The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt 1.04 Patch Released for PC

Looks like yet another patch is now available for down on the PC and while this isn’t the “big” one that’s supposed to introduce 600+ updates / fixes, the released patch (1.04) does address several issues. More importantly among the fixes is the ability to alt+tab in-game has been fixed, as this has caused several crashing issues that I’ve experienced.

The 1.04 patch will be downloaded automatically on Steam and GoG Galaxy, if you have updating enabled that is.  You can also download the patch directly from GOG by going here. If you install it manually, you must already have the 1.03 patch also installed prior. You can also download that here.
