    They recently canceled the Super Duper Graphics Patch because of performance issues, and now they go with Ray Tracing?

    This is indeed some early april fools joke.

    Not a joke, there was already mod for it. playable OKish on 2080 Ti. And in contrast to other RTX implementations, it actually looked good.

    Yeah Era can be a bit weird but I find it still has some very good early info and leaks outside of the discussion and drama, for now at least.

    If you build your world out of cubes, no amount of Ray Tracing can make it "more realistic". Maybe a bit prettier, but anyone that mistakes Minecraft for "realism" is just blind. :D

    Rtx on/off...

    Take the 1st screen. Very nice colors, fantasy look, inviting presentation. 400 fps.

    2nd. Washed out colors, cheap looking god rays, everything is dark and muddy. The thrill is gone. 60fps maybe?

    Maybe you should start a blog, the whining is old.

    I would prefer them to get rid of the blocky art style.

    Since there isn't a release date, I would assume it's an April fools joke :)
    Regarding the patch it sure looks very cool!

    Oh look! Those blocks now look like blocks in real world. So ... blocky ... :D

    Talking about Minecraft and "realism" is like talking about Leisure Suit Larry and "real world love tactics".

    So what should @nevcairiel and I think about? I bet I laughed at least the same if not more than he did while reading this. :D

    It looks nice but if this is what is supposed to convince me to pay the ~200$ premium after taxes on a 2070 over a 5700XT in Canada nope not gonna work nVidia.

    Nice for those with RTX cards, i saw the video below and have to admit that RT does look very nice indeed, of course i will have to wait for some console based RT verison of the game because i only have one kidney left after buying a GTX1080 at the time. lol
