Bethesda released a new Deathloop patch today that it says will partially fix for the game’s occasional stuttering issue. Version 1.708.4.0 is available now on both the Steam and Bethesda launcher versions of the game.
Bethesda says the patch “addresses an issue experienced by some players on PC whereby mouse-based camera movement could result in the appearance of ‘stutter.’”. Bethesda added that a separate stuttering issue seemingly caused by high framerates on PC will be addressed in the future once they have more information.
Despite positive reception overall, many of the game’s negative reviews on Steam included comments about stuttering during gameplay. While theories about what caused the stuttering ranged from everything including Denuvo DRM to memory write access errors, Digital Foundry’s latest video on the subject first indicated that the problem lied with mouse-based movement.
