Fans of the CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt can now look forward to getting a large feature update for the dark fantasy title in the near future. While detailing the upcoming console release of Patch 1.05 for The Witcher 3 on the developer’s official forums, community manager Marcin Momot confirmed that the team has already started working on the game’s next update. According to Momot, this new patch will bring many changes to The Witcher 3 and is expected to be available soon.
“At the same time we are working on another, pretty big update which will bring a large number of amendments to the game. This patch should follow shortly after 1.05.”
While specific details about the upcoming massive update for The Witcher 3 weren’t revealed, the developer did provide fans with a full set of patch notes for a new title update that will likely become ready to download for Xbox One and Playstation 4 fans later this week. Patch 1.05 for The Witcher 3 fixes a handful of known issues that users may encounter during play, including several quest bugs.
The next console update will also fix problems where a player’s money count resets after they amass over 65,535 gold. An issue where mutagen bonuses were improperly stacking has also been addressed. An exact release date for when Patch 1.05 will go live on Xbox One and PS4 has not yet been given, but Momot recently reassured fans via Twitter that the update is coming soon.
Continuing to make good on their promise to give players access to 16 free DLC packs for the Witcher 3, CD Projekt also announced the next two free add-ons which will be available for download across all platforms later this week. Giving fans more content tied to the Witcher 3’s seafaring island region, the next two free DLC releases feature a new contract quest and a new Skellige armor set. Both add-ons will be made available to all players on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
Once again confirming their commitment to further develop content for the Witcher 3 over the next two years, CD Projekt Red plans to keep the fantasy title as the studio’s primary focus, as reported by the Inquisitr. The developer revealed that they will slowly move more people over to work on Cyberpunk 2077, but all key team members will still be assigned to the Witcher 3 until the team fully shifts over to begin work on their new sci-fi property in 2017.
