Watch Batman: Arkham Knight's Incredible Effects Using Nvidia GameWorks

But can you run it?


Graphics cards manufacturer Nvidia has posted a new video which highlights the kind of special effects you'll see in Batman: Arkham Knight if you have an Nvidia card that supports its GameWorks modules.

Batman: Arkham Knight has looked graphically impressive in every gameplay video we've seen, but GameWorks adds additional effect, like smoke and fog that react to movement in fight scenes, paper debris that gets kicked up, enhanced rain effects, and more.

According to Nvidia, this is the GameWorks technology you can see in the video in the video:

  • Interactive Fog and Smoke
  • Interactive Paper Debris
  • PhysX Destruction
  • Enhanced Rain

Nvidia recently touted the power of its GameWorks technology with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which similarly takes advantage of enhanced effects.

After multiple delays, Arkham Knight launches for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on June 23.
