In the latest AMD partner showcase video, Ubisoft have revealed several PC features that will be supported in their upcoming shooter Far Cry 6. The game will have DirectX raytracing, VRS, FideltyFX sharpening and more.

Ubisoft's upcoming shooter Far Cry 6 will pack a full stack of AMD features on PC thanks to the partnership between the publisher and the American tech giant. In the latest AMD partner showcase video, where the company allows the developers to talk about the visual features they have implemented in their games, Ubisoft revealed that Far Cry 6 will support ray-tracing, VRS, FideltyFX Contrast Adaptive Sharpening and more.

Far Cry 6's ray-tracing implementation will be based on DirectX ray-tracing and judging by the video, the game will offer ray-traced reflections. Other ray-traced visuals are yet to be confirmed by the developers but we expect to see ray-traced shadows and potentially ray-traced global illumination or ambient occlusion.

Additionally, Far Cry 6 will support FideltyFX Contrast Adaptive Sharpening for a cleaner and more detailed image without a performance hit. Here is the official description of all AMD features in Far Cry 6:

"In Far Cry 6, players are immersed in the adrenaline-filled, chaotic world of a modern-day guerrilla revolution. Engage Anton's regime in intense combat through lush jungles and dense cities as Dani Rojas, a local Yaran swept up in the chaos. In a fight where you must use what you have to make what you need, employ an arsenal of unique and surprising new weapons, vehicles, and animal companions to unite a revolution that will burn the tyrannical regime to the ground. In collaboration with AMD, Ubisoft has integrated FideltyFX™ Contrast Adaptive Sharpening, Hybrid SSR, Ray Tracing, VRS, and FreeSync™ Premium pro."

Sadly, we did not get to see any gameplay footage that would showcase these features in action but hopefully, Ubisoft reveal some very soon. 

Far Cry 6 is officially hitting the shelves in 2021 for PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Google Stadia.
