The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's next patches will target a slew of glitches alongside some aesthetic changes, developer CD Projekt Red's Marcin Momot wrote in the game's official forums.

The patches will encompass all of The Witcher 3's versions and bring consoles to version 1.04 and PC to 1.05 . Some changes, like enlarged HUD elements including fonts, will span all systems. Here's Momot's full list:

  • 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

  • Fixed issue where some players were unable to run after Wandering in the Dark quest
  • Fixed issue where players were unable to talk to Eight after the Lord of Undvik quest
  • Too many wild hunt minions were spawned during Ciri's Story: Fleeing the Bog quest.
  • Fixed issue where Keira could sometimes fall under terrain during Wandering in the Dark quest
  • Fixed issue where Player was unable to move freely during Blindingly Obvious quest
  • Fixed issue where Player was unable to activate portal during Wandering in the Dark quest

In a subsequent post, Momot said that the developer is "looking into the frame rate issues on PS4 as well."

Since The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's release last month, CD Projekt Red has released several patches targeting elements like stability and graphics. However, some players reported that patches introduced their own set of bugs and undesirable changes, some of which the developer addresses above.
