AMD has released Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.1.4. This driver adds support for Blizzard’s heavily anticipated Warcraft III “reimagining,” Warcraft III: Reforged, which releases tomorrow (1/28). The remake improves upon the original with stunning 4K visuals and a multiplayer mode featuring improved matchmaking, updated UI, and quality-of-life improvements.

According to AMD, the 20.1.4 driver can improve the performance of Warcraft III: Reforged by as much as 11% for Radeon RX 5700 XT cards. This is for the “high presets.”

The driver also adds support for Typhoon Studios’s co-op adventure title, Journey to the Savage Planet, which appears to be an Epic Games Store exclusive (PC). There’s no indication of how 20.1.4 improves this game.
