Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag will feature several NVIDIA Technologies such as God Rays which allowed Ubisoft Montreal to paint beams of light that illuminate a scene from above, horizon-based ambient occlusion + enabled more detailed and realistic shadows around objects that obstruct rays of light. Percentage-closer soft shadows for a more lifelike contact hardening shadows, and temporal anti-aliasing for smoother edges.

With the addition of enhanced 4K textures, there’s never been a better time to take to the high seas.
