New GeForce Experience Update Will Improve Icarus, Halo Infinite, And Other Games

Halo Infinite enhancements include new optimal settings in GeForce Experience for Inscryption, Farming Simulator 22, Crab Game, and Ruined King: A League of Legends Story. While it’s not entirely clear what changes in GeForce Experience user settings, the result should be higher frame rates for each game.

While getting more frames per second in Halo Infinite is great, most of Nvidia’s latest driver update focuses on Icarus. A survival title that sends players on missions to the surface of an alien planet to mine resources, it will benefit from DLSS as well as new technology from Nvidia.

Icarus will be the first game to benefit from Nvidia’s RTX Global Illumination’s new Infinite Scrolling Volumes feature, according to the graphics card maker. Ray tracing will work the same way in Icarus as it does in many other games. Lighting from the sun and moon bounces off surfaces realistically, creating changing areas as players chop down trees and build their own buildings.

The infinite scroll volume feature comes into play due to the size of the Icarus world. Players are loaded into a large area in the game, and instead of constantly displaying small areas of lighting, Infinite Scrolling Volumes updates large areas of the game’s lighting around the player. According to Nvidia, this translates into lower memory requirements and better performance.

Icarus is slated to launch on December 3rd exclusively for PC via Steam.
