Yesterday, Activision surprised all of us by announcing Call of Duty: Warzone, a stand-alone battle royale game which is an offshoot of Modern Warfare. The game is free to play on all platforms, and NVIDIA will release Geforce Drivers aimed at maximizing in-game performance. One of the additions in the driver update will be the implementation of NVIDIA Highlights found in Shadowplay.
As NVIDIA has revealed, Call of Duty Warzone will support Shadowplay highlight, which automatically records and saves your glorious kill streaks. We’ve seen the feature pop up before in games like Metro Exodus, and you can check out the full list here. It’s a really nifty feature that will come in handy in a battle royale game like this. Previously, both Fortnite and PUBG have supported NVIDIA highlights.
NVIDIA added the following regarding the feature in their blog post:
Activision has also revealed the system requirements on PC to play the game:
The revealed system requirements don’t really ask for much, as the game is pretty well optimized anyway. At medium settings, you should be able to reach 60fps, as the engine it’s based on was also used in Modern Warfare. And that game was targeting 60fps on a standard PS4!
Call of Duty Warzone goes live at 12 pm PDT worldwide for players who don’t own Modern Warfare. While the 2019 reboot featured RTX implementation, the new battle royale does not. After all, it does make sense as it’s a really competitive game, where performance matters more than visuals.
You can download the new NVIDIA Geforce game ready drivers here or directly inside the Geforce Experience App.
