Blockbusters Benchmarked: Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed and Gotham Knights with Intel XeSS

Two new multiplayer adventures invite you into their universes– Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed and Gotham Knights are out now. Get both games when you purchase an Intel® Arc™ A750 or A770 GPU and join the Intel® Gaming Access Program*. Read on to see how these great games are even better with XeSS!

Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is a fun, multiplayer game. Four proton pack wielding Ghostbusters attempt to catch a Ghost haunting unique locations in asymmetrical multiplayer battles (online multiplayer or offline solo). Players have all the iconic gear and gadgets, from Proton Packs to PKE Meters and Ghost Traps, that fans would expect and new gamers to the universe will enjoy when playing as a Ghostbuster. Ghosts have multiple abilities in their arsenal, like possessing objects, of course sliming, and more, that make haunting all the various locations a blast to play. And yes, you can hear the original film actors reprising their roles as Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddemore, along with some new friends! If the fun art style looks familiar, it’s because IllFonic is the same studio who brought you Arcadegeddon, also enhanced with XeSS.

Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed runs great on Intel Arc graphics, especially with Intel’s AI-powered XeSS upscaling active. At 1440p Max settings, the Intel Arc A770 GPU hits 130 FPS with XeSS Performance mode. That’s more than double the performance you’d get without XeSS. We’ve got even more XeSS details in Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed here.

Gotham Knights gives players new ways to explore the most stunning Gotham City yet. Batman’s four closest associates — Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing, and Red Hood — each traverse Gotham with their own strengths and story details to uncover as they investigate their mentor’s mysterious death. Players can progress through the story alone or with a friend and switch through characters as they please, each earning new abilities and rich cosmetic customization as they level up. The grungy and graffitied Gotham City looks best on PC and XeSS gives players the best visuals without sacrificing framerates.

Our October Game On Driver update ensures the smoothest experience for Gotham Knights on Intel Arc graphics. The game’s ray traced visuals make the grimy glow of Gotham shine better than ever, and Intel XeSS makes certain your fast-paced fighting isn’t slowed down. With the game’s cinematic visuals turned up to Max settings at 1440p and XeSS Performance mode, Gotham Knights runs at an impressive 78 and 80 FPS on the Intel Arc A750 and A770 GPUs respectively. See more of Gotham Knights on Intel hardware here.
