Mass Effect: Andromeda Nvidia drivers released ahead of tomorrow’s launch

20 Mar

Grab the latest Nvidia drivers and be ready for tomorrow’s Mass Effect: Andromeda launch.

mass_effect_andromeda_4k_screnshot_29

If you didn’t want to spend the money on an Origin Access subscription to see how Mass Effect: Andromeda runs on your PC ahead of launch, you’ll at least be going in on day one with a more optimised Nvidia driver.

Although Mass Effect: Andromeda looks amazing on PC, and runs mostly fine, PC players known how valuable it is to run the game at the best performance possible.

Nvidia has now released the latest optimised GeForce drivers, designed for Mass Effect: Andromeda. The company did not spill out any performance improvements, which usually means you shouldn’t expect too much of a jump from the current drivers.

In any case, it’s always best to run game with the latest drivers, which in this case are the new 378.92. You can download them through here. Just select the appropriate OS and card model you have.

Mass Effect Andromeda Nvidia Game Ready Driver 378.92 Now Live

20 Mar

Mass Effect Andromeda will be coming out on the 21st of March in America and later on in Europe on the 23rd of March. If you have played the preview and are not satisfied with the experience then the Nvidia Game Ready Driver 378.92 should provide a small boost.

Mass Effect: Andromeda isn’t all bad faces – it’s gorgeous in 4K, so here’s 33 screenshots of it in action

20 Mar

30 lovely eyeball melters from our Mass Effect: Andromeda play-through.

mass_effect_andromeda_4k_screnshot_01

Yeah, yeah, we know: the human faces. The animation. Mass Effect: Andromeda has it rough visually in these areas, and fans and internet message board pundits have made a pretty big deal out of that over the last few weeks. But here’s the thing: That stuff feels like the exception, not the rule. Generally speaking (and when it’s not bugging out) the game is bloody gorgeous, with art design and technical work in Frostbite that’s enough to make any science fiction fan squeal with delight. Like the rest of the game, if you push past the bad what sits beyond is rather enjoyable.

Your mileage will vary a little based on platform, but from what we’ve seen it’s a looker by the standards of any of its three platforms, with Xbox One the worst looking and the PS4 and PS4 Pro sitting comfortably in the middle. The rough side on consoles comes in performance, with dodgy frame rates and pop-in issues. The best, of course, is PC – provided you have the rig.

I’m lucky enough to have one such rig and I feel like pre-launch discussion of Andromeda has focused a little much on its (sometimes admittedly very crap) faces – so here are 33 4K, ultra settings screenshots I took of Mass Effect: Andromeda. Keep in mind that these screenshots showcase a number of the story-critical planets from the game but are pretty much free of context, so unless the simple fact that the game has a desert planet is a spoiler to you, they’re safe to call spoiler-free. (Two of the shots are of pre-rendered sequences – spot which.)

These shots were taken on NVIDIA’s new GTX 1080ti graphics card, which by all accounts is an absolute beast. This card can run Andromeda at 4K and a fairly solid 60fps, which is how I’ve been playing. Combat is eye-melting on it. You should be able to reach close to this visual fidelity at 1080p on a regular 1080 or 1070, too.

Anyway, screenshots! If you want to see them at full 4K, save them or right click and open in a new tab once you click the shot in the gallery below.

This Mass Effect: Andromeda tech video shows how lovely the game looks displayed in 4K with HDR enabled

17 Mar

Last week, Nvidia released a set of Mass Effect: Andromeda screenshots in 4K, and today, you can have a look at a tech video of the game shot in 4K HDR.

Obviously, the video will look much better if you’re watching it on a HDR enabled display. That said, it’s still worth a watch because the team at Bioware Edmonton discuss how 4K makes the finer details of Mass Effect: Andromeda stand out.

The team also discusses how HDR affects gameplay by increasing the readability of the scenes. This allows the player to continue seeing details of the environment even when there’s quite a bit of lens flare or explosions going on around them.

Along with HDR, Mass Effect: Andromeda features Nvidia Ansel technologies which the team hopes players will use to take “amazing shots” in 4K.

Again, the gameplay seen in the video was shot in 4K with HDR enabled throughout, but it still looks nice – even if you’re viewing the video in 480p (don’t judge me). Be sure to choose the 2160p option in the video’s settings to get the full effect.

Bioware previously released the minimum and recommended PC specs, and you can look over those through the link.

If you missed the 4K shots from last week, here they are.

Mass Effect: Andromeda releases next week on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

It arrives in North America March 21 and on March 23 in Europe.
