Ubisoft and NVIDIA Form Gaming Alliance
Ubisoft and NVIDIA announced a new alliance to offer PC gamers the best gaming experiences possible for Ubisoft’s biggest upcoming titles, including Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist, Assassins Creed IV Black Flag and Watch Dogs.
NVIDIA’s Developer Technology Team is working closely with Ubisoft’s development studios on incorporating graphics technology innovations to create game worlds that deliver new heights of realism and immersion. One example is TXAA antialiasing, which provides Hollywood-levels of smooth animation, soft shadows, HBAO+ (horizon-based ambient occlusion) and advanced DX11 tessellation.
“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,” said Geoffroy Sardin, Chief EMEA Marketing and Sales Officer, Ubisoft “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.”
“PC gaming is stronger than ever and Ubisoft understands that PC gamers demand a truly elite experience – the best resolutions, the smoothest frame rates and the latest gaming breakthroughs,” said Tony Tamasi, Senior Vice President of Content and Technology at NVIDIA. “We’ve worked closely with Ubisoft’s incredibly talented creative teams throughout the development process to incorporate our technologies and deliver the most immersive and visually spectacular game worlds imaginable.”
The PC version of Splinter Cell Blacklist, released on Aug. 20, is available now from participating retailers as part of an NVIDIA bundle with GeForce GTX 660, 660 Ti, 670, 680, 760, 770 or 780 GPUs. More details on the bundle and the exclusive tech within the game are available here.
