NVIDIA DLSS 3 Plugin for Unreal Engine 5.2 Released, Making It Even Easier For Games To Multiply Frame Rates

Each week, we’re bringing you news of the latest DLSS and ray tracing integrations in games and apps. Last week, F1Ⓡ 23, Daydream: Forgotten Sorrow, and Layers of Fear launched with DLSS 2, and we shared new trailers and screenshots from upcoming RTX and DLSS games, including Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, Party Animals, Warhaven, and Witchfire.

This week, our Unreal Engine 5.2 DLSS 3 plugin has been released, making it even easier for developers to integrate, and we celebrate the release of two new DLSS 2 titles, Forever Skies and Trepang2.

NVIDIA DLSS 3 Plugin For Unreal Engine 5.2 Released

Unreal Engine is an open and advanced real-time 3D creation tool, enabling game developers and creators the freedom and control to deliver cutting-edge real-time 3D content, interactive experiences, and immersive virtual worlds.

In February 2021 the DLSS Super Resolution plugin was released for Unreal Engine 4, making it a cinch for any developer to accelerate the performance of their game or app, further accelerating adoption of DLSS.

Today, Unreal Engine was upgraded with the release of the DLSS 3 Frame Generation plugin for Unreal Engine 5.2. Now all Unreal Engine developers and creators can take full advantage of DLSS 3’s AI-powered performance multiplier.

"NVIDIA DLSS 3 introduces truly impressive frame generation technology and the Unreal Engine 5.2 plugin will offer developers a great choice for increased quality and performance of their games." - Nick Penwarden, Vice President of Engineering at Epic Games.

Unreal Engine developers can get started now with help from our plugin integration blog, and we recommend checking out a recent Inside Unreal interview that Epic held with NVIDIA developers, talking in-depth about the new Unreal Engine 5.2 plugin.
