Upcoming patch also announced

A new patch for the PC version of Crysis 3 has been pushed out by Crytek which fixes, among other things, those annoying graphics driver crashes that some have been suffering from as well as broken shading.

Crytek also revealed that a new patch, Data Patch C, will be launching across all platforms in the very near future which addresses multiplayer issues -- mostly just damage tweaks.

You can view all patch notes below.
