Asgard’s Wrath 2, the popular virtual reality game, has received its first patch, introducing significant visual enhancements for Meta Quest 3 users. The patch, announced just in time for Christmas, introduces two key features: a 90Hz toggle and enhanced visuals.
The 90Hz toggle allows for a higher frame rate, improving the smoothness of gameplay. Prior to the patch, the game ran at 72Hz by default, but with the new update, players can enjoy a more fluid gaming experience.
The enhanced visuals feature increases the screen resolution and the distance multiplier on levels of detail (LODs). This means that objects in the game will lose detail at a further distance, enhancing the overall visual experience and making the game more immersive.
However, Meta has advised against overclocking these settings, as not all scenarios have been tested. Overclocking could lead to stuttering in some instances and may have unintended effects on battery life and overall device performance.
In addition to these visual enhancements, the patch also includes various bug fixes and improvements, further enhancing the gaming experience for “Asgard’s Wrath 2” players.
One of the improvements is about the fishing bait that receives a significant buff. Now, you can also stack up to 5 multiple rewards.
This patch is the first step in addressing the lack of graphical enhancements for Quest 3, despite the new headset having more than twice the GPU performance. More graphics options are expected to be introduced next year.
The patch is a welcome update for fans of “Asgard’s Wrath 2,” who were initially disappointed with the lack of optimization for the new and more powerful VR headset. The game was released bundled with Meta Quest 3, but without any specific enhancements for the new device. Players are now delighted by the possible communication with the developers and that they receive a response.
Last but not least, there are still some changes that need to be made in the gameplay, like including the option to remove the action from clicking the left analog stick. This creates issues for some players. When in the heat of a battle, your character responds that it doesn’t need this right now by accidentally clicking it and trying to heal itself.
With everything said, there is a bright future for Asgard’s Wrath 2 if the developers continue in the same way, paying attention to the community, interacting with them, and listening to the feedback. They have delivered the much-needed patch in just four days, and they deserve some credit for it.
The patch is expected to be the first of many as the developers continue to evaluate the feasibility of additional enhancement options for “Asgard’s Wrath 2” on Quest 3
