Embrace the Abyss
Overcome crisis and the unrelenting pressure of a frozen ocean. In the not too
distant future, where habitable places have become scarce, humanity has arrived
on Jupiter’s moon. Europa with its frozen surface is a hostile environment, and
life can only be found in the dark ocean beneath the ice – and the small pockets
of human habitation are not the only form of life to be found there.

Europa’s frozen depths in single player mode and transform the game with fully
integrated mod tools and Steam Workshop. Procedural levels and events ensure no
two games will ever be exactly alike.

the Windows edition of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
will be modern enough to include support for DirectX Raytracing when it is
released on October 25th. This will require one of their RTX graphics cards.
Here are the details:
NVIDIA and Activision today announced that NVIDIA
is the official PC partner for Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare®, the highly
anticipated, all-new title scheduled for release on Oct. 25.
NVIDIA is working side by side with developer Infinity Ward to bring real-time
DirectX Raytracing (DXR), and NVIDIA® Adaptive Shading gaming technologies to
the PC version of the new Modern Warfare.
“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is poised to reset the bar upon release this
October,” said Matt Wuebbling, head of GeForce marketing at NVIDIA. “NVIDIA is
proud to partner closely with this epic development and contribute toward the
creation of this gripping experience. Our teams of engineers have been working
closely with Infinity Ward to use NVIDIA RTX technologies to display the
realistic effects and incredible immersion that Modern Warfare offers.”
The most celebrated series in Call of Duty will make its return in a powerful
experience reimagined from the ground up. Published by Activision and developed
by Infinity Ward, the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will release on
Blizzard Battle.net. Modern Warfare features a unified narrative experience and
progression across an epic, heart-racing, single-player story, an action-packed
multiplayer playground, and new cooperative gameplay.
“Our work with NVIDIA GPUs has helped us throughout the PC development of Modern
Warfare,” said Dave Stohl, co-studio head at Infinity Ward. “We’ve seamlessly
integrated the RTX features like ray tracing and adaptive shading into our
rendering pipeline. It’s been a great addition to our existing technology, and
we look forward to our PC fans experiencing it for themselves very soon.”
DXR brings real-time, cinematic-quality rendering to content creators and game
developers. DXR consists of a highly scalable ray-tracing technology and runs on
NVIDIA Turing, NVIDIA Volta and NVIDIA Pascal architecture GPUs.
NVIDIA Adaptive Shading is a new, advanced shading technique that enables
developers to improve performance and achieve a real-time visual fidelity
previously impossible in games. By adjusting the rate at which portions of the
screen are shaded, the technology reduces the work the GPU has to do, which
boosts performance without denigrating image quality.
