  • CPUs that have more than 16 cores might experience a higher amount of instability.
  • Some players are experiencing graphical settings issues, such as HDR not working correctly.
  • Some players are experiencing performance issues on specific GPUs or hardware combinations.
  • We're aware of and continue to investigate issues that are not yet solved on both the player-compiled lists by u/EvilMonkeySlayer and u/Rampage572 – thank you!


Graphical Improvements

  • Anisotropic Filtering now works correctly
  • The mandatory/unskippable shader optimisation step at first launch has been removed
  • Shaders are now pre-optimised in the game’s Main Menu, but can be skipped
  • Shaders are also optimised dynamically in-game
