The Witcher 3 just got another surprise update you can download now

Another free download is up for grabs

Following on from the release of CD Projekt Red’s latest official modding kit for The Witcher 3, the team has released another free update that is available to download right now.

Last month saw CD Projekt Red surprise fans with REDkit modding tools which would allow The Witcher 3 modding community a lot more creative freedom and support.

Since then, mods for the 2015 RPG have dramatically increased in number with some being dedicated to adding new maps whilst others have focused more on graphical updates. With thousands of the free downloads available on Nexus Mods, it is no wonder The Witcher 3 is experiencing a resurgence.

Now, a few weeks on, CD Projekt Red has released its first patch for REDkit alongside a general hotfix for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

The 6 June hotfix for the game has focused on two areas: an issue where turning on HairWorks on DirectX 11 would crash the game and “adds some new capabilities for modding scripts: the script compiler now supports a number of annotations”.

As for REDkit’s first patch, there are a lot of improvements including the colour picker in the Environment Editor will now show colours properly and creating a new world and generating terrain will no longer fail when Ray Tracing is enabled.

There are also fixes to UI, overall stability and compatibility. Additionally, new tutorials have been added to the User Guide to help out its users even more.

These updates will automatically be downloaded next time you launch The Witcher 3 in both GOG and Steam at no extra cost. So if you are a budding modder and a PC user, you should check out these helpful tools from CD Projekt Red itself.

In related news, The Witcher 3 has a fully overhauled next-gen remaster releasing later this year. Exciting stuff, huh?
