Rise of the Tomb Raider – Getting a Wider Perspective

0

Rise of the Tomb Raider is easily one of the best games released over the past year, and it’s by far one of my all-time favorites with its addicting adventurous gameplay. And when it comes to Rise of the Tomb Raider on PC, it also ends up being one of the best-looking games out there.

I originally played through and beat Rise of the Tomb Raider using a 16:9 1440p monitor. The game is so beautiful that I ended up taking hundreds of screenshots all the way through my journey. However, just recently I got my hands on an ultrawide 21:9 (2560×1080) monitor and wanted to see more of the game with a wider perspective.

It’s incredible how much having an ultrawide monitor opens the world of Rise of the Tomb Raider and how it adds even more excitement to the adventure. Being able to see more of the wilderness, tombs, and other surroundings on the edge of the screen expands the atmosphere and further engages the player into the game. It’s awesome.

I’ve pretty much fallen in love with ultrawide gaming. It’s not just because of Rise of the Tomb Raider, I’ve loved every game I’ve played in ultrawide resolution, but seeing even more of the gorgeous graphics in Rise of the Tomb Raider definitely helps.

I’ve been gaming in ultrawide resolution with the Predator Z301c from Acer. You can read more about the monitor and my experience with it here. And as you’ll read, the monitor is great for competitive multiplayer gaming, but it’s also fantastic for widening the experience of such beautiful worlds such as Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Here are some screenshots and gameplay videos from my latest Rise of the Tomb Raider journey in ultrawide resolution thanks to Acer’s Predator Z301c monitor.
