First Forspoken PC Patch released, full patch notes revealed

Square Enix has released the first PC patch for its latest action RPG, Forspoken. This patch is around 190MB in size, and below you can find its complete changelog/release notes.

According to the changelog, this first update does not bring any meaningful improvements for desktop gamers. However, if you game on the Steam Deck, you’ll definitely see some improvements.

As we wrote in our PC Performance Analysis, Forspoken currently suffers from a number of PC issues. For starters, its graphics do not justify their high GPU requirements, and we experienced some really weird framepacing issues. Furthermore, its Ray Tracing Ambient Occlusion seems pointless. You’d expect a noticeable improvement with RTAO but as we’ve showcased, the RT implemented feels kind of broken.

But anyway, Steam will download this update the next time you launch its client. Below you can also find its complete changelog.
