NVIDIA has released a new driver for its GeForce graphics cards just in time for the release of the long anticipated game, Watch Dogs 2. The much requested sequel to the original Watch Dogs, Watch Dogs 2 provides a new story with a new main character in which players must face the perils of an overly connected city and hack their way to a favorable ending. For a game of this size and stature, most players want to make sure they have everything running smoothly so that they can better enjoy the experience.

NVIDIA recognizes this concern and has released a new GeForce driver called GeForce Game Ready which has been specially developed so that players can enjoy Watch Dogs 2. NVIDIA also took into account Dead Rising 4 and Steep when crafting the driver with the build 376.09.

There are several goodies implemented just for the lucky bunch playing Watch Dogs 2. They will benefit from PCSS, TXAA and HBAO+ support, but also compatibility for SLI configuration setups. Among the features getting fresh support is GeForce Experience Share, enhancing the feature so it may be ready for action. Not to be forgotten are the 20 new settings implemented to deal with how Watch Dogs 2 handles graphics. With these options, players will be able to better craft their desired visual experience and give imagery a personal flavor.

Speaking of graphics, Watch Dogs 2 is a brand new game, meaning that it will be up to par with the latest standards in video quality. That being said, enthusiastic players can expect a max resolution of 2560 x 1440. The game’s Very High graphics setting will put the most strain on your computer, so if you want to play the game with the highest standards available, the new 376.09 driver will help tremendously.
