It’s been a while since we last had a raft of bug fixes and gameplay improvements for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but don’t worry, CD Projekt haven’t forgotten about you. As of today, patch 1.12 has been made available for owners of the game on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, introducing a massive amount of fixes and improvements to both the base game and DLC expansion Hearts Of Stone.
CD Projekt’s community manger Marcin Momot let his fans know earlier today on Twitter that a Christmas list’s length of changes would be releasing, but declined to reveal what exactly fans could expect.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt released in the Spring last year to rave reviews from practically the entire internet (including us), and has since been labelled by many as the best game of 2015. It may be the last game in the series to feature Geralt of Rivia in the role of main character, but CD Projekt aren’t done with him just yet.
DLC expansion Hearts Of Stone was just the first of two promised expansions to release for the Witcher 3. The second, Blood And Wine is due out sometime this year, but CD Projekt aren’t quite ready to give us all a release date just yet. They have, however, promised that it’ll be massive in both ambition and size.
