NVIDIA Announces Minecraft Ray Tracing for Windows


Quote:
A new engine and a new way to experience Minecraft!

Minecraft is on so many platforms, and the great thing about that is that it opens up so many fun possibilities about how we can change the experience for each one. We added touch controls when we developed the mobile version, put you ​inside ​Minecraft on Gear VR, and enabled multiplayer across consoles and devices with our Better Together update!

Today we’re announcing two new ways we’re taking advantage of existing and updating hardware. One, we’re expanding the scope of Minecraft on bedrock platforms with our new engine, ​Render Dragon. ​Second, we’re pushing the graphical possibilities of the game by ​partnering with NVIDIA to bring real-time ray tracing to Minecraft. ​Prepare your eyes!

We couldn’t be more excited to take advantage of the new ray tracing technology from NVIDIA. It’ll be playable on Windows 10 with devices that are capable of DirectX R, such as with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPU (and we plan to expand it to future platforms that support DirectX R raytracing).

With the capabilities of this tech, you’ll be able to experience your Minecraft worlds with realistic lighting, vibrant colors, , realistic water that reflects and refracts naturally, and emissive textures that light up. What does ‘emissive’ mean? It means you’re about to see Minecraft like you’ve never seen it before!

So damn stupid. The game was made to look like blocky pixelated crap on purpose.

Minecraft wasn't a Davinci. It was a McDonald's Cheeseburger.

It literally changed the world in it's own little way. Is that to say that there's absolutely nothing that could make it better? Of course not.

The blocks are there. The textures are there. The scope is there.

Those are the things that can't change.

It's like when they added snow. That's not a huge block!

This makes the game better for damn near everybody because A) you can still play it old style pretty easy and B) the people who don't care about ray tracing can't do it anyways.

Agreed. Also both the original and ray traced graphics are beautiful in their own way. I've always thought MC had some of the best vista's in gaming.
