Want to know every Xbox Series X|S game with ray tracing? We’ve got you covered! Both the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 support ray tracing, which is a new graphics technology. This feature effectively simulates how light moves around an environment. This includes reflections and scattering across a variety of different textures and surfaces. This results in a more realistic appearance, however it’s a very computationally heavy technology so not all games support it.
While both the Xbox Series X|S have enough processing power to handle ray tracing on paper, in reality it’s a lot more complicated. Many games developers are still getting used to programming for the current-generation systems, and as such aren’t able to allocate the resources needed for advanced technologies. Other developers are still essentially working towards Xbox One and PlayStation 4, simply upscaling for the newer hardware and thus are unlikely to take advantage of newer technologies, such as ray tracing.
Below however, you will find a comprehensive list of every title that currently supports ray tracing on Xbox Series X|S.

There’s not a lot to look at just yet, is there? However, we expect this list to grow significantly over the coming months, as the adoption of current-generation consoles increases and more developers take advantage of the new hardware.
