Back in October, Nvidia released an update to its handheld gaming console – the Shield. This update brought a couple of features to the console that helped it stream PC games into the device.

Today a new update comes to the Shield that delivers improvements to 720p, 60 fps Console Mode in addition to official support for a number of new games. But probably the most exciting new feature coming with the update is support for 1080p, 60fps Gaming Console Mode.

Of course there are just a small number of games that will have 1080p support. These include Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Batman: Arkham Origins, Battlefield 4, BioShock Infinite, Borderlands2, Crysis 3 and the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, with additional titles added on a weekly basis.

The update will also improve the console’s gamepad mapper, which will now remap gyroscope and motion-based controls in addition to the touchscreen commands that were supported during the last update.
