NVIDIA will release Portal RTX and RTX Remix Mod Tools in November

At GTC 2022, NVIDIA announced an RTX Mod for Valve’s classic puzzle game, Portal. Portal RTX promises to feature full ray tracing effects, and will support DLSS 3.0. Furthermore, NVIDIA revealed the RTX Remix Modding Tools which modders can use in order to enhance older games with full ray tracing effects.

Needless to say that the RTX Remix Modding Tools is something that will benefit A LOT of games. Thanks to these tools, we can finally get full ray tracing effects in classic games like Doom 3, Half-Life, Unreal, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and more.

RTX Remix

Before jumping to conclusions, the RTX Remix Modding Tools are not similar to the Reshade Ray Tracing effects that numerous PC gamers have been using. We are talking here about full and proper ray tracing effects.

As NVIDIA CEO’s Jensen Huang explained, modders will have to capture a game into a USD. Then, you can use the modding tools in order to create a Ray Tracing Mod, and export the RTX renderer. RTX Remix also uses AI techniques in order to overhaul/upscale all of the textures, as well as an AI model to convert materials to have physically accurate properties.

We really can’t wait to see what modders will be able to achieve with RTX Remix. Essentially, we’ll be getting free full Ray Tracing remasters of our favorite games, and that definitely has me excited!
