The patches just keep coming, and they're still pretty damn huge.
Developer CD Projekt Red has revealed the details for Patch 1.08 for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt ; you can find the long list of fixes and improvements in the game's forums .
There are changes to gameplay, performance, UI and graphics, and although there's no release date yet, we can expect this patch "quite soon." Notably, the patch brings "preparatory features" for the upcoming New Game Plus Mode , and it also does the following:
"In patch 1.07, the level requirements for certain items were scaled up, leaving some players stuck with only unusable gear. With patch 1.08, we are introducing the Wolven Hour potion. This potion will be available in everyone's inventory once they install the patch. It will reduce level requirements on all gear for a period of one hour.
This will give players time to level up or find alternative equipment using the gear that was available to them in patch 1.05 but became unusable after patch 1.07. After one hour, the potion's effects will cease and the requirements for all gear will revert to their original, pre-potion values."
Click the forum link above for a full list but you know, they really need to start looking at the water. There are numerous glitches and problems with boats; for instance, I have now fallen to my death three times when in a boat. How? If you're moving around or you try to get off the boat, sometimes your body will magically appear a hundred feet in the air, and then you fall on the boat and die. If you're lucky, you'll just hit the water and be okay. Either way, it's stupid.
And could you please make it so it doesn't take ten years for Geralt to let go of the tiller and maybe kill a Siren that's eating the side of the boat? Oh, and when you fast-travel to a harbor multiple times, boats get stacked on top of each other like a freakin' naval Jenga puzzle. Then they don't work.
'sigh' Favorite game so far this generation. Zero shot at Game of the Year because it might be the most unstable game I've ever played in my entire life.
