The game Avatar Frontiers of Pandora could very well be the visual gem of the year 2023. This possibility is largely explained by a special option, although its use may put a strain on the performance of your graphics card.
Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora | The new graphic sensation
The release of Avatar Frontiers of Pandora was marked by a pleasant surprise in our reviews. Although closer to a solid AAA title than the much-hyped AAAA, fans of this universe or casual enthusiasts should not overlook it. One of the most impressive elements of the experience lies in its graphics and artistic direction, offering a truly sublime visual rendering and an immersive journey into the world of Pandora. However, we’ve managed to discover a way to take it even further.
Avatar Frontiers of Pandora provides a stunning visual experience, especially if you have a powerful machine and play in Ultra mode, promising an exceptional visual impact. However, would you be willing to push the boundaries of this option? If so, know that a hidden setting called “Unobtainium” has been mentioned by the studio, and it might even challenge the performance of an RTX 4090 GPU. Thanks to this setting, the game becomes almost the Crysis of modern times.
For curious players looking to unlock this option, the procedure is relatively simple. Just enter the code “-unlockmaxsettings” in the “configure launch options” menu of the Ubisoft Connect client. This grants you access to this unprecedented feature that can enhance ray tracing, among other things. It also has the ability to improve shadow quality, reflection resolution, and various other aspects. A video detailing the changes brought about by this setting is available below. However, be warned that it demands considerable resources, to the point where an RTX 4090 GPU struggles to maintain the game above 60fps in 4K with DLSS in Performance mode.
It’s important to emphasize that not all PCs will be able to take advantage of this option. Ubisoft has warned that this special setting is extremely demanding in terms of currently available hardware and is designed to fully leverage future hardware to maintain a level of quality similar to that of Avatar Frontiers of Pandora on PC in the years to come. The game is developed with the Snowdrop Engine, of which the company is proud. It’s up to you to judge if your machine is up to this technical feat.
