Intel® Arc™ Game On Driver for Nightingale and Pacific Drive, plus more FPS in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey!

by Zachary Hill |

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.

Strange planes of reality are held together by mere threads in Nightingale, and the latest Intel Arc Game On drivers are your perfect companion for navigating unknown realms. You’re in the driver’s seat in Pacific Drive, but our graphics drivers are gassed up to ride shotgun too. If you’re returning to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s war between Athens and Sparta, armor up with our latest drivers for 24% more frames per second.


Ready your gunpowder and brass to rebuild all that has been lost. Humanity’s marvelous arcane portal network has collapsed, leaving you and your fellow Realmwalkers stranded in the breathtaking but unforgiving Fae realms. Magical beasts don’t take kindly to strangers, but you’ll have to face them if you’re to reconnect the transdimensional portals and return to the last bastion of humanity, the magical city of Nightingale.

You’ve never seen survival-crafting in such a magical light. The realms of Nightingale show off the latest in graphics using Unreal Engine 5, filling the Victorian fantasy world with plentiful foliage, awe-inspiring atmosphere, and fearsome creatures. The twisted Fae beings, called the Bound, come in all shapes and sizes but it’s easier to lay them to rest with friends at your side.

Planning excursions into uncharted regions can be contentious in co-op crafting survival open world games, especially if you and your allies wind up wandering for days seeking your next fix of resources. Nightingale fixes all that with Realm Cards, which give your party influence over the treasures and treachery waiting beyond the next portal. Go where you need: to dense Faewild forests, harrowing swamps, sweltering deserts, and beyond, each with unique foes and rewards to aid you in your return to Nightingale.

Of all the magic within Nightingale, one spell that needn’t mystify you is Intel XeSS. At 1080p Ultra settings on the Intel Arc A750, XeSS Performance boosts FPS in Nightingale by up to 65%.

The Fae realms await your exploration. Nightingale is available in Early Access today on Steam.

Pacific Drive

There’s nothing you can’t do with a good station wagon. Pacific Drive puts you in command of a family hauler which has seen better days but has a supernatural will to live. Cherish it, because that two-ton hunk of steel is your only friend out in the Olympic Exclusion Zone.

This twisted version of the US Pacific Northwest is isolated from the world, walled off to seal its hazardous anomalies inside. Strange mysteries of this forsaken region’s past are waiting to be unraveled, and along the way you’ll upgrade your trusty four-wheeled companion. The wagon’s body panels shield you from intense radiation, and you’ll be wiping much bigger things than bugs off your windshield.

Road trippin’ requires killer tunes, and Pacific Drive’s got the right mixtape ready to pop into the cassette player. A soundtrack of over 20 licensed songs sets the mood, and the game’s original score is composed by Wilbert Roget, II — most recently heard composing the soundtrack for Helldivers 2.

The wild world of Pacific Drive doesn’t slow down with updated Intel Arc drivers. Put it in D at 1440p High with an Intel Arc A750 and you’ll fly down the highway at up to an average of 62 FPS.

Load up the station wagon and drive like hell in Pacific Drive, coming to Steam on February 22nd.

Optimized performance in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Our graphics odyssey of bringing high performance GPUs to the masses takes another step with improved performance in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Ubisoft’s tale of ascending to the stuff of legends now runs faster than ever on the Intel Arc A750. At 1080p Ultra High settings, AC Odyssey now runs at an average of 67 FPS. It’s also smoother than ever: 99% of frames render faster than 56 FPS, higher than the average of all frames on our previous driver.

So, what is your preferred mode of transportation? Is it the flashy Victorian style of Nightingale’s arcane portals, the run-down but reliable wheels of Pacific Drive, or the thudding hooves of your steed in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey? No matter how you choose to move, Intel Arc graphics can get you there.
