Remedy teases new RTX filled trailer of Control at GDC 2019

Remedy debuts GeForce RTX-powered real-time ray tracing trailer of Control at GDC 2019

Remedy used GDC 2019 to debut a new 2-minute teaser trailer of its upcoming game Control, showing off some gorgeous real-time ray tracing technology powered by NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX graphics cards.

If you haven't read up about Control, it's from the developers behind Max Payne, Alan Wake and Quantum Break and is a sandbox-style, gameplay-driven experience that is very different to what you'd expect. There's supernatural abilities like telekineses, environmental destruction (from the use of the environment itself), modifiable loadouts, and more.

Remedy is powering Control with its in-house Northlight Engine, with the new trailer concentrating around RTX features including Ray Traced Indirect Diffuse, Ray Traced Indirect Specular and Ray Traced Contact Shadows.

It looks good, really good... but is it good enough to buy a GeForce RTX graphics card for? I guess we'll soon find out when Control launches later this year.
