Nvidia ties up with Ubisoft.
It’s already been revealed that Nvidia and Ubisoft have signed an agreement in order to have the latter’s high profile games enhanced with PC-exclusive effects and features. As of now, this has been obvious in games like Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist – which has Nvidia’s HBAO+ Technology – and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Now, another AAA title has been added to the list: Ubisoft Montreal’s Watch_Dogs.
As of now, there aren’t any specifics as to what kind of technology the PC version will feature. Watch_Dogs will be releasing on November 19th in North America for both current and next generation consoles, although it will be a launch title for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 (so November 15th for North America and November 29th for Europe).
Considering the alliance that Activision and Nvidia have also formed for Call of Duty: Ghosts, the latter is definitely on a roll considering the dominance AMD has been showing as of late.
