Ubisoft has announced more details in regards to the graphics of its upcoming software lineup. According to a report from VG247 on June 5, the publisher will be partnering the NVIDIA once again to provide some exclusive visual features for "Assassin's Creed Unity," "Far Cry 4," "The Crew" and "Tom Clancy's The Division." The two companies previously teamed up with the "Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag," "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist" as well as the recently-released "Watch Dogs."

Computers that are equipped with NVIDIA will be able to run the aforementioned games with several unique settings. One of the features is TXAA anti-aliasing, which should smooth out the edges enough to resemble a "Hollywood" animation. The other visual elements include DX11 tessellation, horizon-based ambient occlusion, NVIDIA PhysX technology and soft shadows. As a result, the PC version should end up being the best-looking iteration for all upcoming Ubisoft titles.

"Assassin's Creed Unity" and "The Crew" is slated to arrive later this fall for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms. "Far Cry 4" is also coming to the same platforms along with the PS3 and Xbox 360 current-generation consoles on Nov. 18. The latest "Far Cry" game got caught in some controversies recently due to the reveal of its cover art, which some fans believed to be hinting at white imperialism.

"Tom Clancy's The Division" is only coming to the PC and the two next-generation systems. The impressive looking game is currently targeting a 2015 release and will incorporate elements from the massively multiplayer online role-playing game and third-person shooting genres. A screen of the Ubisoft video game can be seen near the top side of this article (courtesy of the publisher's Facebook page).

The third-party company is going to hold a press conference on June 9 and should have several games on display during E3 2014. Along with the aforesaid games, Ubisoft also hinted that the long-awaited "Beyond Good and Evil 2" may be re-reveal during the convention. The project was first announced in 2008. A few of the Ubisoft games can be pre-ordered on Amazon.com with the following links: "Assassin's Creed Unity," "Far Cry 4," "The Crew" and "Tom Clancy's The Division."
