Seeing Cyberpunk 2077 running on next-gen consoles was certainly a treat but those who plan on getting CDPR's game on PC won't want to miss the latest trailer.

Of course, experiencing Cyberpunk 2077 at its visual best won't come cheap, but those who can afford it will certainly not be disappointed. 

Which is what Cyberpunk 2077's latest trailer is all about, focusing on how ray tracing and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) make CDPR's gorgeous game even prettier. What you see in the trailer is powered by Geforce RTX 30 Series, the latest and greatest from Nvidia's graphics stable. 

As CDPR's senior level designer Miles Tost put it, "The more realistic the graphics are getting, the easier is for players to fully immerse themselves in the world that we're creating. So, when it comes to providing games that are cutting edge - you have to use cutting edge technology."

The dev confirmed a while back that Cyberpunk 2077 uses four ray-traced effects on PC - shadows, ambient occlusion, reflections and diffuse illumination, each of whom contributes to Night City's seamless transitions from the sunburnt urban concrete jungle during the day, to the neon-lit modern metropolis at night.

Running ray tracing and DLSS in tandem is the name of the game here, as the latter goes a long way towards alleviating the high hardware requirements of ray tracing. 

The results are drop-dead gorgeous in our opinion, with ray-traced reflections perhaps being the most obvious, making every shiny surface in Cyberpunk 2077 a feast for the eyes. That said, each of the four ray-traced effects makes Night City an even more inviting place than it already is. 

If you need help in figuring out which part of your PC needs an upgrade, or just to see whether you can run Cyberpunk 2077 with ray tracing and DLSS, check out the updated hardware requirements .
