Among matchmaking and collision adjustments, including a fix for a bug that previously prevented players from accessing the Umbral ending, a swath of performance improvements have been added to Lords of the Fallen as well in an attempt to better the overall gameplay experience. Here is a rundown of some of the new changes that players can expect in this regard: 

  • Added additional precalculated PSOs to further reduce micro-stuttering throughout the game world.
  • Removed redundant collisions only on far-distance assets in the Empyrean Vista. All affected elements are out of the gameplay area.
  • Improved performance in the level art of the Upper Calrath nobles area by removing cast shadows from numerous assets without any impact on quality.
  • Optimized the Umbral level in Skyrest Bridge (Rampart and Parapet) by deleting hidden meshes and adjusting camera occlusion and pixel depth in certain meshes.

On a side note, Lords of the Fallen is currently 34% off for its Standard Edition on Steam, and the Deluxe Edition has been treated to a 30% discount too. These promotional prices will run until November 28, so best act swiftly if you haven’t jumped in on Mournstead as of yet.
