It’s not long now until we finally get to explore the island of Yara in the upcoming Far Cry sequel. Ubisoft has promised the largest and most diverse location yet in a Far Cry title, and the game certainly looks very good. A new trailer has been released showcasing the various AMD-specific hardware features along with how much FPS players can get from enabling FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR).
Far Cry 6 launches on October 7th, and it will include support for ray tracing such as ray traced shadows and reflections. Understandably, this will come at a cost to performance (and the official system requirements are pretty demanding already), which is where AMD’s FSR technology can certainly help with that. In the video below, FSR is able to increase FPS in FC6 from around 60fps to nearly 90fps.
It’s unclear exactly which quality setting of FSR is enabled, but the actual image quality suggests it is either on “Ultra Quality” or just “Quality” mode as it is actually quite sharp, and FSR does introduce some blurriness on lower settings. We’ll have to wait and see when Far Cry 6 actually launches next month though.
What do you think? Are you excited for Far Cry 6? What do you think of the FSR performance boost? Will you be enabling the feature? And what quality setting do you think it is set to? Let us know your thoughts!
