Performance And Stability Enhancing Witcher 3: Wild Hunt PC Patch Released

Written by Stuart Thomas on 21 May 2015 at 16:30

CD Projekt RED has issued a new patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, providing a host of changes to the PC version of its mighty impressive RPG. Coming so soon after launch there’s no major gameplay additions, but The Witcher 3 patch 1.03 packs in a range of stability and performance enhancements.

The key areas focused on here are improving the previously-shaky Nvidia Hairworks performance, as well as UI stability. Hopefully this should iron out the problems many have been having with The Witcher 3 freezing when accessing certain menus. [More]

Battlefield Hardline - Criminal Activity Expansion Pack Detailed

Written by Neil Soutter on 21 May 2015 at 15:15

EA has announced details of Battlefield Hardline’s first expansion pack, called Criminal Activity. The DLC is the first of four expansions coming to Visceral Games’ Battlefield debut, and it’s set to focus on fast-paced action.

Coming in June, Criminal Activity packs in four new maps, including The Beat, Backwoods, Code Blue and Black Friday, which fittingly enough sound like perfect titles for some episodes of CSI. These will be joined by three new weapons, six new masks, two new vehicles, a new gadget and a nailgun pickup, if you’re feeling particularly brutal. [More]

Rumour: Nvidia Planning GeForce GTX 980 Ti Reveal In A Fortnight

Written by Joffy S on 21 May 2015 at 14:00

Reports are emerging that Nvidia is planning to reveal its own GeForce GTX 980 Ti at the very same Computex event in Taipei that AMD is scheduled to launch its Radeon R9 300 family of graphics cards. If Nvidia does push out the 980 Ti then it’s certainly going to take the wind out of AMD’s sails, offering performance lodged somewhere above a GeForce GTX 980 and in a similar territory to the GTX Titan X.

A lot has been made of AMD’s upcoming flagship model, the High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) equipped Radeon R9 390X. This is expected to debut at the same show, and comes packing the 2.5D memory offering lightning-quick performance. Nvidia’s clearly concerned if these rumours are true, turning the GeForce GTX 980 Ti around for release in rapid time to combat AMD. [More]

Dark Future: Blood Red States Preview - On The Highway To Hell

Written by Joffy S on 21 May 2015 at 13:00

So earlier today we announced the incredibly exciting Dark Future: Blood Red States, a slice of tactical action set in a sun-baked post-apocalyptic America. Think Fallout meets Burnout and you’re on the right track - just watch out for those rocket-propelled grenades.

Anyway, we’ll leave the other sites to speculate on what that all means while we serve you a piping-hot dollop of detail taken from an extensive chinwag our own Felix had with the Lord Humongous of Auroch Digital himself, Tomas Rawlings. [More]

Written by Stuart Thomas on 21 May 2015 at 11:30

The third and final part of The Evil Within’s Season Pass is out within the week. This time around it flips the survival horror antics on its head, putting the player in the shoes of the hulking box-headed brute known as The Keeper.

The Evil Within - The Executioner is out next Tuesday, and Bethesda has revealed a first gameplay trailer for this absurdly violent first-person slasher. The Executioner will be taking place in the Manor House of the Victoriano Estate from the main game, with The Keeper making his way through a series of battle arenas armed with his trusty meathammer.

AMD Offers The Witcher 3 HairWorks Performance Fix - Promises New Driver Soon

Written by Neil Soutter on 21 May 2015 at 10:17

Nvidia’s Gameworks integration in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has provoked a bit of controversy over the last few weeks. A number of features, such as HairWorks, are optimised for GeForce hardware and run terribly on their AMD counterparts.

AMD has now announced a short-term fix for HairWorks performance in The Witcher 3, as well as revealing its Witcher 3-optimised Catalyst 15.15 drivers should be with us soon. The driver update will also feature performance boosts for AMD gamers playing Project CARS. [More]

Sometimes, it’s great being me. Right now, for example. Because I’m getting the chance to tell you guys, the Game-Debate readers, before anyone else in the world, that a certain classic Games Workshop title, that is very dear to my heart, is coming to the PC and will be available as early access before the end of this year.

We’re in for a treat, because as well as you hearing it on GD first, this game is looking to be one of the coolest adaptations of a Games Workshop licence yet. [More]

The Witcher 3 Benchmarks GeForce GTX 750 Ti

Written by Joffy S on 20 May 2015 at 17:30

After years of waiting and months of speculation, we've finally been able to put The Witcher 3 to the test. After some of the highest requirements we'd ever seen, and downgrade controversies aplenty, it's time to see what the fuss is all about. In these benchmarks we'll be using the trusty GD Machine 2014, equipped with a GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB, Intel i5-4670K processor, and 8GB memory.

Nvidia’s tiny GeForce GTX 750 Ti comes in at a shade under the minimum system requirements for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Having seen how the 750 Ti had performed in a host of other games, however, we were confident the mid-range graphics card was capable of getting reasonable performance in The Witcher 3. The question was, at what level would it be capable of performing? [More]
