Ubisoft’s open world hacking adventure is already looking great on PC.
Ubisoft Montreal’s latest trailer for Watch Dogs serves to explain what PC gamers can look forward to when they pick up the game. And by “PC gamers”, we mean those with Nvidia GPUs, since Ubisoft has partnered with the company to ensure some PC exclusive features for the game.
These include HBAO+ (Horizon Based Ambient Occlusion) which lends to more realistic shadows and TXAA (Temporal Anti-Aliasing) which reduces flickering noise from objects such as fences, overhead cables, etc. Both techniques are employed to create a more realistic and highly detailed city that holds up even when explored on the ground level. While only two techniques were covered in the above video, you can bet that Ubisoft and Nvidia have even more to showcase.
Watch Dogs will be releasing worldwide on May 27th for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360. Stay tuned for more details as we approach the release date.
