The latest Wolfenstein: Youngblood update has introduced two, Nvidia-exclusive additions to graphics settings. You can now turn on RTX for fancy reflections or gain some framerate with DLSS.

You can now experience Bethesda's mediocre shooter Wolfenstein: Youngblood with higher visual fidelity and better performance than before, which should make hunting down Nazis a bit more fun. In the latest announcement, the publisher confirmed that Wolfenstein: Youngblood now supports RTX ray-tracing and deep learning supersampling (DLSS) technology.

Both are, of course, exclusive to Nvidia RTX cards so you'll have to own one of the following GPUs:

  • GeForce RTX 2060
  • GeForce RTX 2070
  • GeForce RTX 2080

To enable ray-traced reflections and DLSS, simply go to Options, then Video and click Advanced. Scroll down to find ray-traced reflections and switch it on and then restart the game. As for DLSS, it's in the same menu so switch it on if you have issues with performance. DLSS will basically lower your resolution every time the game would drop below the target frame rate, ensuring that you always have a smooth experience for a small loss in sharpness.

On top of these additions, the latest update adds benchmark tool for any video card (NVIDIA or AMD) that meets Wolfenstein: Youngblood’s minimum required specs. You can read more about the update on and also look at the ton of graphs that show how Wolfenstein: Youngblood looks and performs with the brand new additions.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia.
