PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is widely considered as the hottest game of 2017, and it’s still rapidly growing in terms of popularity and average player count. Dubbed as PUBG, the game despite being in “Early Access”, managed to sell 7 million copies, as recently announced by the developer and publisher, Bluehole Studios. At Gamescom 2017, NVIDIA teamed up with Bluehole to bring what’s called as “ShadowPlay Highlights” for all the gamers who own a GeForce GTX GPU. This game-changing feature lets you automatically record and save every kills, knockouts, deaths and various other highlights within the game. So far, users either had to record the whole game manually or make use of NVIDIA’s Instant Replay to record the last 5 to 20 minutes of the gameplay, which includes the unnecessary boring parts as well. With ShadowPlay Highlights, that’s not really the case as the feature only records the most exciting parts of the game, that can be easily clipped together to create a montage later on, with the help of any simple video editing software. Interested already? Alright, let’s take a look at how to enable NVIDIA ShadowPlay Highlights in PUBG:
