Ubisoft and NVIDIA announced a new alliance to offer PC gamers the best gaming experiences possible for Ubisoft’s biggest titles, including Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist, Assassins Creed IV Black Flag and Watch Dogs.
Taking game worlds to new heights
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.
