Quite interesting news have arrived from Gamescom 2013 today – Call of Duty: Ghosts, new installment in the Call of Duty series, will include additional GPU accelerated PhysX effects on PC.
According to our information, COD: Ghosts will be the first game to feature several new additions to the APEX Turbulence module, related to rendering of the effects.
In current games (such as Warframe or The Bureau: XCOM Declassified), Turbulence effects, while having on complex eulerian simulation underneath, are usually visualized as a particle clouds, with each particle visibly separated one of each other.
New Call of Duty, in comparison, should bring us natural-looking, fully physically simulated volumetric smoke and dust effects with the quality, close to those seen in pre-rendered VFX scenes.
And paired with Batman: Arkham Origins, Call of Duty: Ghosts will make this autumn quite exciting for every gamer, interested in PhysX technology.
