Deathloop, here’s the first big patch: better ray tracing on PS5, DLSS on PC

Exactly one month after its launch, which took place on September 14th, Deathloop received the first major patch in its history. Game Update 1, which weighs 5GB on PS5 and 11GB on PC, improves several aspects of the gaming experience, enhances the technical aspect and fixes numerous bugs. Let’s find out all the details together.

Among the most important changes for the PlayStation 5 we report the addition of a calibration screen for HDR and the improved performance and stability in ray tracing. On PC, however, we emphasize adding the Nvidia DLSS support, support for Sony DualSense controller audio and fog quality settings. Below you can find the complete changelog.
