Watch Dogs on PC Boasts Exclusive Nvidia Features

By   /   Apr 10, 2014

Watch Dogs on PC will be boasting exclusive Nvidia options that are surely going to be a source of envy to AMD users.

Ubisoft released a new video today, showcasing the said features, and revealing just how Nvidia will help make the game prettier on PC.

The video is narrated by lead engineer Paul Vlasie who discusses how Ubisoft Montreal worked with graphics company Nvidia to add the company’s HBAO Plus (Horizon Based Ambient Occlusion) technology. The feature in question adds richer and more realistic shadows around objects that occlude rays of light.

Furthermore, the game will include Nvidia’s TXAA technology, a new cinematic-style anti-aliasing technique that reduces the flickering you sometimes see in motion when playing a game.

“By working with Nvidia we really want to make sure PC gamers will be able to enjoy and explore the most realistic and visually stunning world environment ever created,” Vlasie said, “the Windy City like you’ve never seen it before.”

Watch Dogs will release on May 27 for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.

We’ll be able to experience soon enough just how much Watch Dogs was toned down, following its initial E3 2012 presentation. Ubisoft is adamant that no such thing happened and the trailers do look pretty. However, knowing something first hand is always more reliable.
