Tomb Raider PC Update Adds 99 Saves, DX11 Improvements
The PC version of Tomb Raider has received another slate of bug fixes and optimizations in its latest title update.
The patch, which is available for download automatically through Steam, delivers some new DirectX 11 optimizations that should offer noticeable improvements to the framerate, better shadows, and proper support for stereoscopic 3D.
Additionally, the patch adds a new “Last Campsite Save” which automatically saves your progress up to the last campsite you’ve visited, so you won’t have to do any backtracking.
If you’re running an Nvidia card, be sure to grab the latest drivers optimized for Tomb Raider.
