Tucked away inside Nvidia’s latest GeForce driver release was something very interesting indeed. While all eyes are on an expected 1080 Ti reveal, Nvidia has snuck in some next-gen Volta GPU support to its GeForce Game Ready Driver version 378.66. [More]

Everybody likes free stuff, and when it comes to Total War: Warhammer, freebies are about as rare as a smile from a Space Marine. It’s been out less than a year and there’s already umpteen DLC packs for the most ardent of Warhammer fans. So getting an entire free faction is a little unusual then, although I suspect Creative Assembly probably guessed not too many people would be willing to part with cold, hard cash to unlock the pious Bretonnia faction.

The AMD Ryzen leaks are coming thick and fast now. The latest CPU to be tested is the Ryzen R7 1700X, one of the highest spec models due to launch in March. The R7 1700X is an eight-core beast with 16 threads, clocked at 3.4 GHz Base Clock with a 95W TDP and packing a $389 price point. With a price tag like that it would ordinarily place it at the mid/high end of the CPU market, yet in terms of performance this is well up there with Intel’s highest-end $1000 offerings. [More]

UPDATE - 2017-02-21 A newly released Nier Automata trailer has confirmed it will be coming to PC on March 10th, 2017, just a couple of days after it launches on PlayStation 4. The announcement comes just hours after PlatinumGames admitted the PC version would be delayed due to piracy concerns. [More]

Ubisoft has pushed out a quick hotfix for For Honor in an effort to paper over some the cracks which have surfaced since launch. The main point of note is the widespread issue of enabling full screen which has been driving plenty of PC For Honor players insane. Some found For Honor was launching in windowed mode and a simple Alt + Enter when borderless full screen yet retained a lower resolution. This hotfix should have stamped this issue out for good. [More]

Regular Rainbow Six Siege players will be all too aware the game has been totally borked since the latest season dropped. Operation Velvet Shell freshened things up with the new Coastline map and two new Operators. However matchmaking and connection issues have become widespread, while new Operator Mira’s special skill is practically useless thanks to a bug. [More]

Contrary to what Microsoft has been feeding us with its Xbox Play Anywhere initiative, it turns out it won’t be following the ‘every game appears on both platforms’ mantra forever. Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer has said Microsoft has PC exclusives in the works, although it’s waiting on the right time to announce them. Age of Empires 4, anyone? [More]

Earlier in January, we informed you about the Minimum and Recommended System Requirements for Halo Wars 2, Microsoft's Master Chief'ed RTS releasing tomorrow. Over in Europe a physical edition of the game is being published by THQ Nordic. So far, so snooze. Look at the back of the box however and you see an extra set of Ultra system requirements for Halo Wars 2, with Creative Assembly recommending the currently unannounced Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

Microsoft made the bizarre decision last week to cancel all security updates for Windows and its other software products for the month of February. It was a strange thing to do, meaning any known vulnerabilities would remain exposed for an entire month. This issue has now been compounded, as Google has published details of a critical security flaw it has found in Windows operating systems. Without security updates to plug the gap, this flaw is now totally exploitable until Microsoft gets around to March’s Windows security updates. [More]

I think I might have missed this last week, but DICE released a new trailer showing off Battlefield 1’s frankly awesome new Frontlines mode. It’s coming to BF1 as part of the They Shall Not Pass DLC pack which drops in March. It’s basically a tug-of-war frontline in which the the two teams battle over a single point at a time. If the battle shifts too far one way or the other, it switches to a Rush-style attack/defend of two telegraph points. [More]
