Warner Bros. just released a new trailer to tell you how beautiful Gotham Knights will be on your PC as if to reassure everyone that this time it’s the correct PC version. Already in 2015 the PC porting of the publisher from Batman: Arkham Knight was so notoriously bad that it pulled the game from Steam until it could implement fixes. This time, Warner makes its promises about the PC port up front. If the trailer lives up to its promises, you can expect to see every pore on Robin’s face.
The new trailer features high framerate support, 4K resolution, ray-tracing reflections, ultra-wide and multi-monitor support, and all the graphics customization options that PC gamers have come to expect from a good port. Perhaps the most unusual clue is for Intel’s brand new XeSS upscaling, which uses machine learning to render at a lower resolution and then upscale the image with good quality (to try), allowing you to hit higher framerates at higher resolutions. In other words, it is Intel’s answer to Nvidia’s DLSS and AMD’s FSRand it will be interesting to see how it works.
