The Witcher 3 Xbox One Patch 1.03 Coming Tomorrow; PS4 Getting Bigger Subtitles and More in Next Patch
The Xbox One version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, still hasn’t received patch 1.03, while the PS4 version got it between Tuesday and yesterday, while the PC version is already on 1.04.
Community Coordinator Marcin Momot mentioned in the Witcher 3 official forums that will be available shortly and will feature a 30 FPS cap as the PS4 version, as well as a fix to the bug that causes loss of save games.
“The 1.03 patch on Xbox One will feature both, the FPS lock on 30 and will remove the save problem. We are hoping it will go live by Friday.”
For the PS4 version the next patch (1.04) will include a bigger font for subtitles alongside many quest fixes. Whether the same changes will carry over to the Xbox One version, was not specified.
“The next patch (1.04) should contain fixes to the quest bugs you guys have been reporting and an increased subtitle size.”
As we have previously covered users experiencing error ce-34878-0 on PS4, completing the quest "The Mystery of the Byways Murders" will eliminate the error. The next patch will resolve the issue permanently.
“Yes. By completing this quest you will get rid of the error. This is a temporary workaround and it will be permanently fixed in the upcoming patch.”
Regarding the issue causing microstutters on the PS4 and PC, while riding at walking speed, Momot mentions that is being worked on.
“The stutter issue is also on our radars. Working on it. Thanks for reporting everything. We do what we can do get rid of all the bugs but it takes some time. Thank you for your patience!”
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.
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.
