Aurora Studios is excited to announce that the DirectX12 client beta is now available for qualifying Windows 7 players for an elevated graphics experience in Ring of Elysium. Players will be able to opt-into using the DX12 client from the in-game settings menu. Alongside the DX12 client beta a new LTM rotation event ‘Battle Rush’ has arrived for players.
Working alongside DirectX, Aurora Studios has brought the DX12 client beta to Ring of Elysium players on Win7, allowing for faster frame rates as well as even more realistic visual effects to immerse players as they’re exploring Europa and battling their opponents. Players whose hardware meets the following minimum requirements will be able to select the DX12 client in-game and can experience the next-gen graphics once their game restarts.
The minimum hardware requirements for the Win7 DX12 client are as follows:
- OS: Windows7 6.1.7601 and above
- Graphics card driver: 22.214.171.12415 and above (we highly recommend updating your graphics card driver to the latest version)
- Graphics card (Nvidia): GTX 750Ti, GTX 760, GTX 770, GTX 780, GTX 950, GTX 965, GTX 1060, 1660, 1660Ti, 1070, 1070Ti, 1080, 1080Ti, 2060, 2070, 2080, 2080Ti, GTX 1050Ti, GTX 1050, GTX 960, GTX 970, GTX 980, GTX 980Ti, Titan
With the arrival of the DX12 client beta comes an all-new limited-time mode rotation. From now until December 31, players will be able to participate in Battle Rush, which brings new challenges for players each day of the week. The event will have players returning to the icy peaks of Mt. Dione, surviving from Dusk Till Dawn, and also battling in Ashen Eye mode.
Players who favor sniper weapons will particularly enjoy Mondays as Battle Rush sends them to Mt. Dione where only sniper rifles and Desert Eagle weapons will spawn on the map as well as the TAC-50 arriving in airdrops. Tuesdays will challenge players to survive a night on Mt. Dione as from Dusk Till Dawn returns. Classic Mt. Dione battle awaits players on Wednesdays including glider, snowboard and climbing traversal packs for travel. Fridays will have players battling to their last breath with the return of Ashen Eye mode.
A new mode arrives for players on Thursdays and Saturdays during Battle Rush, ‘Bombarded’. Taking place on Europa Island, the default weapon in Bombarded is the RPG-7 with RPG ammunition, grenades, armor, and healing items being the only additional items available on the map. Players will also have to move fast in Bombarded as zone times are slightly faster than in standard modes.
Players will be able to experience past and new modes in the limited time Battle Rush event each day from 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm PST on NA servers, as well as from 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm GMT on EU servers and GMT+8 on AS servers. Ring of Elysium is available to play for free by visiting the Steam page.
