The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt came out in 2015, but the GOTY of its year is such a good and extensive game that people continue to play and expand their experience with it. The story of Geralt of Rivia has now arrived for every possible platform, including Nintendo Switch, and is accessible to anyone who wants to try it.

However, CD Projekt RED, the developer of the title (and also of the ill-fated Cyberpunk 2077) has been after a terrible bug for The Witcher players for some time. It’s a bug that sometimes prevented players from completing Geralt’s story and finishing the game, so it was important to fix it as soon as possible.

Now, with its update to version 4.01, it has finally put an end to this bug, and has also brought all kinds of improvements for its PlayStation, Xbox and PC versions that will allow fans to continue enjoying the title in the best possible way.

  • King’s Gambit: Fixed a bug where you couldn’t engage in the fight with the second Vildkaarl due to an invisible obstacle.
  • The Wine War: Added an earlier fix to the one fixed in patch 4.00, where the quest could not be completed if the player destroyed one of the required monster nests during exploration.

Fixes for PC
  • Fixed a bug where Screen Space Reflections would not work on PC even though the tweak was enabled. Players who have the setting set to high may experience an impact on performance.
  • Added a new performance mode for ray-traced global illumination, which can be activated by players with compatible hardware. It will improve framerate by prioritizing performance over accuracy and range.
Fixes for consoles
  • Fixed an issue where consoles could create more saves than the allowed limit.
  • Improved the quality of Screen Space Reflections on next-gen consoles.
  • Optimized Ray Traced Global Illumination on next generation consoles to improve Ray Tracing mode.
