Batman: Arkham Knight is going to look pretty special with Nvidia’s GameWorks

Did you hear? The next Batman game is a rather hefty crime-punching simulation, clocking in at over 45gb in size. WHOA! In other news that wasn’t already posted in April however, the game is going to look mighty fine when running on a properly prepared PC, provided that you have some Nvidia tech under the hood. Here, have a look while I weep at the fact that my laptop is barely capable of running an MS-DOS version of The Incredible Machine.

Here’s a video showing off just how pretty Batman: Arkham Knight looks on that Nvidia hardware. It’s pretty much what you’d expect: Interactive fog and smoke, interactive paper debris, PhysX destruction, enhanced rain  and probably several other buzzwords that go way, way over my limited knowledge of hardware and software implementation.

Of course, such fancy psychological issues come at a price. If you’re planning to run Batman: Arkham Knight to the bleeding edge, your PC will need to be at least this tall to enter the recommended requirements ride:

  • OS: Win 7 SP1, Win 8.1 (64-bit Operating System Required)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-3770, 3.4 GHz | AMD FX-8350, 4.0 GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760
  • Graphics Memory: 3 GB
  • DirectX®: 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet Connection Required
  • Hard Drive Space: 55 GB

While you’ll need to hit your Wayne Industries pension to upgrade to this for the visuals above:

  • OS: Win 7 SP1, Win 8.1 (64-bit Operating System Required)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-3770, 3.4 GHz | AMD FX-8350, 4.0 GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980
  • Graphics Memory: 4 GB
  • DirectX®: 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet Connection Required
  • Hard Drive Space: 55 GB

Hot damn. Batman: Arkham Knight is also out on console soon, where the only requirement is being able to put a disc inside the machine. Which I totally would do, but it’s all the way over there. Too much effort dammit.
