Take A Look At Ray Tracing Technology In Shadow Of The Tomb Raider | Resident Entertainment
Connect with us

Today at Gamescom there was some news for the upcoming Shadow Of The Tomb Raider game from Square Enix. The new game is being developed on the NVIDIA RTX platform and will be one of the first games this year to use a new feature known as real-time tracing for its rendering. Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of NVIDIA said “An iconic pop culture figure like Lara Croft deserves the cinematic treatment that ray tracing can deliver,”

A video was released in relation to the announcement which shows off some of the new graphical capabilities which Shadow Of The Tomb Raider is utilising.

The real-time tracing technology is a rendering technique available for the PC version of the game which will be available on Steam. Square Enix says “Long considered the definitive solution for realistic and lifelike lighting, reflections, and shadows, ray tracing offers a level of realism far beyond what is possible using traditional rendering techniques. Ray tracing has been used for years to pre-render life-like worlds in movies. Until now, it has been too demanding to be practical for real-time, interactive gaming, which requires fast frame rates and low latency.”

The game will utilise the power of the new graphics card line from NVIDIA to run these graphics as they are quite demanding. It’s recommended for those who have the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, 2080, and 2070.

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider will release on September 14 2018. You can find copies of the game on Amazon Au right here.

Koei Tecmo is developing Romance Of The Three kingdoms XIV for PS4

Romance Of The Three kingdoms XIV is coming to the ps4 with the game currently being developed by Koei Tecmo. It is expected that it will be released in early 2020. The new strategy game dives deep into China’s lore to rewrite the history of the three Kingdoms.

What is Romance Of The Three Kingdoms XIV?

The latest iteration of the classic tactical series is once again set during the fall of the Han Dynasty in ancient China; where battles take place in a boundary-free scramble for land. The game’s map showcases the territory captured and the thrill of expansion using a simplified colour system – paying homage to the original Romance of The Three Kingdoms XIV, released on PC back in 1985. Everything from war to diplomatic affairs will be geared toward managing and gathering land as players attempt to spread their strategies at will across the vast China map.

In addition, RTK14 will adopt the ruler-based system from RTK9 and RTK11 in order to help return classic gameplay to the series. This means that all actions – from domestic, to political, to battle – will now take place on a single map. Greater individuality among characters will also be on display; with officers from the Three Kingdoms, like Liu Bei and Guan Yu, asserting themselves at various situations in order to fully immerse players into the game’s rich history. But that’s not all, as a new Evolved Artificial Intelligence system is also being implemented to challenge players across repeated playthroughs. With organizations now determined through each ruler’s ideals, different game experiences are now possible via different rulers. Even within the same faction; different policies now bring with them different strategies for expansion, making the wise use of various officers a cornerstone of advanced gameplay.
