Here's a list of PC features that will be available during the Beta:
·4K resolution support
·Mouse and Keyboard support
·Custom key mapping
·Adjustable field of view
·21:9 monitor support
·Anti-Aliasing (MSAA is still being developed so there might
be some visual artifacts and performance degradation)
·Depth of Field
·Lighting Shading Detail
·Local Light Shadows
And these features should be available by launch:
I'm actually impressed with the future implementation of SLI/Crossfire. Not many games support this feature because developers don't justify the additional development cost, but it definitely adds longevity by allowing gamers to buy additional GPUs as hardware prices drop and improve the overall experience.
Bungie has also implemented tweaks and fixes that were found in the console Betas:
·FIXED: Infinite Super Glitch
·FIXED: Warlock Glide Glitch
·FIXED: Infinite Grenades Glitch
·FIXED: Warlocks now have the same Melee Range as
all other classes
·TWEAKED: Globally reduced the time it takes to
charge your Super
·TWEAKED: Increased Grenade Damage in PvE
·TWEAKED: Increased Power Ammo drops in PvE
Lastly, make sure to update your Nvidia/AMD drivers to the latest versions. I'm not sure about AMD but Nvidia just released updated drivers (385.41).
They're supposed to show off the features in the upcoming 3.0 build, which is supposed to be massive. Hopefully some Squadron 42 updates, as well. Hard to believe it's been almost 5 years since the Kickstarter campaign ended.
Damn shame how they f'd this franchise up. Don't expect a new ME for the foreseeable. The development team who created ME:A has been shutdown by Bioware and the team members moved to other offices.
Hopefully Anthem will be a decent game. It's basically, a Bioware-developed Destiny. Fortunately, Casey Hudson (creative/project director for Neverwinter Nights, SW:KOTOR, Jade Empire,ME1 and ME2) so hopefully it will be a fleshed out RPG with a good narrative.
There was some news about changes to the game types and the story (which actually sounds interesting if they follow through with content) but based on the gameplay trailer it honestly doesn't look much different.
