NVIDIA DLSS Available Now In Nioh 2 - The Complete Edition and Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord. Plus, Unreal Engine 4 DLSS Plugin Released

By Andrew Burnes on February 23, 2021 | Featured Stories GeForce RTX GPUs NVIDIA DLSS

Each month we’re working with developers to bring NVIDIA DLSS and other technologies to the latest and greatest games, and this month’s no different, with DLSS coming to Nioh 2 - The Complete Edition and Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord.

Only GeForce RTX GPUs feature Tensor Cores, dedicated AI processors that power revolutionary technologies such as NVIDIA DLSS, which greatly accelerates frame rates. With faster performance you can enjoy smoother gameplay, or reinvest those frames in higher detail levels, higher rendering resolutions, and higher ray tracing settings, giving you the most immersive experience possible.

Nioh 2 - The Complete Edition Adds NVIDIA DLSS

Nioh 2, Koei Tecmo’s popular masocore action RPG, recently launched on the PC as Nioh 2 - The Complete Edition. The beautifully crafted, challenging game received excellent reviews on console, and on PC everything’s enhanced and all DLC is included.

With a new update available now, you can enjoy Nioh 2 at 4K with maxed out settings at even faster frame rates thanks to the addition of NVIDIA DLSS.


In the most performance-intensive moments of the game, NVIDIA DLSS can accelerate frame rates by up to 58%, enabling all GeForce RTX gamers to enjoy Nioh 2 at over 60 FPS at all times. And during less intensive moments, NVIDIA DLSS will enable you to play at 120 FPS, Nioh 2’s max frame rate, for the smoothest, most responsive, most enjoyable experience possible.

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord Available Now with NVIDIA DLSS

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord added NVIDIA DLSS support this month, accelerating performance by up to 50% at 4K, allowing gamers to hit 60+ FPS across all GeForce RTX GPUs.

To demonstrate how NVIDIA DLSS makes gameplay faster, smoother and more enjoyable in the action-packed title, check out our new Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord DLSS video:


NVIDIA DLSS Unreal Engine 4 Marketplace Plugin

Unreal Engine 4 is the gaming industry’s most used engine, powering hundreds of titles and thousands of indie projects. The tools are simple enough that virtually anyone can make something cool, there are free examples and assets to use, and the documentation is extensive. Unreal Engine is also supported with a massive catalogue of plugins that bring new capabilities to the engine, making development even easier.

To bring DLSS to more games and gamers, we have recently released NVIDIA DLSS as a free plugin via the Unreal Engine marketplace. Once enabled, your players can enjoy great scaling across all GeForce RTX GPUs and resolutions, including the new ultra performance mode for 8K gaming.

In fact, over a dozen content creation app developers have integrated DLSS to accelerate their creative workflows. 1 World, D5 Render, Goodbye Kansas Studios, Hyundai Motors, Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), Orca Studios, and Surreal Film Productions are all using DLSS in apps for architecture, virtual production, product design, and more, to improve productivity.
