Elden Ring new screenshots-2

Elden Ring Update 1.09 released, adds Ray Tracing on PC, full patch notes

FromSoftware has just released Update 1.09 for Elden Ring, which adds Ray Tracing effects to the PC version. FromSoftware has used Ray Tracing in order to enhance the game’s ambient occlusion and shadows.

The bad news here is that FromSoftware did not add support for any upscaler. In other words, there is still no support for DLSS 2 or FSR 2.0.

We’re currently downloading Elden Ring and we’ll share some comparison screenshots between RT On and RT Off. We’ll also share some benchmarks, so stay tuned for more.

Alongside these new RT effects, Update 1.09 brings a number of bug fixes and balance tweaks.

As always, Steam will download this update the next time you launch its client. Below you can also find its complete changelog.
