NVIDIA has updated their drivers to version 344.65 drivers and they're available now. These are Game Ready drivers for Assassin's Creed: Unity, and they're ready one week in advance of the game's launch. This is really a great way of doing things on the part of NVIDIA, as users can download the driver and be ready to play as soon as the game unlocks on Steam.

Of course this new driver comes less than a week after the previous update, which was for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The holiday gaming deluge is in full effect, and I suspect we'll see quite a few more "Game Ready" driver updates between now and the new year.

As usual, these drivers include all of the previous optimizations from the 343 series, including DSR support for Fermi and Kepler GPUs and Game Ready optimizations for Civilization: Beyond Earth, Lords of the Fallen, Elite: Dangerous, and various other gaming profile updates. The full release notes (PDF) are basically unchanged from the last update, with the exception of information on Assassin's Creed: Unity.

In addition to the new drivers, GeForce Experience also received an update this morning, bringing it to version 2.1.4.0. The release notes on the download page indicate this is a relatively minor update, but news that support has been added for streaming to SHIELD devices running Android Lollipop indicates that we are that much closer to the promised Android 5.0 update rolling out to SHIELD.

    Probably Nvidia program the game. What do you think? Reply

    Driver release notes should identify any SLI profiles it adds. Reply

    Except Unity is not on Steam lol. Ubisoft pulled FC4, The Crew, And Unity from the store. You have to buy it retail, grab a digital copy off of uPlay, or pirate it. most people will choose the latter because of how hard ubi has made it to buy their games. Reply

    No, they only pulled them all here in the UK. Refuse to buy any UBISOFT games as they keep doing stuff like this. Reply

    Steam version of ubisoft games needed Uplay to boot and validate the key anyway. I didn't bother to buy AC4 on steam, i went directly on uplay. Of hard is it to add an extra shortcut on your desktop? Reply

    And this is why I don't buy Ubisoft games on PC (save for the handful they've put on GOG). :-/ Reply
