The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt continues to get more patches to address several issues, and we learn more information about the upcoming patch 1.05 for PC and 1.04 for consoles.

Community Coordinator Marcin Momot mentions that the fix for XP not being distributed properly might actually come in the full patch 1.05 for PC, which will be released on Tuesday or Wednesday.

“That’s correct. It’s getting fixed next week. We were trying to release a hotfix on Monday but since the 1.05 on PC is coming right after that, we might just release 1.05 and include the XP fix in there as well. That will happen most likely Tuesday/Wednesday.

We do not stop working. We are trying to fix everything. Thank you for your understanding.”

Momot explains that the patch will fix most affected quests, including the Pyres of Novigrad.

“1.05 is coming after the weekend. This patch will address majority of bugged quests.”
“The Pyres of Novigrad quest will be fixed in the upcoming patch, both on consoles and on PC. Sorry about the delay.”

Regarding consoles Momot mentioned that the next patch for the PS4 should come between a week and a week and a half:

Momot states that the team hopes to take care of the microstutter issue with patch 1,04.

The issue of showing the wrong total play time is being looked into.

The 30 frames per second lock on Xbox One released with the 1.03 patch is fixed and there’s no switch to deactivate it.

A new mod for the PC version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been made available, named E3FX which as the name suggests it tries to mimic the E3 2013 trailer. You can check out and download the mod here.

CD Projekt RED has finally released the new update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with the free DLC on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4. The update includes a sexy new look for Yennefer and a new mission for Geralt.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt had the biggest UK release of the year so far, crashing Battlefield Hardline’s week one sales by 53 per cent. 63% of physical sales were on the PlayStation 4, followed by 32% on the Xbox One and 5% on PC. The majority of PC sales were digital though. On top of that it seems that it managed to top both the Steam and Green Man Gaming charts as well.

The game has received another patch and the patch notes state an improvement of the texture rendering quality on High and Ultra settings.

The Witcher 3 Hunter’s Config is a nice little tool offering easy access to graphical options, and it’s certainly worth a look.

As we have previously covered a few adjustments in the ini files can improve the grass quality in The Witcher 3, as well as the performance. A workaround on how to run HairWorks on AMD GPUs without crippling performance, has also been made available, enabling AMD GPU users to enjoy The Witcher 3 with HairWorks enabled, while getting better performance than GeForce users not using a Maxwell architecture Nvidia GPU.

A set of beautiful 4K screenshots of the PC version and some 4K gameplay footage, demonstrates just how amazing The Witcher 3 can look.

The Witcher 3 is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. We will bring you any new information on The Witcher 3 as soon as it becomes available.
