SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 05, 2019 — NVIDIA and Activision today announced that NVIDIA is the official PC partner for Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare®, the highly anticipated, all-new title scheduled for release on Oct. 25.
NVIDIA is working side by side with developer Infinity Ward to bring real-time DirectX Raytracing (DXR), and NVIDIA® Adaptive Shading gaming technologies to the PC version of the new Modern Warfare.
“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is poised to reset the bar upon release this October,” said Matt Wuebbling, head of GeForce marketing at NVIDIA. “NVIDIA is proud to partner closely with this epic development and contribute toward the creation of this gripping experience. Our teams of engineers have been working closely with Infinity Ward to use NVIDIA RTX technologies to display the realistic effects and incredible immersion that Modern Warfare offers.”
The most celebrated series in Call of Duty will make its return in a powerful experience reimagined from the ground up. Published by Activision and developed by Infinity Ward, the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will release on Blizzard Battle.net. Modern Warfare features a unified narrative experience and progression across an epic, heart-racing, single-player story, an action-packed multiplayer playground, and new cooperative gameplay.
“Our work with NVIDIA GPUs has helped us throughout the PC development of Modern Warfare,” said Dave Stohl, co-studio head at Infinity Ward. “We’ve seamlessly integrated the RTX features like ray tracing and adaptive shading into our rendering pipeline. It’s been a great addition to our existing technology, and we look forward to our PC fans experiencing it for themselves very soon.”
DXR brings real-time, cinematic-quality rendering to content creators and game developers. DXR consists of a highly scalable ray-tracing technology and runs on NVIDIA Turing, NVIDIA Volta and NVIDIA Pascal architecture GPUs.
NVIDIA Adaptive Shading is a new, advanced shading technique that enables developers to improve performance and achieve a real-time visual fidelity previously impossible in games. By adjusting the rate at which portions of the screen are shaded, the technology reduces the work the GPU has to do, which boosts performance without denigrating image quality.
About NVIDIA NVIDIA’s (NASDAQ: NVDA) invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics and revolutionized parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing — with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world. Today, NVIDIA is increasingly known as “the AI computing company.” More information at http://nvidianews.nvidia.com/.
