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 started to test the PowerColor Red Devil RX 470 4GB at 1080p but went ahead and ran 1440p first and there was no need to drop back to 1080p as the card ran Hitman 1440p with 52.1 FPS. If it runs Hitman 1440p at 52 FPS you will have no problem at 1080P.
Hitman at 4k put a little damper on the Devils promenade but not by much and we got 28.6 FPS which boarders the 30 FPS we consider playable FPS. Dial down the graphics a little or pay for a little more expensive hardware, we’d say on a budget dial down the graphics a little, phat wallet we’d say grab a RX 480 or GTX 1060 6GB.
Rise Of The Tomb Raider
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.
Once again the PowerColor Red Devil RX 470 4GB performed well enough at 1440p that a 1080p test was redundant and we got a satisfying 46.1 FPS from the PowerColor Red Devil RX 470 4GB.
Rise Of The Tomb Raider proved to be to much for the PowerColor Red Devil RX 470 4GB and we got a 21.3 FPS but all we were looking for in this test was a comparison to other GPU’s performance in relation to the RX 470. We don’t consider the PowerColor Red Devil RX 470 4GB a 4K video card but it’s looking decent at 1440p and AMD has more powerful offering waiting to hit the shelf.
The Witcher 3
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an open world action role-playing video game developed by CD Projekt RED. Announced in February 2013, it was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on 19 May 2015. The game is the third in the series, preceded by The Witcher and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, which are based on the series of fantasy novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.
Played in a third-person perspective, players control protagonist Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter known as a witcher, who sets out on a long journey through the Northern Kingdoms. In the game, players battle against the world’s many dangers using swords and magic, while interacting with non-player characters and completing side quests and main missions to progress through the story. The game was met with critical acclaim and was a financial success, selling over 6 million copies in six weeks. The game won multiple Game of the Year awards from various gaming publications, critics, and game award shows, including the Golden Joystick Awards, The Game Awards, Game Developers Choice Awards, and SXSW Gaming Awards. Two expansion packs were released for the game: Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine.
The Witcher 3 put a spell on the PowerColor Red Devil RX 470 4GB and it kicked out 50.6 FPS allowing for gameplay at the highest graphical settings.
At 1440p The Witcher 3 was testing the PowerColor Red Devil RX 470 4GB’s abilities and it gave 38.7 FPS without breaking a sweat.
Here at 4K The Witcher 3 put the hurt on the PowerColor Red Devil RX 470 4GB and it ran 24.6 FPS so we are leaning toward recommending the PowerColor Red Devil RX 470 4GB for 1080p whole heartedly and at 1440p with the caution that uber settings might not be possible at 1440p.
