God of War PC will be available to preload from today, Nvidia announced DLDSR technology, and PUBG is now Free to Play on PC and Console.

God of War PC Preload

God of War PC will be available for preload in a couple of hours after recording of this video and the official release date is on Friday. Be sure to check it out if you haven't already. I would highly recommend God of War. It's such a good game. It was one of the best on PlayStation 4 and it has also been patched for PlayStation 5. But with PC, you'll be able to ramp it up to really high settings and hopefully it will be a good port. We have to wait and see.


God of War, developed by Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment, is an action-adventure game that was initially released for the PlayStation 4 in 2018. The game follows the story of Kratos, a Spartan warrior, as he embarks on a journey with his son Atreus. Set in a world inspired by Norse mythology, players navigate through stunning environments, engage in epic battles, and unravel a deeply emotional narrative.


The game received critical acclaim upon its release, praised for its stunning visuals, immersive gameplay, and compelling storytelling. It won numerous Game of the Year awards and became one of the best-selling games on the PlayStation 4. The popularity of God of War led to its release on the PlayStation 5, where it was enhanced with improved graphics and performance.


Now, PC gamers will have the opportunity to experience the epic adventure of God of War. With the ability to customize graphics settings, PC players can take advantage of the platform's hardware power to maximize the visual fidelity and performance of the game. This opens up new possibilities for players to fully immerse themselves in the world of God of War and appreciate the intricacies of its gameplay mechanics.


The announcement of God of War's PC release has generated excitement among both existing fans of the game and PC gamers who have been eagerly awaiting its arrival. The prospect of playing God of War on PC with enhanced visuals and performance is truly enticing. With the game being available for preload, players can ensure that they are ready to dive into the world of Kratos and Atreus as soon as the game is officially launched on PC.

PUBG Free to Play

The next bit of news for today is PUBG has gone free to play, so you'll no longer have to buy it, you'll be able to play it for free. And there might have been some speculation saying that they did that because every other battle royale game is free to play.


PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, also known as PUBG, is a battle royale game developed and published by PUBG Corporation. It was initially released in 2017 and quickly gained popularity, becoming one of the most played games in the battle royale genre. PUBG features intense multiplayer gameplay where players compete against each other in a fight for survival until only one player or team remains.


The decision to make PUBG free to play is aimed at expanding the game's player base and attracting newcomers to the universe of PUBG. Dave Curd, the creative director behind PUBG, explained that the game is in a great place with its eight maps, engaged community, and deep weapon mechanics. Making it free to play was seen as the natural step to introduce more players to the game.


Having played PUBG, I can attest to the excitement and thrill that the game offers. The strategic gameplay, combined with the tension of surviving in a hostile environment, creates a unique and immersive experience. While it is definitely more enjoyable to play with friends, PUBG also offers a compelling solo experience.


PUBG's transition to a free-to-play model aligns with the current trend in the gaming industry, with many popular battle royale games adopting this approach. By removing the barrier of entry, more players can now experience the adrenaline-fueled battles and the satisfaction of being the last person standing.


If you have been curious about PUBG but haven't had the chance to try it yet, now is the perfect opportunity to jump in and experience the thrill of the battle royale genre. Gather your friends or venture solo into the intense world of PUBG and see if you have what it takes to emerge victorious.

Nvidia DLDRS Explained

And the last bit of news for today is Nvidia has announced DLDSR technology. DSR technology allows upscaling of game graphics from, say 1080p to 4K while making it look better and so on. DLSS allows for better frame rates, that was the idea of DLSS. DLDSR combines both. It will upscale the game while maintaining decent frame rates.


Nvidia, a leading manufacturer of graphics processing units (GPUs) and software technologies, has been at the forefront of innovations in the gaming industry. DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) and DSR (Dynamic Super Resolution) are two technologies developed by Nvidia to enhance the visual experience and improve performance in gaming.


DSR technology enables gamers to upscale their game's graphics beyond the native resolution of their display, resulting in a higher level of detail and improved image quality. For example, if you are playing a game at 1080p resolution on a 4K monitor, DSR can upscale the game to 4K, providing a sharper and more immersive visual experience. This technology has been well-received by gamers looking to push the graphical boundaries of their games.


On the other hand, DLSS is a feature that utilizes artificial intelligence and deep learning algorithms to upscale lower resolution images in real-time while maintaining a high level of image quality. By using AI to upscale the image, DLSS can deliver higher frame rates and smoother gameplay without sacrificing visual fidelity. This has been particularly beneficial for gamers playing demanding games at high resolutions.


Now, Nvidia has announced DLDSR, a combination of DSR and DLSS technologies. DLDSR aims to provide gamers with the best of both worlds - the ability to upscale game graphics for improved visual quality while maintaining high frame rates. The example given by Nvidia using the game Prey showcases that DLDSR can upscale the game from 1080p to 4K while keeping the frame rates almost identical to the native 1080p resolution.


The introduction of DLDSR technology demonstrates Nvidia's commitment to pushing the boundaries of gaming graphics and delivering immersive experiences to gamers. By combining the strengths of DSR and DLSS, Nvidia is offering a solution that optimizes both visual quality and performance, giving gamers the best possible gaming experience.


Understanding these acronyms, DLSS, DSR, and now DLDSR, allows gamers to appreciate the technologies being used to enhance their gaming experiences. Nvidia's continuous development of these technologies reflects their dedication to creating cutting-edge solutions for gamers.


In conclusion, the news of God of War coming to PC, PUBG going free-to-play, and Nvidia's announcement of DLDSR technology have generated excitement and anticipation among gamers. These developments showcase the evolving landscape of the gaming industry, with more opportunities for players to enjoy their favorite games and experience new technologies. Whether you're a fan of epic action-adventures, intense battle royale battles, or cutting-edge graphics innovations, there's something exciting to look forward to in the world of gaming.
