Watch Dogs gets chummy with Nvidia in a new tech trailer

Watch Dogs Nvidia trailer

Watch Dogs is now out; here’s our Watch Dogs review.

Watch Dogs looks rather easy on the eyes, doesn’t it? In the latest trailer for the open world action hacking game, lead PC engineer Paul Glassi goes over the special graphical features the game’s partnership with Nvidia has provided. 

“During the last years of development, we have worked closely with Nvidia in order to create the most vivid and breathtaking Chicago possible for the PC version of Watch Dogs,” says Glassi.

The trailer goes over the benefits of Nvidia’s HBAO+, creating richer and more realistic shadows, and TXAA, reducing the temporal aliasing, where objects like fences or grass flicker when the screen is moving.

The Windy City certainly looks striking.

These good looks come at a cost, though. The recommended specs are pretty high, requiring an i7 processor, a 2GB graphics card and 8GB of RAM.
