Nvidia is running another free game promotion, partnering with Black Myth: Wukong. Those who purchase a new RTX 40-series graphics card, laptop, or PC, will be eligible.

Black Myth launches on August 20, however, you shouldn’t wait until then to get new hardware. The offer will be live from July 9 to August 19, a day before Wukong’s release. Any new hardware installed or laptops set up during this time should be eligible for a free code.

The Chinese-made game has received all of the Nvidia trimmings possible. Featured since 2021, Black Myth: Wukong has been one of Team Green’s go-to to show off its technology.

It makes perfect sense to bundle the two together, as Wukong will be bringing DLSS 3.5 to the table, with full ray tracing support. Developers Game Science is building the game on Unreal 5, having upgraded from the originally announced UE4.

With even more requirements needed to run smoothly, DLSS 3.5 is sure to make a world of difference. Nvidia’s DLSS is their supersampling offering, reducing the resolution of the game to blow it back up to the required resolution through machine learning algorithms. 

DLSS 3.5, however, differs slightly. Nvidia has specifically targeted lighting with 3.5, with it applying the same supersampling concept to in-game lighting and ray tracing.

Black Myth: Wukong has generated a tonne of hype since its announcement. From its impressive visuals and flashy combat, we’ll find out if it holds up to the promise seen.
