Battlefield 5 is one of the first games that will feature support for real-time ray tracing effects via NVIDIA’s RTX technology. However, it appears that PC gamers will have to wait a little longer as DICE’s title will not support these effects at launch.
In case you weren’t aware of, Battlefield 5 has been unlocked for those with Origin Access subscription and there is currently no option to enable the real-time ray tracing RTX effects.
There is currently no ETA on when a patch will enable these effects. We also don’t know if a day-1 patch will enable them (however, and since this Early Access is basically identical to the build that gamers will be playing in a couple of days, we can safely assume that there won’t be one for RTX).
What’s also really funny here is that on November 20th it will be two whole months since the official release of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080Ti , and we still don’t have a single game support RTX or DLSS.
We don’t know whether the lack of ray tracing effects in any game has anything to do with the October 2018 update for Windows 10 that was pulled. Still, it will be interesting to see whether this ridiculous wait will be worth it!
