NVIDIA DLSS 3 Plug-in Available Now for Unreal Engine 5.2
With a list of over 300 DLSS-enhanced games and apps currently available, DLSS momentum is already on fire, and the flames just got a lot higher with the release of a new plug-in for DLSS 3 to the Unreal Engine 5.2 from Epic Games. Unreal Engine is an open and advanced real-time 3D creation tool, enabling game developers and creators the freedom and control to deliver cutting-edge real-time 3D content, interactive experiences, and immersive virtual worlds.
Today, Epic Games’ Unreal Engine is upgraded with a Frame Generation plugin for Unreal Engine 5.2. Now all Unreal Engine developers and creators can take full advantage of DLSS 3’s AI-powered performance multiplier. Unreal Engine developers can get started now with help from the NVIDIA plugin integration blog and should check out the Inside Unreal interview that Epic held with NVIDIA developers, talking in-depth about the new Unreal Engine 5.2 plugin.
“NVIDIA DLSS 3 introduces truly impressive frame generation technology and the Unreal Engine 5.2 plugin will offer developers a great choice for increased quality and performance of their games,” said Nick Penwarden, Vice President of Engineering at Epic Games.
