At GDC 2019, Epic Showcased “Troll” and “Rebirth”, two stunning demos running on the RTX 2080Ti. Both use the Unreal Engine 4.22 and demonstrate Ray-Tracing in all its glory. “Troll” was developed by Goodbye Kansas Studios and Deep Forest Films.

Troll shows a woman, played by Alicia Vikander, interacting with fairies in the midst of a forest. It starts off light-hearted but hints at something dark towards the end. The teaser has been under development for a few months although there’s no set release date.

Epic also revealed “Rebirth” as a jaw-dropping example of photorealism. The demo was developed by Quixel, using only 3 artists and the original version of Unreal.

Rebirth shows a post-apocalyptic world with beautiful landscapes and stunning sceneries. Later, we see a hovering vehicle speeding towards an ultra-mordern structure jutting out from the mountains. The details in the video blur the line between real and virtual worlds.

Both the demos show great promise for Ray-Tracing and its applications. Currently, Unity, CryEngine and the Unreal Engine 4 employ ray-tracing technologies. In the future, we are expected to see quite a lot of games utilizing Ray-Tracing while offering better performance at the same time.

You can watch the Troll demo here and Rebirthed here.

I've damaged way too many processors than I'd like to admit. Music and Sim Racing keep me sane; that is until I get a strange itch to tinker with stuff again.
