PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) has been updated this week to support the popular ShadowPlay Highlights feature from Nvidia.
This makes it incredibly easy for players to capture and share their most precious moments. For those unaware, ShadowPlay Highlights require no manual input from the user. The system is completely automated and brings up a number of screenshots and clips for you to review at the end of each match. Those deemed worthy and special can then be shared directly on social media platforms, or uploaded on other sharing websites.
The first step in activating ShadowPlay Highlights in PUBG is to have the latest version of the game. The second is owning a GeForce GTX graphics card from Nvidia, which is also updated to the latest drivers. This does mean that the AMD community will not have access to the feature and must rely on other recording software.
Simply launch PUBG and the GeForce application will ask whether or not to enable ShadowPlay Highlights. Give the feature the required access and it will then automatically start recording for every match played.
To commemorate the launch of the feature, Nvidia has also partnered with Bluehole Studio to host a ShadowPlay Highlights contest for the game. Players are required to simply share their favorite captures on Twitter and YouTube with the following tags: @PUBATTLEGROUNDS, @NVIDIAGeForce, and #ShadowPlayHighlights.
PUBG has officially sold more than eight million copies since it entered early access on Steam five months ago. The full version is slated for an official launch before the end of the year, by which it will also arrive on the Xbox One through Microsoft as the newly announced publishing partner.
