Wild Hearts has received its first performance-focused PC patch

Expect Wild Hearts to run a lot better on PC thanks to the game’s latest patch

Wild Hearts’ PC launch has been a disaster, but Omega Force has been working to address the game’s performance issues. Now, Wild Hearts has a “Mixed” review rating on Steam, with PC gamers seeing much stronger and more stable performance from the game thanks to the title’s newest update. 

For the most part, Wild Heart’s new PC update focuses on PC performance, addressing “audio stacking” issues that could result in huge levels of CPU strain, and a bug that left high-end CPUs “unintentionally capped”. Thanks to Omega Force’s fixes for these bugs, PC gamers can now enjoy more stable performance within Wild Hearts. 

In addition to these CPU performance fixes, Wild Hearts’ latest update also fixes an issue that could allow save data to be corrupted on the game’s loading screens, and a graphical issue that caused game rendering issues on AMD’s RX 7900 XTX graphics cards. Below, we have included Wild Hearts’ full patch notes for the game’s newest PC update.

Patch Notes

Good news, hunters! A patch has just been deployed to PC today that addresses the following issues, including fixes to address frame rate performance:

– Fixed an issue where certain high-end CPUs were being unintentionally capped. High-end PC’s should see some performance improvements now.
– Fixed an issue where some sounds were not playing or were being delayed, causing the audio to stack. This ‘audio stacking’ issue was also causing strain on players’ CPU. As a result of this fix, players should see performance improvements across the board. The workaround using 5.1/7.1 audio is no longer necessary on PC.
– Setting default resolution to 16:9 1080p on first boot. The recommended spec for WILD HEARTS is aligned to a 16:9 1080p display, for first time users this will now be the default setting. You can change this setting to the resolution of your choice in-game.
– Fixed render issue (disco lights) when using an AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX.
– Fixed an issue on the save/load screen that could result in corrupted save data.
