GeForce Drivers Go Game Ready For Metal Gear Survive, Kingdom Come: Deliverance & More

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅29.01.2018 16:39:40

NVIDIA is back this week with yet another Game Ready update to their GeForce graphics card drivers after the post-CES lull in new game releases. The GeForce Game Ready Driver 390.77 WHQL tailors support for two major titles due for release in the near future in full or beta forms, in addition to a small number of fixed issues and improved support for a couple of older games.

On the back of a free weekend and potential up-tick in players, Korean MMO Black Desert Online has had some attention to smooth out performance on NVIDIA-powered systems. With these latest drivers the game will also support NVIDIA Ansel for extreme quality screenshots in what is already an exceptionally beautiful game.

Another older title that received a fresh look from NVIDIA's driver team is War Thunder. Described as a 'cross-platform vehicular combat MMO', it was released in late 2016 across multiple platforms, it's little surprise that it's getting the ShadowPlay Highlights treatment alongdide prior integration of Ansel and Destruction NVIDIA GameWorks features.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance however will be brand new to PC when it's released on February 13th, and so pre-launch optimisation will come as a welcome exercise for those interested in this action-oriented RPG set during in Western Europe's medieval period.

Finally, Meta Gear Survive should be in players hands on February 22nd, and with these drivers will also support ShadowPlay Highlights. Konami and NVIDIA did excellent work with optimisations for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on PC, so we expect great things performance-wise from this new survival shooter also using the Fox Engine.

As always you can download the new drivers at Abbreviated notes are available below:
