NVIDIA & Alan Wake 2 Gamescom 2023 Wrap-Up
[Nvidia DLSS 3.5, GeForce NOW, and Custom Giveaway]

NVIDIA was back at Gamescom this year with a series of brand-new reveals, many of them with Alan Wake 2 in the spotlight! 


We have a lot to cover in this post, from how new NVIDIA tools can enhance your return to Bright Falls, to additions to their ever-expanding GeForce NOW catalogue and a special GPU giveaway, so let's get to it!

Check out our list below: 
NVIDIA DLSS 3.5 & NVIDIA Reflex

Nvidia has revealed that Alan Wake 2 will launch with support for the NVIDIA DLSS 3.5, a new version of their GPU tool that enhances ray tracing abilities by using Ray Reconstruction.

Alongside the reveal, we also heard from a number of developers, including Tatu Aalto (Lead Graphics Programmer at Remedy), who said that “the new Ray Reconstruction feature in DLSS 3.5 renders our fully ray-traced world more beautifully than ever before, bringing you deeper into the story of Alan Wake 2


Our tweed-wearing writer won't be alone either. Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty, Portal with RTX, Ominiverse Platform, Chaos Vantage and DS Render will also be adding support for the DLSS 3.5 this autumn.

In short, and the way that my brain could understand it, new tech makes shadows, reflections and light prettier. Plus, if you have any RTX graphics card, you can run this. If you want to delve deeper into the tech news, you can read more about the NVIDIA DLSS 3.5, HERE

GamesRadar+ also has a comprehensive article on the comparison too, HERE









GeForce NOW Catalogue

On August 24th, Remedy and NVIDIA announced that Alan Wake 2 will be added to the GeForce NOW catalogue, a cloud gaming system with over 1500 titles already available to play. The game will be ready to play from launch day on October 27th. 

The service is a pretty impressive system, allowing gamers who don't have the technology to run the games directly to a device of their choice and experience the latest adventures. It might also be a good option for virtual photographers who want to delve into gorgeous scenery but can't afford or find the right set-up.
