Shadow of the Tomb Raider December 18th PC update fixes audio issues, Ansel & Co-Op Mode

EIDOS Montreal and Nixxes have released a new PC update for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. According to the release notes, PC patch #9 brings various fixes towards audio issues, ANSEL stability and Co-Op Mode stability, and adds Friends leaderboards to the Challenge Tombs menu section for each Challenge Tomb & Mode.

Moreover, adds support for the game’s second DLC, adds the option to change the selected COOP Challenge Tomb while in the Lobby with another player and brings various smaller bug fixes.

Unfortunately, Nixxes has not implemented yet the promised real-time ray tracing effects, though NVIDIA claimed that these effects will be coming soon to the game. From what we know, Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be using real-time raytracing for its shadows, enabling all light sources to cast proper dynamic shadows.

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