GeForce owners, get ready for a deluge of holiday driver updates. Nvidia is kicking things off today with the release of the 358.87 WHQL driver for Call of Duty: Black Ops III. The company is also promising a series of "Game Ready" drivers ahead of or on launch day for a bunch of major titles. Expect driver updates for each of these games and more:
- Assassin’s Creed Syndicate
- Call of Duty Black Ops III
- Civilization Online
- Fallout 4
- Just Cause 3
- Monster Hunter Online
- RollerCoaster Tycoon World
- StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void
- Star Wars Battlefront
- Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
- War Thunder
Each of these "Game Ready" drivers is tuned and refined "until the 11th hour," according to Nvidia, and they'll all be WHQL-certified, as well. If smooth gameplay wasn't incentive enough, the company will be offering prizes like games, graphics cards, and Shield Android TV boxes to registered GeForce Experience users who keep current on driver updates.
As for the 358.87 driver itself, Nvidia is including updated SLI profiles for games like Act of Aggression, NBA 2K16, StarCraft II, Sword Coast Legends, and Triad Wars. Windows 10 users also get SLI support for ShadowPlay and GameStream, as well as "VR direct mode queued" operation for GameWorks VR. You can download the driver direct from Nvidia or run an update check in GeForce Experience.
