GRAPHICS IMPROVEMENTS

  • Added Nvidia’s DLSS scaling technology.
  • Added AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution, replacing FidelityFX CAS.

UI CHANGES

  • Custom settings screen to facilitate the addition of DLSS and FSR.
    • The Render Scale option has been removed, but the same result can now be achieved by changing the Upscale Method setting to Simple and adjusting the Upscale quality.

PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTS

  • Improvement of the shader management system. This will result in a few notable differences:
    • There is no longer a pre-compile step for the shader at startup. The game always compiles shaders on load and in the background.
    • Stuttering during gameplay that used to occur due to background shadow compilation is now significantly reduced.
    • Since shader compilation is still happening in the background, you may notice that the game has higher CPU usage while that is happening.
    • Loading screens wait for the required shaders to fully compile. As a result, screens may take a little longer to load on certain systems.
    • On machines with higher specs and faster CPUs, loading screens will typically be shorter due to a more efficient shader compilation that makes better use of high-end CPUs.
