These 7 games will look gorgeous in 4K resolution & 60+ FPS Gameplay
Hi there gamers, if you are looking to build a gaming pc in 2020 then wait just a little bit. Nvidia RTX 3000 series is around the corner and you’d love to play these 7 upcoming games on Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti.
I know that the list of games supporting ray tracing is quite short, nearly 20 or so. The main trade-off is the performance hit we get after enabling ray tracing.
Even after playing with DLSS on ‘performance mode’, ray tracing can make these games painfully slow.
Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti has 46 RT cores and while, it felt like it would be sufficient, in practical gameplay, it wasn’t.
This is where Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti comes in, it is rumoured to have 256 RT cores in it & even if it is not true, it will at least have 100+ RT cores.
DLSS 3.0 will also ensure that we’ll get better performance with ray tracing enabled.
So, without further ado, let’s take a look at 7 upcoming games on Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti:
1. Cyberpunk 2077 – 19 Nov 2020
CD Projekt RED has confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will have ray tracing support & native 4K textures with probable support for 8K textures as well.
What better game is there to showcase ray tracing than a city, heavy with neon lights, skyscrapers & bullets.
Currently, Cyberpunk 2077 is said to have DLSS 2.0 support but it might be updated via patches down the road because of the significant improvements that DLSS 3.0 provides.
So, make sure to save up…because Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti will get along with Cyberpunk 2077 like peanut butter & jelly.
2. Outriders – December 2020
Outriders is a third-person Co-op RPG shooter game. Several gamers are suggesting that it is what Destiny & Anthem was supposed to be.
While Destiny was still appreciated, Anthem was largely criticized for its grinding. Anyways, we are keeping high hopes with Outriders. Its trailer suggests a world with super-powers & death lying around in every corner with actual monsters & man-made monsters.
The gaming community is not too excited about it though, because of the overall feel of the game. We won’t know for sure whether it’s a story driven game or another looting-shooting game until it comes out and we get an actual hands-on gameplay.
In any event, the super-powers and the world will look great with ray tracing enabled. Since, it is an open world game, proper light simulation, shadows & reflection will add a sense of realism in the environment.
I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed for it.
3. Watch Dogs Legion – 2020
Ubisoft have a knack of trying and trying until they get it right (but with Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, they might have messed up). May be that or they just want to create a series similar to Grand Theft Auto.
Whatever the reason is, Watch Dogs 1 failed horribly, but Watch Dogs 2 showed immense promise and did deliver to a great extent.
The gameplay was fun & cars didn’t handle like the game was made in 2000.
Watch Dogs: Legion takes a different approach regarding protagonist. This time there is not 1 or 2 or 3 protagonists in the game, but, all the NPCs that you see before you will become the protagonist.
Currently, I don’t know how far you can go with recruiting the NPCs because many may not join your cause. But according to some interviews & videos, you can recruit any NPC that has some problem & when you solve that problem, they’d be willing to join you.
Some NPCs are really likeable. Like the grandma, John Wick look-a-like, etc. Similar to Cyberpunk 2077, Watch 2 Legion boasts a huge world filled with night-life & weather system.
They will look great with ray tracing enabled & so; I sincerely hope that Ubisoft optimize the game really well.
4. Halo Infinite – 2020
Halo Infinite is going to be a first-person shooter for Xbox Series X, Xbox One & PC.
I got goosebumps when I saw the trailer and was pleasantly surprised to see that it was going to be released for PC as well.
Halo has always been exclusive for Xbox console, apart from some versions which were released for PC, like Halo & Halo 2, etc.
Currently, 343 Industries, have not confirmed the support of ray tracing in Halo Infinite. It is only being speculated that it will have ray tracing support.
In the trailer, the environment looked breathtaking and ray tracing will only make it more believable. So, let’s hope that the speculations are true.
5. Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 – 2020
Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 is a sequel to Vampire: TMB that was released in 2004. In this sequel, we are going to portray a human who is classified as a weak vampire.
May be that’s how we’ll be able to increase our abilities and fight with more powerful vampires.
Currently, there is no official release date of Bloodlines 2 except that it will be released sometime in 2020.
Regardless of that, Bloodlines 2 looks absolutely stunning and it is confirmed that it will have ray tracing support from the get go.
It puts us in dark alleys and spooky environments which will become scarier with proper lighting and shadows.
The streets are lit with traditional street-lights which will definitely look amazing with refraction, something that ray tracing does wonderfully.
6. Dying Light 2 – TBD
Dying Light had become my favorite zombie game because of the way it played and the tension it created.
You knew that venturing out at night would mean a certain death or running the hell away at the first sight of a Volatile, but you’d do it anyway because of the perks you get in the form of experience points.
The leveling system was so great and powers were so usable that I took many risks and ran as fast as I could when a Volatile would see me.
I was really pumped up to see the trailer and gameplay of Dying Light 2. The environment and branched storyline felt truly immersive.
You might have heard that there is a tension brewing up within Dying Light 2 development team about the narrative experience.
Let’s hope that it gets resolved soon and we get to know the release date of dying light 2.
As for ray tracing support, it has been confirmed that dying light 2 will have ray tracing.
7. Far Cry 6 – 18 Feb 2021
I didn’t care much about Far Cry after Far Cry 3. Pagan Min couldn’t surpass Vaas in my opinion. The gameplay had become increasing similar and repetitive.
We have recently seen Far Cry 6 trailer and I sincerely hope that they have evolved the gameplay.
Since, we are going up against another dictator this time, we can only wait to see how they handle the storyline.
It already feels that we will have to work with resistance, free people and increase our influence to the point where the dictator becomes aware of us & may be, then a mission to confront him & kill him.
We don’t know if Far Cry 6 will support ray tracing or not, but Ubisoft have always put a lot of thought in Far Cry’s environment. Ray tracing will be able to make it feel more alive, tense & engaging.
Nvidia has also announced some new games with ray tracing support.
- Project X
- Xuan-Yuan Sword VII
But the 7 mentioned in this article are the most anticipated ones. Especially when you consider upgrading your PC because of them.
