Ray Tracing Games

Xbox Series X is the most powerful Xbox ever made, meaning the console is capable of some impressive yet demanding high-end techniques. One such feature is ray tracing, where realistic light beams are calculated in real-time, which can lead to significantly more impressive and realistic reflections and lighting than in games that don’t use it.

Ray tracing typically offers the most impressive results in games that are going for a more realistic art style, although that’s not to say that it can’t improve visuals in other kinds of games as well. Here, you can check out every Xbox Series X|S title that supports ray tracing. Options for this are typically found in the menus of a game, since it’s a power-hungry technique and developers will usually have to sacrifice either resolution or frame rate in order to fully implement it. Based on your personal preference, that might just be a trade-off you are willing to take...
