The Witcher 3 is on the PC version of their fantasy RPG The Witcher. The first patch was released on December 19th and caused a lot of problems.
This hotfix weighs approximately 2 g and was intended to give the game more stability and fix the issue in the photo mode. However, it was unknown to some users that the patch broke the game. It appears on the Steam forums complaining the game isn’t turning on or starts to crash much more often. Many complained about a lack of more important fixes, though this complaint is not very relevant its just a hotfix to fix some small problem.
We’ll probably have to wait for the third patch, but some of the victims have been helped by a simple scan of the crypt in Steam.
