Tomb Raider PC Patch Fixes Nvidia and Intel Hardware Issues

A number of important updates were included with the PC version of Tomb Raider patch. In addition, Crystal Dynamics rolled out a bunch of fixes for Nvidia and Intel hardware as well as fixed a bug in later missions which prevented progress for some players.
