GPU PhysX in Warmonger

without comments

While completing profiles for old PhysX games, we’ve added PhysX video for Warmonger – Operation: Downtown Destruction title. Developed by Net Devil in collaboration with Ageia for original PhysX PPU, Warmonger is mediocre multiplayer-oriented FPS, available for free download at GeForce PowerPack #2.

Our Warmonger PhysX info mini-site is located here

Note: You can disable GPU PhysX content for this title, so it’s nearly unplayble without nvidia GPU/Ageia PPU.
