The Witcher 2 was excellent, but the technically demanding nature of the game's bleeding-edge engine led to a few issues. CD Projekt Red have been paying attention to community feedback and tweaking the game ever since its release -- even going so far as to add the ability to change Geralt's haircut for those who preferred his long flowing locks from the original game to his all-new ponytail.
Version 1.3 of the game is to release shortly, and it fixes a number of issues. The game now properly supports 4:3, 5:4 and 16:10 aspect ratios rather than just 16:9. And the issue where nVidia's 3D Vision drivers caused severe performance degradation has been fixed, too, meaning players will no longer need to uninstall these drivers to get the best frame rate out of the game.
In terms of interface tweaks, the HUD can now be turned off for those who want to take screenshots without HUD elements getting in the way. Key binding options have also been added to be more friendly to left-handed gamers and those who want to customize their controls. The problem where game settings were reset to defaults after installing a patch has also been fixed.
The most significant addition, though, is the new quest -- the addition of one such quest apparently being CD Projekt Red's intention for each new patch. 1.3's new adventure, dubbed "A Sackful of Fluff," is a quest in Chapter 2 of the game. Players who visit a character named Elthon that lives near the quarry outside Vergen will be able to take on this adventure which, according to the developers, "will prove most rewarding to those who demonstrate patience."
No specific date for the patch yet, but the existence of a comprehensive changelog suggests it'll be pretty soon.
