Watch Dogs 2 has received excellent reviews on consoles, and on November 29th the PC edition launches on Uplay and other digital distribution services. Featuring a stylized, digital recreation of San Francisco, the game boasts plenty to see and do, and on PC its incredible amount of content will be rendered at a significantly higher level of detail, and be enhanced by NVIDIA GameWorks visual effects.
Having worked closely with Ubisoft throughout Watch Dogs 2’s development, we’ve had the opportunity to integrate HBAO+ for richer, more realistic Ambient Occlusion contact shadowing; PCSS and HFTS for vastly improved character, object and world shadowing; TXAA for improved anti-aliasing and the addition of temporal anti-aliasing; SLI for increased performance on Multi-GPU systems; Surround for immersive triple-screen gaming; and NVIDIA Ansel, an in-game tool that enables you to capture unique screenshots in Super Resolution, Stereo, 360° Virtual Reality, and 360° Stereo formats.
