New Rise of the Tomb Raider Patch Released with Major Fixes

Rise of the Tomb Raider released with a bunch of issues that would keep Crystal Dynamics busy for a good long while. They released the first patch of the game some time back but obviously that was not going to sort everything out right away, so here we are with the patch two.

The update is now live on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

First and the foremost, they have taken care of the Acropolis or Flooded Archives related save corruption bugs. They have also fixed a number of crashes, cinematic related bugs and more.

Here are the major fixes that the developers have made to Rise of the Tomb Raider:

  • Prevented a save corruption issue that was causing players to be stuck in the Acropolis or Flooded Archives.
  • Fixed issue that caused cinematics to become non-responsive when the console language was set to Dutch.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur if the title was started after installing the patch but before the full game was installed.
  • Fixed an issue where the player could run out of pistol ammo and not reload correctly when attacked by a Deathless soldier.
  • Prevented an issue in the Acropolis where the player becomes unable to crawl under a door after backtracking.
