NVIDIA GeForce Now Game Ready For Final Fantasy XV

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅28.02.2018 00:05:24

Driver updates are coming thick and fast this month, despite February having something of a reputation for being a dead period for PC gaming. The latest and possibly final update is NVIDIA's latest Game Ready drivers, released alongside Final Fantasy XV's playable demo and ahead of the full game's March debut.

The GeForce Game Ready Driver 391.01 WHQL driver is clearly intended to accompany the newly released Final Fantasy XV playable demo, itself intended to give prospective players of the full game a taste of expected in-game features and performance. As a WHQL release the driver has also undergone Microsoft's validation process, which NVIDIA applies to their Game Ready drivers as a matter of course.

These drivers are also advertised as providing the optimal experience for three additional games: PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Warhammer: Vermintide 2, and World of Tanks 1.0. The first of these has something of a reputation for being a little unstable despite its popularity, so every improvement will be more than welcome.

In addition to the above optimisations the driver addresses issues specific to BeamNG and Call Of Duty WWII, a Cold Boot multi-monitor bug, and isolated OpenGL crashes with 900-series GPUs.

As always you can download the latest drivers at Geforce.com/drivers or via the GeForce Experience app. The drivers are compatible with NVIDIA's GPU catalogue going back to at least the 600-series (AKA Kepler), and are compatible with 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows 10 and 7.
