THEHUNTER: COTW - Patch 1.11



Hello Hunters,

We have another small patch for you that addresses issues after yesterday’s Patch 1.1.

As always, we thoroughly go through your feedback and try to work it in for the next update. This marks the fourth update in the 8 days since release.

For the next patch, we are working on a better solution for stalking in crouch mode without using a gamepad, better feedback regarding the noise you make in the HUD and of course crashes, performance improvements as well as usability. There is not yet a release date for the next patch, but we intend to keep the frequency similar to what you’ve seen so far.

Thank you again for the on-going dialogue and until the next update!

theHunter: Call of the Wild Team

Fixes:

  • Crashfix for bringing up the scoreboard in multiplayer (affects specific languages)
  • Items are now unlocked when you exceed the requirements. Please be sure to obtain experience points for your character / weapon level to update, so that the changes can take effect.
