by on20 August 2019

Minecraft, Watch Dogs Legion, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 and more

Nvidia took Gamescom 2019 by storm, showing a bit more games with RTX as well as announcing some new titles that have joined the list.

After losing Assetto Corsa Competizione as an RTX title, which was a big blow, Nvidia and its partner developer released screenshots, trailers, and information about titles we already knew will support RTX, as well as some new titles, like the Minecraft.

Although Mojang canceled the Super Duper Graphics Pack for Minecraft, which should have brought improved visuals like dynamic shadows, directional lighting, and more, it appears that Nvidia came to the rescue with RTX. To be available for the DirectX 12 version of Minecraft, DXR raytracing will bring real-time global illumination and Nvidia will bring, according to Nvidia, "lifelike lighting, reflections, shadows, and much more".

The DXR Minecraft release will be a part of a free update and is planned for next year.

Watch Dogs: Legion, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare get new RTX trailers

Nvidia has released a couple of new trailers showing RTX effects, including ray tracing, in a couple of upcoming games, including Watch Dogs: Legion. The game will feature raytraced reflections on reflective surfaces and it looks quite impressive. Watch Dogs: Legion come in March 2020.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launch is just around the corner, on October 25th, 2019, and according to Nvidia, the game will feature raytraced shadows, Nvidia Adaptive Shading, and some "other" Nvidia technologies. Furthermore, the RTX effects will only be limited to specific modes, mostly single-player one, while most multi-player modes will this lack support.

One of the games that are definitely on our most-wanted list is Paradox Interactive's Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2, and while we already had a confirmation that it supports Nvidia RTX, this is the first time we see it in a trailer. The game will feature raytraced reflections as well as support for Nvidia DLSS, and the trailer looks quite impressive.

More titles hop on Nvidia RTX train

In addition to these couple of games, as well as Minecraft, there are a couple of new titles that will support RTX, with Dying Light 2 as the biggest addition. While there are still no details which RTX effects will the game use, Techland's Pawel Rohleder said, "RTX has allowed us to push the visual boundaries of Dying Light 2. Being an open world game set in a world of the infected it’s important for us to really create as realistic an experience as possible. We’re excited to push the limits of graphic fidelity and see where the full implementation of RTX takes us."

Of course, the big thing are new RTX screenshots from CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 game, probably the biggest title on Nvidia's RTX support list.

Nvidia has managed to push a couple of new developers on the RTX train, and hopefully, we'll see more in the coming months.
