Post PlanetSide 2 physics effects showcased in official PhysX trailer

To reinforce the official release of GPU PhysX effects in PlanetSide 2, free-2-play MMO shooter, NVIDIA has revealed the official trailer to demonstrate how extra Particles and Turbulence effects can enhance the visual look of the game.



What is interesting in case of PlanetSide, is the fact that all the extra PhysX effects are GPU exclusive ' there is no CPU backend even for regular impact particles. According to one of our sources, it was a deliberate developer's decision, directed by technical requirements to save CPU cycles for gameplay physics and game logic, not some kind of 'marketing trick'.

Be sure to check back on PhysXInfo.com later on for our own comparison video and PhysX Review.
