Mark Darrah, a popular face from BioWare Montreal has confirmed that the E3 2018 demo of BioWare’s upcoming game Anthem was running on a PC at 4K, using two of NVIDIA’s flagship GPUs. The setup apparently leveraged an SLI setup, consisting of two GeForce GTX 1080 Tis and most probably an Intel i9 CPU as well.
Darrah was replying to a fan on Twitter. Anthem is BioWare’s largest project till date and almost the entire studio is working on it. The game is built atop EA’s popular Frostbite 3 engine, and should be well optimized at launch, similar to Mass Effect Andromeda and Dragon Age Inquisition.
To get an idea of this kind of fire-power, Witcher 3 nets 80+ FPS on a GTX 1080 Ti SLI setup and the most intensive game on PC Deus Ex Mankind Divided runs at 70+ FPS. Games like Battlefield 1 and Crysis probably yeild more than 100+ FPS on the above mentioned configuration. The BioWare producer further said that the studio will continue optimizing the game till the launch date. Anthem launches on the PC, PS4 and the Xbox One in March 2019.
