Gamescom 2017 just wrapped up and NVIDIA made a few interesting announcements during the conference. For those enjoying PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, they announced the game now fully supports ShadowPlay Highlights along with the newly released Lawbreakers. That means you can capture all your gameplay in 4K 60 FPS, with either always-on or manual saving, and built-in uploading tools.
In addition to video capture of gameplay, their Ansel screen capture tool for the artistically inclined has also been updated. Ansel now works in 25 titles, from The Witcher 3 through Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice to new genres like Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 so you can truly show that the 'injured' player lying on the turf truly did take a dive. NVIDIA reports that you will be able to capture super-resolution, 360-degree, HDR, and stereo photographs in games developed in either the Unity Engine or the Unreal Engine as Ansel will now be provided as an add-in for those game engines.
Last but not least is a giveaway. NVIDIA will be giving away 50,000 Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor game codes to GeForce Experience community members! You do have to sign up to win but once you are a member of GFE you are automagically entered to win. They will message you in app on Sept 26th to let you know if you are a winner so you can still sign up if you are interested. It will also support Ansel, if you run across a photogenic orc beheading you want to share.
As a reminder, the offer for any who purchases of select GeForce GTX 1080 Ti or 1080 GPUs, as well as systems and laptops containing the same will get Destiny 2 on the PC launch date.
