Tomb Raider patched on PC

Tomb Raider has been patched on PC, bringing a few essential fixes to the game.

A post on the developer blog reveals the following updates via the patch:

- Resolved a problem where mouse control in the basecamp upgrade screen would not work properly since build 742.0.
- Stereo3D parameters for strength and depth can now be modified in the registry beyond their normal in-game range again.
- GPU performance improvements, specifically at higher quality levels.

It seems that the developer has not been able to solve some issues though:

"Unfortunately we do not yet have a resolution for the players that are experiencing crashes and major graphical corruption on NVIDIA hardware. Some progress has been made though, and we expect hope to have an update soon."

The patch should be applied automatically next time you start Steam.

How is it that great games receive a patch all the time, while those that need them, don't get them? Finished TR this week, definitely one of the best games in 2013 ;)

All depends on the developer I guess. Some developers see it being too expensive to patch the games. And I believe Sony and Microsoft are still charging them to patch. So can't afford to patch it. Especially if the game doesn't sell as well as needed. Others just want the money so focus on DLC which include the patches, others just don't care and take the money with no intention to fix problems.

It's my understanding that only M$ charge for updates, it's either that or they significantly more than Sony, I can't remember, but I'm almost certain that patchs are free on PC, maybe a small charge on PS3, but it's M$ that charge about $40,000 a patch, which makes it so only mega blockbusters like Skyrim get good support, while a lot of lesser games are just left to die, but they shouldn't be releasing broken games in the first place.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
