Portal with RTX Valve

After months of waiting, we finally have a release date for Portal with RTX, with the acclaimed DLC getting a re-release on December 8. The game will feature extensive use of ray tracing technology along with new Nvidia DLSS 2 and 3. The latter version will only be accessible to RTX 4000 series owners.

The RTX game version will be completely free for all existing Portal owners, but they have one thing to worry about. This DLC is extremely demanding and Nvidia has revealed its exclusive system requirements. As expected, the DLC will only run on Windows 10/11 64-bit.
