In a partnership between Nvidia, EA and DICE, Battlefield 2042 will feature Nvidia DLSS, Nvidia Reflex and Ray Tracing support. As the video demonstrates, there will be ray-traced ambient occlusion along with Nvidia DLSS. The latter means improved performance without a loss of image quality. Finally, Nvidia Reflex means that system latency will be optimised which should mean better shot accuracy – providing you’re a good shot, anyhow. At least you won’t be able to blame the hardware for any missed hits.
Effectively, the thinking is that PC gamers will get the best out of Battlefield 2042 providing they have a GeForce RTX-based graphics card. That will lead to higher detail levels and uncapped frame rates, pleasing many players.
Recent videos have shown off three new multiplayer maps in the game. It has also recently been announced that Battlefield 2042 will have the series’ first non-binary character, Sundance.
In even more Battlefield 2042 news, aim assist will be made stronger at launch which could prove divisive.
Battlefield 2042 will launch on November 19 with its early access period commencing November 12.
