Quantic Dream has pushed out the first patch for Detroit: Become Human, the sci-fi adventure game which launched through the Epic Games Store last week.

Patch 1 for Detroit: Become Human is primarily aimed at tackling game stability and crashes, as well as error messages which may be related to the wrong version of Vulkan being used. Players are advised to ensure they have Vulkan 1.1 installed, while Quantic Dream has confirmed that older CPUs which do not support SSE 4.1 instructions will not be able to run the game. 

We’ve already taken a look at Detroit: Become Human’s PC performance so do be sure to check out our Detroit Performance Report. By and large it runs pretty well and looks great but it is incredibly CPU intensive.

The small update should automatically download through the Epic Games Store client.
