NVIDIA Game-Ready Driver Released for Final Fantasy XV, PUBG, Vermintide 2

Enjoy what will likely not be the final of the fantasies - the way it’s meant to be played.


The PC release of Final Fantasy is upon us. The game gets a playable demo on Steam today, giving prospective buyers a first-hand look at what to expect from the biggest Final Fantasy game to ever grace the PC. Since the PC version of the game was announced last year, Square Enix has been promising a juggernaut that will leverage the power that PCs are capable of. The development team partnered up with NVIDIA and have been hyping up the release for months. With the official release date in sight, NVIDIA has released its newest Game-Ready driver, version 391.01, and it promises to enhance your androgynous teen haircuts and convertible rides.

In addition to optimizations for Square-Enix’s RPG, the new driver boasts up to a 7% performance improvement for PUBG for users playing at 4K resolution. Unlisted enhancements are also included for Warhammer Vermintide 2 (which recently got a closed beta). The full listing of bug fixes and known issues is listed as follows:
