"By partnering with Microsoft, our team believes that we will be able to accelerate console development, while maintaining quality across all platforms, as well as giving us access to vast sales, marketing and publishing resources that will help us reach new fans to welcome to the PLAYERUNKNOWN's Battlegrounds universe".

Nvidia's presentation at Gamescom was packed full of little gifts, but one that's particularly exciting is that ShadowPlay Highlights is now available in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Starting with nothing, players must fight to locate weapons and supplies in a battle to be the lone survivor.
