Neon Giant's top-down action RPG The Ascent will launch with ray-traced reflections and shadows as well as Nvidia's popular DLSS tech. The devs released a new trailer to showcase the fancy new visuals.

The Ascent was already looking pretty spectacular but with ray-tracing enabled, those cyberpunk neon lights and reflections will certainly look even more impressive. Today, publisher Curve Digital released a new trailer, showcasing the game's improved graphics thanks to ray-traced reflections and shadows, which are now officially in this top-down action RPG.

The game is also adding Nvidia's mega-popular tech DLSS, to give you an uplift in performance if the ray-tracing visuals become a bit too much for your GPU. Both will be in The Ascent when the game launches in July.

"The Ascent ascends with the addition of NVIDIA DLSS and Ray Tracing! The Ascent will launch with ray-traced reflections and shadows, and NVIDIA DLSS, to deliver the definitive experience for GeForce RTX gamers," Curve Digital say in the announcement.
