On PC, Watch Dogs Legion will support both the DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 APIs,  with new features like ray traced reflections being exclusive to the game’s DirectX 12 version. In addition to this, the game’s DirectX 12 version also support features like advanced asynchronous compute, a better shader cache implementation, improved memory management and enhanced CPU performance.
