King’s Bounty II has received its first-ever hotfix and it adds a lot of improvements, including the increased movement speed of the main characters on foot and on horseback, among others.

The launched game is a massive improvement compared to the original, which is almost 31 years in the making. That said, the game’s first hotfix adds several quality-of-life improvements.

For instance, you may have noticed that you have to dismount from your horse if you want to interact with merchants, tablets, chests, altars, and others. Although it is not a big deal, it can be a bit annoying to dismount just to interact with certain game elements.

Fortunately, the hotfix now allows you to interact with these without dismounting from your horse, which should save you time when progressing through the story. In addition, overall movement speed is increased - both when traversing by foot or on horseback.

There was also this issue where you are unable to apply any spell, buff, or debuff of third grade in some places. This can be problematic, but the good thing is that the developers have finally fixed this issue.
