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 Splinter Cell Blacklist, Assassins Creed IV Black Flag and Watch Dogs.
Splinter Cell Blacklist: Digital Deluxe Edition, August’s biggest and best game, is now bundled with qualifying NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics cards at participating retailers. Featuring DirectX 11 effects, parallax mapping, tessellation, HBAO+ ambient occlusion, native NVIDIA Surround support, and NVIDIA TXAA Anti-Aliasing, the new Splinter Cell is a technological marvel that makes excellent use of the GeForce GTX 600 and 700 Series graphics cards it is bundled with.
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 Hollywood-levels of smooth animation, soft shadows, HBAO+ (horizon-based ambient occlusion) and advanced DX11 tessellation.
In addition to the game itself, Blacklist’s Digital Deluxe Edition packs in two extra single-player and co-op maps, five pieces of sneaktastic gear, five bonus stealth suits, and five weapons, giving you extra tactical options in the campaign and co-op modes. And if that wasn’t enough, we’re including a free copy of the critically acclaimed Splinter Cell: Conviction, whose story is continued in Blacklist. Once your free code is redeemed in Ubisoft’s store, Conviction will be immediately available to play, giving you ample time to get up to speed before Blacklist’s August 20th release.
"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 GTX 660, 660 Ti, 670, 680, 760, 770 or 780 GPUs. More details on the bundle and the exclusive tech within the game are available here.
