Developer Creative Assembly has broken the silence surrounding Total War: Warhammer 3 ever since the launch of the Forge of the Chaos Dwarfs DLC and released a small update for the title, which addresses various performance issues occurring since patch 3.0.

It’s just a humble list of changes, though hopefully they’ll have a big impact for those affected by the problems:

  • Replaced missing text strings in Forge of the Chaos Dwarfs.
  • Addressed significant FPS drops when panning across the campaign map with 3D UI enabled.
  • Fixed performance stuttering on 12th and 13th Gen Intel Hybrid-CPUs.
  • Issued a potential fix to a rare crash with sticky tooltips when assigning skill points.

Reactions to the update have been divided in the Total War community, as many issues remain without a fix, such as the delayed notifications or the synchronization issues in multiplayer. Many players are also unhappy about the low cadence of updates and the general lack of communication from Creative Assembly, which – sadly – has become a bit of a staple in recent months. Early tests suggest that the game runs a lot smoother than before for people now, so at least the measures seem to be working.

Creative Assembly’s post about the update also mentioned that more news around patch 3.1, which is set to bring more substantial changes to the game, will be coming towards the end of May. However, one community manager took to Reddit to clarify that it won’t just be news that’ll be dropping at that time, but actually update 3.1 itself.
