- The Invincible is a novel-based game, developed by Starward Industries for its 2023 release.
- The game just had its patch 1.0.3 come out, with a slew of new changes added to the title now.
- Some of the latest features in the wake of the update include ultrawide support and hardlock fixes.
The Invincible has been touted as one of the finer exploration-based games to release this year, thanks to Starward Industries taking up the challenge of reimagining Stanisław Lem’s titular novel in video game format. In recent times, the game has received a new update from the side of the devs, and unlike hotfix 1.0.2, The Invincible update 1.0.3 is a beefy one, bringing ultrawide support, and other changes.

“We want to thank every astronaut who has submitted a bug report or shared their feedback with us, and all of the astroscientists that have already taken part in The Invincible’s cosmic adventure! Together with your help, we have improved the playing experience on Regis III,” reads the blog post declaring the official patch notes.
Before we talk about the new changes introduced to the game, it bears repeating that The Invincible, following its previous update, now has a lower minimum settings requirement for running it smoothly. No more than a 2 GB or 3 GB card is required to get things going in Regis III in at least 25 to 30 FPS, which is fair enough if you’re a budget PC gamer.
Our performance tests proved that The Invincible will run on graphics cards with 2GB or 3GB RAM. In Full HD on High and Epic settings, the game should work at around 25-30 FPS. If you have AMD R7 260x (2GB) or Nvidia GTX 760 (2GB), you can enjoy the cosmic adventure to the fullest now.”

Now, as for some of the most prominent changes that have arrived in the wake of the new update, we’ve finally got ultrawide support making headway for the first-person space explorer, followed by a wealth of hardlock and softlock fixes that previously rendered The Invincible unplayable for many. Starward Industries also says that the old saves of players that didn’t load before should now work.
Here are some of the other changes that the devs have made to The Invincible as of update 1.0.3:
- Fixed the position of a saucer after the crash.
- Fixed a relay transmitter usage (showing/hiding) and added its missing shadow.
- Different minor quest/level design bug fixing (e.g. dialogue timings, hints, and interaction improvements).
- Improved body and camera movement while holding or using equipment.
- Improved controller input (it should feel more natural now).
- Improvements and further optimization for screen resolution and other graphic settings.
The Invincible was released on November 6, 2023, for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, with no cross-gen support for earlier systems. eXputer reviewed the sci-fi thriller and rated it 3.5/5, with Muhammad Haris Umer remarking, “While it may not be for everyone, The Invincible is nonetheless a brilliant sci-fi journey that will keep you on the edge of your seat.”
