Watch Dogs PC trailer shows how Nvidia powers its graphics

Ubisoft shared a new trailer for Watch Dogs this week detailing how Nvidia's hardware has helped the developers create a more immersive experience with more powerful graphics.

In the video above, lead engineer Paul Vlasie details how the game — shown running with Nvidia's HBAO Plus light and shadow system and Nvidia's TXAA anti-aliasing technology — benefits from these additions. The PC version of Watch Dogs will exclusively feature these graphical additions, thanks to Ubisoft working closely with Nvidia.

"By working with Nvidia we really want to make sure PC gamers will be able to enjoy and explore the most realistic and visually stunning world environment ever created, the Windy City like you've never seen it before," Vlasie says in the video.

Watch Dogs will launch on May 27 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. A Wii U version is also in development and will launch at a later date. Recently, GameStop leaked a listing for the game's season pass, which reportedly will include an additional playable character.
