If you lucky enough to own consoles as well as a beefy PC rig that eats current generation game specs for breakfast, then this may just be the final bit of news to sway your decision of which platform to buy for.

A PC patch was released that massively improves the fairly atrocious load times in Deus Ex as well as a few more fixes, hit the jump for the info.

According to the news post on Steam, the update released addressed the following:

This latest patch addresses:

  • A frequent issue for AMD/ATI hardware users that can cause the game to crash on startup. Improvements to loading speed.
  • The speed increase depends on machine spec and settings, but loading time improvements of over 50% have been measured on some machines.

Some control fixes:

  • Diagonal movement is no longer faster as intended.
  • Adjustments have been made to mouse sensitivity in response to user feedback.
    • Mouse sensitivity for X and Y axis can still be configured separately, but is now consistent when set to default settings.
    • The range of settings for mouse sensitivity has been adjusted to provide for more accurate adjusting.
    • The default mouse sensitivity has been altered to be somewhat less sensitive.

So, for people like us in South Africa that only get the game on Fridays, we have the benefit of often never being exposed to the problems in the first place.

It makes you also wonder if the load times on the consoles could be improved with patches as well.
