Geralt of Rivia’s final foray into the realm of gaming may have been put out into the wild months ago, but Polish developer CD Projekt Red seems intent on perfecting its epic fantasy masterpiece even further. Over six hundred changes and improvements have been made to both enhance the experience for players and to iron out whatever glaring issues had not been fixed with past updates. These changes include additional romance dialogue for primary love interests Yennifer and Triss due to fan request, easier navigation of menu systems, improvements to quest tracking and inventory management, and dozens of tiny bugs ironed out to make the game run more smoothly on both PC and consoles. The blog post mentions the update coming out for all platforms within the next few days, and one can only imagine that this massive update was planned to coincide with the release date of Hearts of Stone on October 13th. It makes sense, as players will be able to play through both the main game and the upcoming downloadable expansion with relatively little hassle or technical issues, making the game run as smooth as possible with the additional content while also fleshing out the main campaign and character interactions.
The full changelog can be found here, and it’s quite a hefty list.
In other recent CD Projekt news, it was recently revealed that Cyberpunk 2077, the next title that the studio will be focusing its development time on after the conclusion of The Witcher 3 and its downloadable content, will be far larger than the already enormous open world of the Northern Kingdoms found within Wild Hunt. While there is no definitive release date yet (or even a release YEAR, for that matter,) it has already been touted as the largest game CD Projekt Red has had its hands in to date. For a studio that frequently creates enthralling and gorgeous game worlds that take hundreds of hours to complete, that is certainly something to get excited about.
