NVIDIA’s GeForce Game Ready 516.94 WHQL driver is now available to download via GeForce Experience or the GeForce Drivers site.

The new driver adds support for the much-anticipated PC port of Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, which was previously exclusive to PlayStation consoles for years but will soon be available to play in a definitive version with exciting upgrades that include a higher-quality ray-traced mode.

NVIDIA has shared a synopsis for the game and why Spider-Man fans might want to play the game on GeForce hardware.

In Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, the worlds of Peter Parker and Spider-Man collide in an original action-packed story. Play as an experienced Peter Parker, fighting big crime and iconic villains in Marvel’s New York. On August 12th, 2022, Insomniac Games’ critically acclaimed action adventure game, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, comes to PC with numerous PC features, in collaboration with Nixxes Software.

By playing Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on a GeForce RTX graphics card, desktop or laptop, you’ll experience the incredible game, enhanced with NVIDIA DLSS, NVIDIA DLAA, and upgraded ray-traced effects that run fastest on GeForce RTX thanks to the dedicated RT Cores found on each RTX GPU.

NVIDIA’s new driver also “includes optimizations for Madden NFL 23 and the upcoming SUPER PEOPLE beta, and introduces support for 18 new G-SYNC Compatible gaming monitors and 13 new Optimal Playable Settings.”
