Battlefield 1

Big releases on PC always get GPU driver updates dedicated all to themselves. AMD have not always been the best with this – they’re great at putting out desirable cards for cheap prices on the market, but their software and driver support has, for want of a better term, sucked – but it looks like they’re picking up the slack in this area now.

The AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.10.2 adds support for Battlefield 1, Civilization VI, Titanfall 2, Serious Sam VR Early Access and Eagle Flight VR. It adds a Crossfire profile for Civilization 6, fixes a fan issue on some AMD GPUs, and does some general housekeeping work, too. You can check out the full patch notes for this driver update below.
