Ubisoft Montreal's open-world title, Watch Dogs, will receive PC-exclusive features from Nvidia as part of its recent "alliance" with Ubisoft, the company announced on its official blog.

Last week, Nvidia and Ubisoft announced a partnership during Gamescom where upcoming Ubisoft titles for Windows PC will receive Nvidia-developed effects and features, such as DirectX 11-powered Tessellation. Watch Dogs joins Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist and Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag in the Ubisoft and Nvidia PC-exclusive campaign.

Details about what features Watch Dogs will receive under the alliance were not mentioned by Nvidia, however, the company is expected to reveal more details "in the coming months." Under the campaign, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist will launch with TXAA, HBAO+ and full Nvidia SLI support.

Watch Dogs is slated to release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Windows PC on Nov. 19 with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release dates yet to be confirmed.
