Ray tracing can completely transform a game’s visuals- here are some of the best examples.
When it comes to video game graphics, most agree that ray tracing is the next big thing that the industry is working toward, and with the PS5 and Xbox Series X both confirmed to support hardware-accelerated ray tracing, it looks like we’re getting ever closer to seeing it become an industry standard. But while consoles are still playing catch up, the PC gaming scene has been enjoying games with ray tracing for some time now, and as anyone who’s experienced it would tell you, it can truly transform the visuals of a game. And in this feature, that’s exactly what we’ll be talking about, as we take a look at some games that look absolutely incredible thanks to their implementation of ray tracing.
People don’t usually associate Minecraft with cutting-edge visuals, but when played on high-end PCs, it’s a completely different story. Especially with RTX on, the blocky sandbox game can take your breath away. Its realistic lighting and incredible reflections contrast with its simplistic and stylized visuals to create a stunning effect, and bring the game’s world to life in a way we would not have thought possible a few years ago.
