Today, NVIDIA and Blizzard Entertainment have enabled Ray Tracing for Diablo 4 with Patch 1.3.5 and the latest NVIDIA graphic drivers. Of course, you require an RTX graphic card.

  • Enabling Ray tracing will allow shadows to appear more realistic rather than sharper and less accurate.
  • Reflections in water will also appear more lifelike and reveal more details about the environment, adding depth to the broader environmental storytelling.
  • The Ambient Occlusion feature, which measures how much a surface is obscured from surrounding light shadows, has been updated and enhanced.
  • Contact Shadows were updated to apply to more characters in Sanctuary than before.
  • Those using GeForce RTX 40 series can max out their ray tracing settings and frame rates with NVIDIA DLSS 3 Frame Generation, while other GeForce RTX users can accelerate performance with DLSS 2’s Super Resolution technology.

In addition, you may enjoy the Mother’s Blessing for increased XP and Gold until April 2, 2024. Learn more on how to change the graphic settings to enable Ray Tracing in Diablo 4, here.
