Bethesda hasn’t specified why, but Wolfenstein: Youngblood will be released on PC a day ahead of its original July 26 launch date.

The follow-up to 2017’s The New Colossus will let gamers kick Nazi ass once again, but this time as franchise hero BJ Blazkowicz’s twin daughters, Jessica and Sophia, both of whom sport Da’at Yichud Power Suits granting stealth and other nifty powers.

VentureBeat spoke with Executive Producer Jerk Gustafsson and learned that the game will not feature ray tracing when it launches on Thursday, but RTX support is coming eventually.

We’re working together with Nvidia on that, but raytracing won’t be available at launch. The engineers at Nvidia are still hard at work getting that solution to look as good as possible for the game, and the date is still to be determined. But from what we’ve seen so far, it’ll be good.
