Tomb Raider Gets Fixed Up With A Patch

By Ashley Woodcock, 5 years ago
Despite the need for various fixes and tweaks to Crystal Dynamics' recently released Tomb Raider, many of the community here at TrueAchievements seem to be enjoying Lara Croft's latest adventure, that's if the current 4.8 out of 5 stars is any indication.

Looking to keep the game thoroughly enjoyable and well-maintained, Crystal Dynamics have released the details on what's included in the second patch for the game. With bugs, crashes, and issues throughout the singleplayer and multiplayer, Crystal Dynamics Community Manager, Meagan Marie, gives us the full-list of changes:
