New Witcher 3 Patch Released
Robert Ainsworth / 5 years ago
The witcher 3 has had a new patch released to improve the gameplay even more.
The game was released on Tuesday and is taking the internet by storm. Its developers are the polish company, CD Projekt Red.
The new patch, is now available for download on PC, for both GOG and Steam users. Those on consoles will have to wait a bit more, but CD Projekt Red confirms on its website that their versions will be available very soon. Lots of major improvements are included in the update, starting with stability tweaks for the regular gameplay and the user interface.
Visual problems, such as grass and foliage rendering issues are also remedied, while the game’s overall performance when the Nvidia HairWorks technology is enabled has been improved. What’s more, when players select the Ultra graphics preset, they’ll receive anisotropic texture sampling at a 16x setting.Blood particles on water should display correctly, and players should no longer be able to shoot crossbow bolts at friendly characters (fun as that was).
Various other bugs that have been fixed relate to stamina regeneration, map interaction, input responsiveness from the keyboard, or the special effects have also been eliminated through the update.
The full change log is as follows:
