+1!!

Sorry I can't capture in 4k, maybe with ShadowPlay but the quality won't be good enough I think, too low bitrate for this resolution.

Thx for the 1440p footage (my native res), looks great..

I will play the open beta myself this weekend.. Probably gonna prefer 1st person, but who knows I might like 3rd person (looking at it not so much)..

Thank you so much for these videos.
1440p, high bitrate, 60fps, surround sound... why can't this be the norm on the internet?
Commented on 2015-10-08 01:14:27
Ultra?

Also, new drivers and SLI profile are available on http://www.geforce.com/ now.

Yes, Ultra settings, and Nvidia Experience updated the SLI profile, so in the coming videos there won't be any flickering :)

Played the beta (read: demo) for a few hours and really like it sofar.. Game looks, sounds and plays amazingly well..

This is the stuff I bought that 27", 2560x1440, IPS, 144Hz, G-sync monitor in combination with a 980Ti for.. Now lets hope the full game has enough content and will not be turned into a recordbreaking DLC moneycow by EA..

Looks clearly best on PC (if you have the hardware)...

I'm surprised that this game it quite fun to play :)
Well i will probably buy it on XB1.
Just bought a new 4K Monitor 2 days ago but to buy now a new GTX 970 or higher is kind of excessive. isn't it?

Not if you want to play games like this in their most glorious form..

A single GTX970 is not gonna be great for 4K though, you will need at least a 980Ti or even 2 of those to play at max settings with desent performance.. Do not forget 4K (3840x2160) is 4 times more pixels then full-HD (1920x1080), so it also requires roughly 4 times as much GPU power to drive.. Even for PC gaming 4K is still stretching it as single videocards are simply not fast enough yet to drive all those pixels fast enough.. Maybe in 1-2 generations time they will be.. Right now a 1440p (2560x1440) monitor is a better more afordable step up from 1080p.. 1440p is "just" 77% more pixels then 1080p.. And from personal experience I can tell you that resolution works perfectly with a single 980Ti.. A single 970 will start to struggle even on that resolution already if you want max settings in every new game, forget about 4K..

A 970 is the sweetspot for 1080p PC max settings gaming right now.. The 980Ti for 1440p.. Which makes perfect sense because 1440p is 77% more pixels then 1080p and a 980Ti is about the same amount faster then a 970..

that is excessive for 60fps at 1080p but that card will struggle at 4k.

yes!! I was finally able to buy a 980ti recently for my 1440p monitor and it runs this game like a dream!

@Inflatable

i kinda agree but! GTX970 isn't a sweet spot if you think about the 4GB debacle.
GTX960 is the only card atm that has dedicated HEVC video decoding (Nvidia VP7). GTX980 Ti is a great card and it would have been my choice of course. But as i mentioned before no VP7 "only" VP6.

1440p is such a sweet spot right now. Plus 144hz and gsync ftw.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's a meaty campaign too. And you'll probably like the MP anyway. It's a fun throw-away experience. (10 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @Tinks: The single player campaign is the best raw action FPS gameplay since Painkiller though, it's totally worth it. (26 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks if the MP ain't good I ain't buyin it (47 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @KORNdog: the headset itself is selling for almost $600. It's unusually expensive considering there's proper distribution of sony products here in retail. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: it seems cheaper to break things down and buy older stick. Like the sqare design camera can be had for less than the new one. And old move controllers less than the ore packaged VR ones. (5 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth lol, PSVR (with camera) will sell for $650 here in Norway. talk about overpricing stuff. the console itself isn't expensive ($350) (5 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind ... in Doom 3 I was begging for the game to end after 300 something levels, Doom kept me interested the entire time. They tried to keep to their simple FPS gameplay, and they succeeded. (6 Hours ago)
