First Vampyr patch is now available, fixes various issues, does not resolve stuttering issues

DONTNOD Entertainment has released the first patch for Vampyr. According to the release notes, this patch allows gamers to use Walk as a held input or a toggled input and properly displays the Recovering Icon when a citizen is healing.

Moreover, this patch fixes some green flickering issues, optimises the in-game menus and allows gamers to switch targets with the mouse wheel.

However, PC gamers report that this new switch feature has completely broken the targeting system. According to reports, once players move the camera it constantly switches/lock on to whatever is in line of sight. Furthermore, this patch does not improve overall performance and does not resolve the stuttering issues that gamers have already reported.

As always, Steam will download this patch the next time you launch its client, and you can find below its complete changelog.
