Nvidia Game Ready Watch Dogs 2

A new set of Nvidia GeForce drivers, 388.31, has been released today, providing support for several games with a 2 in the title. Destiny 2, Injustice 2, and Battlefront 2 (out on Friday) should all be well served by this release. They probably won’t make the progression any smoother in Battlefront 2, but that’s not really Nvidia’s problem.

Destiny 2 in particular seems like it will benefit from this release, as Nvidia is claiming performance boosts of up to 53% with certain GPUs (looks like the 1080 line does especially well). The link above includes some performance charts and graphs at both 1440p and 4K.

Based on yet another chart, Nvidia think a 1060 will be enough for you to play Battlefront 2 on High settings at 1080p. They recommend a 1070 for 1440p, and a 1080ti for 4K resolutions.
