A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one. The new audience from xbox game pass is also great for the games longevity.

64 bit? Nice, I'm hoping that will solve some performance consistency issues. Kudos to all that are staying and improving this game, despite it's age. Kudos devs and helpers.

I'm sorry for being dense, does this mean the map patch will come with this update or after it?

What does this mean for the stability of the game? Will it be a noticeable improvement? :o

If all works fine, we have 64 bit AND mappatch in 1 patch.

It should. Modern processors/Win10 x64 handles 64bit executions much better than 32bit ones. Along with the higher memory availability to the game, it should definitely lead to more stable FPS, less crashes and better memory management. In theory, it should help greatly, but we will have to see the final result. Hence the BETA, to check how most systems handle the game, and how the 64bit client handles most systems. I remember back when first x64 Windows started rolling out that there were improvements in FPS/memory latency, etc. in 64 bit applications (compared to identical 32bit) only due to the fact that the 64bit OS + 64bit Program had much better registry optimization. I remember reading an article about it. How windows registry in 64 bit is vastly superior to 32 bit.

One thing people tend to forget is that even low range CPUs and GPUs are enough to play today's AAA games in fluid 60 FPS. In theory, a 1GHz core/memory clock in GPU and i5/Ryzen 5 level CPU has enough raw power to compute everything. The reason why people get bad performance comes from the communication between the hardware and software which is mediated by the API. Vulkan or DirectX. (efficiency of DX and Vulkan is still low, will need to wait for prodigy kids to optimize it)
With all that in mind, optimizations to the code by updating it to 64bit should lead to improved performance.

Wait, was it 32 bit this whole time...?


I think so. The game came out in 2013, and it was at least a year in development (min of min), and back in those days, 64bit windows were just beginning to set themselves as a standard instruction set. I remember that around 2011, most of the computers being sold were x64. Around 2008 x64 became standard, technically. Still most of the world used 32bit. Pretty much all devs back then were building on 32 bit set.

Will we have to download more RAM to take advantage of this???

Wow, maybe in another eight years we will have new and improved modding tools and the ability to add textures.
