Elden Ring is getting long-promised ray tracing support on PC, PS5, Xbox Series S/X: Details
Elden Ring has finally received its long-promised ray-tracing update, thanks to patch 1.09. The feature is available now on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series S/X, with famed Dark Souls modder Lance McDonald saying it’s unfortunately limited to ray-traced shadows and ambient occlusion. Although the Elden Ring settings menu includes a ray tracing toggle, there are no options for Nvidia DLSS or AMD upscaling options to ensure better frame rates. images when playing on high fidelity graphics settings. There are no ray-traced reflections either, and most visible changes are only visible outdoors, eliminating glowing edges on nearby rocks.
McDonald’s, which became known in create the must-have Bloodborne 60fps mod, notes that the PS5 ray tracing patch is larger, reaching 5GB, while the PC update is only 200MB. Indeed, the PS5 version comes with pre-compiled shaders, which are ready to go once downloaded and installed. On PC, however, Elden Ring will need to compile/install shaders on first launch after downloading the update – a common occurrence with most modern PC games. However, nothing comparable to Hogwarts Legacy on PC, which compiles shaders at each launch. FromSoftware is aware of the lack of upscaling options and therefore in its recommended system requirements 1080p resolution is the limit. Anything beyond that could potentially slow down your experience.
Elden Ring 1.09 is out now on PS5 and PC. It adds support for ray-traced ambient occlusion and ray-traced shadows. No ray traced reflections. No DLSS support to improve performance.
