4K and HDR is great but surprised they didn’t mention the frame rate. Anyone know what the frame rate was on the PC version? Thanks.

Really looking forward to this. I’ve held off on playing it on PC even though I love tactics games.

Awesome, can’t wait. It is included with Game Pass, right?

Raytracing?

Doesnt have it it seems but this is a good time to remind everyone that not everything needs to have it.

Nice! I’ll give the game another shot on console, it didn’t quite grab me on PC (though that’s more so because I don’t playing on my PC).

Yeah, the lighting of the game is fixed but excellent

Of course it’s not needed. But it would be a great tech demo to show the power of XSX.

Does anyone know if this is a play anywhere title?

Man that controller is hot, but I already have 5 controllers and 2 of those docks. At 170$ it’s a hard pass for me though, wish it was around 120$.

It should be? Difficult to say since the console version is not out yet. Personally I can’t see why not.

exactly. Remember, raytracing is just one of the several ways to achieve real-time global illumination and bounce lighting. There are other approaches being developed as well, both software based (Unreal 5’s Lumen or Godot’s SDFGI) and hardware based, raytracing is just one of the more popular ones that has been the mainstay in the vfx industry and the like.

Take Watch Dogs Legion for example, makes sense to have ray tracing given how many reflective surfaces shall be present in an urban environment. Contrast that with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and you simply have a lush open world without many reflective surfaces outside maybe water. So not all games need raytracing to do good reflections and global illumination, it’s also still a very nascent technology in games specifically, so it’ll take time for engines to adapt to its demands over time and find different ways to approach it and optimize it. Nvidia realized this early into their foray with DLSS and Optix, building AI and denoising algorithms to combat the problems of raytracing both on performance and results, these consoles shall take a tad longer to do the same.
