Minecraft has started ray tracing and the result is stunning. Minecraft Bedrock Edition beta build is now testing RTX ray-tracing. The beta build injects ray-tracing shadows and lightning into the Minecraft world. This is not the first time that ray-tracing has made its way to the crafty, blocky world. The game got support for shaders and other ray-tracing features on the Java Edition sometime back. Now, the goodness of ray-tracing is coming to Bedrock Edition as well.

How to get started with Minecraft with RTX beta

In order to get started, download and install the latest Windows 10 updates. Then download NVIDIA’s Minecraft with RTX Game Ready Driver, which delivers day-0 optimizations and performance improvements. Make sure you own a copy of Minecraft for Windows 10 to participate in the beta program. WindowsCentral notes that Minecraft with ray-tracing is “almost like a new game”. With ray-tracing, Minecraft brings new clear water effects in action and realistic reflections as well.

The report further notes that “placing torches causes light to gradually flood into the shadows”. Ray-tracing has been about realistic appearance on the screen and Minecraft might end up being one of the torchbearers of that reality. The RTX version of Minecraft brings realistic depth and a new way to experience life inside the world. NVIDIA is also using its Neon city map to showcase what lighting and textures could do for the game. Let us know if you have joined Minecraft with RTX beta and whether you are enjoying it.
