Minecraft will be receiving a bold graphics overhaul. The news was revealed last year at Gamescom when Nvidia announced plans to bring real-time ray tracing to the open-world game. According to a recent blog post, the new visuals are almost ready.

Nvidia uploaded a short clip on YouTube showcasing the refined effects of ray tracing in a new RTX Beta: more defined shadows, atmospheric effects, reflections and other nuanced details. The clip reels through six finished worlds designed by Minecraft creators, which players will be able to examine upon the beta’s launch. One of these is a vast lagoon-set world called Aquatic Adventure, showing off ultra-fine water reflections. Other worlds include the likes of Imagination Island, which is a large amusement park that comes with a massive Ferris wheel, while another, called Neon District takes players to a futuristic Cyberpunk-inspired place. Nvidia also created a guide for how players can move their existing projects to the new RTX beta for a much more refined view.

Though no exact dates have been revealed yet, the company expects to launch its ray tracing graphics update “sometime within this calendar year.”

In case you missed it, a Minecraft player has built an entire Earth to scale with a new mod.
