Improvements and fixes never stop for a game as vast as the Wild Hunt and a huge Witcher 3 patch is now available that has responded to many of the complaints left behind by previous updates. The 1.08 patch comes with various fixes on gameplay bugs that either solves issues with odd disappearances or quest completion.
It has been a particularly painful thorn in the side of gamers worldwide playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that they were sometimes unable to finish certain quests due to being stopped by a bug. Players have been furiously searching for fixes on Google and demanding for something to be done in order for them to properly experience the game.
Game developer, Projekt RED, has just released a new patch that deals with all the reported issues and more. The update has a size of 2.1GB out of the entire total of 7.5GB of game patches already available, so gamers who enjoy the adventures of Geralt of Rivia are warned to clear some space up on either their PC, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.
The patch follows up on reported glitches, along with some problems left behind by the previous 1.07 update. It introduces the use of a new potion, the Wolven Hour, which offers players one hour worth of time during which their items lose all level restrictions. They may use them for sixty minutes before they return to their previous requirements.
The feature was easily explained due to the fact that the 1.07 patch meddled into the re-balancing of items in order to make the game as realistically difficult as it should be. This has left many players with virtually unusable items in their inventory and no means to acquire new gear. The Wolven Hour potion will give them one hour to find level-appropriate equipment or level up.
The second feature highlighted within the patch is the Card Collector achievement and fixing several issues with the achievement system in general. Projekt RED promises that is should all be working smoothly now.
What is not underlined in the Patch Notes, though, is the fact that the update seems to pave the way for the highly anticipated New Game+ (NG+) mode that is promised to be released sometime in the near future. The NG+ will allow players to continue exploring the vast open world after completing the game at a higher difficulty.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has already been deemed as one of the best RPG games ever made and it hasn’t even released its two promised expansions yet, so it’s expected to hold its place in the top for a long time.
