Titanfall PC to receive new visual features in collaboration with Nvidia GameWorks

Thursday, 20th March 2014 09:35 GMT By Dave Cook

Titanfall’s PC edition will receive full support from Nvidia, the company has confirmed. The partnership with Respawn will see the PC shooter bolstered with new GameWorks to keep its visuals on the cutting-edge.

It follows confirmation that EA has secured the rights to Titanfall 2, and that the deal is not exclusive to Microsoft formats.

Nvidia announced its partnership with Respawn over on its site, stating, “Mixing mayhem and monstrous machines in never-before-seen ways, Titanfall has already reinvigorated the first-person shooter genre. Now, we’ll be working with Titanfall’s game developer, Respawn Entertainment, to keep their multiplayer, first-person shooter at the cutting edge of image quality.”

One key GameWorks feature brought to the shooter will be Temporal anti-aliasing, which is geared towards reducing motion flicker in games and movies. “TXAA creates a smooth, clear image by combining high-quality multi-sample anti-aliasing, post processes, and NVIDIA-designed filters,” the company went on. “It’s the highest quality anti-aliasing technique out there, and delivers the stunning visuals that a groundbreaking game like Titanfall deserves.”

It’ll also receive Horizon Based Ambient Occlusion+, which will bring more life-like shadows to Titanfall’s sprawling maps. Nvidia explained, “HBAO+ uses advanced algorithms to create shadows that react accurately on and around objects in Titanfall in a lifelike, non-uniform fashion. It improves on existing ambient occlusion techniques by adding richer, more detailed, more realistic shadows around objects.”

The company will also add 4K display support, SLI multi-GPU technology and other features in due course.

What do you make of the above?

    Will I be able to install these as mods on my JTAG xbox?

    Will PC players have to pay AGAIN for access to these features?

    Will they release again as a ‘Titanfall: Definitive Edition’?

    Will it triple the size of the game, because Respawn is too incompetent to compress their files?

    Still can’t believe how bad the game looks (visually / technically) on both PC and XB1. If that is the power of next-gen COMBINED with the power of cloud, we are in for a very rough gen.

    personally i believe Titanfall was pushed out early with pressure from MS, who really needed the xbox one boost.

    I’d bet money that Respawn wanted a much later launch.

    @The_Red Have you played it? Whilst I agree that it is by no means a visual masterpiece, the gameplay is incredibly slick! And also very bug free which is rare for new releases these days.
    Battlefield 4 maybe one of the most visually stunning games out at the moment but it’s also buggy as hell!

    @Matt27 Well quite frankly BF4 runs much better Frame rate wise than titanfall. I get so many frame drops in titanfall.

    @Matt27 I only tried the beta but even then, the visuals were badly dated.
    It was rather smooth but aside from a few vistas in one map (don’t remember its name), the game looked really dated IMHO.

    I wasn’t commenting on gameplay or performance but why couldn’t a game be bug free AND look nice? Original Modern Warfare looked great for its time AND was mostly polished in terms of bugs. By comparison, Titanfall looks like an uprezzed last gen port on both PC and XB1.
