Game On Driver for Intel® Arc™ Graphics for The Settlers: New Allies*, Company of Heroes 3*, and Like a Dragon: Ishin!*

Intel® Game On Drivers deliver the best experience for gamers playing on Intel Graphics with optimized launch-day patches and performance updates as new games release.

Our latest driver comes with support for some of the most anticipated games of 2023: Atomic Heart, Company of Heroes 3, Like a Dragon: Ishin!, The Settlers: New Allies, and Wild Hearts. This bunch of new games has something for everyone, and we’ve ensured they all run great on Intel Arc graphics.

Let’s take a close look at two new games, The Settlers: New Allies with support today and Returnal, which launched since last week’s driver provided launch day support.

The Settlers: New Allies

Fight, build, explore, manage, and research your way to victory! Whether you’re skirmishing far from home or settling a sprawling village, you’ve never seen The Settlers like this. New Allies leverages a host of advancements in graphics since The Settlers first arrived on PCs 30 years ago. Detailed buildings full of character, breathtaking scenery towering above the surface, and vibrant animations make a lively world for your settlers to inhabit. Besides the wonders of modern graphics, Ubisoft Düsseldorf rejuvenates the long-running series with an all-new story, hardcore mode, and modern multiplayer battles.

Those dazzling visuals look great on Intel Arc graphics. At 1080p High settings, the Intel Arc A750 GPU runs The Settlers: New Allies at 174 FPS, or at 1440p High the game runs at 130 FPS. If you’re craving even more performance, XeSS will be available in The Settlers: New Allies after launch.

This new chapter in the legendary strategy and resource management series launches February 17 on PC. It’s available via the Ubisoft Store, but you can get the game bundled with the best value in graphics: The Settlers and more games and software are included with every Intel Arc GPU until April 30th.**


A dark and unforgiving world awaits Selene, doomed to relive her journey after every defeat. The award-winning, graphically stunning bullet hell is now available on PC with a full suite of enhancements gamers will enjoy. The sullen shapeshifting alien landscape drenches you and your co-op partner in pitch black, ray traced for the most accurate shadows and reflections possible. Wrap yourself in fear with ultrawide monitor support and react even quicker to Returnal’s horrors with FPS-enhancing XeSS, available now.

Even with all that eye candy cranked up at 1440p High, the Intel Arc A750 GPU runs Returnal at 67 FPS. Don’t just take our word for it – among the numerous PC enhancements is a built-in benchmark for putting your hardware to the test in the haunting atmosphere of Atropos. Check out the full list of PC features and pick up Returnal on Steam.

Unbeatable Performance Per Dollar

Not only are we dedicated to giving gamers the best experiences as soon as your new favorite game launches, we’re also restoring balance to the GPU market with second-to-none value. Sure, the Intel Arc A750 is 4% to 14% faster than an Nvidia RTX 3060 in The Settlers: New Allies and Returnal…

…but with the A750’s price lowered to $249, you get at least 62% more performance per dollar in these games.

With another regular driver update in the books, your Intel Arc GPU just got better no matter if you’re sacking settlements or plunging into perilous planets.
