The newest Hitman game already looks good, but PC gamers running a DirectX 11 video card will be in for quite a ride. Hitman: Absolution’s Glacier 2 engine supports bokeh filtering, tessellation, global illumination, and increased texture resolution, which all work together to make the PC game the best looking version. AMD users will even be able to benefit from Eyefinity and HD3D, provided the system is capable of those demanding tasks.
IO Interactive’s Jonas Meyers states the studio wants Hitman: Absoluton to “look as awesome as possible” and that it “looks ten times more awesome on the PC.” It is always good to see a developer push the boundaries of PC gaming, especially with how powerful a computer can be.
