Cyberpunk 2077 Introduces Path Tracing Mod for Enhanced Realism

Cyberpunk 2077, with its free 2.0 update and the Phantom Liberty expansion, continues to push the boundaries of PC gaming. The game's latest update introduces Path Tracing, a technology that enhances the visual experience by ensuring that all lighting in Night City interacts realistically with the surrounding surfaces. This new addition has been praised for its photorealistic look.

However, for those who desire an even more immersive gaming experience, modder ‘Schreedr' has created a new mod that takes Path Tracing to the next level. The mod increases the number of rays and light bounces in the game, resulting in a more realistic and visually stunning world. By default, Cyberpunk 2077 uses two rays and two bounces, but this mod allows players to increase those numbers up to six.

It's important to note that the increased graphical fidelity comes with a cost – the mod requires a powerful GPU, with the modder recommending at least an NVIDIA RTX 4070. Players should also exercise caution when using this mod, as it can significantly impact performance if excessive rays and bounces are utilized.

The Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty expansion and the free 2.0 update are available on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. The Phantom Liberty expansion has been praised for its engaging storytelling, exciting combat, and high-quality side content. With over 120 hours of gameplay and a visually stunning game world, Cyberpunk 2077 continues to be a must-play for gamers seeking a truly immersive experience.
