GAME ENGINE
 
 helldivers2 2024 02 08 11 08 29 873
 
Helldivers 2, developed by Arrowhead Game Studios and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment, is the highly anticipated sequel to 2015's Helldivers. Moving away from the original top-down shooter format, Helldivers 2 expands its horizons by becoming a third-person shooter and offering a more immersive experience on the PlayStation 5 and Windows platforms. The game is designed to engage players in multiplayer combat for up to four players, emphasizing strategy and teamwork with the unique feature of constant friendly fire. Gameplay is enriched with a variety of Strategems - airfields containing equipment such as cluster bombs and machine gun nests, adding layers of tactical depth to combat scenarios.

Graphics: Visual feast

Helldivers 2 sets a new benchmark for visual fidelity, catering to a wide range of players with varying hardware capabilities. For those looking to enjoy the game at 1080p resolution at 60 FPS at medium settings, the game is available on hardware as modest as an Intel Core i7-9700K or an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X paired with a GeForce GTX 2060 or Radeon RX 6600 XT. Gamers looking to push the visual experience to 1440p with 60FPS on high settings will need slightly more powerful hardware, such as a Core i5-12600K or Ryzen 7 5800X3D paired with a GeForce RTX 3070 or Radeon RX 6800. For the ultimate 4K visual spectacle, Helldivers 2 recommends top-end graphics cards such as the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti or Radeon RX 7900 XTX, demonstrating the game's ability to push the boundaries of current hardware for a visually stunning experience.

Game Engine: The Heart of Helldivers 2

While specific details of the game engine running Helldivers 2 are not explicitly mentioned, the game's technical requirements and visual output point to a highly optimized and powerful engine at its core. The ability to scale across different resolutions and hardware configurations means a flexible and robust engine capable of rendering complex scenes, dynamic lighting and detailed textures. The engine is likely to support advanced graphics features such as real-time ray tracing and high dynamic range (HDR) imaging to meet the high specifications recommended for 4K gaming. The seamless multiplayer experience, strategic gameplay elements, and implementation of armor system mechanics further hint at the engine's complex physics and online capabilities, delivering a smooth and immersive gameplay experience.

MSI Afterburner

 
All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality using MSI Afterburner. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. Below is a video of the test segment:

 Our video cards were tested at resolutions of 1920x1080 , 2560x1440 and 3840x2160 with maximum graphics quality settings. The game has a 60 frame lock, but is disabled by enabling vertical sync in the game and disabling it in the drivers.

GPU TEST

In the video card test, the default resolution is 1920x1080; other resolutions are added and removed manually. You can also remove and add any positions of video cards. You can also select any of our test processors from the list in the drop-down menu, comparing its performance with the given video card tests (by default, the most productive solution is selected). The test is carried out on the most powerful CPU in this game and is scaled to other processors, taking into account their testing on NVIDIA and AMD video cards.
