CD Projekt Red have released Patch 1.05 for The Witcher 3 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, fixing several problems that have been left over since previous patches. You can have a look through the full patch notes below. Among them are fixes to removing skills using the Potion of Clearance, tweaks to the UI, and fixing the gate in the crypt during the Scavenger Hunt: Viper School Gear quest.
The last patch for The Witcher 3 was released at the start of this month and fixed some more of the major problems that players have been experiencing, as The Nerd Stash has previously reported. It was also reported that The Witcher 3 had reached 4 million sales in just over two weeks, according to CD Projekt Red.
Since The Witcher 3 has been released, fans – especially Xbox One players – have been complaining about serious issues with the game, with some fans saying that The Witcher 3 was practically unplayable. At the time, CD Projekt Red said it was taking the problems “very seriously” and were working tirelessly to fix all of the issues associated with the game. This resulted in the patches released since then, as well as a couple more that are expected to arrive over the next several weeks, although there seems to be only minor issues to be fixed at this point.
The patch notes for The Witcher 3’s Patch 1.05 are:
- Gold will no longer reset beyond 65535
- Fixes lack of interaction with Roche on Oxenfurt Bridge in the quest ‘Get Junior’
- Geralt’s clothes will no longer be wet after leaving the menu
- The gate in the crypt now works correctly during the quest ‘Scavenger Hunt: Viper School Gear’
- Fixes the endless loading screen when fighting the Ice Giant during the quest ‘Lord Undvik’
- Mutagen bonuses will now be saved properly

According to CD Projekt Red, the team is “working on another, pretty big update which will bring a large number of amendments to the game,” which is scheduled to be released soon.
