Minecraft Gets Ray-Tracing and Many More at Gamescom 2019

As you might have heard already, ray tracing has taken over Gamescom 2019. For an instance, Nvidia announced real-time ray tracing for blockbuster franchises such as Minecraft and Dying Light 2, and have shared plenty of new trailers and screenshots for Bloodlines 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Watch Dogs: Legion, and other upcoming AAA ray-traced games.

Today, Nvidia posted new videos highlighting Minecraft, SYNCED: Off-Planet and Watch Dogs: Legion that contain up to 5 minutes of ray-traced gameplay goodness

Big Performance

Nvidia also released a Gamescom 2019 Game Ready Driver that packs some big software optimizations for Apex Legends, Battlefield V, Forza Horizon 4, Strange Brigade and World War Z. They are expected to increase framerates by up to 23%.
