Determining which technologies will change the face of gaming can be tough. The industry is constantly working and pushing the boundaries of what’s feasible especially with regards to graphics. So let’s take a look at 15 of the biggest leaps in technology that could change video games forever.

Ray-Tracing to Revamp Old Games

Path tracing has been utilized to make the classic FPS look almost new. Quake 2 RTX also has over 3,000 Q2XP mod-pack textures, adds global illumination, real-time reflections, dynamic lighting and so on. However, the potential for ray-tracing to update games for a new generation (at least those with RTX cards) is immense.
