CD Projekt RED's highly anticipated game, Cyberpunk 2077, has already dazzled players with its mesmerizing graphics. However, now, the game will be taking graphics to a whole new level, as Nvidia's RTX Path Tracing technology is set to bring an even more impressive look to the game. On March 22, during Game Developers Conference 2023, Nvidia will showcase the technology during a demo of Cyberpunk 2077 in real time.

RTX Path Tracing is a combination of ray tracing and path tracing, and while it's not a new technology, it is a major milestone in the industry. It's capable of creating sharper and more lifelike images than any other current rendering techniques. We got a glimpse of what it can do during the September trailer for Ray Tracing Mode: Overdrive. Now, thanks to Nvidia and CD Projekt RED, gamers will get a chance to see it in action during the demo at GDC 2023.

At the event, Jakub Knapik, CD Projekt RED's art director, and Pawel Kozlowski, senior programmer and technology engineer at Nvidia, will present the demo. During the presentation, the audience will be able to see how the RTX Path Tracing technology adds to Cyberpunk 2077's beautiful visuals. The game is set in the futuristic Night City, and gamers can look forward to enjoying a brand new way of experiencing this world.

Adding to the excitement, GSC Game World announced that they will be in attendance at GDC 2023 as well, with an exclusive demonstration of the upcoming S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl. The game is a first-person shooter horror game set in an alternate timeline of Chornobyl, and it is sure to be a showcase of graphical power.

In conclusion, RT Path Tracing boasts many capabilities and will be a major milestone in rendering technology. Soon, gamers will be able to experience first-hand what this new technology can do during the demo of Cyberpunk 2077 at GDC 2023. For those who can't make the event, news of the demo is sure to travel fast, so there will be plenty of opportunities to see what RTX Path Tracing looks like in action.
