Witcher 3 PC gets a Graphics and Stability patch

 

We already know that the Witcher 3 has received a visual downgrade, but that doesn't mean that many people have not still had problems running this title. Today a new patch for the game has became available, increasing the game's performance and fixing a number of bugs.

A console version of this patch is incoming, but here is a rundown of the PC's patch notes;

Most of these issues are solved by simply rolling back the NVIDIA driver.Quote

Now you don't need to roll back drivers

edit: Now with this patch I crash after a certain amount of time due to "No memory" even though I have 1.2GB of Vram still available and about 2GB of system memory left. Now it's just annoying me. It's random too. Can't predict it, it just happens after a I get the low memory warning prompt from Windows.Quote

Could be a thing now. I think this is one of the less expensive way to fight piracy for game developers. Just cripple the first release game and patch it gradually. Hundreds of changes and upgrades in several patches, phew. But they need to balance what is important to not anger or annoy buying-gamers, before the "fixes" are then released. The paralyzing things shouldn't ruin the game fantastically; could have been a quest that is broken, unvisitable places, throttled performance, disabled settings, etc.Quote

There have been other pirated games like this, and it made no impact on deterance at all. in fact the community came closer together to fix the broken parts of said pirated games. And no, I will not give examples for obvious reasons Quote
