Watch Dogs 2 PC Version Graphical Settings Revealed

Watch Dogs 2 has launched for the consoles with some stellar reviews and PC gamers are quite eagerly waiting for the game. The PC version of Watch Dogs 2 will launch in just one day and Ubisoft has detailed the graphical settings for the PC version.

The graphical settings for the PC version of Watch Dogs 2 are not as extensive what was featured in The Division but still the game offers quite some options for the PC gaming enthusiasts.

As you can see in the images below (via TweakTown) the PC version of Watch Dogs 2 will feature 19 different graphical options.

While the majority of them can be found in every PC game, however, one setting in particular, Headlight Shadows, has got my attention. This setting might add dynamic shadows from the cars but currently, we do not know for sure.

In the image, SMAA is selected as an anti-aliasing solution but those who own a Nvidia graphics card will be able to take advantage of TXAA.

Recently, Nvidia released a trailer detailing the PC exclusive Nvidia Gameworks features. “On GeForce GTX-powered systems you’ll be able to use Ansel, G-SYNC, GeForce Experience, HBAO+, HFTS, PCSS, SLI, Surround, and TXAA to enhance your experience and increase immersion”.

Not only this, recently Ubisoft detailed a host of Watch Dogs 2 PC exclusive features like 4K support, no FPS cap, multiple save file support and much more.
