After months of teasers and anticipation, Marvel's Avengers finally launched earlier this month. The game promised a healthy dose of single-player action mixed with some chaotic and fun multiplayer brawling. The game gave players the chance to step into the shoes of their favourite Marvel Avengers and allowed them to don Ironman’s high-tech suit, be worthy to wield Mjolnir as Thor or simply smash everything around them as the Hulk. In order to ensure an immersive experience, the developers of the game, Crystal Dynamics partnered with Intel to make CPU optimizations to the game specifically for PC players.
The improvements seen on PC thanks to Crystal Dynamics’ partnership with Intel can broadly be classified into three categories. This includes armour destruction, environmental damage and finally water simulation. Armour destruction takes into account the damage players do to enemies creates metal, glass and other debris that one might expect in a battle. Environmental damage helped create the type of destruction you might see when superheroes and supervillains battle. Finally, water simulation helps ensure that the water in the game looks and reacts the way you would expect fluid to react.
The optimisations were made keeping in mind quad-core, octa-core and deca-core rigs that are most common among PC gamers. So those with high-end rigs as well as those with budget-rigs will be able to benefit from these enhancements in some form. Of course, Marvel’s Avengers is just the first result of the collaboration between Intel and Crystal Dynamics and it will be very interesting to see where this partnership goes and what benefits it will have for gamers. Fingers crossed for that!
