After then, a patch was distributed, which ought to have resolved the problem issues nonetheless surfaced. The sport was formally revealed on Tuesday, September 28th, and the primary tales about it started to flow into shortly after.
“Over the previous few days, we have obtained few studies from players who’ve had points with their GeForce RTX playing cards. After an in depth investigation, we have been unable to seek out any uncommon conduct on the a part of New World that may very well be the reason for these points.
