The caveat was that the glorious Ray Tracing action only worked in a small number of maps that you could download (for free) from the Marketplace. Now, as a special bonus, Nvidia has released a further five maps to add to the existing six.
Check out the image gallery below.
These include an Italian village style map, an egg hunt, another village, this time in the dark, a medieval village (theme develops here) and an interesting one called The Observer which drops you deep underground top show off the amazing lighting that Minecraft RTX is now capable of.
It’s clear more time has gone into making these maps actually functional. The first batch was clearly just to show off the tech, whereas here the more normal way of Minecrafting – exploring – is brought out a bit more and there are actually things to do now.
