What can ray tracing do for a classic? You can get that answer now by grabbing Quake II RTX from Steam (or directly from NVIDIA’s website). Those who own the original get the full game (campaign, online co-op, and online PvP multiplayer), while everyone else is free to enjoy the first three campaign levels.

Each single-player and multiplayer map has been enhanced with path-tracing, a super high-fidelity form of ray tracing. This enables lifelike lighting, reflections, shadows, and much much more, exemplifying the power of ray tracing, and demonstrating why AAA developers are working with us to enhance their blockbusters with the tech.
