Nvidia Confirm 6 Upcoming Game Releases With RTX Support
Mike Sanders / 9 months ago
Despite launching in late 2018, Nvidia has yet to see many game developers truly adopt and utilize the RTX features offered in the graphics cards. In fact, at the time of writing only around a dozen or so offer support. Even of those limited numbers, not all necessarily offer it for both ray tracing and DLSS.
The short version is, owning an Nvidia 20XX cards purely for the RTX features hasn’t been that great. Well, at least not so far…
We fully expect that this situation will change in the coming years. Specifically, as more and more developers look to ‘catch-up’ and utilize the technology. What is helping somewhat is that consumers have (slowly but surely) started moving over to the 20XX platform.
In some anticipation of this, however, Nvidia has posted a blog confirmed 6 new upcoming game releases that are confirmed to be using their RTX features. Let’s take a look!
Memory Bright Infinite
“Bright Memory: Episode 1 launched on Steam early 2019 to incredible success. Surprising its sole developer, who had made the action game as a demo for a longer series of connected Bright Memory episodes. Now, the newly formed FYQD-Studio Team is redeveloping and remastering Episode 1. By scrapping the episodic model to instead make one longer game: Bright Memory Infinite. At GTC, the latest demo was shown for the project, demonstrating stunning real-time ray-traced effects.”
“Project X: Project X is a new ray-traced action shooter from popular anime game developer Mihoyo, coming in mid-2021.
