Developer 1C Entertainment has released the second hotfix for King’s Bounty II. In this update, a new setting has been added to speed up the course of the battle. This is a welcome addition to the game, especially for those who only have a few hours to play.

Another notable change is that Aivar now has a new rewards system, with more resources and items to be given to you just by progressing through the campaign.

In terms of the user interface, those who want to learn more about their current quests will be happy to know that the developers have improved the text in the Journal to make them more readable. 

If it annoys you that some interactive objects may impede your vision at times, there is now an option to disable the highlighting of these objects. Of course, this can be turned on at any time.

This hotfix is currently available on PC and Xbox One. So, those who are playing on PS4 or Nintendo Switch will have to wait a bit longer. That said, some new improvements have been added exclusively to the PC version.

For instance, quest entries in your journal can now be tracked by double-clicking on them. Aside from that, the devs added the option to allow purchasing of new units by just double-clicking as well.
