Microsoft and NVIDIA have launched yesterday the beta phase for Minecraft RTX. Minecraft RTX brings full path tracing effects to Mojang’s title, significantly improving the game’s visuals. And today, Digital Foundry’s Alex Battaglia released a new map that showcases most of the new Ray/Path Tracing effects.
In order to install this level/world. you’ll have to download it from here. Then, you’ll simply have to drop the unzipped version of this file into your “C:\Users\XXXXX\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MinecraftUWP_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\games\com.mojang\minecraftWorlds” Folder.
This world showcases the new light bouncing that comes with Ray/Path tracing, the new reflections and refraction effects, as well as Global Illumination and Ambient Occlusion effects. Furthermore, it showcases how path tracing can enhance even simple rooms thanks to its accurate lighting.
Lastly, Alex has explained most of the Ray/Path Tracing effects that PC gamers can experience in his world in the following video. Thus, I strongly suggest watching it.
