Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy feature 2

Latest Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy PC Update brings graphics memory improvements, fixes numerous bugs

EIDOS Montreal has released a new patch for the PC version of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. According to the release notes, PC patch 2980512 brings some graphics memory improvements which may reduce stall issues on some setups.

Moreover, this update fixes a number of bugs and issues. For instance, it fixes multiple rare issues where enemies may become stuck into walls and block combat completion. It also fixes an issue where the user could become stuck in Guardians ability menu after spamming interaction button.

For those wondering, this patch does not resolve the pop-in issues we mentioned in our PC Performance Analysis article. It also does not fix the Maxwell issues we’ve reported. As EIDOS Montreal stated, NVIDIA is aware of this issue and will have to fix it via a new driver.

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