Nvidia has published the free game Portal: Prelude RTX. The graphics card manufacturer has renewed Valve’s iconic production using the latest techniques. A dozen-year-old title looks like new.
The first Portal game was a wonderful production that immediately became a cult hit when it was released in October 2007. However, 16 long years have passed since the debut of Valve’s extremely successful title, so the graphics have already aged significantly.

The game looks beautiful, but what has actually changed? The improved production has gained powerful support for all the latest graphics techniques offered by Nvidia.
This includes, among others: o providing phenomenal lighting of Ray-Tracing (RTX) levels, or DLSS 3 technology, which allows you to increase the resolution in the game while relieving the system. Nvidia Reflex ensures lower display delays, and RTX IO allows you to significantly shorten loading times.
Interestingly, the company also boasts that it has retained the original vision of Portal: Prelude. Nicolas “NykO18” Grevet, the author of the original mod, was supposed to help with the remaster.
