With the anticipated release of the Game of the Year Edition of the upcoming The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt happening tomorrow August 30, gamers will heading to Gamestops across the world to play it. CD Projekt Red has announced that they have released a brand new patch for game. Gamers who bought the GOTY edition won’t have to pay for it, since the patch was already downloaded into the game.
The patch is called 1.3 and adds “welcome-sounding updates and improvements” according to Gamespot. One upgrade is for the character Vimme Vivaldi, a Dwarf banker. Vivaldi will be sporting a brand new look, but it is still uncertain about what the look will entail.
The new patch also fixes up parts of game play from the original.
The Witcher 3’s newest update also fixes a problem where two NPCs from the “Without a Trace” quest were impossible to defeat. Additionally, the Rabid Rock Trolls near the Dun Tynne crossroads are now “slightly less rabid” when playing on the “Just the Story” difficulty level. The update also fixes a problem where your horse Roach’s tail could vanish.
The Game of the Year/Complete Edition will be released tomorrow for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. The Game of the Year/Complete Edition will cost $50, which includes the base game, the patch 1.3, all official DLCs, including the expansions Hearts of Iron and Blood and Wine.
