CD Projekt Red is releasing a brand new patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, alongside the open-world action RPG's Game of the Year Edition that launches for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The Witcher 3's update 1.30 will address a wide range of technical problems, quest bugs, gameplay glitches and visual issues, according to its changelog.
Some of the issues addressed in the update include a fix for Geralt's horse Roach's vanishing tail, one for the glitch that made two NPCs from the 'Without a Trace' quest impossible to defeat and tweaks to the loot randomisation system. The oil descriptions of the swords will be removed while the Adrenaline Rush buff value during the fight against a group of bandits in the "Capture the Castle" quest will be corrected.
The patch also notes that Dwarf banker Vimme Vivaldi is "now sporting a new look" which the Rabid Rock Trolls near the Dun Tynne crossroads will be "slightly less rabid".
The new patch will add PlayStation controller prompt icons, fix the Steam controller issues and repair the problem where craftable items in New Games + mode could have incorrect level requirements.
Meanwhile, The Witcher 3's Game of the Year Edition. which will include the base game and all the free DLC and updates the game has received so far, including the Hearts of Iron and Blood and Wine expansions, will sell for $50.
Here is the complete list of changes included in patch 1.30.
Released nearly a year ago, The Witcher 3 has proven to be quite a successful title for the developer, driving CD Projekt Red's profits together with their Good old Games service. According to its recently released biannual financial report, the company reported sales revenue of 319 million zloty and 135 million zloty in net profit for the first half of 2016. Although these figures are lower than their earnings during the same period last year, it has driven the CD Projekt's stock price and value up with the company now valued at $1bn.
"We're wrapping up a very busy six-month period," CD Projekt CEO Adam Kiciński said in a statement. "Our second expansion for The Witcher 3 – Blood and Wine – was widely acclaimed and, together with the base game, generated most of our sales during this period. But we're not done.
"On 30 August we're releasing The Witcher 3: Game of the Year Edition for all those who haven't yet had the chance to play the most celebrated videogame of 2015. In later months we will focus on the recently announced multiplayer card game – GWENT, with a closed beta launching on 25 October."
With the Blood and Wine expansion as the game's final piece of post-release content, the developer will now shift its focus to its highly anticipated sci-fi RPG, Cyberpunk 2077 and its standalone Gwent game.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available now for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
