NVIDIA RTX Technology Comes to Battlefield V and Metro Exodus, Delivering Incredible Gameplay

No comments

NVIDIA has announced that two storied game franchises now support NVIDIA RTX technology, which uses AI and real-time ray tracing to deliver deeply immersive gameplay and powerful performance.

Battlefield V and Metro Exodus both incorporate support for real-time ray tracing and NVIDIA DLSS (deep-learning super-sampling). Implementing ray tracing and NVIDIA DLSS gives gamers the best of both worlds: Great visuals and great performance. 

Metro Exodus Gets Ray Tracing and DLSS at Launch!
Metro Exodus, the third installment in the haunting Metro franchise, will support RTX-enabled real-time ray tracing at launch (Friday, February 15, 2019). Metro Exodus uses NVIDIA RTX for ray traced global illumination and ambient occlusion to add natural, realistic light. It was also announced that the game will also support NVIDIA DLSS at launch.

Real-time ray tracing has been the Holy Grail of gaming for ages. Ray tracing models how light really looks and behaves—and light is everything for game realism. More realism means more immersion. That’s why we’ve worked with 4A Games to help them implement real-time ray tracing in Metro Exodus, the eagerly anticipated sequel in their legendary post-apocalypse series. It’s a dark, gritty world and they wanted real light to show that off.

Ray tracing delivers more realistic lighting, and by doing so it adds a new tool to the creative tool bag. With ray tracing, they can use light to set the mood in the same way movie makers and photographers have for years.

The biggest contribution ray tracing makes to Metro Exodus is a feeling — a level of anxiety that creates deeper immersion into the game. The realistic lighting uses the subtle visual lighting cues ingrained in our psyche to deliver feelings and emotional reactions not felt in video games before. It is a level of spooky usually reserved for movies. Ray tracing transforms Metro Exodus from awesome gameplay into a cinematic-quality experience.

DLSS is an NVIDIA RTX technology that uses the power of deep learning and AI to improve game performance while maintaining visual quality. DLSS helps players achieve smooth frame rates with graphically-intensive settings. Metro Exodus gamers can get an up to 30% performance boost with Ultra Preset and High Ray Tracing, depending on the GPU and resolution.  Let us know your feedback so we can continue to train and refine the performance and image quality of the deep learning network via future NVIDIA software updates.

Battlefield V Gets DLSS and more optimizations!
Battlefield V was the first title to support real-time ray traced reflections and has now added support for DLSS — giving yet another performance boost when ray tracing is enabled. Battlefield V gamers can get an up to 40% performance boost with DLSS, depending on the GPU and resolution. This update also includes a couple of further optimisations to ray tracing. There are no changes to ray tracing image quality or settings in this update. 

GeForce Gamers are Game Ready for Battlefield V and Metro Exodus
In conjunction with the release of these two AAA titles, NVIDIA also released a Game Ready Driver for Battlefield V and Metro Exodus.

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is Getting a Remake on the Nintendo Switch!

No comments


This brings tears to my eyes. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is the very first Legend of Zelda title I have ever played from start to finish on the original Game Boy where I spent countless hours to unlock every secret, dig up every soil, and collect every seashell I could get my hands on. All except that one dungeon that required you to have it in Color.  And now, it’s being remade for the Nintendo Switch!

We’re going to head into the island of Koholint once again and awaken the Wind Fish with musical instruments! It’s not going to be like Breath of the Wild, gameplay-wise, though. Link’s Awakening will play like how it was on the original Game Boy, but with cutesy 3D models that you’ll just adore.

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will be released on the Nintendo Switch this year!

I didn’t have a GameBoy Color then. So, yeah. Color Dungeon here we come! Well, I’d bet they’re going to include it. It would be nonsense if they didn’t.

Symantec Introduces Advanced EDR Tools and Fully-Managed Service to Stop the Most Dangerous Cyber Threats

No comments

Symantec Corp., the world’s leading cyber security company, today announced a new Managed Endpoint Detection and Response (MEDR) service and enhanced EDR 4.0 technology. These advancements improve attack discovery and incident response using AI-driven analytics and automation to quickly discover and stop sophisticated cyber attacks. 

Enterprise IT and Security Ops teams are increasingly challenged to investigate and respond to advanced and emerging threats with available resources and staff. Symantec’s MEDR service harnesses the power of EDR 4.0 to improve incident response, threat hunting and forensics, fortifying teams with investigation expertise and threat intelligence from a world-class team of Symantec SOC analysts.

