DLSS and new ray-tracing tech by NVIDIA create an outstanding narrative first person experience
March 25, Cologne – Publisher Headup and developer CyberPunch Studios are thrilled to announce the PC release of The Fabled Woods, a dark and mysterious narrative short story played in the first person perspective.
The game is available now on Steam and on the Epic Games Store at a price of $14.44, €14.44 and £11.89, and includes the game’s art book (called “the Notebook”) as well as its atmospheric soundtrack.
In close cooperation with NVIDIA for support in technical regards, and by the help of Pumpkin Jack’s developer Nicolas Meyssonnier in terms of effects and lighting, The Fabled Woods features striking visuals and an intriguing story with many twists and turns. The use of DLSS provides for a significant performance boost enabled by NVIDIA’s recently-released Unreal Engine 4 DLSS plugin. In addition, the game features RTX Global Illumination as well as ray-traced foliage, shadows and reflections.
“Our goal was to launch the first game that can handle ray-tracing foliage with over 1 million instances and good performance.” explains the developer Joe Bauer. “All the trees cast ray-traced shadows and there are ray-traced reflections in all the water you can find in the woods.”
