Assassin's Creed Unity on PC gets some graphics 'optimizations' from Nvidia cards

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

A new video of Assassin's Creed Unity's PC version shows what graphical perks Nvidia graphics cards will bring to the game, provided your personal computer is up to the task of running it.

Ubisoft highlights some GeForce GTX-specific features in the above video, including HBAO+, horizon based ambient occlusion, which improves shadows and adds more realistic occlusion; temporal anti-aliasing, for reduced flicker and smoother images; percentage-closer soft shadows, for interactive real-time shadows and softer, more natural edges; and DirectX tessellation.

There's also Nvidia Shield support, if you happen to own one of Nvidia's portable gaming devices.

Assassin's Creed Unity hits Windows PC on Nov. 11 alongside the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version.
