Ubisoft and NVIDIA have announced they have formed an alliance with the aim of providing PC gamers with some spectacular gaming experiences, working together to develop technological innovations and basically make games look amazing and play in as immersive a manner as possible.
To give some idea of what we are dealing with here, take the TXAA anti-aliasing they will be using – which promises “Hollywood levels” of animation, soft shadows, horizon-based ambient occlusion and “advanced DX11 tessellation”. Wowzers. Just imagine how good the PC versions of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Watch Dogs are going to look.
The PC version of Splinter Cell Blacklist, releasing in the UK on Aug. 23, will be available from participating retailers as part of an NVIDIA bundle with GeForce GTX 660, 660 Ti, 670, 680, 760, 770 or 780 GPUs.
Some of the people behind this alliance have sounded off about its great potential, including Geoffroy Sardin, Chief EMEA Marketing and Sales Officer at Ubisoft:
“The PC remains one of the world’s most popular gaming platforms, and we’re committed to offering PC players the best possible experience with our games. Combining NVIDIA’s visual computing expertise and the creativity of our development teams will give customers a stunning experience when choosing an Ubisoft game for the PC.”
