Metro 2033 Will be 3D Vision Ready, Support DirectX 11 and PhysX

February 17th, 2010 · No Comments · Stereo 3D Games

Today THQ and NVIDIA officially confirmed with a press release that the upcoming first person shooter from 4A Games called Metro 2033 will support a number of advanced DirectX 11 features with the latest generation of DX11 graphics cards, as well as 3D Vision support. Metro 2033 will also feature advanced, hardware accelerated physical effects using Nvidia PhysX. Now this combination is very interesting considering the fact that Nvidia has yet to officially announce their first DirectX 11-capable GPUs (Fermi/GF100) and the game will be available in a month from now. Not to mention that the 3D Vision drivers also are still not able to support DirectX 11, meaning that it will be either DX11 or 3D Vision at first. Still the gamers with DX11 cards (ATI owners only and in 2D so far) should be able to experience advanced Depth of Field effects as well as Full Tessellation on character models.

“Our engineers have been working closely with 4A Games to ensure that Metro 2033 takes full advantage of some of the spectacular effects made possible with the next generation of DX11 hardware,” said Tony Tamasi, Senior Vice President of Content and Technology at NVIDIA. “The 4A Engine is one of the most advanced game engines we’ve ever worked with, and with DX11 enabled, Metro 2033 is undoubtedly one of the best looking PC games of 2010. Combine this with NVIDIA 3D Vision and PhysX and you will experience mind-blowing visuals.”

Metro 2033 is scheduled for release in North America and Germany on the 16th March, Australia on the 18th March, and in the UK and the rest of Europe on the 19th March with pre-orders for it already being taken.

Darkest of Days, 3D Vision and PhysX Support

September 11th, 2009 · No Comments · Stereo 3D Games


Lately there is a lot of talk about the game Darkest of Days, because the game is officially available for a few days, looks very good and is even fun to play. And thus a few questions arise, because this is one of the still rare games that come with Nvidia PhysX support and this makes the game look much more realistic for all Nvidia-based video card owners (if they VGA can handle PhysX of course). The next big question is if the game works in Stereoscopic 3D mod with Geforce 3D Vision, but here unfortunately comes a little disappointment – the game uses OpenGL and thus is not compatible with 3D Vision. So we should do with PhysX only for this title and here is a little something that will show you what you can expect if your video card is PhysX capable and if it is not…
