Steam has Portal + Free RTX DLC (PC Digital Download) for $0.99.

Thanks to Deal Editor SlickDealio for sharing this deal.
  • Portal (PC Digital Download) $0.99
    • Set in the mysterious Aperture Science Laboratories, Portal has been called one of the most innovative new games on the horizon and will offer gamers hours of unique gameplay.
  • Portal w/ RTX DLC Free
    • Experience the critically acclaimed and award-winning Portal™ reimagined with ray tracing in this free DLC for Portal owners. Start thinking with portals, with RTX on.
    • The new free DLC, developed by NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios, reimagines Portal's graphics with full ray tracing, new hi-res textures, and new enhanced models. These enhancements improve immersion, graphical realism, and the overall gameplay experience. With the DLC installed, you'll be able to choose when you launch the game whether to play the original Portal or Portal with RTX.
    • If you aren't familiar with ray tracing, it's a method of graphics rendering that simulates the behavior of light. When playing a ray-tracing capable game on a compatible GPU, lighting, reflections, and optical effects appear much more realistic. With ray tracing, light can even pass through portals.

Here ya go - https://store.steampowered.com/ap...tories_VR/
it's made by a 3rd party but is supposed to be really good (and it's free but requires you to own Portal 2 on PC)

edit: says it requires an HTC Vive but it might work with other headsets? IDK - I downloaded it when I had a Vive back in the day.

This one you definitely should play. And can be completed in a sitting. About 2 hours to play through.

Welcome to PC gaming! The backlogs are real...hundreds of games here, so little time. Wait til you get on Epic, Origin(EA), UPlay, gog, among other platforms. Tons more games and Epic gives away free quality games all the time.

Portal belongs somewhere at the top of your list. Portal 2 was a masterpiece imo. I dunno about the RTX version as I haven't tried it yet...

Yeah I saw a post somewhere and the 3080 was only getting 1-3 FPS @ 4K with everything maxed. it's going to be a couple gens at least before midrange GPUs can play this level of technology at a reasonable FPS. Reminds me of Crysis.

EDIT: Here is the source 3080 @4K, Max + RT got 1 FPS (No DLSS)

I remember when Steam was just a baby, Portal was your free gift for joining. It turns out, "The Cake is a Lie!"

Yeah this pretty much crushes most cards with rtx turned on. Still, Portal might be the best single player experience for me ever.

Interesting. Good to know.

So we went from "Does it play Doom?" to "Can it run Crysis?" now to "Can it play Portal RTX?" Haha.
