Shadow of the Tomb Raider Patch #3 available for download, fixes DX12 problems, full release notes

Nixxes and EIDOS Montreal have released a brand new patch for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Now I know that some of you already saw the article about the Windows 10 October update being available and adding support for raytracing. So in case you’re wondering, no; this patch does not add support for NVIDIA’s RTX tech.

This third patch for Shadow of the Tomb Raider brings a large number of smaller stability and functionality fixes, updates VO and localization in various languages, packs fixes related to some players not being able to achieve 100% completion, and fixes DX12 problems specific to Windows 10 version 1511.

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