CD Projekt RED continues to be hard at work squashing any and all bugs that befall Geralt of Rivia and his monster-slaying crew in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and they’ve revealed the changes that will be coming in the 1.04/1.05 update coming soon to consoles and PC.
On the developer’s official forums, community lead and website coordinator Marcin Momot said that a bug that has players stuck in the Pyres of Novigrad quest will be fixed?this is probably the most serious issue on the list. Plenty of changes that improve the overall user experience will also be included in the updates, including Geralt ignoring candles “near chests and other interactive elements.” Sad news for those of us who love igniting any and all light sources in the game, but probably best for the overall game experience.
User interface and HUD elements will be enlarged with the update, particularly on consoles. Players will also see “performance improvements” during cutscenes, another area where the game sometime chugs along.
In spite of these bugs, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an excellent game and a landmark achievement in the open-world genre. Our review is coming later today, so keep an eye out for it.
