Nvidia has announced that its graphically enhanced upgrade Portal RTX is arriving on December 8.
Revealed in a blog post, the December release date marks a small delay from the company’s original November launch plan but fans still only have another week or so to wait.
The free DLC for Portal upgrades the 2007 puzzle game with ray tracing and remade high resolution textures. DLSS2 allows for full ray tracing while Nvidia’s latest DLSS 3 technology improves the frame rate 2.8 times over for those who own an RTX 40-series graphics card.
Portal RTX was announced during Nvidia’s GTC keynote in September alongside RTX Remix, the tool used to remaster the game with ray tracing.
Nvidia said the tool would also be made available so players could upgrade other games, but it’s unclear if this will launch alongside the Portal update or be released later.
In our 8/10 review of Portal, IGN said: “The idea behind Portal ends up being more brilliant than Portal itself. Regardless, we definitely had a lot of fun with what is there and appreciate the level of polish and thought that went into the presentation.”