Symantec MEDR detects stealthy attacks and expertly examines suspicious activity for faster incident validation and response. A powerful combination of Symantec EDR 4.0, the SOC technology platform, and the Global Intelligence Network, allows Symantec analysts to provide 24x7 expertise. Managed threat hunting, remote investigations, and endpoint containment enable security teams around the world to stay ahead of threats. Features include:
Industry- and region-specific analysts provide 24x7 coverage across six global SOCs.
Managed threat hunting provides detection for zero-day and unknown threats.
Industry best practices including MITRE ATT&CK framework help to quickly identify critical indicators of attack.
Rapid containment of compromised endpoints using pre-authorized measures.
Custom and emerging threat reports, business reviews, and 24x7 coverage.

“Many customers simply can’t find enough cyber security experts to meet demand. Our MEDR service provides access to Symantec’s elite SOC analysts and advanced machine learning techniques to reduce the burden on staff and shrink the time it takes to investigate incidents,” said Art Gilliland, EVP and GM Enterprise Products, Symantec. “For organizations with robust security response teams, EDR 4.0 is now available on any device, anywhere, before or after an attack occurs to provide comprehensive detection and response.”

Symantec’s EDR 4.0 continuously updates AI-driven detection engines using threat research from Symantec’s elite team of researchers and global telemetry from 175 million endpoints to train analytics to detect new attack patterns. EDR 4.0 is now available on any device, anywhere, before or after an attack. New features include: 
Advanced attack detections to help thwart “living off the land” file-less attacks.
Automated playbooks to quickly initiate investigations.
MITRE ATT&CK framework enrichment to expose gaps in the attack lifecycle.
Advanced pre- and post-breach comprehensive EDR tools.
Flexible deployment options for Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) and non-SEP endpoints for macOS, Linux and Windows.

“Many organizations are struggling with threat detection and incident response because of both the volume and sophistication of attacks, and an expanding attack surface. They also face many challenges including the volume of alerts and a continued reliance on manual processes,” said ESG senior principal analyst Jon Oltsik. “With a critical shortage of skilled investigators available, security teams need smart tools and services that can help them deal with the scale and speed of the modern threat environment, making it easier to identify and fix impacted endpoints. To improve IR processes, cybersecurity professionals must eschew legacy approaches and embrace the right tools and services.”

Square Enix and Ad Council Form Groundbreaking Partnership Against Bullying

No comments


The Ad Council will work with Square Enix, Inc. to include KINGDOM HEARTS III characters in the anti-bullying campaign, Because of You, with the goal of inspiring teens to build a more inclusive and welcoming community. A new PSA featuring iconic characters from the KINGDOM HEARTS franchise encourages teens to consider the impact that their actions—positive or negative—can have on peers. The innovative program marks the first time the Ad Council has created a PSA with a video game publisher on a social good effort.

Featuring footage from the new KINGDOM HEARTS III video game, the PSA reiterates the message that because of you, someone’s day, year or life can change forever. With heroes and villains from Disney’s Frozen, Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story and more, the new creative is being distributed to media outlets nationwide and will run in donated time and space per the Ad Council’s model. PSA timing shortly follows the game’s anticipated launch on January 29, 2019.

“At its core, the KINGDOM HEARTS series is about the power of friendship and helping those in need in order to overcome darkness,” said Brendan Docherty, Sr. Manager, Product Marketing at Square Enix. “The KINGDOM HEARTS story is filled with characters overcoming trials and tribulations through friends helping and supporting each other in tough times. We thought these themes matched very well with the valuable life lesson of the Because of You campaign.” 

Recent data shows that two-thirds of teens say they’ve experienced bullying, but most of them don’t think they contribute to the problem. This means many teens aren’t aware that their actions may be hurtful to others and they don’t always realize when they’ve crossed the line from joking around to saying something harmful. The Because of You campaign is a movement encouraging teens to reflect on the power of those words and actions.

“Because of You is all about how your actions, for better or for worse, can have a big impact on those around you, and helping teens think about how those decisions could affect others,” said Anastasia Goodstein, SVP of Digital Product Management at the Ad Council. “KINGDOM HEARTS III is one of the year’s biggest game releases, and we’re excited to see the game’s message of support and friendship reach millions of teens. It’s a great fit with our campaign’s idea that everyone should reflect on the power of their actions.”

Fans of KINGDOM HEARTS III can visit BecauseOfYou.org and learn more via https://becauseofyou.org/kingdomhearts/. They can also explore the rest of the site and take stock of their own behavior through “Honest Cards,” an interactive tool that prompts users to consider positive and negative behaviors and what impact those actions have on others.
