It seems like HDR and SLI support for games were the big deal at Gamescom this year, with NVIDIA also announcing it has been working closely with Monolith and their upcoming game Middle-earth: Shadow of War.


The collaboration was announced by Monolith VP, Michael de Plater, during NVIDIA's own Gamescom 2017 conference. We now know that Monolith and NVIDIA have worked on PC specific features for Shadow of War, including SLI and HDR support as well as NVIDIA's Ansel.

NVIDIA's own blog post states: "Our full arsenal of development resources - including visual effects libraries, developer tools, research papers, source code samples and more - is at Monolith's disposal. Our team, made up of more than 300 visual effects engineers, is lending its expertise in game development to the project and helping Monolith add the latest in graphics technologies to the game".

Middle-earth: Shadow of War will drop on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC on October 10.
