  • New graphics option ‘Specular Reflection Quality’ to enhance resolution and reduce aliasing of specular reflections, at some performance cost.
  • New graphics option to disable film-grain independently from ‘Screen Effects’.
  • Improved HBAO+ quality, including better occlusion for distant objects.
