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

Get your RTX and RDNA 2 graphics cards at the ready

The list of games with ray tracing and/or DLSS support is forever getting longer, and in recent days it’s become easier to nab a GPU that can actually take advantage. Many of the requisite Nvidia RTX models – including the best graphics cards of the current 30 series generation – are finally falling in price, after nearly two years of shortages and gouging. It’s not quite a return to normalcy yet, but if you’ve been waiting to get a card that supports DLSS upscaling while also handling the mega-detailed lighting, shadows and reflections of ray tracing, there hasn’t been a better time in ages.

This isn’t a GPU guide, though. It’s a (hopefully) handy list of games that either currently support ray tracing or DLSS, or will be have them in the future, either upon release or via a post-launch patch. As such, expect continued updates – recent additions include Ghostwire Tokyo, which launched with both ray tracing and DLSS as standard, and Deep Rock Galactic, which quietly tucked DLSS support into a recent update. Chernobylite also included ray traced lighting and reflections in its new Enhanced Edition.

It would be remiss to talk about DLSS without also mentioning FSR 2.0, the latest version of AMD’s rival upscaling tech. It’s a noticeable visual improvement on FSR 1.0, partly by virtue of more closely matching DLSS’s upscaling techniques, and FSR 2.0 can even produce faster frame rates than DLSS when upscaling Deathloop to 1440p. However, DLSS remains the superior system, for the time being: it still looks a little better than FSR 2.0, especially in motion, and as you can tell from the list below is available in far more than just one game. FSR 2.0 will eventually make it to games like EVE Online, Farming Simulator 22, Forspoken, Grounded, and Microsoft Flight Simulator, but is currently only working in Deathloop and Deathloop alone.

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 Legion simply aren't playable without it. Without further ado, then, here are all the Nvidia DLSS games you can currently play right now:

  • Alan Wake Remastered
  • Amid Evil
  • Anatomy of Fear

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 could often look indistinguishable from a game's native resolution - and currently we're on DLSS 2.3, which is even better rendering fast-moving objects.

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
  • Black Myth: Wukong
  • Boundary
  • Dying: 1983
  • GRIT
  • Loopmancer
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator
  • Midnight Ghost Hunt (available now in early access)
  • Ratten Reich
  • SCP: Pandemic (available now in early access)
  • Super People
  • Synced: Off-Planet
  • System Shock (available now in the demo)
  • The Anacrusis (available now in early access)
  • The Day Before
  • Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2
  • Voidtrain
