As Bethesda teased last night, Doom Eternal is indeed getting ray tracing. Furthermore, while Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 may be one of the best looking action-adventure games on PC, and Rainbow Six Siege is no slouch, they’re about to get even nicer as Nvidia has unveiled that all these games will be getting support for its advanced ray tracing and DLSS features.
Nvidia revealed the news during its Computex presentation yesterday, which it then kindly posted about on its website. In total, eight new games are getting support for these new features in its RTX card series. Beyond the three above, perhaps the most surprising was the inclusion of DayZ creator Dean Hall’s new game Icarus, which isn’t due out until later this year.
The other games include LEGO Builder’s Journey, DYING: 1983, The Ascent, and The Persistence. While ray tracing is certainly gorgeous and very welcome, DLSS might prove the bigger boon for gamers. Nvidia’s “Deep Learning Super Sampling” allows players to up their resolution without a significant increase in system power, so it’s certainly very welcome in the likes of the systems-intensive Red Dead Redemption 2.
