Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Launching With NVIDIA DLSS and Ray TracingToday, 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.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human Launches December With NVIDIA DLSS and Several Ray-Traced EffectsTechland’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.

“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.
