How to Fix Witcher 3 PS4 Error; New Experience Bug Discovered

"We have found the issue and started working on a fix."


The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launched last week behind rave reviews, but--being a massive open-world RPG--the game has suffered from a few enduring problems.

One of these issues, players explain the CD Projekt Red forums, involves the reduction or outright removal of experience points gained during missions and sidequests. As you might have guessed, players aren't happy about it. But thankfully for anyone encountering the issues, which appear to be affecting all versions of the game, CD Projekt Red is preparing a fix.

"We have found the issue and started working on a fix," a developer wrote. "We're especially sorry about this bug!"

It's unclear how widespread the issue is. Some are reporting that the bug started appearing after the latest Witcher 3 patch. We'll continue to monitor the situation as it develops.

In other Witcher 3 bug-related news, CD Projekt Red community lead Marcin Momot chimed in on Twitter to offer what appears to be a temporary workaround for PlayStation 4 error CE-34878. He also shared some advice for how to avoid fall damage. Check out the tweets below.
