Battlefield 2042 is currently the main talk when it comes to upcoming AAA FPS releases, along with the upcoming Call of Duty game, Vanguard. Anyway, Battlefield 2042 just got its new tech trailer published, and it shows the NVIDIA RTX features such as Ray Tracing and DLSS being in motion in the game. For those of you who are unaware, these are Nvidia RTX-exclusive features. And, thus you would need an NVIDIA RTX series card to take advantage of these features. Here is the trailer, check it out:

Battlefield 2042 will not only be having support for DLSS AI Acceleration, and Ray Tracing, but also has support for Nvidia Reflex. Nowadays, almost every AAA release comes with these NVIDIA RTX-exclusive visual enhancements. Be it either directly with the release, or added later with an update/patch. Anyway, it seems that Battlefield 2042 belongs to the first category, and thus will be having support for these features with its release which is on November 19, 2021.

These features come in really handy actually. For example, the DLSS AI Acceleration is perfect to ensure that frame rates stay stable at all times. It uses AI to downscale, and thus improve framerates. However, with the proper optimization and implementation, it causes a negligible drop in visual fidelity. So, what it results in is better, and stable frame rates without any loss in visual quality. And, coming to Ray Tracing, that is all about realistic, and better reflections and shadows. Ray Tracing is quite a big burden on graphic cards, and on not so powerful graphic cards, it can severely affect the gaming experience. However, thanks to the DLSS, that drop in performance is much less obvious. And, NVIDIA Reflex is all about reduced latency, this is something the gaming enthusiasts will definitely like as it can significantly improve their performance.

Battlefield 2042 is set to release on October 19, 2021. However, the Early Access period starts a week before, on October 12, 2021.
