Doom Eternal has just received a highly anticipated update. As previously announced, the new update brings Nvidia DLSS 2.0 and ray tracing support to the game. Players using these tools will be able to experience much better lighting effects based on ray tracing. The game's performance has also significantly increased.
Increase in the number of fps by using DLSS 2.0 depends on the selected settings. We can choose to maintain the best image quality or get the highest performance. The resolution also has an impact on performance. The higher the resolution, the better effects we will observe. When playing at 4K resolution, running ray tracing, maximum graphics quality with DLSS settings focused on performance, the increase in fps was up to 50% (cited after Nvidia).
However, these are not the only novelties that the update introduces. Another expert level. called Nabad Terrace. has also been given to the players. It is to offer completely new environmental hazards and three levels of difficulty. It will also enable us to unlock special cosmetic elements. The devs have also prepared a new location on which we'll fight in multiplayer mode. The map called Corrosion will enable us to visit the ancient ruins located in the middle of an infernal swamp.
The update also introduces many smaller changes to the game, which are intended to balance the gameplay or fix bugs that occur in the game. This applies to both the multiplayer mode and the single player campaign. The full list of changes can be found on the official website.
