Metro: Last Light is coming out tomorrow, and Nvidia has rolled out beta drivers optimized for the post-apocalyptic shooter. The GeForce 320.14 betas are available now for 64-bit and 32-bit versions of Windows 8, 7, and Vista. Other packages for notebook users and folks running Windows XP can be found here, through the official driver download page.
Nvidia claims the 320.14 beta release delivers "up to 10% faster performance" in Metro: Last Light. Other than that, it seems users can expect the same improvements as in the GeForce 320.00 betas from last month. Those brought about a number of performance increases—some modest, others not so much—in titles like DiRT: Shodown, Tomb Raider, and StarCraft II.
Not all games get an updated beta driver all to themselves, but Metro: Last Light is a little different. In mid-April, Nvidia announced that the game would be bundled with all GeForce graphics cards from the GTX 660 on up. Cards as affordable as this $194.99 EVGA model ship with the game free of charge.
Last Light is also available to pre-order from Steam for $44.99, $5 off the regular price. Steam says the game is due to unlock in "approximately 13 hours."
