To celebrate this fin-tastic milestone, Tripwire Interactive is launching a free Ray Tracing update today. Built from the ground up for Xbox Series X and PlayStation®5 systems, today’s Maneater update brings the Gulf Coast to life by enhancing the realism and appearance of real-time reflections on the surface of water as well as the refractions above when looking up from below.
