Most likely how traytrasing is handled in new consoles?
No, I doubt it.

As the article says, this affects only shadow quality. And if you look at the video, the shadows are indeed improved. Still:
  • it's not such a huge visual difference
  • they're only using a single light source
  • there's some kind of optimization, with it only being supported on undamaged tanks.
So, it's extremely limited, though certainly impressive. I would like to at least see ray-traced reflections. Also, for a battle game, you really want muzzle flashes and explosions to provide illumination - especially at night.

BTW, definitely check out the "Developer Diaries" video, at the bottom of the article. That was very well-made. Somebody put a lot of effort into that.
