Also, this evening, DICE showcased NVIDIA's new RTX technology announced
during NVIDIA's press conference with a jaw-dropping live demo of Battlefield
on PC, one of the first games being developed on the NVIDIA
RTX platform to feature real-time ray tracing as a rendering technique.
Previously used to pre-render lifelike worlds in movies, ray tracing
with the NVIDIA RTX platform brings real-time, cinematic-quality
rendering to video games. In Battlefield V, NVIDIA RTX allows
DICE to imitate the way light is reflected in the real world enhancing
the fidelity of reflective surfaces in every level, map and locale in
the game. This will ensure Battlefield V feels more lifelike and
dynamic, leading to a more immersive experience that makes players feel
like the battle is unfolding in a full 360-degrees around them. The use
of real-time ray tracing in Battlefield V is made possible by
NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 20 series GPUs.

"It's always been important to us as a studio to stay one step ahead as
we look to increase the graphical fidelity in games," said Christian
Holmquist, Technical Director at DICE. "With this new NVIDIA RTX
platform, more detail than ever before can now be seen on the
battlefield, from recognizing the flash of a muzzle being reflected off
a car to spotting the detailed reflection of a devastated facade in a
splash of water on the ground. Things in the environment will feel more
lifelike and real and all-out war will never look the same."

"We've been close partners with DICE for many years and we've spent much
of the last year deeply embedded with their team in Stockholm to bring
this vision to life," said Tony Tamasi, Senior Vice President of Content
and Technology at NVIDIA. "With the help of NVIDIA RTX, DICE is creating
a revolutionary moment for computer graphics in Battlefield V, as
ray tracing has been used in film for years and has long been considered
the Holy Grail for real-time rendering in games."

Building upon this partnership with NVIDIA, both NVIDIA Ansel and
Highlights will be also be integrated into Battlefield V for
GeForce PC gamers. NVIDIA Highlights automatically captures a gamer's
greatest gaming achievements in video. Integrated directly with the
game, it knows precisely when that magic moment will happen and
automatically records it using NVIDIA ShadowPlay technology, making it
easier to capture those Only in Battlefield moments.

NVIDIA Ansel, available in the single-player War Stories in Battlefield
, is a revolutionary way to capture in-game photography. Users can
compose shots from any position, adjust with post-process filters,
capture HDR images in high-fidelity formats, and share their screenshots
with the world.

Battlefield V will be available worldwide October 19th on Xbox
One, PlayStation®4 and Origin for PC. Those that pre-order the Battlefield
Deluxe Edition on any platform will get access three days early on
October 16**, while Origin Access Premier members on PC will be able to
