The first major update of Deathloop has been released for PlayStation 5 and PC. When jumping into the game, players should notice several improvements, including a better behavior of NPCs (which is something that many players had asked for), support for the Nvidia DLSS technology on PC, and even an increase in stability general when ray tracing is on.
Bethesda announced update details in his web page. Arkane’s first update for Deathloop weighs a reasonable 5GB for PS5 players and 11GB for PC players. In addition to fixing various issues that are known to cause the game to crash, the developer also has made some other changes that will surely please your fans.
Perhaps the most notable of these changes is for Deathloop NPCs. Arkane says that their first game patch has improved game behavior, which should now be more reactive for players within the game. The change occurs after there have been some discussions about the NPCs Deathloop among the game’s fanbase on social media.
Some players argue that Deathloop NPCs work well for their intended combination of stealth and action gameplay, while others have felt their combat and decision-making tactics need improvement.
For PlayStation 5 players, the update also includes a calibration screen for HDR compatibility and a bad connection indicator on screen that will help gamers identify when they are having internet problems while playing against rival killers. PC gamers will see a similar bad connection indicator, but more importantly, the update also adds support for Nvidia DLSS, which should help improve performance for gamers experiencing frame rate issues during their games.
The update for the PC version also includes support for controller audio Sony DualSense, as well as the settings for fog quality. Also, both console and PC gamers should see better performance and stability when ray tracing is enabled in-game.
