Developer inXile Entertainment said that the patch has started rolling out on Steam, with other services following later. There are too many notes to list, but the most important ones pertain to memory optimisations, 50 loading screen tips and the ability to alt-tab about of the game while its loading.

Here are the highlights as published on the official blog.

  • Large amount of memory optimizations, particularly with audio, to improve performance and stability on lower-spec systems and 32-bit operating systems
  • Fixed enemy “unlimited AP” movement bug that allowed them to sometimes move much farther than intended
  • Extensive improvements and fixes to California questlines, particularly in Hollywood and Griffith Park. May require you to load an older save file before Hollywood to fully benefit
  • Added a travel speed toggle to the world map, allowing you to zip and zoom around if you so please (doesn’t affect encounters, only travel speed)
  • Custom portraits will now work correctly when Windows account username contains non-English characters.
    – Added support for “Very Large” text
  • Added 50 messages to load screens containing gameplay hints and tips
  • Loading now continues when the game is tabbed out, and pauses after finishing
  • Further UI fixes and improvements, such as new and correctly used icons
  • Many localization updates and bug fixes across all languages
