Issues fixed[edit]

Crash during/after ending cutscene[edit]

  • During the ending cutscene, the game may crash immediately after Jacob appears, with an error message saying that "A problem has occurred with your display driver"
  • If that cutscene is skipped, the game may crash immediately after selecting "Continue" at the main menu.
Disable DirectX 12[citation needed]
The first time you play the game after finishing the main story, there will be a short conversation between Lara and another character; after this conversation, DX12 can be safely re-enabled.
