PC only

Fixed an issue with the game requiring the AVX CPU feature which lead to crashes on very old CPUs that don’t have it (this affects 10+ years old CPUs). Instead of crashing, the game will instead not display videos on these CPUs anymore as a temporary workaround. We will provide a thorough fix in a later patch.


PS5 only

Fixed an issue where the trophies for finishing Campaign missions were not getting awarded. Loading a save game just before a mission was finished and finishing the mission again will now properly unlock the trophy.


Xbox One consoles / PS4

Improved loading algorithm for better performance when scrolling over the map.
