In a post to Cd Projekt Red’s official forum, Marcin Momot wrote that the team behind The Witcher series are still hard at work on patches to the achy-breaky backpaining framerate problems, glitches and the ever annoying candles.
A list of the most requested changes suggested to the developers included candles getting in the way near interactive items and chests, problems with general stability and performance, rare crashes during loading screens and many others mostly relating to particular quests:
- Geralt will not longer interact with candles near chests and other interactive elements.
- General stability and performance improvements
- Significantly Enlarged GUI and HUD elements (including fonts) on consoles and slightly on PC.
- Improved camera smoothness
- Performance improvements during some cutscenes.
- Fixed case where game was crashing on loading a save in certain situations
- Various bug fixes and user experience improvements in GUI panels.
The details of the expected changes can be found here.
The patches will span out to every platform and will bring console versions to 1.04 and PC versions to 1.05. Since The Witcher 3’s release 2 weeks ago, CD Projekt Red has been releasing multiple patches and DLC in order to bring the game up to standard, though some have complained that the patches have brought along even worse bugs like reduced xp for some quests, though the majority of the community are praising the developers for their dedication to the game after release and to their consumers.
