At Gamescom this year, Ubisoft announced a strategic partnership with Nvidia – which means that the French company’s PC games will look better on hardware bearing the green-and-black Nvidia logo.
It’s a bit of an unusual move, considering that the next generation consoles run AMD hardware, making it possibly easier to optimise for the Canadian chip-maker’s tech.
Joining Splinter Cell :Blacklist and Assassin’s Creed Iv as the first games to get extra Nvidia love is open-world stealthy hacker Watch Dogs, which will be played the way it’s meant to be on Nvidia systems. It, like other Ubisoft games will be “enhanced with PC-exclusive effects and features.”
Neither Ubisoft or Nvidia have said just what those features will be, but they’ve promised to be a little more forthcoming “in the coming months.”
Watch Dogs is coming to on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Windows PC on Nov. 22 with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions available after each console becomes available.[Thanks to EK who needs a PK for the tip]
