We have taken the decision to move back Patch 2 slightly to increase the amount of fixes included in it. We will have more news on it later this week.
Before then, Patch 1.5 will release which contains one important fix.
Patch 1.5 will enter public BETA testing today. It will not automatically update your game at this time, you can download it should you wish to participate in the BETA test by following the instructions below:
Patch 1.5 Contains one fix:
- Should improve Campaign Map frame rate in the majority of cases for those people with high-end graphics cards combined with mid-range CPUs. Those people who have noted high frame rates in battle but single-figure frame rates during Campaign Map play should see a notable increase in performance.
EDIT: In order for these changes to come into effect you must start a new campaign.
If you’d like to use it rather than wait for the official hotfix:
In your steam game library, right click Total War: Rome II. Then choose Properties and select the BETAS tab. Finally select “patch1.5” from the drop down list.
Please do be aware that this may not work or solve your specific issue and you take part in any beta tests at your own risk. If you do not wish to assume that risk please wait for the official live update.
