Quake 2 RTX will be released on June 6, 2019, and as now confirmed by NVIDIA, those who have a GeForce RTX graphics card or other capable hardware can experience the first 3 levels of the game for free, fully remastered with path traced graphics and other enchantments.

The code for Quake 2 RTX will be posted to GitHub first, and here are the details:

  • New weapon models & textures
  • New dynamic environments (Stroggos surface, and space)
  • Better physically based atmospheric scattering, including settings for Stroggos sky
  • Real-time reflectivity of the player and weapon model on water and glass surfaces, and player model shadows, for owners of the complete game (the original Shareware release does not include player models)
  • Improved ray tracing denoising technology
  • All 3,000+ original game textures have been updated with a mix of Q2XP mod-pack textures and our own enhancements
  • Updated effects with new sprites and particle animations
  • Dynamic lighting for items such as blinking lights, signs, switches, elevators and moving objects
  • Caustics approximation to improve water lighting effects
  • High-quality screenshot mode that makes your screenshots look even better
