Nvidia Corp. on Wednesday announced an alliance with Ubisoft to offer PC gamers the best gaming experiences possible for Ubisoft's biggest fall titles, including Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist, Assassins Creed IV Black Flag and Watch Dogs. At least one of those titles will be bundled with Nvidia GeForce graphics cards.

 

"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. We have worked closely with Ubisoft's incredibly talented creative team throughout the development process to incorporate our technologies and deliver the most immersive and visually spectacular game worlds imaginable," said Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of content and technology at Nvidia.

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 Nvidia TXAA antialiasing, which provides smooth animation, soft shadows, HBAO+ (horizon-based ambient occlusion) and advanced DirectX 11 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. 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," said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft.

The PC version of Splinter Cell Blacklist, released on August 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. It is logical to expect Nvidia to bundle Assassins Creed IV Black Flag and Watch Dogs with its graphics solutions going forward.
