Bottom Line: With Ghostwire: Tokyo launching this week, Bethesda and Tango Gameworks have provided more information about using ray tracing and image reconstruction in the PC version. Bethesda has even tweaked the game’s system requirements to compensate for ray tracing, DLSS, and FSR support.

This week, Nvidia confirmed that Ghostwire: Tokyo will feature raytraced shadows and reflections, along with DLSS with the latest graphics drivers. While the company hasn’t provided the kind of detailed benchmark chart it’s used in the past to explain DLSS performance improvements, Nvidia says the feature could double Ghostwire’s framerate.

Bethesda recently unveiled a new set of system requirements for the first-person action-adventure game from Tango Gameworks, which adds three levels of recommended specs for playing the game with ray tracing enabled. Tango added basic system requirements to Ghostwire’s Steam page last month, but they don’t take ray tracing into account.

The new specs are very similar to the old ones, which themselves were nothing special compared to other recent games. The only change is the addition of Nvidia’s RTX graphics cards or AMD’s RX 6000 series GPUs. To play Ghostwire at maximum settings in 4K with ray tracing, Bethesda recommends an RTX 3080 or RX 6900 XT for players using DLSS in quality mode or FSR in balanced mode. The minimum and recommended RT requirements assume that DLSS and FSR are disabled.
