Nvidia and Ubisoft form PC alliance; Splinter Cell bundles on the way

The PC giant will bundle Ubisoft's Q4 releases with its latest hardware.

Nvidia will support the release of Splinter Cell: Blacklist with a series of graphics card bundles following the title's release on August 23rd.

Consumers who purchase any card from Nvidia's GTX 600 and 700 series from selected retailers will also get their hands on the Digital Deluxe Edition of Blacklist.

The digital copy includes Blacklist, in addition to two additional single-player and co-op maps, five extra weapons, stealth suits and equipment. The bundle will also include 2009's Splinter Cell: Conviction.

Nvidia says it is working closely with Ubisoft's development studios to incorporate its graphics technologies into the publisher's titles, including Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Watch Dogs.

“The PC remains one of the world’s most popular gaming platforms, and we’re committed to offering PC players the best possible experience with our games,” said Geoffroy Sardin, chief EMEA marketing and sales officer at Ubisoft.

Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of content and technoogy at Nvidia, added: "PC gaming is stronger than ever and Ubisoft understands that PC gamers demand a truly elite experience – the best resolutions, the smoothest frame rates and the latest gaming breakthroughs."

No word on when, or if, these other titles will also be introduced to hardware bundles anytime soon, but MCV has reached out to Nvidia for clarification.
