Hogwarts Legacy, the open-world game based on the Harry Potter universe by Avalanche Software launching next month on PC and consoles, will come with ray tracing support, and today publisher Warner Bros. Interactive confirmed which ray tracing options players will be able to tweak.
Answering a question on Twitter, a Warner Bros. Games Support rep confirmed the game will feature ray tracing options for shadows, reflections, and ambient occlusion in the Quality preset. This set of options is in line with those seen in most recent AAA games supporting ray tracing, so it is nice to know that Avalanche Software has gone full in as well.
