Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag PC has been developed so that it comes featuring a fully optimized version of the game that runs on GeForce GTX graphics cards. NVIDIA have made sure that those with a NVIDIA graphics card will get an Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag experience that features a wealth of NVIDIA’s advanced gaming technologies such as TXAA and more. The extra performance means more immersive gaming including life-like environments, realistic combat and spectacular, cinematic visuals.

It will feature several NVIDIA technologies in the game including:

  • God Rays which allowed Ubisoft Montreal to paint beams of light that illuminate a scene from above,
  • Horizon-based ambient occlusion + (HBAO+) for more detailed and realistic shadows around objects that obstruct rays of light,
  • Percentage-closer soft shadows (PCSS) for more lifelike contact hardening shadows,
  • Temporal anti-aliasing (TXAA) for smoother edges. With the addition of enhanced 4K textures, there’s never been a better time to take to the high seas.

Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of Content and Technology at NVIDIA stated:

NVIDIA engineers work with their Ubisoft counterparts across the globe to ensure that PC games are the best they can be – and ‘Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’ is a great example of that, We’ve integrated advanced, PC-specific technologies into the game to give mood and depth to scenes and bring buildings and landscapes to life. The end result is an unparalleled visual treat, and set to be an absolute PC blockbuster.

Those who purchase  NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN, 780 Ti, 780, 770, 760, 660, 670, 680, and 690 from participating retailers and e-tailers will receive a complimentary copy of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag in addition to Ubisoft’s other blockbuster title, Splinter Cell Blacklist.
