"With the game’s October 25th release fast approaching, we can now reveal that the game is being enhanced with real-time ray-traced shadows, within both the single-player campaign and 2v2 Gunfight multiplayer mode," NVIDIA says.
Here's a look at the first ray-traced trailer for Modern Warfare...
"Our work with NVIDIA GPUs has helped us throughout the PC development of Modern Warfare," said Dave Stohl, co-studio head at Infinity Ward. "We’ve seamlessly integrated the RTX features like ray tracing and adaptive shading into our rendering pipeline. It’s been a great addition to our existing technology, and we look forward to our PC fans experiencing it for themselves very soon."
Modern Warfare and Watch Dogs: Legion are far from the only games getting spiffy ray-traced visuals. There are a bunch more on tap as well. They include Control (ships August 27, 2019), Dying Light 2 (ships in the first half of 2020), Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 (shipping in March 2020), and Synced: Off Planet.
That latter entry is being developed by Tencent Next Studios and is a new PvPvE and co-op action title set in the future. Here's a look...
"Metro Exodus’ use of global illumination made it a showcase title for ray tracing. Now, NVIDIA, 4A Games and Deep Silver are adding ray-traced global illumination with emissive lighting via the upcoming The Two Colonels DLC," NVIDIA says.
In the meantime, for those who want to enable ray-traced effects, the RTX series is pretty much the only option.
