WoW Shadowlands with ray tracing support thanks to Nvidia drivers

With the addition of ray tracing, shadows in WoW Shadowlands will look better than ever.

It has been known for a long time that WoW Shadowlands will receive support for ray tracing. The option was present in the settings of the alpha version. Now, however, thanks to the new Game Ready drivers for Nvidia GeForce graphics cards, marked 452.06, official support for the game has been added. Although the “Greens” did not reveal any details, according to the description of the graphics option in the alpha ray tracing version in WoW Shadowlands is supposed to cover shadows that will look more realistic and reproduced more precisely thanks to additional light sources. Whether the scope of the technique will be wider remains to be seen, because a lot could have changed since the alpha. More details from Nvidia and Blizzard Entertainment are waiting for us.

Ray tracing can be checked in the beta version of the latest expansion for World of Warcraft.

The premiere of the latest expansion pack for World of Warcraft is about to take place at the end of 2020 only on PC. Unfortunately, Blizzard Entertainment has not yet disclosed the exact date. We would like to remind you that the promotion for AMD equipment lasts until October 3, 2020 and the game is added for free for selected Radeon RX 5000 graphics cards.
