The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Receives Patch 1.04 on PC

The PC version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has received a new Patch 1.04 today, which brings a “series of overall stability and performance improvements,” amongst other things.

According to CD Projekt RED, the new update brings further performance boosts with NVIDIA Hairworks. The feature will still take a major bite out of your system’s resources, but now should give better stable frames-per-second.

The game now recognizes 1280 x 720 resolution, and those playing the game at 720p will now be able to get a better display.

Prior to this patch, some of the key bindings were locked out. Once you’ve updated your game, simply enable “Unlock Bindings” from the options to be able to rebind all keys to your liking.
