The implementation of Ray Tracing in Wolfenstein: Youngblood was first presented to us just before Gamescom opened to the press back in August, but we all had to wait 5 more months to see the release of the update of the game. It was well worth the wait though, as contrary to the latest Call of Duty title which only featured ray traced shadows, Youngblood utilizes Ray Tracing at its best, which means it includes ray traced reflections too. As a result, every surface can potentially show reflections, from the very clear puddles of water to the windows of the local shops and it looks very realistic. When a mirror is dirty for example, it affects the reflection in a very natural way and the same can be said with other types of materials obviously. We will add a comparison video so you can truly see the visual benefit of the technology, but for now you can check the one we have recorded with performance DLSS. On that subject, DLSS is very impressive in this game, the image quality is excellent and performance mode really helps the framerate when playing with Vsync on for example. Two other modes are also available, one more balanced and one focused on quality and you'd be well advised to resort to DLSS instead of native 4K as Digital Foundry already pointed out.

A day before Gamescom opened its doors to the press, we were invited by Nvidia to play a bunch of game using Ray Tracing technology and we were able to bring back some footage for 3 of them. Inside, you will witness how truly impressive Minecraft can look (no irony here), you'll have a sneak peek at Remedy's use of the tech in Control and finally you'll see Wolfenstein: Youngblood patched with RTX. We also got a chance to play a bit of Watch_Dogs 3, whose reflections were pretty amazing, but capture wasn't allowed for this one.

For the Blazkowiczs, killing nazis is kind of a famliy business therefore MachineGames announced they made a jump in time for the franchise with Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Set in the '80s, it features BJ's twin daughters and if there's twins there's cooperation. It's coming next year.
