Cyberpunk 2077: NVIDIA Partnership Brings Ray Tracing To Hugely-Anticipated Game

Cyberpunk 2077 is perhaps the most anticipated game of current times, with over 100 E3 2018 awards for its unveiling, and unprecedented interest for every screenshot and update since. Coming to you from the developers of the critically-acclaimed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Cyberpunk 2077 is set in a future metropolis called Night City, starring “V”, a hired gun on the rise in a world of cyberenhanced street warriors, tech-savvy netrunners and corporate life-hackers.


Featuring CD PROJEKT RED’s hallmark concept of choices and consequences, players will face difficult decisions that ripple through the entire game, and will have unprecedented choice on how to tackle missions and scenarios. And of course, everything will play out at an incredible level of detail, beyond anything previously seen, just as it did in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

For Cyberpunk 2077, we’ve partnered with CD PROJEKT RED as an official technology partner to bring real-time ray tracing to the game.

“Cyberpunk 2077 is an incredibly ambitious game, mixing first person perspective and deep role-playing, while also creating an intricate and immersive world in which to tell this story. We believe the world of Cyberpunk will greatly benefit from the realistic lighting that ray tracing delivers,” said Matt Wuebbling, head of GeForce marketing at NVIDIA.

For a first look at real-time ray tracing in Cyberpunk 2077, check out these exclusive 4K gameplay screenshots:

“Ray tracing allows us to realistically portray how light behaves in a crowded urban environment,” said Adam Badowski, Head of Studio, CD PROJEKT RED. “Thanks to this technology, we can add another layer of depth and verticality to the already impressive megacity the game takes place in.”
