NVIDIA DLSS 3 Launching In Another 6 Games, Marvel’s Midnight Suns & HITMAN 3

NVIDIA DLSS has revolutionized graphics rendering, using AI and GeForce RTX Tensor Cores to boost frame rates while delivering crisp, high quality images that rival native resolution. And DLSS 3 adds new Frame Generation technology to multiply performance.


DLSS 3 adoption continues to accelerate, with 6 new games adding support in the next few weeks,  including Dying Light 2 Stay Human, HITMAN 3, Dakar Desert Rally, Deliver Us Mars, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, and PERISH.  

And there’s a bunch more DLSS 3 games coming down the pipe, too, including Atomic Heart, ILL SPACE, THRONE AND LIBERTY, The Day Before, Tower of Fantasy, Warhaven, and Witchfire, which we announced earlier this month.

NVIDIA DLSS 3 Multiplies Frame Rates

Powered by new hardware capabilities of the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture, 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 7/8ths of the displayed pixels, accelerating performance.


In GPU-limited games, DLSS 2 Super Resolution technology can increase your frame rates by up to 2X. With DLSS 3, we can multiply performance.

Certain games make extensive use of the CPU which can limit performance. DLSS 3 operates on the GPU, bypassing CPU bottlenecks and boosting frame rates. In Microsoft Flight Simulator, for example, DLSS 3 boosts frame rates by up to 2X.

DLSS 3 games are backwards compatible with DLSS 2 technology - developers simply integrate DLSS 3, and DLSS 2, also known as DLSS Super Resolution, is supported by default. Additionally, integrations of DLSS 3 also include NVIDIA Reflex, reducing system latency for all GeForce RTX users, making games more responsive.

Marvel’s Midnight Suns DLSS 3 Update Available Now

From the creators of the critically-acclaimed tactical XCOM series comes Marvel’s Midnight Suns, where the rich story, character relationships, customization and progression of an RPG combines with the tactical strategy and combat mechanics of a card-based tactics game. Set in the darker side of the Marvel Universe, you will forge unbreakable bonds with legendary Marvel Super Heroes and dangerous supernatural warriors in the fight against the world’s greatest threat yet… the demonic forces of Lilith and the elder god Chthon.

Launched last month to critical acclaim, VGC awarded Marvel’s Midnight Suns with a 5 out of 5, calling it a “modern strategy classic;” PC Gamer said it was “completely brilliant” and scored it an 88 out of 100, and Rock Paper Shotgun called it “one of the best superhero games full stop.”


At launch, Marvel’s Midnight Suns boasted immersive, ray-traced ambient occlusion and ray-traced reflections effects, improving the fidelity and spectacle of battles, and adding detail to your exploration of the heroes’ home base. To ensure the highest levels of performance, NVIDIA DLSS 2 was available alongside ray tracing, and now Marvel’s Midnight Suns is upgrading to NVIDIA DLSS 3, further accelerating performance for GeForce RTX 40 Series gamers.


When activated, DLSS 3 multiplies performance on GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards by up to 2.2X. Without DLSS 3, performance becomes CPU limited at 70-80 FPS, preventing players from utilizing the full capabilities of their systems. With DLSS 3, we blow past the limit and deliver a significantly faster, more fluid experience for GeForce RTX 40 Series gamers.

Alongside this game update, which includes DLSS 3, 2K and Firaxis Games also released a new DLC featuring Deadpool, everyone's favorite Merc with a Mouth, who teams up with the Midnight Suns! With Marvel’s Midnight Suns - The Good, the Bad, and the Undead*, you can add Deadpool to your roster, play new story missions, encounter new enemies, unlock and add Deadpool’s Abbey upgrade to your homebase, and experience Deadpool’s trademark banter with the rest of the game’s roster.

*This content requires Marvel's Midnight Suns to play and is included in the Season Pass.
