For those of you of that might not have been paying attention, ReCore released last month to some rather mediocre reviews. While there are numerous problems with the gameplay, the biggest reason for such a lukewarm reception have been the technical issues - most notably the extreme loading times, annoying glitches, and frequent crashes.

Thankfully, the developers haven't been slacking off the past few week as they have just recently updated ReCore with a whole bunch of improvements. You can expect to see decreased loading times, improved enemy textures, the ability to die without the game going completely haywire, and various other little fixes and additions. Since there aren't any actual patch notes, mostly because this was a purely technical update, allow me to share with you what the developers wanted to accomplish with this patch:

"In this update, you will experience decreased loading times, see audio and visual improvements, and notice improvements to issues you may have experienced with waypoints, achievement tracking, collision locations, checkpoints and respawn points. 

And for anyone who has experienced a Window 10 issue where the full game of ReCore downloads again during an update, a separate Windows fix is available now. All Windows 10 players are encouraged to download the Windows update (Version 1607) immediately to avoid this issue."

Before you head over to download the update, do bear in mind that even though it seems quite diminutive - its actually rather large in size. How large? About 5.5 GB worth of large! In other words, unless you have a great Internet connection I would advise you download the update overnight rather than spending a few hours just staring at a progress bar. Either way, have fun with a hopefully less buggy version of ReCore!
