Howdy Freelancers! CES officially begins today, on the 8th of January, but that hasn’t stopped Nvidia from showing us all a glorious new trailer for Anthem. This trailer is a showcase that was part of their keynote presentation before the even officially begins. It features 4K Anthem gameplay, as well as a mad new machine enemy that looks badass. Check the trailer out below.

It’s brief but we see a new spider-machine enemy that could be a boss from the Scar faction. There’s also a shielded gorilla-like creature in there, as well as the stunning new gold Infiltrator Javelin.

The trailer features gorgeous waterfalls, absolutely stunning scenery, and of course some of the best flying there has ever been in video games. Bioware announced, once the trailer was over, that this level of quality was possible with ease. Anyone with a 2000-series Nvidia graphics card will be able to get this level of visuals on their machine.

Bioware also announced as part of Nvidia’s presentation that Anthem would support Nvidia’s DLS technology.

Now for the interesting bit. Anthem, alongside this exciting trailer, revealed the technical specifications for the PC version of Anthem. This is something you’ve all been waiting for I know, so let’s take a look at the minimum and maximum requirements below.

Anthem will support an Xbox One Controller at launch as well as mouse and keyboard. Anyone playing will need a constant internet connection in order to play, but we already knew that since this is an online game right?

If you’re unable to decide which version of the game to get, still, then you have one other choice. Wait until the 1st of February, when the Anthem alpha demo goes live, and test your PC with it. Let it try to run the game at max settings and see what comes out on your screen. There’s absolutely no pressure to pre-order, but I will say this.

Anthem is going to be a game you come back to again and again, spending hundreds and hundreds of hours in. Get the version that you want to sit down and play for that length of time. If you can’t play your PC for more than a couple of hours at a time, then consider a console version.
