A new Rise of the Tomb Raider patch is out for the Linux version

By - | Views: 10,644

Feral Interactive aren't just hard at work porting more awesome games to Linux and showing off new teasers, they're also patching up Rise of the Tomb Raider.

The latest update, released just today makes multiple improvements to the game:

  • Linux - Improved resource management on Nvidia devices when using driver version 396.18. The game should no longer crash when running at reasonable graphics settings for your hardware (2GB GPU - 1080p with Medium Texture Quality, 4GB GPU - 1080p with High Texture Quality)
  • macOS & Linux - Volume sliders now also apply to cutscene audio
  • macOS & Linux - Fixes a number of minor issues

Even before these fixes, the Linux port was fantastic. See my previous report on it here.

Don't own it yet? You can grab it from Humble Store and Steam.

Does the game still freeze if an application in the background steals focus like Telegram etc.? Or has that been fixed?

NVIDIA driver 396.24.02 (https://developer.nvidia.com/vulkan-driver) should fix that.

Well, if you ran their error report stuff they should have the details already, pretty sure it sends it to them although my memory of that is a little fuzzy.
