Ubisoft has revealed an extension of partnership with GPU manufacturer Nvidia, promising further PC exclusive enhancements in the form of Nvidia's GameWorks program.
Included in the partnership are four games; Assassin's Creed: Unity, Tom Clancy's The Division, Far Cry 4 and The Crew. Nvidia's GameWorks team previously worked with Ubisoft to help polish the PC versions of Assassin's Creed 4 and Watch Dogs, with graphical tricks such as TXAA anti-aliasing, horizon-based ambient occlusion, DX11 tessellation and Nvidia PhysX.
The company partnership comes after a recent falling out between graphics manufacturers Nvidia and AMD, where AMD alleged that the GameWorks partnership blocked optimisation for Ubisoft's recent Watch Dogs title on PC. Nvidia threw back the claim, stating that they never restricted access to game code as part of its agreements. "We don't and we never have restricted anyone from getting access as part of our agreements. Not with Watch Dogs and not with any other titles," Nvidia's engineering director Cem Cebenoyan told Forbes.
Ubisoft is expected to reveal more on Assassin's Creed: Unity and Far Cry 4 at E3 2014 this year, though we also hope to hear more on The Division and The Crew. For now you can check out today's rather short teaser of The Division footage below while we count down until next week.
