Watch Dogs to get PC-exclusive effects

Watch Dogs

NVIDIA and Ubisoft form technical alliance to enhance anticipated cyber warfare game.

Ubisoft’s much anticipated Watch Dogs will receive a significant technical boost to its PC release following an alliance between the publisher and hardware specialist NVIDIA.

The deal, signed at GamesCom 2013, covered PC ports of Assassin’s Creed IV: Back Flag and Splinter Cell: Blacklist and now includes the next-gen title Watch Dogs, with all receiving exclusive enhancements.

"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," commented Tony Key, SVP 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."

Watch Dogs is an open-world action-adventure title in which the gamer must solve problems and combat enemies by hacking into various systems, retrieving information or using the environment to tip combat in his or her favour.

Earlier this month, Ubisoft penned an agreement with Sony to develop a tie-in film for the PlayStation 4 title.
