Session Name:

NVIDIA GameWorks Technologies in 'FINAL FANTASY XV', Behind the Scenes (Presented by NVIDIA)

Doing this requires detailed analysis of the game engine to come up with a list of technologies which would naturally fit into existing content. The existing game was already very high fidelity. With all the resources and excellent cooperation from Square Enix Business Division 2 we were ready to take risks and tried to utilize every single piece from GameWorks to make the fantasy become a bit more real.
