Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus – First beta patch fixes Steam overlay, re-enables Async compute for AMD GPUs

MachineGames has just released the first beta patch for Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus. According to the release notes, this beta patch restores the Steam overlay functionalities, and adds driver version detection and dialog.

Furthermore, this beta patch re-enables Async compute for AMD graphics cards. Do note that Async compute requires the latest AMD driver 17.10.3 (you can download it from here). On the other hand, this beta patch also disables Async compute for NVIDIA’s GTX1080Ti GPUs.

Last but not least, this beta patch resolved an issue affecting the deployment of full game files in Japan, Bahrain, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.

  • Right click the game in your Steam library.
  • Go to properties, then the “Betas” tab.
  • In the dropdown, choose public beta as your branch.
  • Apply and you are good to go.
