Breath of the Wild looks stunning in 8K — but there’s a huge catch

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is no stranger to the modding community, whether it’s making Zelda into a playable character or adding gear from classic games. But every now and then, mods give us a glimpse of what Nintendo could accomplish in the future, even if the official hardware hasn’t caught up just yet. One ambitious YouTube channel has modified Breath of the Wild to run at 8K resolution with ray tracing enabled, and it takes the game from “gorgeous” to “jaw-dropping.”

The video is available on the Digital Dreams YouTube channel. For those not familiar with it, Digital Dreams promises viewers the “best next gen (sic) graphics and photorealistic gameplay” by running upscaling mods on popular games. Generally speaking, Digital Dreams runs these mods on PC games, such as Grand Theft Auto V and The Witcher 3, where installing mods and tinkering with graphical settings is relatively easy. But every now and then, the channel turns its attention to console games, including Breath of the Wild.
