Nvidia’s presence at Gamescom 2017 has been extremely aggressive, and outside of a few AMD stalwarts like Bethesda, they seem to be dominating the marketing for every AAA game. Case in point Need For Speed Payback, another one of those cushy industry partnerships that promises the best possible performance on GeForce hardware.
Nvidia published some 4K 60 frames per second footage taken from Need For Speed Payback. It looks predictably fantastic with some gorgeous environmental detailing that is textbook Frostbite. EA’s proprietary game engine is pretty insane at geometric detailing, as evidenced by Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefield 1, and the same techniques are used on NFS Payback’s craggy rocks to spectacular effect.
Unsurprisingly this is running on a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, no doubt flanked by army of RAM sticks and an extreme CPU, while us mere paupers will have to make do with good old 1080p. Need For Speed Payback should be a real looker though whatever resolution you’re playing at.
Need For Speed Payback is out on November 10th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
