Hotfix 1.05 for Call of the Wild: The Angler recently made its way into the live servers, and it brought some gameplay changes and graphics improvements.

Gameplay Changes

In this hotfix, the developers improved the fishing mechanics, starting with faster reeling speeds. Not only that, the lines are also durable, so they won’t break as easily as before.

Graphics Improvements

To make things more soothing, the developers have calmed the waters so it now ripples and flows more naturally. This should improve players' experience, especially those who suffer from seasickness.
