GAMESCOM 2017: Bluehole and Nvidia bring ShadowPlay Highlights to PUBG

At an Nvidia event at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany,the developers of hit game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds have revealed an update that’ll integrate with Nvidia’s ShadowPlay Highlights system.

The integration is available now, and should kick in the next time you boot up Steam, and will allow players to automatically capture their best PUBG moments. This means whenever you get a kill, die, win a match or get a knockout, either on yourself or on enemies, ShadowPlay Highlight will save a gameplay clip of the action.

“PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is known for delivering intense, fast-paced action, and for not taking things too seriously,” said C.H. Kim, VP & executive producer at Bluehole. “Giving our players the ability to automatically capture that fun and easily share it with friends will increase our presence on social media and introduce PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds to even more gamers.”

It should prove to be a real boon for content creators, as previously even with ShadowPlay, you would need to remember to save your clips after something amazing happened. Here, when you enter the lobby for a game you’ll be asked by GeForce Experience if you want to enabled ShadowPlay Highlights. Click yes, and highlights will be saved. No fuss, no mess.

There’s other bits in the new update, including better post processing via the introduction of HBAO+. Check Nvidia’s post for full details, and if you want to take advantage of the feature make sure GeForce Experience 3.8 or later is installed, and PUBG is up to date.
