Though the overall visuals are quite a sandbox kind of element just like Minecraft, the near-fully destructible map with various vehicles looks like a core Battlefield 2042. As the title is getting too many positive reviews for the PC version, it feels quite optimized. But somehow multiple reports are claiming that BattleBit Remastered Shadowplay Not Working on Windows.

Nvidia ShadowPlay is known as Nvidia Share or Nvidia in-game overlay which basically allows screen capture, screen recording, live streaming, etc features. So, whenever you launch a game on the PC, Nvidia GeForce Experience automatically detects it & suggests the user run Nvidia Share or Shadowplay to record gameplay or take screenshots. However, multiple players are reporting that the Nvidia Shadowplay feature doesn’t work while running BattleBit Remastered on the PC.
