by Liana Ruppert

The team over at CD Projekt RED confirmed that their upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077 would be coming to Google Stadia during Gamescom this year and now the studio is showing off some of that glorious Ray Tracing in action with a few new screenshots. Courtesy of NVIDIA, we’ve got a clearer look at exactly what Ray Tracing means for the open-world, crime-ridden game and how that will impact players.

The latest two screenshots can be seen below in stunning detail from the NVIDIA Twitter page, showing off stunning depth and a gorgeous colour palette: 

Unsure what Ray Tracing even is and what that means for games? Simply put, it’s a specific rendering method meant to deliver the most optimized experience in terms of graphics technology. With today’s technology, Ray Tracing allows for developers to deliver lifelike rendering by use of light and shadows to take realism to unheard of levels in gaming. It requires a lot of fire power but more and more studios are up to the task and as seen above, the payoff is beyond stunning.  

As for the game itself, CD Projekt RED’s brand new IP officially arrives on April 16th, 2020. For more about the game: 

“Cyberpunk 2077 is a narrative-driven, open world RPG set in the most vibrant and dangerous metropolis of the future — Night City. You play as V, a hired gun on the rise, who just got their first serious contract. In a world of cyber-enhanced street warriors, tech-savvy netrunners and corporate life-hackers, today is your first step to becoming an urban legend.”
