The PC version of Tomb Raider has received a second patch which offers several bug fixes for the game’s single and multiplayer components as well as some more tweaks to Lara’s hair.

TressFX is used to realistically animate Lara’s hair, but has been causing a lot of frame rate issues for players. This latest patch aims to correct some of these issues. You can check out the full patch notes below:

  • Addressed an issue in “Shipwreck Beach” where the mast on the wooden ship was occasionally missing depending on the player’s path.
  • Fixed a gating issue in “Research Bunker” where the elevator would get stuck in an unintended state.
  • Fixes for multiplayer connectivity
  • An issue related to security certificates that stopped many users from connection to Square Enix servers was resolved.
  • Improved messages when you are unable to connect with Square Enix servers.
  • Improvements to voice-chat for multiplayer
  • New Push-To-Talk feature, by default mapped to F1.
  • New voice-chat volume option.
  • Improved overall quality of voice-chat.
  • Fixes for crashes on startup in specific situations when no audio output is available.
  • Fixes for various reported crashes during both single-player and multi-player.
  • Movies are showing up again when using SSAA.
  • Cost of TressFX reduced, especially in combination with SSAA.
  • TressFX memory usage reduced for AMD Eyefinity and NVIDIA Surround setups.
  • TressFX simulation and graphical quality improvements.
  • New Ultra-quality shadow mode for contact hardening shadows. This is not enabled by default in any quality profile, but can be enabled from the advanced settings.
  • Improvements to fullscreen/windowed switching and multiple display handling.
  • Various UI improvements.
