Top 5 Upcoming PC Games That Will Support NVIDIA’s New Ray-Tracing Technology

We all know that Nvidia unveiled the new GeForce RTX line of graphics processors at Gamescom this year. Utilizing the absolute latest technologies, these GPUs will be capable of real-time ray tracing technology, a huge step forward for graphics in gaming. But the question arises every time what ray-tracing technology actually is and are there any current game that supports this technology?

In short, the ray tracing graphics cards will affect the upcoming supported games by determining the path of photons of light in virtual environments, so those virtual environments look as realistic as possible. Being able to work out how light should fall in a scene requires a lot of computing power, even more so as objects and light sources start moving (as they tend to do in games and movies). In this post, you will know such top 5 upcoming pc games that will support NVIDIA’s new ray-tracing technology selected by our editors !!!

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is an action-adventure video game developed by Eidos Montréal in conjunction with Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix. It continues the narrative from the 2015 game Rise of the Tomb Raider and is the twelfth mainline entry in the Tomb Raider series.

Rich Briggs, senior brand director, Crystal Dynamics said that:

We had an excellent partnership with NVIDIA on Rise of the Tomb Raider. Now, thanks to NVIDIA RTX technology, we are pleased to announce that Shadow of the Tomb Raider will, quite fittingly, feature real-time shadows.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider stays true to its name and instead uses the tech to help create softer, more natural shadows. It is scheduled to be released on 14 September 2018 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is an action role-playing video game developed by Ubisoft Quebec and published by Ubisoft. It is the eleventh major installment, and twentieth overall, in the Assassin’s Creed series and the successor to 2017’s Assassin’s Creed Origins.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey official PC System Requirements has been announced. Ubisoft has shared the details via their official website and the good news is that this time around they have provided Assassin’s Creed fans with some additional information like at what Frame Rate and Resolution you will be able to run the game.

NVIDIA also released a new game ready driver for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey which is optimized to support their brand-new GeForce RTX graphics cards. There are new systems, dialogue options, and a whole lot more, all of which is best experienced with the new Game Ready driver installed. Ubisoft also made it clear that Nvidia’s RTX cards will be supported at the launch of the game on 5 October 2018.

3. CD Projekt’s Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 is an upcoming role-playing video game developed and published by CD Projekt. Adapted from the 1988 tabletop game Cyberpunk 2020, it is set fifty-seven years later in dystopian Night City, California, an open world with six distinct regions.

The release date of this game is still not confirmed yet but it is estimated to be released later next year (2019). CD Projekt is trying hard to make this game more better and unique as you can already see the gameplays on youtube. Once a rumor of a new leaked image of Cyberpunk 2077 and its settings window was seen, where we can see that other than the retro feel of its UI, there are options for both NVIDIA ray tracing and HairWorks technologies.

This would imply that Cyberpunk 2077 may have support for RTX in the near future. Although the leaked image was confirmed fake by community lead Marcin momot of CD Projekt. But we all know that Cyberpunk 2077 is a futuristic and new generation game to which the developers will surely want the game to support the best graphics available on market for better performance and best in class realistic graphics.

If NVIDIA can secure RTX technology in Cyberpunk 2077 it would have one of the biggest games of 2019 (or whenever it arrives) as a showcase for its next-gen GeForce RTX 20 series graphics cards. A real-time ray traced world of Cyberpunk 2077 would be damn beautiful, and would see The Witcher developer taking to new heights.

4. Metro Exodus

Metro Exodus is an upcoming first-person shooter video game developed by the Ukrainian Malta-based studio 4A Games and published by Deep Silver. It is the third installment in the Metro video game series based on Dmitry Glukhovsky’s novels. It is set to follow the events of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light.

Oleksandr Shyshkovtsov, CTO, 4A Games said that:

With GeForce RTX the future is now, and NVIDIA is reinventing graphics by enabling real-time ray tracing. For the first time, the NVIDIA RTX platform has given us the opportunity to integrate real-time global illumination into our engine, and specifically our upcoming title, Metro Exodus. This allows us to achieve the most realistic lighting simulations seen in real-time graphics.

Specifically, Metro Exodus will feature Ray Traced Global Illumination, for vastly-improved natural lighting, and Ray Traced Ambient Occlusion, for the addition of pixel-perfect contact shadows where objects occlude light. The result is a richer, more immersive, more realistic world, with a graphical fidelity that was previously beyond our reach. It is scheduled to be released on 22 February 2019 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Atomic Heart is an adventure first-person shooter, events of which unfolds in an alternate universe during the high noon of the Soviet Union. The main character of the game is a special agent, who was sent to a highly secret object by the Soviet government after it went radio silent.

Robert Bagratuni, CEO, Mundfish said that:

It was remarkably easy to integrate ray tracing into Atomic Heart using the NVIDIA RTX platform. As always, NVIDIA provided a great toolset along with their expertise, and GeForce RTX provided the necessary horsepower.

Ray Traced Reflections add accurate, real-time reflections to Atomic Heart’s curved objects and surfaces, to its super shiny labs, to its water, and to numerous other game elements. Previously, reflecting much of this detail was impossible, and what could be reflected was seen at a far lower level of fidelity, without an accurate representation of curved surfaces, or real-time updates of on and off-screen reflections.

Atomic Heart launches late next year (2019), its unique look and style will be enhanced by the addition of NVIDIA RTX Ray Tracing.
