  • Patch 1.08 Notes

    The next patch will be arriving quite soon. Please check the list of changes below.

    PERFORMANCE:
    • Overall improvements to performance, including some issues that may have been caused by 1.07.



    UI:
    • [Japanese Only][PS4 Only] Fixes an issue where the background text of certain books would flicker.
    • Fixes an issue where part of the Kaer Morhen map would not display properly.



    GAMEPLAY:
    • Fixes a rare issue where items would disappear from the stash.
    • Fixes a very rare issue which would cause Geralt to get stuck when trying to run.
    • The interaction pop-up will no longer appear on lootable objects that are empty.
    • Fixes an occasional glitch in one of the dwarf combat animations.
    • Heads chopped off during finishers will no longer disappear.
    • "Players can perform a roll just before landing to significantly reduce the damage caused by falling.
    • We've added a tutorial pop-up window explaining this to make it clearer."
    • 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.
    • Fixes an issue where players were unable to compare their items with ones sold by merchants.



    ACHIEVEMENTS:
    • Players will now be able to complete the Card Collector achievement.
    • Achievements are now working properly again and will be unlocked if players meet their requirements after installing this patch (PC version).


    GRAPHICS:
    • Fixes an issue where interiors would sometimes not display properly on the minimap.
    • Fixes an issue where certain world elements would sometimes be missing and noticeable visual glitches would be present while in Novigrad.



    QUEST:
    • Fixes an issue where players were unable to finish the "It Takes Three to Tango" quest, even though they had obtained wine at the Kingfisher.
    • Fixes an issue where Geralt would sometimes die after traveling to Velen in the quest "Something Ends, Something Begins."
    • The entrance to the area where the Sunstone is obtained will no longer be blocked off if the player exits it prematurely during "The Sunstone" quest.
    • Fixes an issue where players were unable to complete the "Get Junior" quest on certain occasions.
    • Fixes an issue where players were unable to finish the "Scavenger Hunt: Viper School Gear" quest due to a closed gate.
    • Fixes an issue where some players were unable to investigate rooms during the "Family Matters" quest, effectively blocking their progression.
    • Fixes an issue where players were unable to finish the "Hey, You Wanna Look at my Stuff?" quest.
    • Fixes an issue where players were unable to talk to Roche during the "An Eye for an Eye" quest.
    • Fixes an issue where Roche would stay at his camp instead of going to the Oxenfurt Bridge in the "Get Junior" quest.
    • Fixes an issue where, under certain circumstances, Yennefer would not appear in Oxenfurt during the "The Great Escape" quest.
    • Drowners will have a harder time killing Nidas during the "Black Pearl" quest.
    • Fixes an issue which led to an infinite loading screen during the "To Bait a Forktail..." quest under certain circumstances.
    • Fixes a rare issue where the basement was locked during the "King's Gambit" quest.
    • Fixes an issue where players were unable to free the merchant during the Person in Distress event in the Claywich area.
    • The trolls at the Circle of Elements will no longer attack Geralt if he opts for a peaceful resolution.
    • Fixes an issue where players were unable to talk to Roche during the "Brothers in Arms" quest.
    • Fixes an issue where Zoltan's card was unobtainable.



    GENERAL:
    • Preparatory features paving the way for the introduction of New Game + in the future.

        Still nothing about Skellige Most Wanted?

          Sounds great! Thanks for all the hard work. Really appreciate the continuous support!

          Fixing Skellige's Most Wanted in 1.09 then?
          And the abandoned site bug in White Orchard (which has been broken since the beginning)?

          And can you clarify "Players will now be able to complete the Card Collector achievement"??
          Does that mean missable cards from A Matter of Life and Death will be available to get if you missed the Gwent tournament at the masquerade ball?

            That quest has been hotfixed on PC already AFAIK. And Marcin mentioned that this will fix it on consoles as well.

                Basically means we won't see NewGame+ for a long time.

                    I see there is nothing addressing the Passage to Skellege quest where you find someone to take you there for the first time which is Level 22 and when you get the the main quest with Yennefer they are only level 16 for most of that part of the quest line. Which as you know means we get a whole 5 xp for about a dozen or so quest. This ever going to get fixed?

                      I hope the performance fixes related to 1.07 means I won't be stuck with 40fps with SLI GTX 980ti's anymore.
                      Hopefully a reason to update from 1.06

                        Looks very good, but can you please fix Npc's animation when they carrying boxes around, it looks like they're walking in air, please!...

                        - Add blood on Geralt's swords when fighting, it gives a lot of immersion,
                        - add quest filter in map window.

                        Thank you for continued support, can't get enough of The Witcher!...

                          I'm hoping "Novigrad: Closed City" will return to my "Completed Quests" category now, because it was "Completed" before 1.07, and now it's marked as "Failed" for some reason.

                          ---------- Updated at 02:55 PM ----------

                          "Players can perform a roll just before landing to significantly reduce the damage caused by falling.

                          this sounds cool.

                            Try disabling SLI perhaps? I'm using a 980 Ti and got everything maxed out, FPS is fantastic for me.

                              And for the Wolven Hour, it should solve some ''naked fights'' troubles
