Does Apex Legends support NVIDIA RTX ray tracing?
What is ray tracing?
Ray tracing is a special type of lighting technique made possible by NVIDIA's latest GeForce RTX GPUs. At a basic level, ray tracing analyzes environments in games and dynamically changes how light illuminates them based on things such as where objects are and what characters are doing. For example, beams of sunlight streaming through a window would light up a dark room much more realistically with ray tracing on than it would with it off.
Because ray tracing is such an advanced rendering technique, and because most graphics cards currently can't handle it, only a very small amount of games have ray tracing support, and unfortunately, Apex Legends is not one of them. Still, it is an amazing game nonetheless, and it's also free. Due to that, you should definitely check it out.
Free to play
Battle royale in the future
Apex Legends is a battle royale game set in the Titanfall universe, and as such it blends fast-paced, high-mobility action with the tense, adrenaline-pumping gameplay of gaming's hottest genre.
What games support ray tracing?
Currently, there are only two titles that support the ray tracing feature: Battlefield V and Metro Exodus. This is disappointing, but thankfully, both of these games are fantastic, so you definitely won't be dissatisfied with them.
Battlefield V is the latest entry into the hit Battlefield franchise, taking players into the thick of the World War II setting in an unconventional way. Instead of fighting in the conflicts that often get the most focus and attention from other developers, Battlefield V instead focuses more on the lesser-known battles of the war. In addition, the game also comes with an extensive suite of multiplayer content that's sure to keep you enthralled for a very long time.
To war we go
Fight on the frontlines
Battlefield V is an intense, visually gorgeous shooter that, despite failing in the campaign department, offers players an incredibly enjoyable multiplayer.
Metro Exodus is the third installment of 4A Games' hit post-apocalyptic shooter franchise, blending tight gunplay with tense horror elements and creatively-designed open spaces to explore. It's a fantastic experience that takes Metro to new heights all while remaining faithful to what made the series popular in the first place, and it just might be the best-looking game ever made, too.
From darkness to light
A phenomenal experience
Metro Exodus is one of the best post-apocalypse games ever made, and arguably one of the best-looking games ever, too. Despite a few bugs, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better singleplayer shooter than this.
