You'll then receive a Steam code for a digital copy of Kojima Production's post-apocalyptic delivery sim ready for the game's launch. You can find a list of participating retailers and all the fine print over at GeForce.com (opens in new tab).
While we're still a little ways out from the game's launch, Andy's Death Stranding impressions (opens in new tab) certainly paints a weird and enjoyable picture of the game so far. We're also expected excellent performance across the RTX graphics card lineup—thanks to DLSS 2.0.
Nvidia's upscaling technology has proven itself to be a handy tool for increasing frame rates with little impact on visual fidelity during our testing of the RTX feature (opens in new tab). However, early testing in the game pre-launch suggests that Death Stranding will be able to offer 4K60 on every RTX graphics cards (opens in new tab), even the RTX 2060.
Beyond bundles, existing Nvidia RTX owners are privy to a new Game Ready graphics driver. This includes support for F1 2020 and Death Stranding.
Furthermore, Nvidia's announcing three new G-Sync Compatible displays: the Dell S2721HGF, S2721DGF, and Lenovo G25-10. All three monitors should support variable refresh rates through Nvidia's drivers, if they didn't work already.
So between the hiking, new drivers, and monitor compatibility, hopefully there's something in Nvidia's latest news which appeals to you.
