'The Witcher 3' Gets Patch To Fix Funny Noblewoman Stalker Bug
Some players recently reported an extremely funny bug in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
It seems that, in some cases, a noblewoman dressed in red follows Geralt throughout the game. As a matter of fact, she doesn't just follow him, she stalks him, even running after him when he runs into battle or streaks after him as he rides across the world on his horse.
Unfortunately, now that everyone's had their fun with the bug, CD Projekt Red recently reported that an update has fixed it. The patch notes for the update reads: "fixes issue whereby a noblewoman in red would sometimes follow Geralt everywhere he goes."
Well, that's no longer any fun. However, several players recorded gameplay showing the woman following Geralt, and it's hilarious and creepy at the same time.
The patch also fixed a few other humorous problems with the game, including a bug where body parts would remain suspended in the air after enemies exploded. There were also some problems with players being able to knock down horses and Geralt being able to use Aard on a beehive to attack a friendly blacksmith. The patch, though, fixes these problems.
Other more serious game glitches also get a fix, including those that create infinite loading screens after leaving portals, alchemy tables being blocked, quests that didn't progress properly and a myriad of other bugs.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the final tale in the franchise about Geralt of Rivia. In the game, Geralt must track down his student Ciri, and protect her from the Wild Hunt, who would use them for their own gain. The final piece of DLC came out this year, Blood and Wine.
In Blood and Wine, Geralt travels to the colorful land of Toussaint, where he must discover the secret behind a beast that threatens that world. The DLC also added some new features to The Witcher 3 gameplay.
"We have Mutations that greatly enhance the New Game + mode and allow you to create even more custom builds of Geralt, we've added armour dyeing, we've even included a special home away from home for Geralt, his very own vineyard — Corvo Bianco," Karolina Stachyra, Senior Writer at CD Projekt Red, said.
The Witcher 3 also introduced an in-game card game called Gwent that became so popular with players that CD Projekt Red decided to devote a standalone game to it.
