Nvidia Shows off New Mass Effect Andromeda Trailer Highlighting 4K Performance (VIDEO)
It is likely that those with the 10-hour free trial of Mass Effect: Andromeda have quite possibly already played the amount of time they were allotted. No shame in that, considering the game has been long awaited and highly anticipated. For PC players, it is even more exciting to think of enjoying the game in 4K. That is, of course, if you have the equipment capable of producing such glorious resolutions without impacting game performance. In a recent Andromeda trailer, BioWare has teamed up with Nvidia to show exactly what the game is able to do.
In the video, which was posted to Nvidia’s YouTube channel, we get to hear and see some of the team behind Mass Effect: Andromeda. Aaryn Flynn, Mike Gamble, Fabrice Condominas, Alec Antrim, and Harold Chaput are all present in the Andromeda trailer. They go into detail about the game and even show off a little behind-the-scenes action. However, what may be more important is that they show off some actual gameplay in 4K, which was captured in engine. Nvidia’s Ansel also makes an appearance in the video. You may remember this technology from when they released the 4K screenshots last week. It allows players to compose their image by moving the camera around before snapping the shot, which can provide more interesting images than just what’s on the screen during play. Let’s check out that video:
The encompassing theme of the Andromeda trailer is the ability for 4K. It is best viewed on a monitor that is capable of such resolutions, but it is not required. If anything, the ability to play the new Mass Effect in 4K allows us to experience something vast and beautiful. Well, that… and we’ll get to see the quirky animations in incredible detail. Mass Effect: Andromeda launches on March 21 in North America and on March 23 in Europe. It will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
What say you, explorers? Are any of you planning on playing in 4K?
