Deus Ex: Human Revolution – New PC Update Released; Improves Load Times By Up To 50%

Square Enix has just released a new update for Deus Ex: Human Revolution. No, this is not that hotfix that was issued two days ago. This is a brand new update that – among other things – improves the loading times. As with most updates that are distributed via Valve’s distribution service, it will be auto-downloaded next time you start the Steam client. Those interested can view the entire changelog after the jump.
This latest patch addresses:
-A frequent issue for AMD/ATI hardware users that can cause the game to crash on startup.
-Improvements to loading speed. The speed increase depends on machine spec and settings, but loading time improvements of over 50% have been measured on some machines.
Some control fixes:
-Diagonal movement is no longer faster as intended.
-Adjustments have been made to mouse sensitivity in response to user feedback.
-Mouse sensitivity for X and Y axis can still be configured separately, but is now consistent when set to default settings.
-The range of settings for mouse sensitivity has been adjusted to provide for more accurate adjusting.
-The default mouse sensitivity has been altered to be somewhat less sensitive.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
