Batman: Arkham Knight With Nvidia GameWorks


We already know that Batman: Arkham Knight will be an Nvidia GameWorks title, but now we can confirm that it will not be using Nvidia's controversial HairWorks visual effect. 

Nvidia's GameWorks library has undoubtedly helped make many games look great, but at present it has been associated with many games which perform terribly on even today's most up-to-date hardware. Hopefully Batman will not continue this trend. 


Check out the incredible effects NVIDIA GameWorks brings to Batman Arkham Knight! Smoke and fog react to the movement in the fight scenes, including when a box is thrown or part of the floor blows up into piece. Paper debris gets kicked around as Batman takes on all the baddies. Enhanced rain allows the rain to naturally bead off when coming into contact with Batman and his cape. 



Nvidia's GameWorks Technology will add the following in-game features:

• Interactive Fog and Smoke:
• Interactive Paper Debris
• PhysX Destruction
• Enhanced Rain


As you can see in the video above Nvidia's GameWorks does add some very impressive visuals to the game, but right now it is hard to tell what kind of PC is required to run this game when these effects are turned on.

While game effects like HairWorks looks great, I personally recommend that almost every PC player turns it off, simply because it kills more performance than it is worth. If Batman arrives and can be easily played at stable framerates with these effects, as I really want to see a GameWorks game which performs well at launch.
