Ray tracing is a new visual technique that the PlayStation 5 is capable of, allowing for more realistic looking games than ever before. Chiefly, it’s an algorithm that traces light paths and then simulates how that light reacts to other objects in the game world. This includes lighting, shadows and reflections. Here are all the PS5 games that use ray tracing in May 2021.
