More balance and bug fixes!
Back to Patch Notes


Through testing we have found that DirectX 12 provides a significant improvement in overall feel of the game as well as performance. As such we have made Fault run with DirectX 12 by default. For incompatible systems there will be an additional launch option to still use DirectX 11 through Steam. We will monitor the community's feedback and continue to work on optimization in future patches.

  • On your first match played the game will auto detect your visual settings and adjust them automatically.
