When the Nvidia Shield first launched last month, it came with a bunch of notable features, including the ability to broadcast Android gameplay onto a television. Now, the device is working a different way, this time with PC games.
A new downloadable update for the device now provides the opportunity to broadcast PC games on a television with 1080p resolution. In addition, 720p streaming mode has some notable improvements, and players can also use the new Gamepad Mapper feature. This allows them to set up gameplay options however they wish on the Shield controller.
Some 63 games currently support the game streaming service, including popular hits like Batman: Arkham Origins, Borderlands 2 and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, but many others are expected to be compatible soon, with another possible update.
The update can be downloaded now for free of charge. Nvidia Shield is available in retailers nationwide.
