Wolfenstein: Youngblood has received RTX and DLSS support on PC


Wolfenstein: Youngblood fans can take advantage of the latest update for Wolfenstein: Youngblood, which enables NVIDIA ray tracing support for PC users as well as the ability for fans without RTX to enjoy some overall improvements to the game.

If you’ve been enjoying MachineGames and Arkane Studios Lyons’ latest endeavor into the Wolfenstein universe, you can enjoy an overall improved experience through Wolfenstein: Youngblood having received its latest update that enables RTX support. The update also boosts performance throughout the game, allowing fans to enjoy higher framerates and more stability of their game.

On the official NVIDIA blog post, Andrew Burnes, explains that in just the past year alone, the first wave of ray-traced games had hit the market, “bringing environments to life with beautiful and realistic reflections, shadows, and lighting.”

Kicking off 2020, Wolfenstein: Youngblood is the first title to join the roster of ray-traced games. The latest update for NVIDIA’s drivers and Wolfenstein: Youngblood, players can see the world come to life in entirely new ways, including reflective surfaces, high-quality detail, alongside high-detail lifelike reflections that bring the game to elevated levels of detail.

Those of you looking to enjoy DLSS, Ray-Traced reflections, and enhanced performance, you will need the latest Windows 10 update, game fully patched (available today), and you will also need to update to the latest Game Ready Driver to ensure that the new settings can be applied. The new mode, DLSS, will allow players to select DLSS mode, which allows fans to balance performance and quality both.


“With DLSS enabled, we recommend the GeForce RTX 2060 for 1920×1080, the GeForce RTX 2070 for 2560×1440, and the GeForce RTX 2080 for 3840×2160, enabling all GeForce RTX gamers to experience Wolfenstein: Youngblood’s graphics and ray tracing at max settings at 60 FPS+ (note, users with 6GB of VRAM may need to lower texture detail by one level). And while we strive to support ray tracing on all GeForce GTX 1060 6GB and higher GPUs, Wolfenstein: Youngblood only supports ray tracing on GeForce RTX GPUs at this time due to several bugs and performance issues,” explains Burnes.

Burnes later explains that DLSS is an AI algorithm that will constantly learn and improve and will allow players to enjoy major boosts in frame rates while keeping their graphic fidelity rather close to what it was before – something rather similar to native resolutions with TAA.

“What this means for gamers is playing at higher output resolutions and quality settings with ray tracing enabled: in Wolfenstein: Youngblood, the GeForce RTX 2060 delivers over 80 FPS at 1920×1080 with RT and DLSS, and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti exceeds 100 FPS at 4K,” continues Burnes.

Those of you wanting to give DLSS and Ray Tracing a shot, remember, you just need to update your GeForce Experience and update Windows 10 to the latest version. Meanwhile, as you update, you can check out our review for Wolfenstein: Youngblood today.
