Beta Fixes (PC-Specific)     

We have seen how some people struggled with severe stutters/lag and irregular performance and we have made several fixes that will solve or at least improve those.        

A variety of fixes for crashes seen during the beta have been implemented, which includes certain older systems not being able to launch at all, but also some that occurred rarely during gameplay. We will keep monitoring for other crashes and will release updates as we have them.        

Multiple improvements and optimizations made to matchmaking.        

We have made fixes for issues surrounding microphone handling and muting other players.        

We have addressed some graphical issues, for example when using SSSR while having TAA turned off.        

We have solved issues with the Dynamic Screen Resolution feature, especially when it was combined with HBAO+. With those fixes we recommend turning on Dynamic Screen Resolution again (at your desired minimum frame-rate) to ensure you are able to stick to your desired frame-rate no matter how hectic the game gets.        

We have brought in some initial improvements to our support for ultra-wide and super-ultrawide screens, with us planning more for launch.        

Various other smaller fixes and improvements             

Feedback driven features

Camera Shake: Added an option in Settings to adjust Camera Shake Sensitivity

Motion Blur: Decreased amount of motion blur during sprint and flight        

Vaulting: Improvement to vaulting: We heard it was a little sticky, so we’ve worked on it!        

Drop Delay: Decreased delay of loot drops: Based on your feedback        

Default Settings: Changed default settings to wide combat camera distance, heavy targeting assistance and matchmaking disabled
