DX11: Far Cry 6
DX12: Far Cry 6
Even without raytracing, the visuals from Far Cry are a notch better as opposed to the previous version, and raytracing brings a sense of more photorealism. In Far Cry 2021, Ubisoft goes a step further and implements ray tracing reflections and shadows for the first time. Both RT effects affect the entire scenery and even at a great distance. Ray-traced shadows will undoubtedly help as they look more realistic, however as we have learned, create a hit in performance. You might want to leave it disabled and go with standard rasterized shadows as let's be honest, they're pretty darn good as well. We test at ultra quality settings with the HigH Quality texturepack installed.
