CDProjektRED have been super busy since the launch of Witcher 3, with 15 free DLC packs handed out, and the 16th and final one (New Game Plus) coming soon. They haven’t however been too busy to keep supporting the game with various patches and fixes.
Patch 1.08 is due any time soon and implements some much needed fixes for issues that 1.07 introduced (such as Geralt getting stuck in certain places and some quests becoming broken), players will also be getting a new free potion in their inventories, named “The Wolven Hour”, this potion reduces the level requirements on equipment for players as 1.07 accidently raised the levels some gear needed, so this reduces it back down while the player quickly goes and levels up!
“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.”
The final implementation is some behind the scene work for the NG+ DLC.
Are you still hyped for NG+? Were you affected by the 1.07 patch at all? I am glad of the fixes, it shows their commitment to fix things they even break, with speedy turnarounds for issues that they find.
