Project CARS 2 And Total War: WARHAMMER II Game Ready Driver Released
Our new GeForce Game Ready 385.69 WHQL drivers are optimised for the Call of Duty: WWII open beta, EVE: Valkyrie - Warzone, FIFA 18, Forza Motorsport 7, From Other Suns' open beta, Project CARS 2, Raiders of the Broken Planet, Star Wars Battlefront 2's open beta, and Total War: WARHAMMER II.

Game Ready For Project CARS 2
If realistic sim racing is your jam, the well-reviewed Project CARS 2 may be the game for you. It includes over 180 cars, 46 tracks with over 120 layouts, day-night racing, dynamic weather that impacts handling, and much more. For details, check out this article, the official website, and our video below.
With over 20 cars on track at once, all rendered at ridiculous detail levels, plus luscious environments, astounding effects, and the aforementioned dynamic weather, Project CARS 2 pushes PCs to the limit when graphical presets are on High or above. Car numbers and visuals can of course be turned down, but if you want the full experience developer Slightly Mad Studios recommends a GeForce GTX 1080, an i7-6700K, and 16GB of RAM.
In our own testing, we found the GeForce GTX 1070 delivered an excellent experience at a High level detail, running at over 100 frames per second on average, giving gamers plenty of headroom to up the resolution or increase graphical fidelity:
For info on the minimum and average frame rates recorded in our testing, at each resolution, head on over to our Project CARS 2 Recommended GPU article. And for full support of the game's 4K, 12K Surround, HDR and GameStream features, download and install the new Game Ready drivers.
Game Ready For The Call of Duty: WWII PC Open Beta
On 29th September PC gamers on Steam will get their first taste of Call of Duty: WWII, thanks to a multiplayer open beta that will be available through Steam until October 2nd.
NVIDIA works hard to make every game’s first impression a good one, even if the game is still in development. With that in mind, today’s Game Ready driver includes support for the Call of Duty: WWII open beta, ensuring the best possible experience on GeForce GTX graphics cards. And as the game evolves with new content and features, so will our drivers, even post-release, always giving GeForce GTX gamers a fast, smooth, optimised experience.
Game Ready For EVE: Valkyrie - Warzone
CCP's spaceship shooter, EVE: Valkyrie, has been delighting dogfighting PvP fans in VR for over a year. Now, it's available to non-VR gamers, too, with the release of EVE: Valkyrie - Warzone, which features cross-platform play between PC, PC VR HMD, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 4 VR players.
Earlier this year, EVE: Valkyrie added several NVIDIA technologies, dramatically improving image quality and performance. With the release of Warzone, these technologies are now available for desktop users, too, enhancing lighting and anti-aliasing, and accelerating performance by up to 51% with a technology called Multi-Res Shading:
And with today's Game Ready driver you'll get the fastest, smoothest EVE: Valkyrie - Warzone experience possible, whether you're playing on a monitor or in VR.

Developed on DICE's Frostbite 3 engine, FIFA 18 is extremely scalable, running at lightning speeds on today's hardware, and at playable framerates on the seven year-old GeForce GTX 460 GPU requested by the official system requirements, which is still supported by our Game Ready drivers.
