Crysis 3 PC Patch 1.2 Now Live, Data Patch C Incoming To All Platforms

The PC version of Crysis 3 gets patched as all platforms await an update that will tweak a few balancing issues with Crysis 3′s multiplayer.

Crytek writes on the official forums,

Thanks for all your helpful feedback on Crysis 3 so far, and for your contribution to making the gameplay experience the best it can be. As you can imagine, the post-launch period has been exciting and busy in equal measure as we gather feedback from players around the globe and make tweaks based on our own observations.

Patch 1.1 was released two weeks ago for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Check out patch 1.2 below, only for the PC.

PC Patch 1.2

  • Fixed after-match award dog tags from not loading from the profile correctly
  • Fixed root cause of some graphics driver crashes
  • Fixed particle shader causing black squares/broken shading on some graphics cards
  • Fixed shadering issue with underwater fog
  • Fixed issues with non-default controls for weapon customization
  • Fixed some issues with binding non-default vehicle controls

Crytek notes, “we’re currently experiencing some issues with dedicated servers not showing up correctly. We’re working on resolving this with our server providing partners ASAP.”

Later on, all platforms will be receiving Data Patch C which will tweak a number of multiplayer balance issues, including some matchmaking updates.

Data Patch C (All Platforms)

  • Developers Choice playlist updated to new game mode variation
  • Jackal fire rate decreased slightly
  • Jackal per pellet damage fall off increased
  • Fixed an issue where the Takedowns spread escalated too quickly in certain zoom modes
  • Grendel fall damage fall off reduced for better long range impact
  • FY71/SCAR damage fall off increased to reduce their effective range
  • Further matchmaking tweaks for X360 and PS3 to increase chance of local sessions being found
  • Foregrip and Muzzle Brake effectiveness reduced slightly
  • Laser sight effectiveness reduced slightly

Data Patch C’s release time is still to be confirmed.

That does it for this week’s updates. How are you enjoying Crysis 3′s multiplayer so far? Make sure to read up on our review if you haven’t yet.

    • Zack

      there is no freeze at 99% you just need patients

      • Thomas Huggins

        He’s not a doctor, so I don’t see how that would help…

  • Tim Timmy Tone

    fucking bows, im so good with it that I get 30 kills and 2 deaths.

    Someone at EA needs to get fired for not patching that…

    • Icky Vicky

    • Zchnalle

      It’s just a skillbased game were if you learn a weapon, you do good with it.

    Being colour-blind i find it very dificult to spot red-cloaked hidden enemies. Any chance this can be fixed?

  • Jeff

    I have downloaded the new patch and the game still freezes. It’s done it twice within 5 minutes. my other problem is that I am in the point in the game where I am trying to restore pnumatic pressure to the regluation assembly, and there seems to be some graphics missing. After playing it and wondering what the heck I was supposed to do, I looked on youtube. Someone had a video from an xbox game that showed a suspended crate and some water pipes that for some reason do not show up for me. I have an i7 and a Geforce gtx 670, which should be fairly capable of handling this game. Anyone have any ideas? You can email me directly at [email protected]. Thanks
