Titanfall's PC release to see improvements through Nvidia GameWorks
Nvidia has announced plans to work with Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment to bring improvements to the game on PC for users with Nvidia graphics hardware through the company's GameWorks technology. In the blog post from Nvidia, Vince Zampella of Respawn said that the venture is "working towards implementing several Nvidia GameWorks technologies that can make Titanfall look and play even better." Improvements include temporal anti-aliasing (TXAA), a film-style anti-aliasing to reduce screen crawl and flickering during motion, and using horizon-based ambient occlusion (HBAO+) to create lifelike shadows. Additional features to be addressed include support for SLI and 4K displays.
