Nvidia has released the newest game-ready driver for “Overwatch.” Dubbed as the GeForce Game Ready 368.22 WHQL drivers, these have been optimised for “Overwatch.”

In the official GeForce website, Nvidia has also detailed that the new game drivers are also compatible with the upcoming titles “War Thunder” and “World of Tanks.” The new Game Ready driver is optimised and SLI-enabled for the best experience with a fast-paced multiplayer like “Overwatch.”

Nvidia has also provided a list of GTX graphics cards that can handle the high framerate battles. A 1920x1080 resolution with 60FPS will run smoothly with the GeForce GTX 950. 2560x1440 at high and 60 FPS can be managed by the GeForce GTX 970. Finally, a 3840x2160 screen resolution at high run and average of 60FPS will require the GeForce GTX 980 Ti.

For players who were wondering, the prices for the microtransactions have already been revealed. Loot boxes are essentially the microtransaction items that contain cosmetics to customise players’ characters.

According to IGN, loot boxes can be unlocked via leveling up, but it is also possible to purchase them with real money. Players can choose to buy anywhere between two to 50 loot boxes. The lowest price is at US$2 (approx. AU$2.78) for two loot boxes, while the highest is US$40 (approx. AU$55) for 50 loot boxes. There are three other tiers to choose from, including 5 loot boxes (US$5/approx. AU$7), 11 loot boxes (US$10/approx. AU$14) and 24 loot boxes (US$20/approx. AU$28).

“Overwatch” has shown a lot of ambition, especially since it is Blizzard’s newest and long-time IP since the likes of “Diablo” and “World of Warcraft.” The change in perspective—from third-person POV to a first-person shooter, may be the developer’s way of tapping into the e-Sports arena.

According to BBC, the developer is already looking at the e-Sports landscape for this particular game. And if it has potential, it may be a possible avenue and challenge—seeing as how not all first-person shooter titles have succeeded in the world of e-Sports.

“E-sports is no only a driver of audience expansion, but also importantly drives growth in terms of time spent with our franchises,” said Thomass Tippl, COO at Activision Blizzard, as quoted by BBC.

“Overwatch” features some refreshing, new and colourful characters that give the game its new flavour. So far, both critics and fans have seen the good in “Overwatch.” Longer play may show what else the game has to offer, and if it has the makings of a good e-Sports title.
