The Witcher 3 new-gen update 'fixes' infamous Yennefer bedroom joke

The Witcher 3 new-gen update 'fixes' infamous Yennefer bedroom joke

In The Witcher 3's new-gen update, Yennfer's inn room key is no longer a 'common item.'

It’s an exciting time for gaming. With The Game Awards just days away, the speculation over what will be announced is well and truly underway. After yesterday’s Star Wars Jedi: Survivor release date leak, it was confirmed that we’ll be getting a new gameplay trailer. This morning, word is that Horizon Forbidden West will be getting a DLC announcement.

Fans of The Witcher are looking beyond The Game Awards though. On 14 December, the long-awaited new-gen update for The Witcher 3 launches bringing with it visual and performance upgrades, new content based on the Netflix series, boosted frame rate and resolution, plus ray tracing. We now also know that the update is due to ‘fix’ that infamous Yennefer bedroom joke.

Take a look at the new-gen patch in action below.

You know the one I’m talking about. During the quest ‘Destination: Skellige,’ Yennefer hands you the key to her room at the inn which, in your inventory, is marked as a ‘common item.’ All it takes is a spark to light a fire. The internet soon started memeing the heck out of the wording. I’d love to think that I don’t need to explain why .. but I will. If the key is ‘common,’ it suggests that Yennefer hands it out pretty often. You get the implication.

It’s somewhat of an awkward joke, both because Geralt has his own fair share of dalliances plus Yennefer is really entitled to hand out her key whenever she likes, so to speak. To save us from having to discuss this though, the key is now labelled as a ‘relic’ in the new-gen update as reported by GameSpot. I’d love to think this has solved the issue but I can’t help but think that people will be making Yennefer jokes on the opposite end of the spectrum.

In other news, the update will also fix fall damage but rather annoyingly, it won’t include cross-platform trophy and achievement progression. You can transfer your save between consoles but you’ll have to start again in terms of trophies. They do say, you can’t have it all.
