Quantum Break PC Title Update 2 addresses frame rate woes

Quantum Break Title Update 2 arrived in Windows 10 PC on Saturday.

For some reason the patch notes don’t seem to have been released via Remedy’s usual channels; the set below comes from Gamespot. Although the notes don’t mention it, the site reports the patch adds a quit option to the main menu – something of an oversight in earlier builds.

Remedy PR manager Thomas Puha says the patch also adds menu toggles for film grain and upscaling. Again, this was not listed in the update notes.

Most importantly perhaps, the update apparently remedies a recurring frame pacing problem, one of a number of serious complaints about the PC version of Quantum Break.

The patch, along with its Xbox One equivalent, goes a long way towards resolving Quantum Breaks many issues. Unfortunately we’re waiting on a Windows 10 update to fix some Quantum Break crashes.
