In August 2023, we informed you about an RTX Remix Path Tracing Mod for Dark Messiah of Might and Magic. And today, we have some new screenshots to share from it.
Created by wiltOS Technologies, this mod aims to implement full Ray Tracing/Path Tracing effects to this classic title. And, as with most of the RTX Remix Mods we’ve shared these past few days, the following screenshots are not based on the upcoming Open Beta build of RTX Remix. However, the modding team aims to properly use those tools once they come out. As such, this RTX Remix will keep getting better and better. So yeah, make sure to keep that in mind.
Now what’s interesting here is that in order to make Dark Messiah of Might and Magic compatible with RTX Remix, wiltOS Technologies had to make it work with the DX7 API. The modding team claimed that this API downgrade had a visual impact on the game’s reflections. However, thanks to RTX Remix, they have managed to add path-traced reflections which are better in every way than the DX9 shader-based reflections.
There is currently no ETA on when this RTX Remix Mod will come out. However, the modding team already got access to the Open Beta build of RTX Remix, and it has experimented with it. So, hopefully, we’ll see more screenshots and videos in the coming weeks.
Speaking of Path Tracing Mods for older titles, you might also want to check out the following ones. Earlier this month, we shared some incredible RTX Remix screenshots for the first Tomb Raider game and GTA Vice City. Modders have also released early demos for their Path Tracing Mods for Max Payne and Call of Duty 4. And then we have these Path Tracing Mods for Doom 2, Quake, Half-Life and Serious Sam.
Have fun and stay tuned for more!
