NVIDIA RTX Remaster Program to Bring Some of The Greatest Titles Into The Ray Tracing Era

Quake 2 RTX seems to have been just the start for NVIDIA as the company has an RTX Remaster program in the works that will bring some of the greatest titles of the past decades into the age of Ray Tracing. The NVIDIA RTX Remaster program is headed by NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios and plans to enable Ray Tracing to classic titles via support for the GeForce RTX range of graphics cards.

GeForce RTX graphics cards are quite expensive still, but this NVIDIA RTX Remaster program sounds great for those who want to experience the classics with some upgraded graphics. From the work done on Quake 2 RTX (view the launch trailer at the bottom of this article) it is definitely something to get excited about.

This news comes from a new job listing from NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios, stating that:

We’re cherry-picking some of the greatest titles from the past decades and bringing them into the Ray Tracing age, giving them state-of-the-art visuals while keeping the gameplay that made them great. The NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios team is picking up the challenge starting with a title that you know and love but we can’t talk about here!

Further, Polygon reports that NVIDIA is first working on “a title that you know and love” and it is up to gamers to guess what that could be.

It these NVIDIA RTX Remasters are the same as Quake 2 RTX, they would be free for anyone who owns the original games. Quake 2 RTX also has the first three levels for free for anyone with a GeForce RTX to try.
