Hitman

On release players have access to the Intro Pack content – Prologue Mission, the Paris Sanguine Fashion Show, full access to Contracts Mode, Escalation Mode, elusive targets and other live content. Remaining content will be available as six releases periodically throughout 2016, starting April 2016.

As Agent 47, you perform contract hits on high-profile targets in exotic locations around the world. Future locations – in April, Sapienza Italy, track down a scientist residing in the sunny coastal town. In May, the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh, Morocco. And as the story expands you will travel to Thailand and the USA before concluding in Japan later in 2016.

We cranked the resolution up to 4K and the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0 was still spitting 49.5 FPS like a hot sub-machine gun in the hands of a trigger-happy gangster.

Rise Of The Tomb Raider

Tomb

Rise of the Tomb Raider is an action-adventure video game developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix. It is the sequel to the 2013 video game Tomb Raider, a reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise. It was released for Xbox One and Xbox 360 in November 2015 and for Microsoft Windows in January 2016. It is set to release for PlayStation 4 in the second half of 2016.

Rise of the Tomb Raider was officially announced in June 2014. The game’s storyline follows Lara Croft as she ventures into Siberia in search of the legendary city of Kitezh, whilst battling a paramilitary organization that intends on beating her to the city’s promise of immortality. Presented from a third-person perspective, the game primarily focuses on survival and combat, while the player may also explore its landscape and various optional tombs. Camilla Luddington returns to voice and perform her role as Lara.

Upon release, Rise of the Tomb Raider received positive reviews, with critics praising its graphics, gameplay and characterization. It was the best-selling Xbox One game during Christmas week, and had sold over one million copies by the end of 2015. Additional content was also released, including a new story campaign, a new gameplay mode, as well as new outfits and weapons for Lara.

Testing Rise Of The Tomb Raider at 1440p with the EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0 was just a sheer pleasure and produced 77.4 FPS in this well optimized game.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 FTW GAMING ACX 3.0 hit the Tomb hard at 1440p as Lora Croft flew across the screen smoothly at 43.2 FPS. At times action adventure shooters can stutter just slightly, often breaking the continuity of game immersion, but not with the EVGA 1070.

The Witcher 3

  1. 2160P(4K) is not a gaming resolution due to current displays being limited to only 60hz atm. The GTX 1070 and even 1080 really excel at 1440P and are stunningly mediocre at 2160P. I feel reviewers should be leading reader to the performance vs visuals sweet spot that is 1440P. I find the “Final thoughts” 4k statement a tad misleading for the less informed reader that could contribute some readers making the mistake of going 4K. There is no doubt 4K is coming probably the next GPU architecture in combination of display port 1.3 and above, but we are not there yet its simply not a great option!.

    Beyond that a good review.

    • Right, because gaming definitely didn’t exist before the invention of high refresh rate LCDs a few years ago.

      • You tried, man. CRT monitors were equal to or better than the response times and refresh rates of the displays we have now. They just consumed a lot more space and power. 🙂
