Nvidia announced 13 new titles that will be joining its lineup of RTX games at Gamescom 2021 on Tuesday. Some of the biggest games of the year are launching with support for features like real-time ray tracing and Nvidia Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS), including Battlefield 2042, Dying Light 2, and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Guardians of the Galaxy is set to launch with support for ray tracing and DLSS on October 26. The last game from developer Eidos-Montréal, Marvel’s Avengers, received a DLSS patch earlier this year, but it hasn’t gotten the

Nvidia also announced some preparations ahead of the Steam Deck‘s launch later this year. Nvidia recently launched support for DLSS in Proton, which is a compatibility layer Nvidia uses for Linux.
