Nvidia announced today a new Freestyle feature for its GeForce Experience software allowing players to add more than 35 image filters to whatever game they’re playing.

Think of it like the filters on Instagram, but for gaming; players will be able to use sepia or retro post-processing filters, among a variety of others while in-game. Nvidia confirmed on its blog that Freestyle will allow players to select from “15 filters with 38 different settings” that can be applied to more than 100 games selected for the beta.

This means players will be able to give the game they’re playing a different overall look. Call of Duty: World War II, for example, could be played entirely with a sepia overtone, possibly giving the game a different feel. The full list of filters include:

  • Black and White
  • Exposure
  • Sepia
  • Color
  • Half Tone
  • Vignette
  • Colorblind
  • Mood
  • Depth of Field
  • Contrast
  • Night Mode
  • Special FX
  • Details
  • Retro
  • Adjustments

Nvidia also announced that Freestyle will be able to help colorblind players distinguish between certain color palettes while playing the selected games.

“Freestyle’s more serious uses include a colorblind mode that makes it easier for colorblind gamers to differentiate between colors,” the blog post reads. “Gamers can even use night mode, which reduces blue color so users can sleep better after a night of gaming.”

The list of games the Freestyle feature supports can be seen on this list. Freestyle game filters will be available to download on Jan. 9. In order to download the updated feature, Nvidia has listed step-by-step instructions. According to a press release, players will have to, “download the latest GeForce Experience app (release 3.12) and Game Ready Driver (release 390), then enable Experimental Features from within GeForce Experience settings.”
