One of the big takeaways from Microsoft's recent reveal of the Xbox Series X console is the power of ray tracing to enliven and enrich the games we play. Ray tracing is a hot topic in the world of video game tech right now, and allows developers to accurately simulate the effect of nature light within their games.

Eurogamer's Digital Foundry – which broke much of the latest news regarding the Series X – has been lucky enough to capture some footage directly from the Series X itself of the Minecraft DXR demo, and the results are pretty impressive.

Ray tracing is likely to be one of the key features of the next-generation console war, so it's pretty exciting that Microsoft appears to be leading the way in this field right now. Let us know if you're pumped about the power of ray tracing by posting a comment below.
