NVIDIA RTX is the most advanced platform for ray tracing and AI technologies that are revolutionizing the ways we play and create. And RTX momentum continues to build.  Since last CES, we have added over 150 RTX games and applications now supporting RTX accelerated innovations like GPU-accelerated ray tracing, and AI powered NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS).

At CES 2022, the tech industry’s biggest trade show, we’re announcing that RTX technologies are coming to The Day Before, Rainbow Six Extraction, Escape From Tarkov, SUPER PEOPLE, Hitman III, Voidtrain, The Anacrusis, Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis, Ratten Reich, and Midnight Ghost Hunt.

For all the details and exclusive new RTX trailers, keep reading.

The Day Before Launching June 21, 2022 With NVIDIA DLSS & Ray Tracing Effects

FNTASTIC and MYTONA’s The Day Before is an open-world MMO survival game set in a deadly, post-pandemic America overrun by flesh-hungry infected and survivors battling each other for food, weapons, and cars. Players will be able to freely explore the world, including individual homes, skyscrapers, banks, hotels, shopping malls, and more.

When The Day Before launches this June, performance will be accelerated with NVIDIA DLSS, and its detailed world will be greatly enhanced by ray-traced reflections, ambient occlusion, and NVIDIA RTX Global Illumination (RTXGI).

RTXGI generates performant infinite-bounce global illumination light from the sun, moon and other natural light sources. For examples, check out our exclusive The Day Before RTX ON trailer below:
