How far we've come. Back at Gamescom 2018, the Digital Foundry team was hugely impressed by 4A Games' real-time global illumination technology, powered by the ray tracing hardware acceleration made possible by Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti. There was just one problem - Team Green's top-end GPU struggled to sustain 60 frames per second at 1080p resolution, and if the this card was struggling, how would the lower-end cards compare? Thankfully, the final game possessed a revelatory increase in performance, and the goalposts have shifted dramatically, to the point where we wondered: can the 2080 Ti lock to anything like 4K60? And just what kind of ray tracing experience can you get on the RTX 2060, Nvidia's least capable ray tracing model.Suffice to say, this exercise is going to require some serious settings tweaking - similar to our prior tests with Battlefield 5 running on the RTX 2060. And yes, it may well involve some overclocking too. But one of the biggest challenges facing us is actually a … [Read more...] about The Metro Exodus ray tracing experience: can we run at 4K60 locked?

report this adWhen Resident Evil 2 players first visit the Library in the Raccoon City Police Department in the Leon A scenario, they will fall through the floor, leaving a hole in the walkway that prevents them from exploring other areas.

The Raccoon City Police Station must have been a nightmare to work in and – considering all of the locked doors – must have been a terrible museum as well. Some of the first roadblocks that you run into during the Resident Evil 2 Remake are the Spade Door, Diamond Door, Heart Door, and Club Door, so here’s how to find all of the keys to get through them. The keys that you get access to change depending on whether you’re playing as Leon or Claire. Leon can collect the Club key – which looks like a Clover too – while Claire finds the Heart key. Resident Evil 2 Remake Spade Door and Key The Spade Door is probably going to be the first that you encounter in the Police Station, on the west side of the Main Hall. This eventually leads to the West Office, where you find Leon’s Desk, and acts as one of your main rat runs between the Main Hall and the west side of the building. You can find the Spade Key naturally as you progress through the game, so … [Read more...] about Resident Evil 2 Remake guide – how to open the Spade door, Diamond Door, Heart Door, and Club Door
Destiny 2’s newest puzzle has players completely stumped. With Destiny 2’s weekly reset on Tuesday came a new event known as Niobe’s Torment. After players found their way to a previously hidden area on the EDZ location, Niobe Labs, they discovered a multi-tiered puzzle. Completing that puzzle will unlock the fourth and final forge in Destiny 2’s Black Armory Annual Pass content. But after more than 24 hours of attempts to solve the puzzle, Bungie has revealed that the Bergusia forge will open Wednesday at 2 p.m. PT, regardless of whether the puzzle is solved. “While coming together as a community to solve puzzles can be fun, setting this puzzle up as a gate between you and new content that you want to play has not been an ideal experience,” said Bungie. “As such, we will be decoupling the puzzle from the final offering of the Black Armory. All Annual Pass owners will be able to experience the Bergusia Forge when the puzzle is solved or when … [Read more...] about Destiny 2’s latest puzzle stumps players, forcing Bungie to release previously locked content
I hate driving. Somehow, I am legally allowed to drive on real-life roads, but I absolutely despise doing so. I find it boring, stressful, and--above all--difficult. The most recent game in the Dirt series, Dirt Rally, faced similar criticisms from some fans when it released via early access in 2015. Many praised the game for its depth and for how faithfully it recreated rally, as brutal as the sport can be. But even its biggest fans would likely admit that the game was too punishing for newcomers. With Dirt 4, developer Codemasters is trying to make motorsport more welcoming. A deluge of assists--for example, systems that help players with braking and cornering--will immediately make less confident drivers (read: me) much more comfortable. Codemasters' senior executive producer, Clive Moody, told me this was very much in the company's thoughts during development. "Dirt Rally was, without question, pretty uncompromising," Moody admitted. "A lot of people either couldn't get into it … [Read more...] about How Dirt 4 Opens Its Doors To New Drivers
