NVIDIA today posted GeForce 442.74 WHQL Game Ready drivers. These come with optimization and bug fixes for the weekend’s biggest release, “DOOM Eternal,” which goes live in Asia and ANZ in a few minutes from now. Besides this, the 442.74 WHQL drivers address just one bug: an issue with “Red Dead Redemption 2,” where task-switching with alt+Tab in the middle of the game may result in a black screen.

You can download the GeForce Software 442.74 WHQL drivers via GeForce.com.

European Destroyers event brings five powerful new ships to early access in update 0.9.2, as well as Småland destroyer, together with new Scandinavian port and other gameplay changes

World of Warships is making itself ready for the deployment of new, powerful Swedish destroyers, five into early access while the Småland being the first Tier X available for Free XP, with the launch of a new European Destroyers event in today’s update 0.9.2. The new ships launch together with a new port – Fjords – which is inspired by the dramatic landscapes of Scandinavia.

A new World of Warships trailer can be viewed HERE.

The new Tier V-IX destroyers’ main feature will be their fast, long-range torpedoes, allowing them to strike the opponent from far away. The ships don’t have access to the Smoke Generator consumable, a lack which is compensated by their rather low detectability, as well as the Repair Party consumable. As Swedish destroyers, the Visby (Tier V), Västerås (Tier VI), Skåne (Tier VII), Öland (Tier VIII), Östergötland (Tier IX), represent their nation for the first time in World of Warships, with the new destroyers forming part of the European line.

Players eager to try out the new Swedish destroyers can find them in special ship’s bundles, which can be acquired by spending European tokens, a temporary resource. The tokens can be found in containers. Special missions will become available after a player has received the ships in early access, granting additional rewards such as unique ship camouflages.

The most remarkable feature of the new Swedish destroyers is their lightning-fast long-range torpedoes,” said Philip Molodkovets, Executive Producer for World of Warships. “Players who appreciate swift, action-packed gameplay will also find a good use for their rapid-firing guns and Repair Party consumable. And while they’re carrying out torpedo runs or engaging in close-range fighting with other destroyers, a good AA defense –with the Defensive AA Fire consumable on high tiers– will help them fend off enemy planes. The rather unusual absence of a Smoke Generator is compensated by alternative self-defense tools and pretty good concealment.

In update 0.9.2, the thickness ​​of cruiser and battleship armor plating has also been updated, as well as the Inertia fuse for HE Shells skill. Due to changes to the penetration mechanics, cruisers can penetrate the armor of cruisers in the same tier without using the Inertia Fuse for HE Shells skill. The changes will make inter-class interaction between cruisers more logical, while the updated armor plating will make cruisers, if they are positioned wisely, more resistant to battleship salvos.

The update will also include two Clan Brawls, and continues to improve the visuals in four maps and three ports which are being reworked to accommodate the new lightning model while taking full advantage of the latest in enhanced HDR technology.

Further details on the Update 0.9.2 can be found HERE.

Comanche is now available on Steam for € 19.99 / $ 19.99 / £ 17.99 / 999.00 Rub.

What’s in the Early Access Version now?
At the start of the Early Access Phase Comanche will offer 3 different game modes:

Singleplayer
As requested by the community, Comanche will get a singleplayer campaign. Starting with one mission available from March 12th on, developer Nukklear will add new missions on a regular basis.

Multiplayer
The 4vs4 team-based multiplayer will start with two modes, one called Black Box, the other Infiltration. In Black Box, the goal is to collect more black boxes from destroyed Comanches with your drone. You can collect both enemy and friendly black boxes using the drone, so this mode guarantees intense team fights at close range. Infiltration again combines helicopter combat and drone piloting: your objective is to either defend or infiltrate a base. Attackers must place an EMP, defenders must disarm it.

Flight & Combat Training
In a variety of different missions, you can learn how to fly your Comanche and its drone to familiarise yourself with the flight controls and how to maneuver in combat. As Comanche requires some practice before you become a good pilot, we highly recommend players check out the training missions.

Available Helicopters & Drones
Five Comanches and four drones will be available at the Early Access launch, all coming with specific weapons, abilities and strengths and weaknesses. Each type of Comanche has a certain role to fulfill in the team-based combat and is suitable for a special type of player, so choose your favorite.

About Comanche

Comanche is a modern helicopter shooter sim set in the near future. You have the choice to either delve into the evolving single player and make a difference in a conflict of global proportions or compete with other Comanche players from all around the world in the explosive team-based multiplayer modes. Choose from an array of Comanche and drone configurations, and utilize their strengths to your tactical advantage. Experience a new era of thrilling dogfights and stealthy drone close-quarters action.

The all new Battle Pass is brimming with exciting rewards for players – including unique Bounty Equipment!

For the first time in World of Tanks history, Battle Pass has arrived, and it is here to stay. Set to be a long-running event – the inaugural season of Battle Pass will run from March 12th to June 10th 2020, giving players the chance to enjoy exciting rewards and a gratifying addition to the World of Tanks gameplay experience. And this will not simply be a one-off – the Battle Pass will return for a number of seasons following this inaugural event!

The new Battle Pass will change the way that players enjoy World of Tanks, allowing them to earn amazing rewards by simply playing the game,” states Max Chuvalov, Publishing Director for World of Tanks. “This event will also be one of a series of seasons – so make sure to get playing to start earning those progression points!

To enjoy the many benefits offered by World of Tanks Battle Pass, players have to join Random Battles (except for Grand Battles), earning progression points that will relate to their XP and position in the post battle ranking. So even through a victory, defeat or draw – players will still earn points that will stay with them and enhance their Battle Pass progression.

To create a real sense of achievement for players, the Battle Pass progression system includes two challenges: Main and Elite, with Main featuring 45 stages, and Elite with 100. Once all 45 stages of the Main Progression are completed, players can jump straight into Elite Progression – getting the chance to fight for more points, bigger rewards and even an Elite Chevron that will boast their current Battle Pass stage and in-game skills to other players.

Rewards within the World of Tanks Battle Pass include unique Bounty Equipment, with the Bounty Rammer and Bounty Gun Laying Device. Players can also earn Premium Account time, credits, customization elements and other in-game goodies.

Those who reach the 45th stage of the Main Progression will be granted exclusive 3D styles for one of the two special vehicles (the Super Conqueror or the Object 277) and a commander with enough XP to learn three extra skills/perks.

Players also have the opportunity to add to this event with the Improved pass – helping them to achieve an even bigger heap of rewards from the Main Progression or the Elite Progression pool of prizes. This can be obtained during any stage of the event.

In order to experience World of Tanks Battle Pass, Players must have a Tier VI (or higher) vehicle at hand.
