GC: Shadow of the TR in 4K

GC: Shadow of the TR in 4K

We have been able to play a good part of the Gamescom demo of Shadow of the Tomb Raider on PC and we brought you back some 4K footage. We played the game on PC but since it was a demo, what you're about to see is not the final code. That explains the few hiccups of the framerate, the build sometimes having trouble remaining smooth in such a resolution. We weren't told the specs of the PC they were using and we weren't allowed to switch to 1080p.

Very good presentation. the game will also be among the first few titles to support full ray trace rendering. I just hope it can run good on my setup.

This game proved we won't realistically be getting good performance out of real time ray tracing for a gen or so yet. This had unstable 30-50 FPS at 1080p using that 1200 dollar card. Oh well. Roll on PS6. lol

P.S. this game has some of the worst animations I've seen in something so high budget. Completely ruins the otherwise impressive visuals.

probably by the time the game ships the pc code should be good. nixxes makes good ports.

Also the Water Effects and Physics to the Body of Lara looks so freaking terrible, that i cant believe what i saw in all the Gameplay Trailers.

Maybe it's the Alpha Version??

The Jank of this Developer is hilariously bad on such a High production cost game. From magnetic scripted jumps that look... JANK.

From underwater segments with no caustics or depth to the volume, like swimming in space ... JANK.

Mediocre developer. Shit game.

    MrWhite I've heard OLED crushes black levels too much, so much that mid tone details get lost. (15 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @jmd749: OLED is king for watching movies, and especially if you sit off-center (1 Day ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @jmd749: FALD can be a bit hit and miss, depending on how many zones and how aggressive it's programmed to work. Like the Q8 that's got far fewer zones (causing glow around bright objects) (1 Day ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 I'm excited for you, that is a beast of a television, with far superior HDR performance than any OLED with minimal to no burn-in issues. :P (1 Day ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 When I got my OLED 2017 FALD panels were more expensive, it's good to see they've dropped in price. I'd probably have bought the same as you, cause tbf FALD with just under 500 zones is good for a 65" (1 Day ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 @Melmoth: 15ms latency is pretty good and 2K nits will make for some very good HDR viewing, though a higher electricity bill. :P Agreed, I play old games on my PC monitor to avoid burn in on my OLED. (1 Day ago)
