Arguably the biggest feature in the December update is 1080p streaming of supported PC games to your television. With a bluetooth controller, Nvidia Shield owners can play Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, BioShock Infinite, Borderlands 2, Skyrim and any of the 63 as-of-now supported PC games in all their intended 1080p, 60 frames per second glory.
In addition to the streaming, there is now a greater range of Gamepad Mapper options for customizing controls. With these new options, Nvidia Shield users can transfer any motion controls – such as tilting the device – to the thumbsticks or any other physical button on the Shield. First-perspective games can now have movement mapped to the thumbsticks, much like how other first-person games are presented on consoles.
The introduction of these new control options has necessitated the need for community curation, as Nvidia is introducing a rating and sharing system for custom control schemes alongside this update. Users can browse, rate and share custom controller-mapping profiles, which should help cut down on the time required to create and employ these setups.
