Capcom has fixed up a few of the issues with the PC port of Dead Rising 3.

Tim’s review of Dead Rising 3 this weeks highlights a few of the game’s issues but Capcom has fired out a new patch today which may help a out a few of you with crash issues and resolutions.

This first patch addresses the following and it’s out now on Steam.

  • Fixed an issue which caused game progress to not save or load correctly when Steam Cloud is enabled.
  • Fixed an issue which made it impossible to select native resolutions on some video card / monitor setups.
  • Fixed an issue which was causing the game to not shut down properly.
Note that you may need to restart or log in/out of your Steam client to force the patch download. Download size should be around 10MB, and the patch is applicable to everyone who owns DR3.
Note on crash issues

Please note the team is still actively looking into fixing the initial load-screen CTD/hangs affecting certain Nvidia Optimus laptop users as well as the random in-game crash affecting a subset of desktop users. The information you have provided has given us good leads which we are investigating now. We expect to have more news for you soon.
