Rise of the Tomb Raider PC Patch Released, Improves Performance

The first patch for the game was released last week, which brought remarkable improvements in the performance, but this new patch also promises to fix the other related issues and bugs and the GPU performance.

As reported, Steam users will receive the update pop-up from now on-wards, however, the people who bought the game from Windows Store will be getting the update 1.0.616.4 very soon.

Check out the second patch notes below;

We have just released the second PC patch for Rise of the Tomb Raider, build 1.0.616.4. This patch addresses a number of requests and bugs we have seen coming up in customer support as well as on the forums.Fixed Map sometimes not showing or showing the wrong region.

  • Fixed ALT-TAB in combination with Exclusive Fullscreen occasionally hanging the game or entire system. (Steam Only)
  • Fixed graphics glitches on NPC clothing on NVIDIA 6×0 and 7×0 hardware.
  • Fixed rare crashes with a “DX11 Internal Heap” error.
  • Added separate mouse sensitivity control for X and Y axis, allowing users to equalize sensitivity.
  • Added option to reduce in-game camera shake, for users that prefer this.
  • Added audio-cue for finding secrets in the relic viewer.
  • Fixed game changing system screen saver settings for some users. (Steam Only)
  • Added additional error handling and messaging in case the GPU driver is crashing or unresponsive.
  • Various performance improvements for GPU-bound situations. CPU bound scenarios are not impacted.
  • A variety of other smaller optimizations, bug-fixes, and tweaks.

While we expect this patch to be an improvement for everyone, if you do have trouble with this patch and prefer to stay on the old version we made a Beta available on Steam, Build 610.1, that can be used to switch back to the previous version.

Rise of the Tomb Raider for PC was released on January 28th this year. Stay tuned for more updates!
