GSY Review PS4 Xbox One PC

Rise of the Tomb Raider was finally released on PC a few days ago and we just had the time to capture some 1080p/60fps footage for you guys. The game is maxed out, except for textures as they require a 6 Go GPU with the very high setting. We also couldn't go above SMAA without hitting the framerate, but if Miguel gets his copy next week and can do better, we'll post more videos eventually.

Verdict

How will this run on a 4790K and a single GTX 980(NOT TI)?

I was wondering when you were going to make some videos for this. I guess you have been pretty busy with other stuff.

Good question, and one I'm interested in. Would be nice if Drift or Miguel could try different settings on the Nvidia Control Panel - no need to post videos - just to give some feedback.

Unfortunately, the Digital Foundry article (link below) on the PC version of RotTR only mentions anti-aliasing twice, once to say it's there as an option and another to say that there's 2 levels of super-sampling anti-aliasing, and that's it.

Digital Foundry - Face-Off: Rise of the Tomb Raider on PC:
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2...

Either way, the game looks fantastic even on Xbox 360, Nixxes did an excellent work on the ports. Also of note is the fact that Crystal Dynamics did a superb job on the Xbox One version, it's not perfect, but I believe they truly pushed the Xbox One hardware to the limit.

Which shows how much potential Xbox One games in the future have of looking as great or even better. No matter which version someone chooses to play, RotTR is a brilliant game worth playing.

We only got the code Friday evening and, well, it's the week-end. :)

Check the videos for aliasing, it's not that bad, but when there is sun and trees, I don't really like what I'm seeing.

Too bad I still prefer the original TR games to the reboot.

I don't agree with him.. but it's definitely not Killzone. He said any platform.

The game is hands down of the prettiest I've seen lately, last one being Mad Max. They use some noise filter and motion blur that are actually quite good and give that prerendered CGI feeling. Actually I was surprised when the cutscene after prologue level started and it looked prerendered but FPS counter said 60 and there definitely were no compression artifacts. I think this game would benefit greatly from displays with resolution above 1080p - on maximum settings there are lots of small details on Lara's model and enviroment that you can only see up close if you fiddle with the camera.

"except for textures as they require a 6 Go GPU with the very high setting"

So Very High textures require 6GB VRAM? That's a bit much.

Care to name your title? I guess Witcher 3 on PC at 144hz 1440p and all is a site to behold too.

Looks kinda ruff around the edges, I hope thats just due to compression in the vid or is the aliasing that bad?

If anything, compression would make the aliasing less visible I think. It looks like that when playing with SMAA on, hence what I say in the news article. Have you downloaded the videos by the way?

Since DET is not "competition" to GSY, it is probably ok to mention you find many amazong screenshots there:

They are not running realtime at these settings, but it is all straight from the game engine and not altered in any way.

I haven't been able to find an AA option that I'm really happy with in terms of quality/performance balance. I've heard that the SMAA option is not working as it should, but I'm not sure if that's true or just based on statements regarding its limitations. If anyone's interested, I did a comparison of the available solutions here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/391220/discussions/0...

How much part of the games is actual tomb raiding? Can you avoid most gun fights and go stealthy instead like in the videos posted?

Mirror's edge, Ryse, Crysis 3 and even the original Crysis looks much better.
