In a move that could signal the next evolution in the gaming industry, Samsung Electronics has joined forces with NEXON to introduce the world's inaugural gaming title to harness the power of High Dynamic Range (HDR) 10+ Gaming. The highly anticipated game, named 'The First Descendant', could mark a pivotal moment in gaming technology and will be unveiled at Gamescom 2023.

According to Samsung, HDR10+ Gaming could present an entirely new dimension to the gaming experience, characterized by richer colors, heightened contrast, and perfectly balanced brightness. The standard facilitates the accurate rendering of intricate details in both shadowy corners and brilliantly illuminated scenes, offering gamers an opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the intricacies of the gaming world.

Seokwoo Jason Yong, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, expressed his enthusiasm for the collaboration, stating, "We're thrilled to join forces with NEXON, a true pioneer in video games, to introduce the world's first HDR10+ Gaming title, 'The First Descendant.' This is a gaming milestone that goes beyond mere technological advancement; it represents Samsung's continued commitment to enhance the gaming experience as technology evolves."

The HDR10+ Gaming standard also introduces an automatic HDR display mode setup that seamlessly optimizes the gaming experience. This feature minimizes the need for manual adjustments, thus enabling gamers to focus on their play. Moreover, the standard ensures that latency remains low and variable refresh rate support is provided, leading to more responsive gameplay.
