Sable: Photo Mode Now Available in Latest Update

Sable Steam

Sable is an open-world adventure game where you guide the titular character as she explores the desert world of Midden on a hoverbike. It boasts a unique and impressive art style, which is a shame because this game didn't have a photo mode initially. But that has changed with the latest update.

The Photo Mode Update for Sable is now available, and you can now take stunning photos of the beautiful places of Midden directly from the game itself. The feature is pretty simple and straightforward, though you have to enable it in the settings menu first. Once done, you can simply just press the “X” key on the keyboard or the “Up” button on the controller.

The latest patch for the game also adds anti-aliasing as a display option (which is enabled by default). A new setting that allows you to resize in-game text has been added as well.

Aside from that, the developers made some optimizations. The engine version has been upgraded to reduce the micro-stuttering when playing Sable. Other enhancements were applied to terrain rendering, AI agent simulation, and virtual camera updating.
