theHunter: Call of the Wild March 28 Patch Fixes Bugs Introduced in Showcase Update

theHunter: Call of the Wild Update 1.71 Expansive Worlds

theHunter: Call of the Wild players have been enjoying all the new content introduced in the Showcase update, which went live two weeks ago. The update added a free Cabin Trophy and some highly demanded features. However, it seems like not everything went as smoothly as the developer hoped.

Some players have encountered stability issues along with the in-game DLC Store not working as intended. A hotfix for the game went live a few hours ago that addressed these same issues. The DLC store should now work properly while some crashing issues have been fixed. The “Hide POI Icons'' option now successfully hides Points of Interests icons.

You can read the complete changelog below.

  • Addressed a rare issue that could cause the game to crash after switching loadouts, and further prevent it from launching before reaching the main menu.
  • Developer’s Notes: The crash was related to specific files in the player’s save game, and removing them (or the entirety of the save data) would allow the game to launch again. The fix rectifies the underlying issue so that save data will be usable again.
  • Fast traveling with the Hunting Dog in multiplayer occasionally caused the game to crash, but we sniffed out the problem and removed it.
  • In rare circumstances pressing “Continue” in the main menu or changing Reserves will no longer lead to the game crashing.
  • We fixed a crash that could happen to a very small number of players when accessing the Hunt Club menu.
  • Points of Interest icons will now be correctly hidden after using “Hide POI Icons” option.
  • The game will no longer create a new save file on PC if a player’s save data has somehow disappeared. It will now try to restore the data from backups instead of creating a brand-new file.
  • The in-game DLC Store will now work correctly.
