VR support[edit]

Issues fixed[edit]

Exclusive fullscreen graphics mode can cause CPU overheating[edit]

When set to use exclusive fullscreen mode, the game can push very high (and unnecessary) CPU utilization, which in turn can lead to thermal throttling or shutdown. This can be resolved by setting the graphics mode to borderless windowed, with no discernable decrease in game performance.[2]
Set Display mode to Fullscreen borderless window
