Are the Far Cry: New Dawn HD textures worth it? 4k Graphics Comparison Video
Far Cry: New Dawn offers HD textures to further enhance the game, but are they worth it?? We have taken a look at the recently launched open world game with a brand new 4k Graphics Comparison to find out!
Without a doubt, Ubisoft's open world of Hope County Montana in Far Cry: New Dawn looks brilliant even without HD textures, especially at 4k and the Ultra preset. Our sister channel PixelPerfect went for the highest possible settings to compare the HD textures on and off to see the differences (if any). You'll have to look close to see a difference, and if you're on foot or in a car you may not notice much of an improvement at all.
With the graphics comparison we wanted to answer the question as to whether or not the installation of the pack is really worth it, especially since the pack requires a 20gig download. We also did a performance test to see if the textures being on made a difference to the game with the more detailed surfaces. The results were surprising, at least with the GTX 1080 Ti and settings we used. With the textures set to ON we actually gained performance and the FPS was slightly higher. Are the HD textures being used in the benchmark? We couldn't tell, but we tested them in the game and had a look the counter as well. You can take a look at our benchmark at the 3:37 mark (as well as the settings we used to test with).
