Avalanche Studios have published a blog post on their official website announcing that a long-awaited patch is now available on consoles.
The patch aims to fix the loading times which many players have complained about, which had tarnished the game’s player rating on it’s Steam page. The update is available now on PS4 and Xbox One, with the PC patch coming tomorrow.
In the 1.02 patch (132.1MB), you can expect:
+ Significantly improved loading times
+ Optimizations to online stats
+ General stability fixes
+ Fixed an issue related to challenges, wherein vehicles sometimes disappeared when starting a challenge
+ Fixed issues related to screen resizing and closing the game window before the game has fully started up [PC ONLY]
Digital Foundry have analysed the patch, noting that loading times have certainly been improved but those looking for a huge increase in the game’s reliability will be disappointed. See their analysis below.
