The new capture method will help gamers in the long run.

The newly introduced launcher ultimately puts existing alternatives, such as NVIDIA Shadowplay, to rest, permitting the player to make use of fewer resources available on their hardware by capturing them within the game launcher itself.

Using it remains child play, as once turned on, your gameplay will be automatically captured in the background as you go on to play. Alternatively, the player can also make use of a hotkey to manually turn on the recording.

Other quality-of-life elements include different markers throughout the whole timeline, added either manually or by the game itself. An example could be a marker added while running Counter-Strike 2, showcasing the timeframe when the bomb was planted on site or when a kill was done.

The said timeline will also be split into different sections, distinguished by their appearance and indicating what state the game was in at the time, such as sitting in the lobby, browsing the menu, or the actual gameplay. There will also be navigation controls available, allowing the viewer to jump between the events of the gameplay more efficiently.
