Watch Dogs on PC getting extra eye candy – if you use Nvidia

1 min read


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.
