Dragon’s Dogma 2 PC ray tracing quality impresses with the release of a new mod

A new mod for the PC version of Dragon’s Dogma 2 is available online this week. It proposes a ray of hope to an otherwise graphically backward game. It offers enhanced ray tracing capabilities, although some trade-offs are crucial to execute this improvement. Apart from working on Dragon’s Dogma 2 PC ray tracing quality, a few more issues have been found fixes.

The Quality Ray Tracing mod, available on Nexus Mods, has tweaked the game’s resolution. Increasing the resolution to the maximum, rather than the default 0.4 settings, has resulted in detailed and realistic lighting effects in the game. In Dragon’s Dogma 2, ray tracing is a rendering technique that mimics how light interacts with objects in the game world, enhancing visual quality by accurately simulating reflections, shadows, and other lighting effects.

In addition to fixing the ray tracing, the Dragon’s Dogma 2 PC mod has also disabled denoising. It’s a feature to reduce noise in ray-traced images. By doing so, the mod addresses a bug where outlines of objects and characters appear blurry or smeared, graininess or speckles, especially in complex lighting areas.

However, these Dragon’s Dogma 2 PC mod enhancements come at a cost. The increased resolution and disabled denoising can significantly impact performance, particularly on less powerful systems. Using ray tracing at higher resolutions can strain the GPU, potentially lowering performance, such as frame rates. It’s advisable to use this mod only if you have a high-end system capable of handling the increased demands, as it may otherwise lead to performance issues.

Another option is to use the Quality Ray Tracing mod alongside a mod that enables Frame Generation with DLSS3, which uses AI to upscale images, potentially improving performance without significant loss of visual quality. However, some players have complained of application freezes when activating DLSS3, so it’s advised to proceed with caution and ensure your system can handle it. Few are also complaining that DLSS doesn’t work and there’s little to do in 4k. It’s playable but patches are needed because the game doesn’t have great graphics.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 was launched on PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S. The PC version is facing flak due to FPS wobbles and poorly optimized graphics. Die-hard fans do not want to ruin their experience and have put the game on standby waiting for fix patches. Players are now eagerly awaiting the game’s first patch, which Capcom has promised will improve visual quality when using DLSS and address several bugs currently present in the game.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 PC system requirements

Dragon’s Dogma 2 has demanding minimum specs for 1080p and recommends high-end specs for 4K, leaving players at 1080p and 1440p with little guidance. Storage requirements are unspecified, but the game currently uses about 60.53GB on an SSD.

Minimum Dragon’s Dogma 2 PC Specs:

  • OS: Windows 10 / 11 (64-bit)
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-10600 / AMD Ryzen 5 3600
  • RAM: 16GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 / AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT (8GB)
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Additional Notes: Expected performance at 1080p/30fps. Framerate drops are possible in graphically intense scenes. Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti or AMD Radeon RX 6800 is required for ray tracing support.

Recommended Dragon’s Dogma 2 PC Specs:

  • OS: Windows 10 / 11 (64-bit)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-10700 / AMD Ryzen 5 3600X
  • RAM: 16GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 / AMD Radeon RX 6700
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Additional Notes: Expected performance at 2160p/30fps. Framerate drops are possible in graphically intense scenes. Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti or AMD Radeon RX 6800 is required for ray tracing support.

Capcom cautions of potential FPS drops, particularly in towns, cities, or busy camps, where a PC running smoothly at 60-80fps in the wilderness may drop to 30-40fps, with occasional dips below that.
