will look this good on PC, of that I'm vertain. Dragon Age: Inquisition looked gorgeous sometimes, even at 1080p, and it was released in 2014. In 2018, with all the improvements the Frostbite engine has received and at 4K, it will probably look even better than this.

No idea why you hate VLC, I love it for 10-bit videos and podcasts/livestreams stuff, while grinding in some games. It has a very low consumption.

As for these 4K videos, I'm running them at 60fps - double their framerate, which uses much more resources - using Mirillis Splash without a single hitch. Even "Nex Machina's PSX 2016 Trailer" at 4K60fps with that insane 264 MB bitrate ran fine.

For those experiencing problems running 4K videos, Mirillis Splash might help since it uses mostly the GPU instead of mainly the CPU to run videos. Any GPU from the GeForce 600 series and up should handle it fine. Mirillis Splash also has a 30-day free trial for those interested.

Mirillis Splash 2.0:

This is a massive step up in graphics from anything I have seen other than uninteractive unreal engine 4 landscapes which are rendered with monster PC's with limited or no interaction no or limited animation or gameplay how this is done on the Xbox One X is some sort of optimization witchcraft.

I find the interface unnecessarily cumbersome. MPC-HC is much more streamlined.
