The update, which is being referred to as a hotfix rather than a full patch, is available now on PC and is coming to console later.

This is the typical course of action, with patches released first on PC before coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later on, often in that order.

The Witcher 3 was the best-selling game of May in the United States, according to NPD data. GameSpot scored the open-world RPG a perfect 10/10.

  • Fixes the endless loading screen when fighting the Ice Giant during the quest 'Lord of Undvik'
  • Geralt's clothes will no longer be wet after leaving the menu
  • The gate in the crypt now works correctly during the quest 'Scavenger Hunt: Viper School Gear'
  • Fixes the lack of interaction with Roche on Oxenfurt Bridge in the quest 'Get Junior'
  • Fixes an issue that prevented players from creating more than one item via Crafting/Alchemy
