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.

    GriftGFX I want to upgrade but my 980 still runs everything I'm playing this year fairly well. I can't justify the 2080 given the small step up in DX11 performance vs the 1080ti and don't want an old card. (2 Hours ago)
