GeForce Experience to add 'Freestyle' filters, ShadowPlay Highlights coming to Fortnite

In an announcement at CES, Nvidia has shared some information on upcoming enhancements that will soon make their way into the company's GeForce Experience software.

While PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds picked up some last minute graphics drivers optimizations from Nvidia towards the end up last month to coincide with the title's 1.0 release on PC, the game has for some time included support for ShadowPlay Highlights. This feature allows clips to be automatically captured for later review during gameplay to capture significant events such as dispatching a foe, meeting your demise, or, if you're lucky, nabbing that chicken dinner. Now, on January 10, Fortnite Battle Royale will pick up in-game Highlights support amongst other games which include Crossout and Elex.

Also making its way into GeForce experience is a new Freestyle feature which brings a range of Instagram-style picture effects that can "change the look and mood of your game with tweaks to color or saturation, or apply dramatic post-process filters". While many of the available filters and settings may help to add some flair to gameplay, there's also a colorblind mode designed to help those with colorblindness better distinguish colors, and a night mode that cuts down on blue light to facilitate improved sleep. Freestyle will initially be released into beta with support for over 100 games.

Nvidia also took the opportunity to improve its in-game camera solution, Ansel. Along with a refined interface, it too has picked up a range of new graphics filters that can be applied simultaneously to captured 360-degree images that can then be shared via smartphone, PC, or VR headset.

Ansel and the Freestyle enhancements will become available on January 9 in the forthcoming 3.12 release of GeForce Experience and version 390 of its GeForce graphics drivers.
