The current beta version of the MMO expansion World of Warcraft: Shadowlands now looks even better. The reason for this is a small update that introduced the previously announced ray tracing effects. However, these are limited to certain aspects of the game.
The beta test of the MMO expansion World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is still in full swing. Recently there was a new small update, which did not bring additional content, but an interesting upgrade for the graphics of the online role-playing game. That should look better now than before.

The reason for this is the introduction or activation of the previously announced ray tracing effects. With their help, the development studio Blizzard Entertainment would like to spice up the look of the add-on a little. However, you shouldn't expect any huge graphic miracles in this regard, since this change – at least for now – is limited to the shadow display. These should look a little softer after the update and thus create more realistic areas of darkness. You shouldn't expect a major overhaul of the entire Lightning model such as Minecraft RTX.
Furthermore, there are some conditions that you must meet in order to enjoy the ray-tracing effects of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. Here is the list:
- Use of DirectX 12
- Use of a GPU that supports DirectX Raytracing Tier 1.1
- Use of the latest graphics card drivers
- Use of the Windows 10 update from May 2020 (version 2004)
