New GPU PhysX trailer for Borderlands 2 title from Gearbox was revealed today, showcasing hardware accelerated physics effects which will be added to PC version of the game.
Update: one hour gameplay video with PhysX effects
Few months ago, several cam footages of first PhysX trailer were uploaded to YouTube, but following demonstration is significantly better – longer, smoother, more detailed, in full HD glory, without tremble and background noise.
So far, hardware accelerated effects will include SPH fluid simulation and rendering (with different behaviour – water, acid, blood, etc), tearable cloth, advanced forcefields manipulation and enhanced weapon effects (impact debris, volumetric smoke, additional particles from explosions).
From technical standpoint, physics in the game will be based on PhysX SDK 2.8.4 and APEX 1.x (may be subject to change).
