1C Entertainment has released a new hotfix for King’s Bounty II that addresses bugs that may hinder you from progressing through various quests. Hotfix 3 also added a lot of quality-of-life improvements.

Those who were having problems with the quest, “In the Void,” do not have to worry anymore. The developers have fixed and improved the battle, including the ending portion of the quest.

In “The Ritual” quest, the issue where you couldn't get the Seal of Erasmus when Belinda appears has been fixed.

For improvements, there are two new additional quicksave slots. This is perfect when you want to do something drastic and want to protect your progress. You can then just load the previous state and try a more careful approach.

The taunt skill has been improved as well. Affected units will receive a debuff, and users who own them will lose control. The unit that received the debuff will then attack the one who taunted them.

Aside from that, there is a new option in the settings menu that allows you to hide your shield, weapon, and hats during dialogues. Furthermore, a special sound effect is added whenever you buy equipment from merchants.
