NVIDIA announced that the PC version of Battlefield 2042 would lead to improvements from the graphics card manufacturer, including ray tracing, NVIDIA DLSS and NVIDIA Reflex.
Radiation tracking is probably the most recognizable marker of the current leap to the next gene, a way to reproduce light and image reflection in a more realistic way. Battlefield 2042 adds Ray-Traced Ambient Occlusion, a way to accurately reproduce shadows where light is blocked. Players must use a ray-tracing-compatible graphics card to get the full effect.
PC players will also benefit from NVIDIA DLSS, which provides significantly faster performance. And combined with NVIDIA Reflex, which reduces system latency, the PC version of Battlefield 2042 promises to be the most responsive, smoothest version.
The latest trailer for Battlefield 2042 is specifically with RTX turned on, so you can appreciate the improvements a fully equipped PC can bring to the game. It is also a good showcase for the full extent of the titular battlefields.
Battlefield 2042 represents a major effort on the part of publisher EA and developer DICE, as the game has no single-player campaign, but instead relies on evolving multiplayer storytelling to carry the game. However, it has not been without bumps along the way as it has been delayed a bit from its original release date. Still, it looks like the release is imminent for this year and you can still pre-order the game now.
Battlefield 2042 will be released on November 19 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S.
