Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Launching With NVIDIA DLSS and Ray Tracing​

Today, we announced that when Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy launches on October 26, the PC version will launch with ray-traced reflections and NVIDIA DLSS, giving GeForce RTX gamers the definitive PC experience.

Developed by Eidos-Montréal in collaboration with Marvel Entertainment, this original take on the fan-favorite Guardians of the Galaxy will take players on a journey throughout the cosmos.

Playing as Star-Lord, the self-proclaimed leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy, you will blast your way from one explosive situation to another and call-on the unique abilities of each Guardian to save the universe from some seriously overpowered, evil beings. Luckily, you’ve got each other, and sometimes that’s all you need! You got this. Probably…?

Check out this exclusive new cutscene from the game, captured on PC at 4K, with a GeForce RTX 3080:


Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy combines original storytelling and electrifying single-player gameplay with an edgy aesthetic. With the addition of ray tracing and NVIDIA DLSS, PC players will enjoy this stunning universe’s visuals with even higher performance.” - Olivier Proulx, Senior Producer, Eidos-Montréal

If you lack a GeForce RTX PC or laptop, or are away from your gaming system, you can play RTX-enhanced Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy at release via GeForce NOW, our cloud gaming service. GeForce NOW gives your low-end rig the power to stream Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy with RTX ON. Keep your progress as you blast from one device to another, seamlessly, streaming from the cloud. And instantly play your existing PC library from stores like Steam and the Epic Games Store.

For a first look at the GeForce RTX technology coming to Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, stay tuned to GeForce.com.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human Launches December With NVIDIA DLSS and Several Ray-Traced Effects​

Techland’s Dying Light was a hit back in 2015, enthralling players with its fluid parkour movement in a big, zombie-filled open world, all of which was playable with up to four people in co-op. This December, the long-awaited sequel launches, taking players to ‘The City’, one of the last remaining refuges of humanity, over two decades later. You’re an unusually-talented wanderer, who traveled to The City haunted by his own memories. The path and allies you choose will be entirely up to you. These decisions will have game-changing ramifications.

To once again craft an amazing PC edition, following our work on the original game, NVIDIA’s partnered with developer Techland to bring GeForce RTX technology to Dying Light 2 Stay Human.

Get an exclusive first look in the exclusive video below:


“Our partnership with NVIDIA has helped us create an immersive, visceral experience for Dying Light 2 players. Ray tracing enhances the realism of our unforgiving, infected world while NVIDIA DLSS provides a massive performance boost without sacrificing image quality, so you’ll never miss a beat traversing the landscape.” - Tomasz Szałkowski, Rendering Director, Techland

Dying Light 2 Stay Human features a dynamic day-night cycle - using ray tracing, Techland can accurately update the appearance of the world every second, delivering unprecedented image quality. Ray-traced Global Illumination brings incredible bounced lighting to every area of the world, ray-traced shadows with pixel-perfect detail update accordingly, and ray-traced reflections add dynamic detail to suitably-reflective surfaces throughout The City.

You’ll also be able to play Dying Light 2 Stay Human later this year, with RTX ON on GeForce NOW. Both the Steam and Epic Games Store versions will be streaming at launch.

For more on Dying Light 2 Stay Human’s GeForce RTX enhancements, stay locked to GeForce.com in the months to come.

My 3090 is ready!

Every time I see Battlefield 2042 trailer, I just keep thinking this should be called "Chaos, the Game." because that's all I see.... Mayhem and chaos.

Played a bit of BF5 and frankly Raytracing is incredible in it, really adds something. Dying light 2 reminds me of metro, looks really good will for sure be playing it with RT on. Hope the game is better optimized then dying light 1 was when it released, that thing killed gpu's.
