NVIDIA and Ubisoft have teamed up for a new gaming development partnership that will give consumers who purchase new NVIDIA desktop GPUs or gaming laptops a free video game. NVIDIA also is promoting its GameWorks technologies, including HBAO+ used for realistic shadows, TXAA for smoothness, and 4K support, which developers can include in future video games.
The "Pick Your Path" promotion allows gamers who purchase a new GeForce GTX GPU, from the GeForce GTX 980, 970, 780 Ti, or 780 video cards - or a gaming laptop with GeForce GTX 980M or 980M - will receive a free copy of Assassin's Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, or The Crew.
"NVIDIA has worked hard, hand-in-hand with our development teams, to help provide the best experience for our PC players," said Jean-Francois St. Amour, Ubisoft Montreal Lead Graphics Programmer, in a press statement. "Their support and insight is even more important now, as we make a big technological leap into the next-generation of Assassin's Creed games."
