Anthem releases worldwide on Xbox One today. Not only have EA Access players managed to get a week of early access on the console, the game also arrives with Xbox One X enhancements, including native 4K with HDR. The game's Head of Technology Scott Neumann explains exactly what this means:
The Anthem team has been able to leverage the power of the Xbox One X to deliver enhanced graphics to our players. The added GPU power of this console allows Anthem to render at native 4K and with HDR. To complement the increased image quality of 4K, we have also increased the resolution at which we render shadows in the game, and we have enhanced the rendering of in-game terrain. Finally, the added memory of the Xbox One X allows us to increase the number of meshes and textures we stream into the player’s view at any given moment.If you haven't yet had a chance to pick up the game and you're interested in seeing how it plays, you can take a look at the video below to see some gameplay recorded as close to launch as possible.
