Players of the unknown are widely considered as the hottest game of 2017, and it is still growing rapidly in the context of popularity and average player count. Dubbed in the form of PUBG, despite being in “Initial Access”, the game managed to sell 7 million copies, as announced by the developer and publisher recently, Bluhole Studios. In GameCom 2017, NVIDIA has worked closely with Bluhole, which is called “Shadowplay Highlights” for all the gamers, who owns the GeForce GTX GPU. This game changing feature allows you to automatically record and save every beat, knockout, death and other highlights in the game. So far, users had to manually record the whole game or to use the immediate replay of NVIDIA to record the last 5 to 20 minutes of the gameplay, which also included unnecessary boring parts. With Shadeplay Highlights, this is not really the case because the feature only records the most exciting parts of the game, which can later be easily prepared with the help of any simple video editing software, a montage.
