Dead Space remake could make Nvidia PhysX relevant again

A new Dead Space Remake teaser shows off its visual effects, and it could help PhysX become a thing in the gaming PC scene again. The short clip showcases environmental influences that “live in the world of physics,” something that breathes life into the sci-fi horror game’s particles.

according to a dead space remake clipElements such as smoke will “interact” with the player’s movement, creating a more natural effect. In turn, this means that players can manipulate things like smoke, fog, pyrotechnics, and smoke, providing an added layer of awesome immersion.

It’s worth noting that while PhysX is anything but new, most modern gaming PC discussions revolve around features like ray tracing. In a way, this Dead Space trailer brings particle simulation back into the spotlight, meaning we can take full advantage of the upcoming game’s VFX. Naturally, this technology will also undoubtedly play an important role when it comes to the best VR headset games, with concepts like the metaverse relying on ultra-realistic digital space.

It’s worth repeating that while developers need to go out of their way to implement VFX, applications like Nvidia Physics require specific coding. As a result, support for joining games is hit and miss, which is a shame when you consider its potential.

Updated VFX including fog, smoke and pyrotechnic technology now reacts to changing environmental conditions and objects in the world.

Nvidia PhysX 5.0 was announced back in 2019, but it hasn’t seen a release yet due to the ongoing pandemic. When it comes to exactly that, its use in new games probably matters as much as ray tracing, especially when it comes to environmental realism. VFX packages can also help out upcoming best graphics card contenders like the RTX 4090 and Radeon RX 7900 XT, especially when both options are said to pack record levels of performance.
