Kingdom Come: Deliverance released patch 1.3 stating in the patch notes as “over 300 other fixes in various quests”. Most fans of the series may be happy (or not) to know that there is now a save and exit option, so if you need to leave the game you can now.
A few other big points that the developers have fixed are with the lockpicking skill. There were a lot of complaints about this skill and those that play Kingdom Come: Deliverance with a controller stated that the lockpicking was ‘impossible’. Now, it is “much easier to hold the sweet spot while turning the lock” and players using the controller will find it easier to unlock Very Easy and Easy locks, the mouse difficulty, however, has not changed.
Even though the patch is later than many players wanted, like the Days Gone game, a lot of the improvements seem to be answering a lot of what players were desiring. Some quests have become harder, such as the combat system when Harry has gained more experience. But some things have become less buggy like sneaking past sleeping NPC’s. The full patch notes are listed below.
