NVIDIA GeForce 497.09 WHQL Driver released, optimized for ICARUS, Chorus & Halo Infinite
NVIDIA has released a brand new driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the NVIDIA GeForce 497.09 WHQL driver offers optimal performance in ICARUS, Chorus and Halo Infinite’s Single-Player Campaign.

Battlefield 2042 battle royale creator explains how he made a mode that DICE said was impossible
Battlefield 2042 has not so much hit the ground running, as wingsuit-crashed at such speed that it's still tumbling through the snow with its limbs-a-flailing. Something that's keeping these limbs intact, however, is the excellent Portal mode, which lets players create games with custom rules using maps and gear from across the series. Warfield 100, a "Full Battle Royale Experience", is perhaps its finest creation yet.
Warfield 100 creator Christian Muhler—who owns indie game studio One Duck Theory and is a self-described "masochist who plays the PC version with a controller"—implemented dozens of custom rules to make the mode work. Many are weird but kind of ingenious workarounds that squeeze a ton of custom code into Portal's pretty limited toolset. The mode has a circle that closes in every two minutes, ground loot, and even a Warzone-style prison that gives you a chance to return to the match after you die.
