A patch for the PS4 version of Firewatch has been released that promises to make a swathe of performance improvements to Campo Santo's open-world mystery.

"We just put out a patch for Firewatch for PlayStation 4 players on the PlayStation Network Store," the developer stated on its blog. "You should make sure your copy of the game is fully updated, as this patch significantly improves the experience across many aspects of the game."

The biggest changes include:

  • Draw distance and shadow render distance have been improved, which should remove significant texture popping.
  • Streaming loading and unloading has been significantly adjusted with extra safeties so you should no longer see loading happen right in front of you.
  • We got Unity to fix a very rare hang that could occur when loading and unloading scenes.
  • Many instances of unstable framerate have been improved.
  • Auto-saves are now far less frequent, as they were causing the worst framerate hitches we have been seeing.
  • Several places where people were escaping the world or getting stuck in collision have been refined. Also, if you are stuck in an endlessly falling state, the game will attempt to put you back, either through loading the last save or respawning Henry aboveground.
  • Various cases where you were able to interrupt or break your current quest have been safeguarded.

The performance improvements won't stop here, with Campo Santo continuing to work with Unity.

"We're currently working with Unity on further improving the game by upgrading to an upcoming version of their engine," says the dev. "We're also planning to add subtitles for other languages to the PS4 version. While we don't yet have a specific timeframe for these updates, we hope to announce them as we know more!"

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do..

I am making $89/hour working from home. I never thought that it was legitimate but my best friend is earning $10 thousand a month by working online, that was really surprising for me, she recommended me to try it. You will lose nothing, just try it out on the following website.
