Forspoken Update 1.03 released, does not bring major performance improvements, full patch notes

Square Enix has just released a new update for Forspoken. The February 7th Update is 200MB in size, and, from the looks of it, does not bring any major performance improvements.

According to the release notes, this patch fixes a crash that can occur when using a specific GPU. Ironically, Square Enix has not revealed that GPU which is… kind of weird? Anyway, this patch also resolves the audio issue we’ve mentioned in our PC Performance Analysis.

Unfortunately, this patch does not add any settings for the game’s Textures. It also does not improve the quality of the ray-traced shadows and ambient occlusion effects. Furthermore, it does not minimize its frame pacing issues.

Anyway, Steam will download this patch the next time you launch its client. Below you can also find its complete changelog.
