Battlefield V, NVIDIA RTX Ray Tracing, And GeForce RTX Combine To Deliver Next-Gen Graphics in Games – See It In Action In Our Exclusive Trailer

By Andrew Burnes on August 19, 2018

Battlefield VTM goes back to the series’ roots, with an unexpected portrayal of World War 2, mankind’s greatest conflict. In May, we announced a partnership with DICE to make the PC edition of Battlefield V even better with Game Ready drivers, Optimal Playable settings, and unspecified “advanced NVIDIA-platform gaming technologies.” Now, we’re lifting the curtain, unveiling spectacularly realistic and accurate ray-traced reflections, which enhance the fidelity of reflective surfaces in every level and locale in Battlefield V.

These new reflections, made possible by GeForce RTX graphics cards and the NVIDIA RTX Platform, overcome the limitations of traditional Screen Space Reflection techniques, enabling full-detail reflections that mirror the action happening in and around the player’s field of view. As you’ll see, they have a tremendous impact on fidelity and immersion, heightening realism and the intensity of events, as now even the surrounding chaos is visible, making players feel as though the battle is unfolding in a full 360 degrees around them.

For a taste, check out our exclusive Battlefield V GeForce RTX Trailer below, captured on a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, or head on down to our Gamescom 2018 event tomorrow, where we have 64-player Battlefield V multiplayer matches running with ray tracing enabled on GeForce RTX 2080 Ti PCs.

For the full lowdown on real-time ray tracing, check out our Graphics Reinvented article. It covers all the ray tracing techniques utilized in RTX games, whilst explaining the tech in understandable terms, with helpful diagrams and snazzy interactive comparisons. In addition, it dives into DLAA, and all the other cool graphical technology supported by the Turing architecture and GeForce RTX graphics cards.

Capture Incredible Screenshots With NVIDIA Ansel

In Battlefield V, the acclaimed single-player War Stories return from Battlefield 1, where players will partake in the untold stories of World War 2. As players witness the war through the eyes of men and women who changed the world forever, you can capture these moments yourself just like they’re shown in the game’s stunning official screenshots.

Thanks to our partnership with DICE, you’ll now have the chance to create your own impressive in-game screenshots using NVIDIA Ansel, which enables GeForce gamers to pause the action at any moment with Alt+F2, frame the scene with a floating freecam , and snap a custom in-game photo. These shots can then be further personalized with stackable filters and aesthetic tweaks, allowing the creation of truly unique images that can be shared to our ShotWithGeForce NVIDIA Ansel photo site with just a few clicks.

With a keen eye, exquisite, wallpaper-worthy in-game photos can be captured, like the example shown below:

Battlefield V & NVIDIA RTX: Reinventing Graphics

DICE and NVIDIA have a long history of pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, and now we’ve joined forces to place Battlefield V on the cutting-edge of videogame graphics with the addition of NVIDIA RTX Ray Tracing.

This brand new, real-time technology delivers unprecedented graphical fidelity in massive multiplayer levels filled with up to 64 players, running on the new GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
