Dark fantasy RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has a bug problem, and not the kind a witcher silver sword can handle. CD Projekt RED has acknowledged a nasty little problem has snuck in with the 1.04 patch.

The problem is with earning experience from any quest that's marked 6 levels (or lower) beneath you. All other quests should be okay though. The developer has "found the issue" and are "especially sorry".

CD Projekt RED has just updated The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with two more free DLCs as part of their 'rewarding the player' crusade. The first new addition is a new quest looking for some missing miners.

The next is an "entirely new look" for sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg, who Geralt happens to be hot on the trail of at the beginning of the RPG. Four DLCs have been released for free so far.

Yet another PC patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from developer CD Projekt RED. It's ruthlessly hunting down those troublesome glitches and bugs, but also adds a little extra like support for 1280 x 720 screen size.

There's also a new button to 'Unlock Bindings' in the options menu for full customisation of keys. Presets for high and ultra settings have been improved, and Nvidia Hairworks has had another tune-up.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's 1.03 patch is available now on Steam and GOG.com, and brings a number of changes including new graphics options and general stability and performance improvements.

It's the first step towards smoothing out the game's rough edges, and perhaps adding in a little bit of extra visual flair - CD Projekt has admitted that the game's graphics were tuned down a bit since its impressive VGX demo.

The Witcher 3 is a very good-looking game, but it doesn't quite hold up to the jaw-dropping standards of its initial promotional trailer, first shown off at the VGX game awards show in 2013. While it doesn't seem to have angered players as much as the Watch Dogs controversy, a section of the fanbase has been fairly vocal about what's becoming a frustratingly common issue in the games industry - glossy, breathtaking promo trailers that wildly over-promise the visual capabilities of a game's engine.
