And it’s finally here. The update with Nvidia’s PhysX and Fur tech support is now live for Call of Duty: Ghosts and everyone can enjoy Riley’s new fur. Although there aren’t any release notes for this latest update – therefore we don’t know whether Infinity Ward has further optimized its engine or not – we do know that Nvidia’s exclusive PhysX features have been added to it.
Nvidia’s Fur Tech adds high-quality, realistic, dynamically-reacting fur to Riley, NPC wolves, and multiplayer attack dogs. Do note that AMD users are able to enable this Fur tech, so kudos to the green team. Nvidia’s GPU-accelerated PhysX effects, on the other hand, are exclusive to its cards and add realistic, dynamically-reacting particle effects throughout the game via APEX.
Here are some screenshots from Riley with its new fur, courtesy of Guru3D’s members ‘JonasBeckman’ and ‘Spets’.
