Black Myth: Wukong Launching With Full Ray Tracing & DLSS 3.5 August 20th

Based on the well-known Monkey King mythology, and the 16th Century Journey To The West novel, the Unreal Engine 5-powered Black Myth: Wukong is at the top of many people’s wish lists thanks to the release of jaw-dropping trailers in recent years.

To take Black Myth: Wukong to the next level, developer Game Science is upgrading the game with Full Ray Tracing, which will be enhanced by NVIDIA DLSS 3.5 with Ray Reconstruction on GeForce RTX PCs, giving GeForce gamers the definitive experience in this eagerly anticipated game. 

Full Ray Tracing is a demanding but highly accurate way to render light and its effect on a scene. Also known as Path Tracing, this advanced ray tracing technique is used by visual effects artists to create film and TV graphics that are indistinguishable from reality, but until the arrival of GeForce RTX GPUs with RT Cores, and the AI-powered acceleration of NVIDIA DLSS, Full Ray Tracing in real-time video games was impossible.

Enabling Full Ray Tracing in Black Myth: Wukong sees environmental effects and detail taken to the next level. Reflections on water reflect all surrounding detail. Water caustics add further realism, accurately rendering the refraction and reflection of light. Fully ray-traced Global Illumination ensures lighting indoors and outdoors is pixel perfect, darkening areas where light is occluded or doesn’t reach, and realistically illuminating the world by bouncing light. And in concert with the lighting system, contact hardening and softening fully ray traced shadows are cast everywhere, rendering the smallest of shadows from leaves and pebbles, and those from geometry-rich buildings, the main character, and the gigantic bosses that must be overcome.

Take a first look at Black Myth: Wukong with Full Ray Tracing and DLSS 3.5 with Ray Reconstruction in the new trailer below.


Black Myth: Wukong launches August 20th - wishlist the game on Steam and the Epic Games Store.

NARAKA: BLADEPOINT Adding Full Ray Tracing & DLSS 3.5

Developed by 24 Entertainment and published by NetEase Games Global, NARAKA: BLADEPOINT is a 60-player melee-focused Battle Royale in where players can experience a unique fighting gameplay, combining fast movements in a large environment and a deep and intense melee combat system based on combos, parries, and counters.

Each week, NARAKA: BLADEPOINT is one of the top 10 most played games on Steam. Having previously added DLSS Super Resolution, DLSS Frame Generation, and NVIDIA Reflex, 24 Entertainment is now upgrading NARAKA: BLADEPOINT with Full Ray Tracing and DLSS 3.5 with Ray Reconstruction.

Global Illumination, Reflections, Ambient Occlusion and Shadows will all be enhanced with richer, more detailed Full Ray Tracing, which will be further enhanced by DLSS 3.5’s Ray Reconstruction technology. Take a first look below in our new, exclusive NARAKA: BLADEPOINT Full Ray Tracing & DLSS 3.5 Gameplay Trailer:


With Full Ray Tracing enabled, the player’s surroundings are perfectly mirrored on water, the environment is naturally and accurately lit, shadows fall realistically across the world, softening as the distance from the shadow caster increases, and the realism of every game element is enhanced with high-fidelity ambient occlusion shading.

Initially, Full Ray Tracing will be available in three Player versus Player and Player versus Enemy areas, with further areas receiving upgrades over time. 

If you don’t have a GeForce RTX PC or laptop, you can play NARAKA: BLADEPOINT in the cloud using the same technologies as GeForce RTX 40-Series owners, including DLSS 3.5, Full Ray Tracing, thanks to NVIDIA GeForce NOW Ultimate. NARAKA: BLADEPOINT is already available on GeForce NOW with DLSS 3 and Reflex, and when the Full Ray Tracing update is released it too will be available to play via the cloud.

Portal with RTX DLSS 3.5 & RTX IO Update Available Now

Portal with RTX reimagines Valve’s timeless classic using full ray tracing, also known as path tracing, to accurately model the real-world properties of light, and how that light affects every surface and object. Illumination, shadows, reflections, refraction, and everything in between are all a result of the fully ray traced world and their interactions with upgraded assets, adding dazzling detail and dynamism to levels and effects.

