Rise of the Tomb Raider has now been updated to support DirectX 12 and Nvidia’s new VXAO Ambient Occlusion technology. 

Right now this patch is exclusive to the Steam version of the game, though the Windows 10 Store version of the game is expected to receive the DirectX 12 patch within the next few days. 

Nixxes states that they expect this update will bring performance improvements to all PC users of the game, though those who wist to continue using the older version will be able to revert to Build 629.1 using the Steam Beta update feature.
