Nvidia has posted a new set of GeForce Game Ready drivers. Version 368.39 provides optimizations for Mirror's Edge Catalyst, which launches later today, and Edge of Nowhere, a new Oculus Rift title. The drivers also add support for the much-anticipated GeForce GTX 1070.
Mirror's Edge Catalyst is a prequel to the popular 2008 parkour game. The game includes some "hyper settings" that purportedly offer dramatic improvements in environmental detail, shadows, reflections, and image-based lighting. To play at 60 frames per second with those settings at 2560x1440, Nvidia says that you'll need its new GeForce GTX 1080. Nvidia's notes indicate a problem running Mirror's Edge Catalyst with an SLI setup on Windows 8.1, so keep an eye on the customer service forum if this issue might apply to you.
Edge of Nowhere is an Oculus Rift title inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft. Developed by Insomniac Games, Edge of Nowhere sends you to Antarctica to learn what happened to a missing expedition. Early reviews range from glowing to scathing. Some praise the game's immersive VR, while others lament the linear levels and relatively short play time.
Finally, the 368.39 drivers are ready for the imminent launch of the GeForce GTX 1070. Nvidia claims that it'll be released on Friday. The 368.39 drivers are available through this direct link or through Nvidia's GeForce Experience application.
