Game Ready For Portal with RTX - Out Now For Free On PC!

Now 15 years old, Portal remains a timeless classic, with gameplay as fresh, engaging and exciting as it was back in 2007. Today, we’re releasing a fully ray-traced reimagining of Portal in collaboration with Valve, for free. Called Portal with RTX, it uses the power of GeForce RTX graphics cards to render every aspect of Portal with previously unimaginable, jaw-dropping detail.

Each ray of light uses GPU-intensive full ray tracing, also known as path tracing, to accurately model the real-world properties of light, and how that light affects every surface and object. Compared to our work on Quake II RTX and Minecraft with RTX, light bounces up to four times more, and new technologies are incorporated, making Portal with RTX one of the most advanced showcases for simulated light in gaming.

Illumination, shadows, reflections, refraction, and everything in between are all a result of the fully ray traced world, and its interactions with the upgraded and enhanced assets that have been rebuilt hand in hand with Valve.

Get further details about the tech, enhancements, and new features of Portal with RTX by heading on over to our launch article.

Game Ready For The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s Next-Gen Update

On December 14th, all The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt PC players will receive a free update that adds various gameplay changes, new quest content, and new graphics features that take full advantage of the latest PCs and laptops.

Here’s what to expect:

  • RTX Global Illumination (RTXGI) adds more immersive and realistic outdoor ray-traced lighting
  • Ray-traced ambient occlusion improves shading around objects occluding light
  • Ray-traced shadows improve the fidelity, clarity and visibility of shadows
  • Ray-traced reflections increase the accuracy and quality of reflections on bodies of water and other suitably reflective surfaces

On top of that, Ultra+ settings increase draw distances, foliage density, background character detail, asset quality, and more. Texture resolutions are increased and environments gain new geometric detail. The list goes on!

To accelerate your performance when all of these features are enabled and maxed out, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s next-gen update also introduces support for NVIDIA DLSS 3, enabling GeForce RTX 40 Series gamers to multiply their performance. All other GeForce RTX gamers can accelerate their frame rates with NVIDIA DLSS 2. And everyone can reduce system latency with NVIDIA Reflex.

To get these next-gen upgrades, simply download and install The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. On December 14th, CD PROJEKT RED will launch the free update, and your game will be automatically enhanced. Stay tuned to their social media pages for further updates and the complete set of patch notes.
