Amassing over 100 billion views on YouTube in 2019 and being crowned the world’s bestselling game, it’s no surprise Minecraft would receive the RTX treatment and in a big way. Come April 17th, the free patch available to all Windows 10, Minecraft: Bedrock Edition players, as long as you own a compatible GPU such as a GeForce RTX 2060. This will allow you to explore the world of Minecraft like never before RTX Worlds, fully path-traced rendering, physically-based materials and NVIDIA DLSS 2.0 support — Minecraft has never looked so good!
Minecraft With RTX Gets DLSS 2.0
Minecraft players will get to experience the RTX Beta with NVIDIA DLSS 2.0 support. A game changing rendering technique that accelerates performance via AI-based super resolution. This process renders fewer pixels and then uses AI to construct sharp, higher resolution images that run at much faster frame rates.
“Powered by dedicated AI processors on GeForce RTX GPUs called Tensor Cores, DLSS 2.0 is a new and improved deep learning neural network that boosts frame rates while generating beautiful, crisp game images. It gives gamers the performance headroom to maximize ray tracing settings and increase output resolutions.” – NVIDIA
New Minecraft RTX Worlds
The Minecraft Marketplace will host 6 new ray traced worlds, showcasing the power of RTX. Built by top Minecraft creators Razzleberries, GeminiTay, Dr_Bond, Blockworks, Elysium Fire and PearlescentMoon an Australian Content Creator. All 6 playable worlds in the Minecraft RTX Beta will for free or charge.
“Designing a whole adventure experience from the ground up with my team has to be the most satisfying thing ever. What made ray tracing so cool was being able to properly configure materials to interact with lighting in a realistic way that helps bring out the expectations of how the material would really look. Ray tracing will allow map makers and builders to highlight points of interest in their maps, using light to draw the eye.” – RazzleberryFox, CEO of Razzleberries (Temples & Totems)
Tools to build your own RTX world!
Along side the new worlds, there will be a host of guides to build your very own slice of RTX heaven. Including an RTX texture showcase from Razzleberries, HD resource packs, physically based materials and a sneaky unofficial Minecraft java to bedrock conversion guide.
