Minecraft RTX for Windows is a next-generation version of the sandbox crafting megahit game Minecraft, enhanced for the newest PC graphic cards that are capable of rendering games with a wide array of taxing RayTracing effects.

While the vast majority of games are created using the traditional techniques where lightning, reflections, and other light-propagation effects such as shadows, caustics, ambient occlusion are pre-calculated and are simply “played back” during gameplay, this latest version of Minecraft tosses all those systems away and embraced fully real-time calculation of how light travels across the game world.

Powered by the latest generation of Nvidia RTX graphic cards, Minecraft with RTX can take full advantage of real-time global illumination with several bounces of light, emissive pixels, realistically illuminated world, correct shadows, and rich advanced materials to create the most impressive looking version of Minecraft that was ever crafted.

In addition to RTX effects, the rendering capability of this version of the game is also greatly boosted with the presence of DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling), an innovative upsampling technique that can take lower resolution version of the game and accurately calculate higher resolution version of the image. Since the Raytracing calculations are especially taxing on the GPU and the amount of the light rays that have to be calculated in each frame is directly proportional to the active resolution, having the game run at a lower resolution and then upsampled by DLSS is a must for all gamers.

Minecraft RTX for Windows 10/Windows 11 is distributed online only via its official page on Microsoft Store, where all PC gamers with compatible GPU card download it and experience with ease. In addition to fully path-traced raytracing support, this version of the game also comes with the special Physically Based Rendering texture pack that will transform and add additional detail to many materials found inside the game.

The basic version of this game also includes a wide variety of specially crafted worlds, enabling users to explore them in stunning raytracing visuals with incredible amounts of realistic detail. One of those maps is the Ancient Roman Colosseum where players can not only explore this historic monument but also engage in wave-based combat against enemies with up to 3 friends.

Minecraft RTX for PC is a premium game that can be either bought for a single price or unlocked as part of Xbox Game Pass, a gaming subscription that unlocks hundreds of games on both PC and Xbox console platforms.
