  • Fixed an issue that could cause frame rate to be lower than expected during game play after viewing multiple eras in the Showroom.
  • Numerous other stability fixes.
PC players might experience one or more of these problems with crashes to desktop. Supposedly fixed in a Day 1 patch (this friday).

  • Nvidia 430.86 drivers and Steam Overlay will cause a crash. Please be sure to remove the Steam Overlay if you have that driver.
  • DX12 – AMD RX – You may experience crashes when using DX12 while Geometry Culling is Enabled. Please either make sure that Geometry Culling is either not enabled or run the game in DX11.
  • DX12 – MSI Afterburner – The game may crash if you go from Windowed mode to Fullscreen or vice versa. We are working with MSI for a fix – Known workaround: Either close MSI Afterburner or run DX11, close the game and then relaunch the game in DX12.

Note! If you have a Nvidia 970 card, run the game in DX11. It will most likely crash when played in DX12.

TLDR: Disable Steam overlay if you have newest Nvidia driver 430.86. Run in DX11 until fixed. Close MSI Afterburner if you're using that.

I thought this patch only adds cosmetic items to the store, and those points listed such as AI in the rain are being worked on for a future patch? There were some bug fixes unlisted also but I don't think much else in 1.10
