NVIDIA releases Game Ready Driver for Fortnite Battle Royale and NVIDIA Freestyle BETA

From Press Release:

Today NVIDIA released a new Game Ready Driver for Fortnite Battle Royale.  The driver also supports NVIDIA’s newest GeForce Experience beta feature, Freestyle.

Available on or before launch day, NVIDIA Game Ready Drivers provide the best experience for GeForce gamers because NVIDIA engineers work up until the last possible minute to optimize performance and perfect gameplay.  And as an additional verification of quality, every Game Ready Driver is WHQL-certified by Microsoft.

Another important aspect of NVIDIA Game Ready drivers is that at they are often used as a delivery mechanism to add new features for our GeForce users. This Game Ready driver adds ShadowPlay Highlights support for Fortnite Battle Royale as well as support for the initial beta version of NVIDIA Freestyle.

Fortnite Battle Royale Gets ShadowPlay Highlights

ShadowPlay Highlights automatically captures your greatest gaming achievements in video and screenshot.  Integrated directly with the game, it knows precisely when that magic moment will happen — whether a boss fight or killing spree — and automatically records it using ShadowPlay technology.

ShadowPlay Highlights will be supported in Fornite Battle Royale, on Jan 10.

Additionally, this driver adds ShadowPlay Highlights support for Crossout and Elex.

NVIDIA Freestyle: New GeForce Experience Feature to Customize Your Games

The latest feature for GeForce Experience, NVIDIA Freestyle, allows you to apply post-processing filters to your games while you play. Right from the in-game overlay, you can change the look and mood of your game with tweaks to color or saturation, or apply dramatic post-process filters.

At launch there are a total of 15 filters with 38 different settings (some filters have multiple settings). They include:

  • Black and White
  • Color
  • Colorblind
  • Contrast
  • Details
  • Exposure
  • Half Tone
  • Mood
  • Night Mode
  • Retro
  • Sepia
  • Vignette
  • Depth of Field
  • Special FX
  • Adjustments

Freestyle lets you be more creative with your games. For example, you can create a retro war-themed filter for your favorite FPS or enhance color and contrast to make a game look more photorealistic.

Freestyle’s more serious uses include a colorblind mode that makes it easier of colorblind gamers to differentiate between colors. Gamers can even use night mode, which reduces blue color so users can sleep better after a night of gaming.We’ve integrated Freestyle at the driver level for seamless compatibility with games. We’re releasing the Freestyle game filters beta with support for over 100 game titles.
