Call of the Wild: The Angler recently received a new hotfix that brought improvements, new water refinements, and bug fixes.

Water Refinements

Developers improved the screen space reflections, a technique used to calculate reflections. The improvements aim to reduce distant noises and artifacts on water surfaces.

Game Improvements 

In this hotfix, developers addressed a few issues linked to game crashes. One such was related to vehicles, wherein players entering a vehicle as soon as it spawned caused them to get stuck under the map or crash the game. Thankfully, these issues are fixed in the current patch.
