NVIDIA and CD PROJEKT RED today announced that NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ is an official technology partner for Cyberpunk 2077 and that the companies are working together to bring real-time ray tracing to the game.
Cyberpunk 2077 won over 100 awards at E3 2018 and Gamespot calls it “one of the most anticipated games of the decade.” The game is the next project from CD PROJEKT RED, makers of the highly acclaimed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which has won numerous “Game of the Year” awards. NVIDIA and CD PROJEKT RED have a long history of technology collaboration that spans more than a decade.
“Cyberpunk 2077 is an incredibly ambitious game, mixing first-person perspective and deep role-playing, while also creating an intricate and immersive world in which to tell its story,” said Matt Wuebbling, head of GeForce marketing at NVIDIA. “We think the world of Cyberpunk will greatly benefit from the realistic lighting that ray tracing delivers.”
Ray tracing is the advanced graphics technique used to give movies their ultra-realistic visual effects. NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs contain specialized processor cores designed specifically to accelerate ray tracing so the visual effects in games can be rendered in real time.
“Ray tracing allows us to realistically portray how light behaves in a crowded urban environment,” says Adam Badowski, head of Studio at CD PROJEKT RED. “Thanks to this technology, we can add another layer of depth and verticality to the already impressive megacity the game takes place in.”
Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure story set in Night City, a megalopolis obsessed with power, glamour and body modification. You play as V, a mercenary outlaw going after a one-of-a-kind implant that is the key to immortality. You can customize your character’s cyberware, skillset and playstyle, and explore a vast city where the choices you make shape the story and the world around you.
E3 attendees will get a firsthand look at Cyberpunk 2077 at booth 1023 in the South Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center. More details, as well as exclusive 4K screenshots featuring real-time ray tracing on PC, are available at www.nvidia.com.
Doom Eternal was announced at E3 this year and finally, during Quake Con we got a glimpse of the game. The DoomGuy is back and he’s angrier than ever before. Now that the demons have invaded Earth, Doom Guy’s rage and hatred for the demons has grown even more. With an upgraded arsenal, he now he new ways of Ripping and Tearing demons and I must say, it left every Doom fan with a gigantic grin on their face.
Doom Eternal features quite a huge variety of settings as shown from the gameplay including a version of Earth that has been invaded by Demons and Phobos, the moon of Mars. Phobos alos has actual human beings who are awestruck and frozen in fear as they see the Doom Slayer walk amidst them. The trailer showcases a new grappling hook feature that is attached to the Super Shotgun allowing you to grapple yourself to enemies before shooting them in the face along with the ability to Dash. These two new mechanics will really help with the verticality of the game which was the something the previous game lacked as well as quick dodges. There’s also an invasion system which is an optional feature where actual players can invade your session as Remnants. The trailer ends as an Arch-Vile appears and starts to channel his Hellfire attack as the Doom Slayer seems to whip out a sword that resembles to be The Crucible.
No release date was announced but we can expect the game to maybe come out during Fall of next year. The game will release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.

Die Meister, Die Besten, Les grandes équipes,The champions. *Champions League Theme*
I can’t speak for the rest of you but when the trailer kicked off, I certainly had goosebumps. We’ve waited for this for years now. After a 10 year wait, EA has officially acquired the official license for UEFA Champions League from it’s age old competitors Konami (PES).
Right into action, Ronaldo catches a hold of the ball & unleashes his magic on the pitch, followed by Kevin De Bruyne, Neymar & many others, we see a lot of fancy goals & shimmies. “Champions Rise, Be A Champion”
Active Touch System – Giving you much more control on the ball & options for various exits to beat the defender inducing unpredictability which actually contributes to having a much more realistic gameplay
New tactics & mentalities from the touch of a button
NO PARK THE BUSSSSSSSSSSS
Timed Finishing – Goodbye to spamming the shoot button, won’t work this year. Thank you EA!
Watch the trailer below to catch a glimpse to what the game offers, we’ll update you as we find out new features.
A combination of a RPG, first person shooter and an Open world game. CD Projekt Red‘s Cyberpunk 2077 can be described as a “narrative-driven First Person RPG”. It takes place in an alternate-reality version of Northern California, in a sprawling mega-city filled with augmented humans. You can choose your character’s gender, pick a look, and assign skill points to better suit your playstyle. But Cyberpunk 2077 also goes a step further, and lets you craft your own simple backstory. You can choose from childhood events that shaped your character, and these in turn will influence how people perceive you in the game. You can also upgrade your skills and physical stats as you go on with your storyline.
World of CyberPunk 2077
Particularly impressive were the citizens, who all moved about naturally, as if they had their own lives going on. CD Projekt Red says that each non-playable character has their own day / night cycle, so that they behave differently depending on the time of day. They can also behave differently depending on what you do in the game.
Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to the PC, PS4, and Xbox One, though there’s no word on a release date yet.
Shadow of Tomb Raider
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is an upcoming action-adventure video game developed by Eidos Montréal in conjunction with Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix. It is the third entry of the rebooted Tomb Raider series and a sequel to 2015’s Rise of the Tomb Raider.
The story takes place after the events of Rise of the Tomb Raider. The protagonist Lara Croft is an archaeologist on an expedition to Latin America looking for a Mayan relic which has a connection to her late father. Trinity, a paramilitary organization dedicated to investigating the supernatural, seek the relic to reshape the world. During the expedition Lara sets off a Mayan apocalypse and she attempts to save the world. There are numerous adjustments made to gameplay, which is otherwise identical to Rise. The controls for swimming have been completely revised, as Lara is now able to hold her breath underwater for a longer period of time due to the introduction of air pockets. She also gains the ability to rappel down a cliff using a rope. Stealth becomes an important part of the game, with Lara being able to disengage from combat when she escapes from enemies’ line of sight. Like its predecessors, the game allows players to hunt wild animals, craft materials using the resources collected, solve puzzles and explore optional tombs. Shadow of Tomb Raider is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox one and PC on 14th September 2018.
An eye catching 3-D snippet at the kick off of the EA Play 2018 conference was of Bioware & EA’s collaborated development “Anthem”, a Sci-Fi action role playing game which already left a pleasing impression back in E3 2017 with its superbly sophisticated yet gorgeous environment. The game focuses on the storyline of how a natural phenomenon threatens to wipe out the entire mankind and how a faction by the name of “Freelancers” struggle from keeping things from going south. The game is set to release in February 2019 which seems to be a decade long wait but like the saying goes, ‘patience always lead to sweeter results’.
It might be true that ‘Marvel Avengers: Infinity War’ was “the most ambitious crossover”, but “Jump Force”, a revelation at the Microsoft E3 2018, surely knocked the socks off for Marvel. A new generation all-star brawler developed by Bandai Namco, brings the major characters from the most beloved works in the Anime & Manga world in an arena, which is, prima facie, based in the United States. A confirmed release date hasn’t been announced yet but it’s for sure that the Manga & Anime fanatics will have to wait till the next year.
Forza Horizon 4
Developer Playground Games have always impressed the racing video games fanatics with each of their Forza’s franchise till date and the developers, now acquired by Microsoft, have hit the right note this time as well with their upcoming release “Forza Horizon 4” According to GameSpot, “During a meeting at E3 2018 this week, Playground’s Ben Penrose spoke about how Forza Horizon 4 offers the “biggest paradigm shift” since the Forza Horizon series began back in 2012.” ‘Seasons’, the new gameplay mode offered in Forza Horizon 4, will be this franchise’s ace card apart from the beautifully rendered seasons in Britain. Forza 4 is expected to roll out this fall.
