Cyberpunk 2077 Overdrive With Release Date. Projekt RED CD will offer “full ray tracing”

CD Projekt RED works closely with NVIDIA to improve your PC gaming experience. The developers announced a special Overdrive mode last year, and the expected update release date was confirmed during the Game Developers Conference.

We’ve already seen a small demo of Cyberpunk 2077 Overdrive in January, but there are many indications that the best is yet to come, because during GDC the company confirmed the use of trajectory tracing in Night City, i.e. “full ray tracing”. Players can expect accurate simulation of light.

This technology has so far been used by visual effects artists to create movie and television graphics that NVIDIA says are “indistinguishable from reality.” Now, however, game producers can focus on such effects because The latest GeForce RTX GPUs in conjunction with NVIDIA DLSS bring a new quality to gamers.

Even Bowie Kozowski, NVIDIA’s chief technology development engineer, thinks so Path tracing could ‘revolutionize the entire game development process’

Colorful natural lighting is reflected multiple times throughout the world of Cyberpunk 2077, creating illumination and closing Indirect is more real.”

Cyberpunk 2077 Overdrive will be available on April 11th. But of course, these pleasures will be reserved exclusively for PC gamers who also have the most powerful graphics cards from NVIDIA.
