Nvidia plans to remaster PC classics with Ray Tracing

by October 13, 2019 0 comments

Nvidia’s Ray Tracing technology has been around for a while, but it really took off when Control featured it. The game showed how beautiful Ray Tracing can be if correctly implemented and the feature received positive impressions. Nvidia is now trying to capitalise on the opportunity and the hype.  

Recently they had remastered Quake 2, an old classic from id Software. This remaster of the game featured real time Ray Tracing and was called Quake 2 RTX. But apparently this was just the start. Nvidia is looking to remaster another game. Though they have not revealed what game it would be, but in a job posting found by DSO Gaming, Nvidia said that it would be “a title that you know and love”.  

Our guess is as good as yours. It seems like there will be more titles incoming as that is what seems from the job description: 

NVIDIA is kicking off an exciting new game remastering program. We’re cherry-picking some of the greatest titles from the past decades and bringing them into the ray tracing age, giving them state-of-the-art visuals while keeping the gameplay that made them great. The NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios team is picking up the challenge starting with a title that you know and love but we can’t talk about here! We’re building a team of talented, dedicated game developers who are ready to get going quickly. 

Sadly, users without the RTX cards won’t be able to play the remasters, as was with Quake 2 RTX. The remaster was free for anyone who owned the original game, so we can expect that from the coming releases as well. For those who did not own the game, the first three levels were free.
