An Update From the Team - Updated Feb 17

Hey hunters -We are very happy to see so many of you jumping in and enjoying the hunt this week! We have an update to share with you regarding some of the issues we’ve been tracking.
A patch will be released next week on all platforms that addresses several issues and contains the following changes:
 
  • A CPU threading issue has been fixed. We are seeing significantly improved performance on high end PC's.
  • AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX visual artefacts fixed. Also added the option to turn off reflections in the settings menu.
  • The default resolution when launching the game for the first time will now be 1080p. We discovered many users are running higher resolutions than the recommended spec can safely support. We are adjusting the recommended spec guidance online and will continue to optimize in this area. If you are running the game comfortably at higher resolutions, you can continue to do so and select alternate resolutions from the settings menu.
  • Additional stability and bug fixes
Additional issues tracked that will be fixed in a later patch:
  • A fix is being worked on for audio de-sync issues. For now, if you experience this, rebooting the game will often remedy the problem.
  • Rare PS5 crash when booting the game.
Your feedback during the trial period has been greatly appreciated and Omega Force will continue to optimize and address issues as rapidly as possible.
Thank you again. Stay safe & stay sharp, hunters!

*** Update ***


 

Hey Hunters!

 

More Hunters come to Azuma by the hour!

 

Still, some PC players are impacted by unforeseen performance and compatibility issues. The patch we spoke about yesterday is still on track for release next week and we hope will improve performance on impacted PC’s that should comfortably run WILD HEARTS.

 

We thank you all for your patience and while you wait for a permanent fix, we have confirmed reports that in some cases, switching your “output settings” in the in-game Audio settings from Stereo to 71.ch/5.1ch  can yield performance improvements for some.


This workaround doesn’t work in all cases and players already running recommended spec at over 60fps are unlikely to see an improvement but while we investigate and work on the patch, please try it yourself and see if it improves performance for you.

 

Your feedback during the trial period has been greatly appreciated and Omega Force will continue to optimize and address issues as rapidly as possible.
Thank you again. Stay safe & stay sharp, hunters!
