NVIDIA and Ubisoft Form Gaming Alliance for This Fall's Hottest Games
SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/13 -- NVIDIA today
announced an alliance with Ubisoft to offer PC gamers the best gaming
experiences possible for Ubisoft's biggest fall titles, including Tom
Clancy's(TM) Splinter Cell(R) Blacklist(TM), Assassins Creed(R) IV
Black Flag and Watch Dogs(TM).
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(R) TXAA(TM) antialiasing, which
provides Hollywood-levels of smooth animation, soft shadows, HBAO+
(horizon-based ambient occlusion) and advanced DX11 tessellation.
"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
team throughout the development process to incorporate our
technologies and deliver the most immersive and visually spectacular
game worlds imaginable."
"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 Tony Key, senior vice president of Sales and
Marketing at 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."
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(R) GTX(TM) 660, 660 Ti, 670, 680, 760, 770 or 780
GPUs. More details on the bundle and the exclusive tech within the
