It’s a huge week for new game releases, as Battlefield 2042 and GTA Trilogy both make their debut on consoles and PC.
Grand Theft Auto Trilogy Definitive Edition launches on November 11, while Battlefield 2042 is available in early access for Gold and Ultimate Edition customers.
And the good news doesn’t end there, as both games get a big boost on PC.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy launches with DLSS support on PC, while Battlefield 2042 launches with DLSS, NVIDIA Reflex and ray tracing.
NVIDIA explains more: “Early Access for Battlefield 2042 begins tomorrow, and from day one the new multiplayer first-person shooter supports NVIDIA DLSS, Ray-Traced Ambient Occlusion, and NVIDIA Reflex.
“DLSS delivers a 2X performance gain at 4K, and system latency is reduced by up to 28% with NVIDIA Reflex.”
Grand Theft Auto Trilogy isn’t quite as flashy, but it does get a major performance boost with DLSS.
In fact, according to NVIDIA, players with a GeForce RTX graphics card can expect a performance boost of up to 85%.
“Also out today is Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, and if you have a GeForce RTX graphics card, desktop or laptop, you can enable NVIDIA DLSS to accelerate performance by up to 85%,” NVIDIA continues.
And it’s not just GTA and Battlefield getting a boost, as Bright Memory: Infinite launches with some additional firepower for PC users.
“Bright Memory was a well-received short slice of action game excitement, demonstrating how a lone developer could make a polished, high-fidelity game using Unreal Engine 4’s tools.
“Today the much-anticipated sequel, Bright Memory: Infinite launches. On PC, the action game is enhanced with ray-traced shadows, reflections, caustics and global illumination, along with performance-accelerating NVIDIA DLSS, and system latency is reduced by up to 49% with NVIDIA Reflex.”
Elsewhere, NVIDIA has announced its latest batch of GeForce NOW games, as GFN Thursday makes a return.
GeForce NOW is a streaming service that lets subscribers access and play their PC libraries on a wide selection of devices. This includes phones, tablets and select browsers, as well as PC, Mac and Android TV.
New games are added each week, including brand new releases from Steam, GOG and Epic Games, as well as classic titles from various platforms.
The advantage is that you don’t have to invest in a top-of-the-range PC to play some of the more demanding games.
New games joining the service include the aforementioned Bright Memory: Infinite, as well as Epic Chef, Jurassic World Evolution 2, MapleStory, Severed Steel and Tale of Immortal.
