Developer Criterion has released details of a second patch for the PC edition of Need For Speed: Hot Persuit, promising the update will turn a ‘good game into a great one’.
The forthcoming patch, which the firm claims gets to the ‘nitty-gritty’ of the game, will, according to the site ‘make the difference between a good game, and a great one’.
Criterion also said an issue with the AMD/ATI Radeon graphics cards, which sees the game crash when selecting an event in the map screen, will be sorted ‘around the second of December’ with the next release of AMD’s drivers (10.12).
A release date for the Criterion has yet to be announced, but here’s what will be included:-
Groundcover Graphical Errors
When alt-tabbing, the groundcover would start to corrupt, causing random tree images to appear all over the screen.
On some machines controller configurations that have been set up for wheels, pads, etc are not saving correctly to a configuration file. This is now fixed.
Rare crash when entering the Career map screen
The game sometimes crashes when entering the Career map screen quickly after booting the game.
Rare crash when streaming graphical data
Steering response reported as having large dead zone
Player car engine volume too low
