Fast forward four weeks and we could now


  • Fortunately, WoW game designer Jeremy Feasel affirmed the zombie invasion part of TBC Classic Gold the event is only going to be active for a few hours through the day instead of all the time. I'm actually a little disappointed with that, honestly, because I believe it would be interesting to see yet another all-out, 24/7 invasion that players need to try and contain--something akin to World of Warcraft's infamous Corrupted Blood event.

    The Scourge Invasion is only one portion of Shadowlands' pre-launch event. Players may also venture into the arctic wastes of Northrend to battle bosses and make powerful loot, and there is also a new narrative quest to test .

    Otherwise, you can wait until the event inevitably starts sometime in the coming months. But now that it's about the PTR, it'll likely be occurring sooner rather than later

    Since publishing our first story, YouTuber and Reddit user'KokushiGG' has recently posted a new movie showing off Ray Traced Shadows in the zones in the growth. You'll discover the video down below. Like yesterday's screenshots, we may see the gap in Shadows is quite minimal with all the new feature enabled. Allowing Ray Traced Shadows, however, will appear to greatly impact performance with FPS falling from 120FPS to 60FPS in some instances.

    Ray Traced Shadows within World of Warcraft Shadowlands have now been enabled on the game's Beta/PTR, and the very first comparison shots have surfaced on the internet.

    Back in April of this year, Blizzard added Ray Traced Shadow alternatives to the game's Alpha. Unfortunately, actual Ray Traced Shadows weren't enabled just yet and people in the Alpha were only able to observe the new options. According to the option's description, it"improves shadow quality with beam design, which generates shadows with more natural softness, substantially increased precision, and out of other light sources."

    Players from the alpha were able to select among the following Ray Traced Shadows options:

    Fast forward four weeks and we could now finally see the way the new shadows seem in the upcoming Shadowlands expansion. Earlier this week we reported that the new NVIDIA Game Ready Driver added support for the looming new attribute in Shadowlands, and several Beta/PTR players have now shared several screenshots comparing Shadowlands with and without the Ray Traced Shadows enabled.

    As shared by Blizzard, the new alternative within Shadowlands utilizes DirectX Ray Tracing 1.1 (DXR 1.1) along with also a DXR 1.1-capable driver is required to utilize Ray Traced Shadows.We've included the shared comparison screenshots down under. As can be observed in those shots, and buy WOW Classic TBC Gold as may have been expected, the effects of Ray Traced Shadows aren't that obvious but do seem to be stronger in darker areas with low lighting.
