Portal is getting a ray tracing upgrade this fall

outlet Fans will be able to see Aperture Science test rooms in a whole new light this fall, when Nvidia releases Gateway with RTXan updated version of the classic first-person platformer that brings ray tracing graphics to the game.

Announced by Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang during his Nvidia GTC keynote on Tuesday, Gateway with RTX “Reimagines classic game graphics with full ray tracing and all-new art reminiscent of the original,” Nvidia said in a blog post. As for what exactly “full ray tracing” means, Nvidia said the game will use ray tracing for every light and shadows it casts, as well as indirect lighting and global lighting; scattering of light by volumetric effects such as fog and smoke; and reflections based on materials such as metal surfaces. More details are available in the blog post.

Gateway with RTX It will be available as free downloadable content to people who already own the original outletNvidia announced. Presumably, this refers only to those who have a copy on Steam; The Nvidia blog post links to the Steam listing for Gateway with RTX. Nvidia refers to it as a modification of the original game; It is not clear whether it is possible to buy Gateway with RTX Separately, without owning a copy of outlet. It’s worth noting that although the name of the add-on contains “RTX” — a term Nvidia uses to market graphics cards that support ray tracing and associated technologies — the Steam page says so Gateway with RTX It will be “compatible with all GPUs capable of ray tracing”.

Nvidia said its Lightspeed Studios team made Gateway with RTX By building on its experience in adding ray tracing to earthquake 2 And the Maine Craft. But Lightspeed has evolved Gateway with RTX With a new tool, Nvidia RTX Remix, Nvidia will release it for free to the public. Nvidia RTX Remix described it as a “editing platform” that can “add ray tracing with just a few clicks, and give modifiers the tools to make ambitious reworks, even for previously uneditable games.”

Lightspeed has done extensive work reimagining it outlet With ray tracing, including the effort of adding texture to the walls so that the light interacts with them more. “For surfaces, if they were flat, as was the case in most games in 2007, the light wouldn’t realistically interact,” Nvidia said. ‘In the process of remaking all of outletSurface materials, we introduced details, such as bumps, slots, and rivets, allowing light to precisely fall through, echoing light, creating new shadows, and generating subtle reflections. “

Gateway with RTX It was designed in part as a showcase for the new GeForce RTX 40-series graphics cards that Nvidia also announced on Tuesday. As such, it will launch with DLSS 3 support, the latest version of Nvidia’s proprietary image reconstruction technology, which requires the aforementioned GPUs to work. Gateway with RTX It’s due for release in November – 15 years after the original game came out, and in the same month as the RTX 4080.
