Mass Effect: Andromeda is set to pick up Bioware's Mass Effect series 600 years after from the original trilogy, and Nvidia is prepared for it with its latest GeForce drivers: version 378.92. Space tourists will be able to take high-resolution in-game photos thanks to full Nvidia Ansel support for the game. Andromeda supports HDR and 4K resolutions, as well, and Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is Nvidia's unsurprising favorite card to let gamers enjoy those features at speed.
The 378.92 release also includes support for Rock Band VR, the music game's first foray into the virtual reality space. Rock Band VR is an Oculus Rift-exclusive title, so HTC Vive owners are left out for the time being. The game puts the player in the shoes of a band frontman on stage in front of a crowd of fans who might cheer or boo depending on the performance.
The driver also adds support for the Dolby Vision HDR format in games, as well as updated or new SLI profiles for Dead Rising 4, Deus Ex: Breach, and Mass Effect: Andromeda. Complete release notes are available here. Gerbils can bypass all the words and head right to Nvidia's download page to grab the new release, though the update seems unlikely to improve the Mass Effect: Andromeda's uneven writing and facial animations.
