Flashy new gameplay trailer reveals Witchfire will use NVIDIA DLSS3 technology
Polish developer The Astronauts has revealed a new trailer for their upcoming rogue shooter Witchfire. In addition to introducing some new gameplay clips, it also announced that the game will use NVIDIA DLSS3 technology, which a press release says will “massively boost performance”. You can check out the trailer below.
Announced by NVIDIA last September, DLSS 3 can increase the performance of the game to a significant extent. A demo on NVIDIA’s website shows two instances of Cyberpunk 2077 running at 96 FPS with ray tracing still enabled. “DLSS 3 allows for seemingly impossible high frame rates without affecting the image,” Adrian Chmielarz, creative director and co-founder of The Astronauts said in a press release. “No brains for a game like Witchfire, which is both action-packed and beautiful.”
Witchfire is a dark fantasy first-person shooter from the creators of Painkiller, Bulletstorm, and The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. Set in an alternate reality, players are caught in the middle of a war between witches and the Church, and must use the weapons and powers of Vatican witches to defeat their enemies.
The game is set to go into early access in the Epic Games Store sometime later this year, though that’s not always the case. It’s a delayed last October because the team decided to overhaul the design of the world and make it more open. Still, this trailer is a good sign that the studio is still working hard; hopefully “early 2023” will end as soon as possible.
