Rise of the Tomb Raider PC Patch Fixes Camera Issues

Rise of the Tomb Raider

The latest Rise of the Tomb Raider PC patch has been released onto Steam. This patch focuses on the smaller optimisations in terms of graphics, and a few alterations to gameplay.

The patch notes were released on Steam today. It was noted though that Windows Store users will have to wait as work is still ongoing to get the previous updates applied to that version of the game.

The patch notes reveal the following updates to the game:

  •  Added new option to disable the camera automatically centring behind the player when strafing.
  • Fixed problems where animals may not appear on a 2nd play-through of the game.
  • Fixed a problem where occasionally the door to the Voice of God tomb is closed and cannot be opened.
  • Fixed a problem causing the game to not start on machines with 32 or more hardware threads.
  • Fixed some foliage flickering when Dynamic Foliage is set to High while the game is running 30fps or lower.
  • Fixed artifacts when SSAO/HBAO+ was enabled in combination with SSAA.
  • A variety of other smaller optimizations, bug-fixes, and tweaks.

While some of the updates probably will go unnoticed by the player, the camera alteration will be one that will be welcome. Especially for those annoyed in high-action scenes when the last thing they need is for the camera to centre behind Lara.

While there aren’t many updates that will improve performance, it is good to see that time is being taken to fix some annoying bugs and glitches that have been encountered. When they get in the way of enjoying the game, and in some cases even making progress they obviously need fixing.
