NVIDIA Ansel and NVIDIA Highlights are coming to Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Learn more in this article, which also includes 4K PC gameplay footage, and the world's first NVIDIA Ansel screenshots

In April we revealed that we’re collaborating with Square Enix, Eidos-Montréal, Crystal Dynamics, and Nixxes, to craft the best possible PC experience for Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Today, at E3 2018 in Los Angeles, we’re unveiling NVIDIA Ansel and NVIDIA Highlights integrations for the game, releasing the world’s first 4K PC gameplay footage, sharing several NVIDIA Ansel screenshots, and giving the world’s media the opportunity to play the PC version of Shadow of the Tomb Raider exclusively at NVIDIA’s suite. For all the details, keep on reading.

Capture Stunning Screenshots With NVIDIA Ansel

NVIDIA Ansel enables GeForce GTX gamers playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider to hit Alt+F2 at almost any moment to pause the action, to frame and capture their own unique screenshots in the game’s beautifully-rendered world.

Additional tools, options and stackable filters give users innumerable ways to modify the scene, and once the in-game photo is snapped it can be quickly and easily shared to Shot With GeForce, our NVIDIA Ansel photo-sharing website. Or to social media, Google Photos, and Imgur.

To demonstrate, here are several world exclusive 4K NVIDIA Ansel Shadow of the Tomb Raiderscreenshots, taken from a work-in-progress version of the game:

Automatically Capture Your Best Moments With NVIDIA Highlights

As you traverse Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s expansive world, and complete key objectives, your best moments will be automatically captured as a series of easily-shared video clips by NVIDIA Highlights’ ShadowPlay-powered technology.

Once you’ve finished playing for the day you’ll be able to review your clips, and before you share any you particularly like to Facebook, YouTube or other sites, you can edit, apply titles, add on-screen text, and more.

Alternatively, use ShadowPlay’s low-impact always-on recording functionality to capture or stream all of your Shadow of the Tomb Raider gameplay. And as with Highlights, you’ll have numerous options for editing, tweaking and enhancing your gameplay before you share.
