Nacon has confirmed that it is collaborating with NVIDIA to bring some of green team’s premiere technologies to two of its upcoming games, Steelrising and The Lord of the Rings: Gollum.

Both of these games will feature support for NVIDIA DLSS, green team’s deep learning super sampling technology, as well as ray tracing in the form of ray-traced lighting and shadows for improved lighting effects.

Steelrising is an “alternative version of history after the Storming of the Bastille” where players take on the role of Aegeis, an automaton bodyguard of Marie Antoinette, the last Queen of France. The game is developed by Spiders and will be released on September 8 for the PC, PS4, and Xbox Series X|S platforms.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is described as a story-driven action adventure that stars Gollum, one of the more popular creatures that was originally introduced in J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth novels, including The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The game is developed by Daedalic Entertainment and will be released this year for PC, PlayStation consoles, and the Nintendo Switch.

NVIDIA has shared an article about how 200 games and apps now feature DLSS. Included are two videos that showcase what the ray tracing might look like in Nacon’s Steelrising and The Lord of the Rings: Gollum titles.

NVIDIA’s article can also confirm DLSS support for a number of other upcoming games, including Loopmancer, Hell Pie, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, and A Plague Tale: Requiem.

Steelrising depicts an alternative version of history after the Storming of the Bastille. The player embodies Aegis, Marie-Antoinette’s automaton bodyguard, as she fights through Paris in an alternate history where machines are suppressing the French Revolution. Spiders’ combat-focused game is planned for release on 8 September on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a story-driven action adventure. Take on a perilous journey as Gollum, chasing the only thing that is precious to him. Climb, leap and sneak your way past dangers or into advantageous spots. Gollum is skillful and sly, but also torn by his split personality. It is up to you to decide whether the darker side of Gollum takes over or if there is a spark of reason left in what once was Sméagol.
