It will be applied to by Steam automatically, all you have to do is restart your game. If your game does not update automatically after restarting, then restart the Steam Client. Let's take a look at the critical issues that have been fixed by Nixxes via the first Shadow of the Tomb Raider PC Patch.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Patch 1.0.230.8 Changelog

  • Steam Controller support (and the use of the Steam controller configuration UI) now has to be explicitly enabled in the gamepad options menu. 

    • This is intended to not have it interfere with the native Xbox 360, XboxOne and PS4 controller support, no matter how Steam is configured.
    • We recommend leaving this option disabled unless you intend to use the Steam controller.
    • For users using SteamLink, please refer to the fix provided here at step 8 of 'first things to check': LINK.
  • Some improvements to photo mode camera control, including bugfixes for when axis-inversion is being used.
  • Fix for a helicopter getting stuck in place at high framerates.
  • Fix for a texture issue encountered on some machine/setting combinations.
  • Improvements to stereoscopic 3D rendering.
  • Fix for a problem where the camera could unexpectedly turn away when Lara hangs on a ledge.
  • A variety of smaller fixes related to functionality, performance, and stability.
