Plus, for those playing Fortnite and its Battle Royale mode, ShadowPlay Highlights have been added in so you can capture the most epic moments in your match.

"Indeed, Nvidia claims Freestyle is mostly meant to serve as an outlet for creativity, citing examples like "[creating] a retro war-themed filter for your favorite FPS or [enhancing] color and contrast to make a game look more photorealistic" as possible uses for the new feature. Right from the in-game overlay, you can change the look and mood of your game with tweaks to color or saturation, or apply dramatic post-process filters.

At launch there are a total of 15 filters with 38 different settings (some filters have multiple settings).

GeForce Now, Nvidia's cloud gaming service that promises to enable PC gaming on low-end hardware, is now in open beta testing on the PC.

"All patching, game configuring and driver updating is handled automatically by the GeForce Now infrastructure, and games take just 30 seconds to install", Nvidia said. For starters, NVIDIA is rolling out what it calls Big Format Gaming Displays (BFGD), where these massive screens feature G-SYNC and SHIELD streaming technology for the ultimate experience. The free software is now capable of running more than 160 games at maximum visual settings, at up to 120 fps. For example, you can create a retro war-themed filter for your favorite FPS or enhance color and contrast to make a game look more photorealistic.

Over recent times our phones and Windows 10 have added night modes which reduces blue color to reduce eye strain as you game well into the night and Nvidia are also including night mode, which they believe will help you sleep better after a night of gaming. Nvidia says it has "integrated Freestyle at the driver level for seamless compatibility with games".

Freestyle is set to debut on January 9 with support for as many as 100 titles, expanding to a larger number in the near future. Crossout and Elex are also receiving ShadowPlay Highlights, too. This makes it possible for GeForce NOW to stream games with settings and frame rates that exceed what is possible on most PC laptops, underpowered desktop PCs or even to content-deprived Macs.

You need to enable "Enable Experimental Features" in the GeForce Experience client after driver installation to enable the feature.
