Continuing in its tradition of releasing new drivers for its GPUs in preparation for the release of major AAA titles on PC, Nvidia this week pushed out version 388.71 of its WHQL drivers. The release does not, unfortunately, come with an extensive list of changes and optimisations, as is normally the case.
While Nvidia may not have provided a more specific changelog, the company does promote the 388.71 release as being aimed at optimizing its GPUs for version 1.0 of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. The 1.0 release marks a significant milestone for the popular battle royale game, which quickly took the gaming scene by storm after it was launched as an early access title earlier this year.
After a few hiccups earlier in the day, developer PUBG Corp finally nailed the official release of the game today, opening servers for players across the world to try out the many improvements this update brings.
If you're looking to try out the new climbing and vaulting mechanics for yourself, Nvidia recommends you first install the new drivers. You can do so by manually from the driver download page or use the GeForce Experience app to grab them from your desktop directly.
