Here are all the confirmed ray tracing and DLSS games so far

Get your RTX and RDNA 2 graphics cards at the ready

The number of games that support ray tracing and Nvidia's DLSS tech is getting bigger all the time, with Red Dead Redemption 2 and its online counterpart Red Dead Online being some of the latest blockbusters to join the ranks. Ray tracing is the big new graphics tech being added to PC games this year, and it's probably one of the biggest reasons why you'd want to upgrade to one of today's best graphics cards. That's why we've put together this list of all the confirmed ray tracing games you can play on PC right now, as well which ones support Nvidia's performance-boosting DLSS tech as well.

Previously, you needed an Nvidia RTX card to take advantage of games with ray tracing support, but now that AMD's Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards have arrived, you can take advantage of these realistic reflections and lighting effects on both Nvidia RTX cards and any AMD Radeon RX 6000 GPU. What's more, Intel's upcoming Xe graphics cards are also set to support ray tracing when they eventually arrive later this year, giving you even more choice when it comes to buying a ray tracing-capable GPU.

Right now, the number of ray tracing games you can actually play on PC is still on the slim side, but it's gradually getting larger. Indeed, now that the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 have both launched, it's only a matter of time before this list starts getting even bigger. Both of these next-gen consoles have built-in ray tracing support, which will hopefully mean that more developers will start adding ray tracing to their games as a matter of course. For now, though, these are all the ray tracing games on PC you can play right now.

Ray tracing games you can play right now:

  • Amid Evil
  • Battlefield V
  • Bright Memory

The good news is that more ray tracing games are on the way, and below you'll find all the other upcoming ray tracing games we currently know about. Some are old games getting new ray tracing updates, others are brand-new titles that haven't been released yet. Alas, there's no guarantee that all of these games will get ray tracing at launch, but with a little bit of luck, the games you see below will eventually join the ray tracing games listed above.

DLSS games you can play right now:

Thankfully, the number of games that support Nvidia's DLSS tech is much larger than the number of ray tracing games right now - which is excellent news for Nvidia RTX card owners looking to squeeze some extra frames out of their new GPU. Unlike ray tracing, these games do require the use of an Nvidia RTX card, as DLSS is a proprietary technology exclusive to Nvidia. It's an AI-powered upscaling technology that helps to boost performance at higher resolutions (particularly when you've got ray tracing enabled), and many of today's big ray tracing games such as Watch Dogs Legions simply aren't playable without it. Without further ado, then, here are all the Nvidia DLSS games you can currently play right now:

  • Amid Evil
  • Anthem
  • Aron's Adventure
  • Battlefield V
  • Bright Memory
  • Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
  • Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare
  • Call Of Duty: Warzone
  • Chernobylite
  • Control
  • Crsed: F.O.A.D
  • Crysis Remastered
  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • Death Stranding
  • Deliver Us The Moon
  • Doom Eternal
  • Edge Of Eternity
  • Enlisted
  • Everspace 2
  • F1 2020
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • Fortnite
  • Ghostrunner
  • Iron Conflict
  • Into The Radius
  • Iron Conflict
  • Justice
  • Lego: Builder's Journey
  • Marvel's Avengers
  • Mechwarrior V: Mercenaries
  • Metro Exodus / Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition
  • Minecraft
  • Monster Hunter: World
  • Moonlight Blade
  • Mortal Shell
  • Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
  • Naraka: Bladepoint
  • Necromunda: Hired Gun
  • Nioh 2: The Complete Edition
  • No Man's Sky
  • Outriders
  • Pumpkin Jack
  • Rainbow Six Siege
  • Ready Or Not
  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • Red Dead Online
  • Redout: Space Assault
  • Rust
  • Scavengers
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  • Supraland
  • The Fabled Woods
  • The Medium
  • The Persistence
  • War Thunder
  • Watch Dogs Legion
  • Wolfenstein Youngblood
  • Wrench
  • Xuan-Yuan Sword VII
The introduction of DLSS 2.0 in games such as Death Stranding marked a real turning point for Nvidia's performance-boosting upscaling tech. Whereas previous DLSS games looked noticeably blurry with DLSS enabled, DLSS 2.0 is now indistinguishable from a game's native resolution.

Nvidia say there are more DLSS games on the way, too. DLSS has now been integrated into both the Unreal Engine and Unity game-making tools now, so it should be much easier for developers to start adding in support for it.

That said, several games Nvidia have announced over the past few years still haven't received their intended DLSS support yet, and consequently I've removed some of the titles that were previously included on this list, as even Nvidia seem to have forgotten about them in their most recent DLSS announcements. Instead, the games below are definitely confirmed to be getting DLSS support, based on the most recent information available to us.

DLSS games on the way:

  • Atomic Heart
  • Battlefield 2042
  • Boundary
  • Dying: 1983
  • FIST: Forged In Shadow Torch
  • Five Nights At Freddy's Security Breach
  • Icarus: First Combat
  • JX3
  • Lego Builder's Journey
  • System Shock (2021, available now in the demo)
  • The Ascent
  • Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2
