So you just pumped 30 hours of Far Cry New Dawn and want a little bit more… Christmas Pud.
Far Cry New Dawn released over the weekend, reignited my love for the Fry Cry franchise. Always blown away by how good these games looked. (Fry Cry 1 raised the bar hugely back in 2004) I missed some content I wish I did’t.
Hidden away on the Steam store page I discovered the HD Texture Pack. Steam explains “The Ultra-HD texture pack will upgrade some of the most common textures in the game, to a new level of visual fidelity, such as characters and weapons. This higher level of detail can be best appreciated while playing the game in 4K resolution, but is not limited to that.”
The Far Cry New Dawn team said “a lot of effort to try to deliver a solid and scalable experience to the PC community, so those of you running a 4 GB GPU will still be able to enjoy this texture pack from 1080p to 1440p resolutions.”
Players with 6+ GB GPU’s you can enjoy the game “In sharp 4K resolution, along with this, HD textures under standard lighting and shading options.”
Lastly for the big boys with “dual GPUs and more than 6 GB of video ram, you will be able to run the game in 4K. Featuring the HD textures, and with the highest settings of lighting and shading, which take advantage of tech like displacement mapping.”
Now that I have the 12+ GB texture pack downloaded, time to check out some side missions in HD glory.
Check out the official launch trailer if your yet to purchase the game.