Today, the free game upgrades to NVIDIA DLSS 3.5, leveraging its AI-powered Ray Reconstruction technology to improve the fidelity of full ray tracing, and the responsiveness of dynamic lighting effects. And with the introduction of NVIDIA RTX IO, texture loading times are accelerated, and the file size of the game has been reduced.

Star WarsTM Outlaws Launching This Year With DLSS 3, Ray Tracing & Reflex

Later this year, experience the first-ever open world Star Wars™ game, Star Wars™ Outlaws. Star Wars™ Outlaws will invite players to experience the Star Wars galaxy like never before through an original story set between  Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™ and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™.  As the Galactic Empire relentlessly pursues the final defeat of the Rebel Alliance, the criminal underworld thrives. Fans will play as cunning scoundrel, Kay Vess and her loyal companion Nix, as they attempt one of the greatest heists the Outer Rim has ever seen. Seeking the means to start a new life, players will join Kay and Nix as they fight, steal, and outwit their way through the galaxy’s crime syndicates and join the galaxy’s most wanted.


“Here at Massive Entertainment, worldbuilding is a part of our DNA, and what better way to showcase our craft than creating the first-ever open world Star Wars game. Filled with distinct locations across the galaxy’s outer rim, both iconic and new, players will be able to experience the Star Wars underworld like never before. DLSS 3 gives us the performance headroom to bring our vision to life and to support additional ray tracing features, helping gamers fully immerse themselves in the adventures of Kay Vess and Nix.” - Tobias Carlsson, Technical Director

NVIDIA has collaborated with Ubisoft and LucasFilm Games to deliver the definitive PC experience for Star WarsOutlaws players, leveraging the game-changing technologies of GeForce RTX GPUs to enhance graphics, accelerate performance, and make gameplay even more responsive.

From day one, GeForce RTX gamers can activate NVIDIA DLSS 3, multiplying performance with DLSS Frame Generation on GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards, and boosting performance considerably with DLSS Super Resolution on all other GeForce RTX GPUs.

Powered by new hardware capabilities of the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture used in GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs, DLSS 3 generates entirely new high quality frames, rather than just pixels. Through a process detailed in full in our NVIDIA DLSS 3 article, DLSS 3 combines DLSS Super Resolution technology and DLSS Frame Generation to reconstruct 7 out of every 8 of the displayed pixels, multiplying performance even in CPU-bound scenarios.

Additionally, all GeForce RTX gamers can activate NVIDIA Reflex, reducing system latency in Star WarsOutlaws. System latency affects the time it takes for actions to occur in-game - the lower your latency, the more responsive a game becomes, and the better the gameplay feels. Available in over 100 games, Reflex is used by over 50 million users each month, and with there being no downsides to the tech whatsoever, it’s a must-have for gamers wanting the most responsive experience possible.

Star WarsOutlaws is built using Massive Entertainment’s incredible Snowdrop Engine, enabling the developers to create the most detailed Star Wars™ experience you’ve ever seen, with perfectly recreated ships and iconic locations, and stunning worlds for you to visit and experience. 

As part of our collaboration, Star WarsOutlaws on PC is also being enhanced with NVIDIA RTX Direct Illumination (RTXDI) and ray-traced Global Illumination lighting, taking visuals to the next level. RTXDI figures out the most important light samples in Star WarsOutlaws to cast physically accurate ray-traced shadows. Performance remains fast thanks to RTXDI’s innovative design, and on GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs ray tracing gets even faster thanks to each card’s fourth generation, super fast Ray Tracing Cores.

Even if you don’t have a GeForce RTX PC or laptop, you can still enjoy Star WarsOutlaws by streaming it from the cloud with the same technologies as GeForce RTX 40-Series owners, including DLSS 3 and Reflex, thanks to NVIDIA GeForce NOW Ultimate. Members can play over 1,800 of the real and full PC versions of games they already own from Steam, Epic Games Store, Xbox, Ubisoft Connect, and GOG.com. Head over to the GeForce NOW website to learn more.

We’ll have more to share about the PC technology and features of Star WarsOutlaws closer to the game’s release, so be sure to stay tuned to GeForce.com.
