Nvidia have just revealed that Diablo 4 is going to feature DLSS 3 on launch. With the closed beta kicking off on March 17th, Blizzard’s upcoming ARPG has just seen some delightful news before it kicks off.
With a launch set for June 6th, Diablo 4, or Diablo IV as it should really be referred to as, is going to feature the latest version of Deep Learning Super Sampling. If you do plan to pick up Diablo 4 to make use of DLSS 3, you’re going to want to make sure you have an RTX 40-series graphics card to make use of the Ada-exclusive feature.
Here’s what Michael Bukowski, Blizzard’s Technical Director, had to say about the recent DLSS 3 reveal:
“Supporting smooth gameplay in Diablo IV is a priority for Blizzard. We’re excited by the high frame rate of Diablo IV running on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series hardware and DLSS 3.“
The key take-away here is the high frame rate possibilities of the upcoming game – which is sure to excite many.
What is DLSS 3?
DLSS 3 is the latest edition of Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling technology, which effectively uses artificial intelligence to upscale resolution in order to drastically increase frame-rates.
Diablo 4 isn’t the only game set to feature DLSS 3, with the list encroaching nearly 270-odd games now.
Nvidia have also stated that adoption of DLSS 3 has occurred nearly 7x faster than DLSS 2 in its first 6 months, and that a DLSS 3 plug-in is in the works for Unreal Engine 5.2. This means that we’re only going to see more games with DLSS 3, which is nothing but music to our ears.
We’re going to be keeping an eye out for all things tech-related to Diablo 4, including if you can play the game with a controller, and if the game has region locked servers.
