New 425.31 Nvidia Drivers Bring Ray Tracing to Older GTX Cards

Remember about a month back when we told you that ray tracing was coming to those with non-RTX Nvidia cards? That day has finally arrived. With today's release of the 425.31 drivers, those on 1060 and higher cards can now give real-time ray tracing a spin.

Since all of these older cards lack the special hardware that helps to speed up DirectX Raytracing (DXR) in games, don't expect to have fantastic framerates. However, if you understand what you're getting yourself into, go nuts with it. Just make sure you have one of the following cards, have updated to the 425.31 Nvidia drivers,...

Apex Legends to Soon Start Penalizing Early Leavers


A new feature is in the works for Apex Legends that aims to penalize those players that leave a game prematurely.

Community manager Jayfresh shared some details about what they're working on via Reddit.



Subsequent responses in the thread cleared up a few of the major questions fans of...
 

Z1 Battle Royale Dropped by New Developer After One Month


Daybreak Games just can't seem to catch a break. Their mess, otherwise known as H1Z1 has been met with another weird twist in its story. It was announced that NantG Mobile, the studio that took over development of the game, has dropped the game and given it back to its original developer Daybreak Games.

H1Z1 is now known as Z1 Battle Royale, but you may also know it as H1Z1: King of the Kill, H1Z1: Just Survive, King of the Kill, or the second iteration of its original H1Z1 name. Included in all of these name changes was the apparent removal of the survival aspect to the game,...

    Gearbox Announces Battleborn - A Blend of FPS and MOBA Genres

    Gearbox has just announced Battleborn, a hybrid of a first-person shooter and MOBA that is currently in development at the studio. They're calling it their new "full-featured triple-A her-shooter experience" and it's coming to the Xbox One, PlaySTation 4, and PC. It's also the subject of Game Informer's August cover story.

  • Microsoft Giving Some Xbox 360 Owners $75 in Credit if They Purchase an Xbox One

    If you fire up your Xbox 360, chances are that you may be greeted with the following screen.


    That is what happened to one NeoGAF user a few moments ago (also the source of the image). User BeforeU mentions that this new image popped up after he turned on his Xbox 360 to "play some Halo." Others in the thread mentioned that they also received similar offers when they fired up their systems. There's no saying if this offer extends to all Xbox 360 users or just a select few. So far there doesn't seem to be much in common between those who received the message, outside of them owning an Xbox 360. Some on the...
