GeForce Experience At GDC 2018: Call of Duty: WWII, Tekken 7 and Others Add NVIDIA Highlights; Star Wars Battlefront II Adds Ansel; and Highlights Are Now Shareable As GIFs
GeForce Experience is a companion application for GeForce GPUs that makes PC gaming accessible and effortless by optimizing game settings, updating drivers, and enabling you to capture and share gameplay with just a few clicks. Earlier this year, GeForce Experience’s functionality expanded with the addition of the game-changing Freestyle, new features for NVIDIA Ansel, and the addition of NVIDIA Highlights to Fortnite Battle Royale, one of the year’s most popular games.
Today, we’re launching “Shot with GeForce”, a new website where you can host and share all your Ansel in-game photos; we’re kicking-off a NVIDIA Ansel contest with thousands of dollars-worth of prizes; we’re announcing that Call of Duty: WWII, Dying Light: Bad Blood, Escape From Tarkov, and Tekken 7 have added NVIDIA Highlights; we’re revealing that Star WarsTM BattlefrontTM II and other games have added NVIDIA Ansel; and we’re releasing GeForce Experience 3.13.1, which adds new community-requested features to NVIDIA Highlights.
For details on each announcement, keep on reading.
Call of Duty: WWII, One Of Several New Games Enlisting NVIDIA Highlights
Call of Duty: WWII is adding NVIDIA Highlights in the near future in a new game update, enabling players with GeForce GTX graphics cards to automatically capture and save clips of their best exploits. To date, over half a billion Highlights have been recorded in games with NVIDIA Highlights, and soon fans of Call of Duty: WWII and several other games can get in on the fun.
To enable this fan-favorite feature in Call of Duty: WWII, download and install the game update when it's released, along with our latest driver and the newest version of GeForce Experience. When you load the game, you’ll be prompted to activate NVIDIA Highlights, and from that point forward it can be set to automatically record killcams and round-ending highlights, such as 'final kill' and 'play of the game'.
To share your favorite clips after a multiplayer session, simply press Alt+Z and head to the Gallery, where you can pick which videos to save, share or delete. Alternatively, go to the Settings > ShadowPlay menu in Call of Duty: WWII to review clips from in-game.
