At CES 2019, NVIDIA has confirmed that Bioware’s Anthem will support its DLSS tech, Deep Learning Super Sampling. DLSS is perhaps the most promising tech we’ve seen from NVIDIA (as real-time ray tracing is still a lot of demanding even for RTX2080Ti) so we are glad that more developers are adopting it.
Now while I can’t talk much about Anthem’s PC performance at this point, I can tell you that the game looks great and that it will definitely benefit from DLSS.
Bioware and NVIDIA have not revealed whether Anthem will support DLSS from the get-go. And to be honest this is our biggest gripe with DLSS right now. NVIDIA had announced a bunch of games that would be supporting it, from newer releases like Darksiders 3 to older games like PUBG, but right now there is only one game supporting it (Final Fantasy XV).
NVIDIA needs to step up its game and fulfil its DLSS promises sooner than later.
Anthem will get a VIP demo that will be available on January 25th and the same demo will be open to everyone on February 1st. Contrary to other demos that are called these days “betas”, the Anthem demo will be representative of what players will experience in the game at launch day.
Anthem releases on February 22nd and the progress you make in both the VIP and the open demo will not transfer to the final game!
