Titanfall 2

Good Gaming – Titanfall 2 Free Weekend Incoming!

GGPC Titanfall 2 Free Weekend

This weekend Titanfall 2 will be up as a free trial so everyone can check out the game’s full multiplayer modes šŸ˜›

This begins first for those with Origin AccessĀ and thenĀ becomes available for all starting December 3rd (early Saturday morning for us in New Zealand).

This free eventĀ provides the full multiplayer offering including all maps, modes, weapons and more including the brand new Angel Cityā€™s Most Wanted DLC which is also set to drop on December 4th \o/ All your in-game progress will carry over to the full game if you choose to purchase after the free weekend so you can keep going with all the perks and loadouts you’ve earnedĀ šŸ™‚

We’ve already played this one quite a bit here on a range of Gaming PCĀ and if you’re thinking of upgrading to the full game you’ll be happy to know it’s also got a solid story campaign and with their recent “no season pass” statement this one’s going to be a favourite online shooter for a long time indeed!

GAME ON!

Good Graphics – Titanfall 2 tests begin!

Titanfall 2 is out now and this one is pretty darn excellent on a lot of levels, the effort that has been put into this game and all the other little thingsĀ around it is really rather good šŸ™‚

Firstly, when you grabĀ the game on Origin you won’t need a buy an additional season pass to ensure the multiplayer game stays current – and that means no splitting up the community of players! We here at GGPC really appreciate this and agree 100% this is the way to keep a good onlineĀ gameĀ going and servers full of players, on that note we’re totally fine with additional single player content being available later on at an additional cost (the game includes a single player campaign already as well).Ā They also released a smartphone card game named Titanfall Frontline which you can download now for free via Google Play, it’s certainly not as deep or polished as gamesĀ like Hearthstone or Elder Scrolls Legends but still was nice to have a little jam with the tutorial mission and a couple of regular PVP matches while downloading the main Titanfall 2 game on our PC.

Onto the main game! We begin our performance tests with theĀ GGPC Assassin Gaming PC config with its GTX 1060 3GB Graphics Card, an Intel i5-6400 quad core and 2x4GB 2133MHz DDR4 RAM and as you’ll see from the gameplay below they’ve done a great job with this game and we’re able to stay above 60FPS stable with some very high settings indeed!

Switching sides toĀ the red team with a quick test playing on our GGPC Shaman Gaming PCĀ which packs an AMD RX 470 Graphics Card,Ā i5-6400 quad core and 2x4GB 2133MHz DDR4 RAM we again enjoy some very high settings with FPS above 60 even during some pretty action packed moments!

We’ll continue testing out different graphics cards with thisĀ game so keep you’re eyes on the GGPC YouTube Channel for the latest šŸ™‚

GAME ON!

Good Graphics Card – GTX 1060 Gaming FPS Tests on Laptop & Desktop

UPDATE: GTX 1060 Laptop Playlist

UPDATE: GTX 1060 Desktop Playlist

GAME ON! What better way to test out the new range of GTX 1060 Graphics Cards than by quickly playing a whole range of games with the new GTX 1060 Laptop and Gaming PCĀ \o/

We’ve had some epic battles in Titanfall 2 with the 3GB Gigabyte GTX 1060Ā sticking pretty darn close to 60FPS even when jumping on the back of an enemy titan to pop a grenade šŸ™‚ This game plays best on the 6GB version letting you push those textures all the up.

With Battlefield 1 you can go ultra all the way for most maps, in the big city map when all the smokey rubble, flame throwers and gas grenades start going it can get a little dicey but you can still keep above 60 by tweaking post processing and mesh to high šŸ™‚

Moving away from first person shooters now we jump into a bit of Black Desert Online and with this one the 6GB Asus Strix GTX 1060 really shines, BDO isĀ framelocked to 60 but achieving this isn’t easy – nicely done nVidia!

The GTX 1060 isn’t invincible though, we threw the Witcher 3 at it with some very high settings and while it’s still playable, it pushes the 1060 to its limits.

Tweaking the settings a little makes for smooth gaming though, as you can see with the GTX 1060 Laptop below šŸ™‚

Lots more games to play and more tests coming, keep your eyes on the GGPC YouTube Channel for the latest!
