This video clip features side by side comparison of Batman: Arkham City running both with and without NVIDIA GeForce GTX PhysX. Presumably, the version of the game running without the extra horsepower looks similar to the console version of Arkham City that’s already been released.
That extra strength will get PC gamers extra particle effects, more environmental entities and dynamic behavior for objects like money, paper and flappy-door-thingies (only the most technical of terms used here).
The PC version of Batman: Arkham City was officially dated for November 15th earlier this week. That launch day makes this iteration arrive nearly a full month later than its console counterpart. However, since news of the delay between platforms came about, Rocksteady has been ensuring PC gamers that the wait will be well worth their time:
“If you do have a super powerful high-end PC, you are going to see higher detail textures…You are going to see a more richly realised world…
…People will really love the PC version when it comes out. The wait will definitely be worth it.”
Well, now that you’ve seen some of the extra beef PC gamers will be privy to when Arkham City releases for them, do you think the extra month is worth the wait? Or, would you rather have already had your chance to don the tights and take to the grimy streets of Gotham?
