New Arc Graphics Game On Driver adds Assassin’s Creed, Forza support, Starfield fixes, and more


Intel Graphics Driver 31.0.101.4885 for Intel Arc A-Series Graphics is here, and it’s a big one; it not only adds day one support for Assassin’s Creed Mirage and Forza Motorsport on PC but fixes some issues with EA Sports FC 24 (the new re-branded FIFA) and Starfield. According to the full driver release notes, there are still outstanding issues regarding Bethesda’s latest RPG, like Dynamic Resolution Scaling, but it’s great to see progress nonetheless.
