Counterplay Games has just announced that a new PC patch is available for Godfall that adds support for Ray Tracing effects. However, and contrary to what Codemasters did with Dirt 5, Godfall will only support Ray Tracing on AMD GPUs right now. Counterplay will add support for NVIDIA GPUs in a future update.
As Counterplay Games stated:
“This quick update, 2.0.95 is just for PC and enables the ability for players to play Godfall with ray tracing on while using applicable AMD GPUs. Note: players will need to have the latest AMD GPU drivers to enable this. Ray tracing using NVIDIA GPUs will come with a future update.”
This comes as a huge surprise. Let’s not forget that AMD had previously criticized NVIDIA for using proprietary RT methods in some games. And even though Godfall will support RT via DXR, the team is making these RT effects exclusive to AMD’s GPUs (at least for now).
Counterplay Games has not provided an explanation as to why it does not currently support NVIDIA GPUs. Also, and since this is an AMD-sponsored game, we can assume that there won’t be support for DLSS 2.0.
