Cyberpunk 2077 Ray Tracing Overdrive Mode Arrives April 11

The new Ray Tracing Overdrive mode in Cyberpunk 2077 will enhance the title’s in-game graphics. 

Though the gaming community still seems somewhat split on the enhancements of Ray Tracing technology, today Nvidia revealed a new update coming to Cyberpunk 2077 that will take the title’s in-game graphics to the next level. 

Scheduled to release on April 11, 2023, this new update will address the game’s shadows, reflections, and lighting. While some pretty hefty hardware will be required to utilize the technology to its full capability, the visuals released in the mode’s trailer expose players to the new and enhanced graphics from Cyberpunk 2077. 

The following trailer for the new mode was played on an RTX 4090 in 4K with DLSS 3 enabled. 

The highly-acclaimed game, Cyberpunk 2077 also has other media tie-ins, including a popular Netflix show, books, and other merchandise. This new enhancement to the game will help new and old players further immerse themselves in Night City. 

Ray tracing is a technique used in computer graphics to create realistic lighting and shadows in a 3D scene.
