If you’re looking for an excuse to replay Valve’s classic first-person puzzle game, Portal with RTX might be a good choice.
Portal is now up to 15 years old, so obviously it will show its age a bit in places. As part of yesterday’s (September 20) Nvidia RTX 40 series reveal, Portal was announced with RTX, which is exactly the same game but with some pretty impressive looking lighting.
The reveal trailer kicks off with a theme that will likely be familiar to many Portal fans and a light orb to show off the newly added ray tracing you can find in this version of the game. Portal with RTX also uses the also just revealed DLSS 3, which essentially uses AI technology to boost the game’s frame rate. However, it should be noted that this new version of Nvidia’s DLSS technology only works on its new GPUs.
Aside from additional ray tracing and DLSS technology, recreated high-resolution “physically-based textures and new improved high-poly models reminiscent of the originals” have been added, all in 4K, according to the game Steam page. Portal with RTX is set to be released as free DLC for all Portal owners, currently scheduled for release in November.
The tool used to create Portal with RTX, Nvidia RTX RemixAlso scheduled to be released for free, which appears to “can add ray tracing with just a few clicks and give modders the tools to create ambitious remasters, even for games that couldn’t be modified before.”
