Thanks to a deal with Nvidia, ‘Minecraft’ will be more amped-up. Microsoft and Nvidia announced a tie-up on Monday.
Well well, PC gamers using Nvidia’s RTX graphics cards will experience an effect known as real-time Ray tracing. This is according to a statement released by Nvidia.
The news came after Mojang dropped plans for a graphics pack. This would have brought a new look to the game.
Minecraft will expose ray tracing to millions of gamers of all ages and backgrounds that may not play more hardcore video games,”
The Nvidia GeForce RTX will give the Minecraft world a brand-new feel to it. For instance, in a normal Minecraft game, a golden block just appears yellow. However, with ray tracing turned on, you will see the spectacular light, the reflection. Hell, you can even see a mob reflected in it! FYI, the term “Mob” refers to the enemies in Minecraft.
Mojang, the developer of Minecraft, was bought by Microsoft in 2014. Minecraft has sold over 176 million copies globally since its release.
Both Microsoft and Nvidia didn’t disclose any cash details for the partnership. According to Microsoft, Minecraft players will be able to test an option to turn on the more realistic graphics in the beta version. The ‘beta’ is scheduled for release in 2020.
