Nvidia Closes $5 Million Deal with Ubisoft

Maximum PC Staff

Watch Dogs and Assassin's Creed 4 go green

Watch Dogs is shaping up to be a huge game and Nvidia seems to agree. They’ve spent around $5 million to finalize a deal with Ubisoft to give Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed 4 PC-exclusive effects and features.

If you’re holding out for Watch Dogs or Assassin’s Creed 4 on a PC running an Nvidia card, this is great news. Expect better performance and maybe even 4K textures. We know that we’re looking forward to Watch Dogs after seeing the amazing DedSec trailer at Gamescom 2013.

Fudzilla reports through anonymous industry sources that AMD was interested in an Ubisoft deal as well, but dropped out in favor of a large Battlefield 4 deal with EA. Fudzilla's original news post lists Assassin's Creed 5, but we assume the deal involves Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag based on this Nvidia blog post from August that specifically names the fourth game as "in the [Nvidia] alliance." DICE, developer of Battlefield 4, has already promised to patch AMD’s Mantle API into the game sometime in December.
