The new patch fixes a problem introduced by the previous update
Crystal Dynamics has just confirmed that a brand new patch for the PC version of Tomb Raider is now available on the Steam service, taking the game's version up to 1.01.743.0 and solving a few problems that appeared after the last update.Tomb Raider delivered a great experience on the PC platform last month but quite a few players reported problems within the game, either due to different bugs or issues that appeared when the title ran on Nvidia graphics cards.
Fortunately, developer Crystal Dynamics has released quite a few updates on Steam to resolve many of the different issues encountered by players.
The last update appeared a few days ago but, while it did fix some problems, it also created a new one that made the mouse unresponsive when selecting a basecamp upgrade.
As a result, a new patch has just been rolled out that fixes that issue and improves a few other things, so check them all out below, via Steam.
- Resolved a problem where mouse control in the basecamp upgrade screen would not work properly since build 742.0.
- Stereo3D parameters for strength and depth can now be modified in the registry beyond their normal in-game range again.
- GPU performance improvements, specifically at higher quality levels.
If the new patch creates other problems, Crystal Dynamics has released a special beta update that will take the game back to versions 1.01.742.0, which can be activated via Steam.
The studio has also made a statement about the ongoing issues experienced by Tomb Raider on PCs with Nvidia graphics cards, saying that, while some progress is being made, problems are still present.
"Unfortunately we do not yet have a resolution for the players that are experiencing crashes and major graphical corruption on NVIDIA hardware. Some progress has been made though, and we expect hope to have an update soon."
Tomb Raider is available on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
