Nvidia promises Game Ready drivers for a dozen holiday games

Call Of Duty Black Ops 3

Nvidia's new driver, version 358.87 (download link), is out just in time for the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops III this week. As well as BlOps 3, it has also added "Game Ready" support for Anno 2205, and the new War Thunder patch with GameWorks.

Nvidia has also said that it will be adding Game Ready driver support "on or before launch day for the top titles this holiday season." The game's included in this are:

  • Civilization Online
  • Fallout 4
  • Just Cause 3
  • Monster Hunter Online
  • Overwatch
  • Just Cause 3
  • RollerCoaster Tycoon World
  • StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void
  • Star Wars: Battlefront
  • Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege
  • War Thunder

Release 358 has added SLI support for ShadowPlay and GameStream in Windows 10, as well as Stereo support for DirectX 12 SLI and 3D Surround. ShadowPlay is Nvidia's screen recording utility, and GameStream is streaming tech that allows you to pipe a PC game to a GameStream-capable box connected to your TV over WiFi.

The new driver has also added a number of bug fixes related to performance drops and crashes for Windows 10, 8, and 7. Known issues on Windows 10 still include stuttering and flickering in the newly released version of Batman: Arkham Knight.
