Rise of the Tomb Raider PC Improvements Showcased

Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to PC very soon, and PC gamers were wondering what improvements the game will have over its Xbox One counterpart. Well, the guys over at Crystal Dynamics created a little video detailing what to expect.
This tech-centric feature details improvements available on the PC, such as anisotropic filtering, tessellation, dynamic foliage, and through a partnership with Nvidia, a high-end ambient occlusion technique called HBAO+. Crystal Dynamics and Nixxes worked tirelessly to push the PC version to new heights, giving players unprecedented visual fidelity and the most realistic-looking Tomb Raider adventure to date.
In short, the game will look a lot better than the Xbox One version. I’m sure if you have the PC power to put this one on max settings, this could easily become one of the best looking games of early 2016.
Preorder the Digital Deluxe edition of Rise of the Tomb Raider to get launch-day access to Endurance Mode and Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch. Future content includes a steady stream of outfits, weapons, expedition cards, and the third major DLC drop, Cold Darkness Awakened. Choose your pre-order option at BuyROTTR.com
