Developers from studios Saber Interactive and Boss Team Games presented a video demonstrating the work of NVIDIA DLSS and ray tracing in the asymmetric multiplayer action Evil Dead: The Game. The video appeared on the NVIDIA YouTube channel.
The video compares two versions – with and without NVIDIA DLSS and ray tracing enabled. In the second case, the performance gain is an average of 30-40 fps despite ray tracing. The video contains fragments of bonus solo tasks based on classic scenes from the Evil Dead film cycle.
In Evil Dead: The Game, players take on the role of Ash Williams and his friends from the films (the team includes four survivors) as they try to stop the demonic invasion of Earth. You can also take on the role of a Kandarian demon who must destroy a group of heroes. One of the past gameplay videos the developers dedicated to features of gameplay for the monster.
The users have to work in a team, explore the territory, collect items, create tools and improve their skills. The arsenal includes over 25 weapons, including Ash’s double-barreled shotgun and chainsaw. Promised support for full crossplay between PC and consoles and single player mode.
