Game On Driver for Intel® Arc™ Graphics for Assassin’s Creed Mirage* and Forza Motorsport
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.
Leap into the dazzling city of 9th century Baghdad or take the wheel in Forza Motorsport with today’s Game On drivers. Intel Arc graphics handle both stealth and speed in this week’s new games.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage
The Golden Age’s flourishing cultural and scientific advancements have been stalled by instability spread throughout the Middle East. Assassin’s Creed Mirage follows Basim Ibn Ishaq, defiant to the turbulence surrounding him in 9th century Baghdad. Despite this turmoil, this historical period produced stunning architecture, like that of the Great Mosque of Samarra. In AC Mirage, Basim’s father architected the marvelous mosque, only to be discredited, exiled, and perish in poverty, leaving Basim alone in the streets.
Now on his own, Basim must do what it takes to survive. Facing far more than the struggles of being a petty thief, Basim is haunted by dark visions of his conflicted destiny. Seeking answers amid the city’s power struggle lands him in the lap of the Assassin Brotherhood, a new family offering mentorship and a glimpse into what Basim’s fate truly holds. As you uncover the secrets lying in wait around the sprawling city of Baghdad, Basim’s abilities will grow as he puts his parkour skills, weaponry, and companions to use.
The PC version of Assassin’s Creed Mirage comes packed with extra abilities too. HDR and ultrawide support make the round city of Baghdad shine best on the most advanced monitors, especially at high framerates. To get even more performance when you play Assassin’s Creed Mirage, we’ve teamed up with Ubisoft to integrate Intel XeSS, taking performance to taller heights.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage returns to the storytelling which makes the series great tomorrow on the Ubisoft Store.
Forza Motorsport drops the number from its title as it’s now set to be an “evolving racing platform.” From the first waves of the green flag, the new Forza Motorsport is a place for champions to prove themselves with over 500 cars and 20 tracks. Wheel-to-wheel racing arrives with vintage formula cars, modern muscle, and advanced prototype racecars, and developer Turn 10 says there’s a lot more on the way.
But before we get ahead of ourselves, there’s plenty of ways to hone your racing chops at Forza Motorsport’s starting line. Singleplayer challenges include rotating Featured Rivals events, the first of which will take you back to the fan favorite fictional Maple Valley Raceway, back in Motorsport and better than ever. Hundreds of customization options give you every chance to tailor your car to best suit your driving style. For a level playing field, Spec Series will get you online in a loaner car matching the rest of the grid for pure competition. Looking ahead to the next apex? Monthly updates promise new cars, events, and the occasional new track like world-renowned Nordschleife, due in spring of next year.
We love regular updates here at Intel, and today’s updated graphics drivers are ready to hit the pavement and beyond. Forza Motorsport rolls out of the garage on October 10th, or you can start playing on the 5th with early access on Xbox for PC.
Performance built for stealth and speed
Today’s Intel Arc graphics drivers are ready for the streets of the past and racecars of modernity.
