Watch Dogs: Legion is now out, allowing players to recruit pretty much any NPC in the game to help liberate a near-future London from its oppressors. As our review points out, it’s a bit too much of a formulaic Ubisoft open world game, but there is fun to be had, and on PC there’s plenty of graphical settings, including ray tracing, and support for ultra-high definition resolutions.

With the Nvidia RTX 3090, we’ve also now got a GPU that puts in a decent performance when it comes to 8K. In our Nvidia RTX 3090 vs RTX Titan smackdown, we found the RTX 3090 did a decent job of running games like Doom Eternal and Death Stranding at monstrous 7,680 x 4,320 resolutions.
