Quake II RTX Lightspeed Studios / Nvidia 2019

This free add-on for Quake II is fully ray-traced and includes the 3 levels from the original shareware distribution as freely playable. Shortly after landing on an alien surface, you learn that hundreds of your men have been reduced to just a few. Now you must fight your way through heavily fortified military installations, lower the city's defenses and shut down the enemy's war machine. Only then will the fate of humanity be known. This builds on the work of Christoph Schied and the team at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, who added ray tracing to Quake II to create Q2VKPT (in turn building upon the Q2PRO code base). NVIDIA has introduced new path-traced visual effects, has improved texturing, and has made dozens of other changes and improvements, resulting in an experience that rivals games created today, and pushes your RTX hardware to the limit. Screen space reflections on traditional card are drawn as flat planes, the same way it draws everything else. In ray traces instead, just as optics are done in the real world, the reflections are actually projected from the ray tracer into the screen space in real time. The reflections actually show the reflected lighting space, particles, fog, etc., and automatically accounts for the parallax between the reflected object and the camera perspective of the viewer. It's also quite cpu intensive and can only be done on newer graphics cards.
