Experience ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops III,’ VR, DirectX 12,  SHIELD and More at Gamescom

by Ben Berraondo

Call of Duty Black Ops III multiplayer. NVIDIA G-Sync displays. The latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPUS. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. New VR gear from HTC and Oculus. And a stage packed with publishers and partners showcasing great new gaming titles and hardware.

We’re going big this week at Gamescom, the world’s biggest gathering of gamers, in Cologne. And our booth at C40/B41 in Hall 8 is smack in the middle of it.

Visitors to the booth will be among the first to get hands-on with the multiplayer mode in Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops III. It’s the  franchise’s deepest experience to date. Look for a new fluid chain-based movement system, specialist characters with unique weapons and abilities, and new customization tools.

Expect anything: last year one fan proposed to his girlfriend on our stage at Gamescom.

Gamers will soak up the multiplayer action on 4K NVIDIA G-SYNC panels provided by Acer and powered our NVIDIA GeForce TITAN X GPUs in SLI.  And fans who stop by the booth and play will get a code to join the Call of Duty: Black Ops III multiplayer beta kicking off later this month..

Another highlight: Ubisoft’s much anticipated Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. The latest game in the Tom Clancy franchise offers intense team-based tactical combat. Visitors to our booth can  try out a brand new game mode powered by our NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti GPU and in the process get invited to join the closed beta that begins soon.

Also on offer at the booth: the European debut our NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV device, which offers 4K capabilities, streaming and the latest Android games.

We've said it before and we'll say it again, we have the best fans in the world.
