NVIDIA Beta Drivers for Crysis 3 Beta

NVIDIA now offers new version 313.95 beta GeForce drivers for NVIDIA graphics cards. The drivers are available for Windows Vista/7/8 32-bit, for Windows Vista/7/8 64-bit, for Windows XP 32-bit, and for Windows XP 64-bit. These are the recommended GeForce drivers for the Crysis 3 open beta that's expected tomorrow, and they are also said to offer performance improvements over the WHQL-certified version 310.90 GeForce drivers. Thanks Charles.

Why they go with Crysis open beta again? Back with the 2nd it exposed a shitload of issues that made it pristine/untouched to retail... until well a month after release.

Agree, I remember when an Nvidia update broke XWing Alliance to the point that it was unplayable. It was still broken as of a few years ago last time I checked, although there look to be some current mods show you how to install it on Win 7, so maybe it's playable now. I have to go dig up my disks...

That Mechwarrior Mod was about the most fun I got out of Crysis MP.

Oh Crytek you're so silly, you think your game is Call of Duty with a nano suit.
Does anyone really play Crysis for the multiplayer, though?

No not really, power struggle wasn't horrible from Crysis 1 but it lacked some of the teamplay aspects you come to expect in a team based shooter. It was like playing Battlefield conquest mode but with deathmatch rules, no squads, no support rolls.

The nano suit is what throws everything out of whack, everyone being superman just isn't that much fun.

They do have a mode in this one where one person is all nano suited up and everyone else is just regular soldier with a gun, but even if it's fun they'll screw it up with DLC map packs you'll need to buy right after you've paid $60 for the game.

I desperately wanted to play Crysis online but it was so undercooked and buggy...

True. I played Crysis 1, skipped the mp. It was all about the campaign for me.

On a side note I've been beta testing that new Nvida Experience that tweaks games based on your card. It actually works really well. Although the game selection is very limited, it will mature. Overall it made my BF3 game look & play a little better. =)
I'm interested in that but it doesn't support SLI yet.

Weird look at that, an Nvidia driver ready before the game comes out.

Rather than (or as well as) linking to the US versions of drivers, why not just link to http://www.geforce.com/drivers/beta-legacy ? It's not the biggest chore to do this by hand but I'm sure a fairly large percentage of Bluesnewsers aren't using a US operating system.

I wish, at some point, we would get the ability to use drivers on a per-instance basis. So, for example, if I launched Crysis 3, it would use driver version 313.95. And if I launched an older game, it would use driver version whatever that ran the best for that game.

This way we could stop worrying about miraculous new driver X which increases Latest Game Du Jour by 30%, and breaks 8 old ones...

Oh man, that would be such an incredible innovation. I don't know if the current Windows driver framework would permit it but given that since Windows Vista, video drivers can be shut down and restarted without requiring a reboot, I bet this could be possible. I'd love to see that.
