EA’s recent action monster hunting game, Wild Hearts, didn’t exactly release in the best of states. Players have complained about a plethora of technical issues, a lack of QoL features, and general bugs. But they would be glad to know that some of them have been addressed, thanks to a patch released today.

A "Camera Distance" setting is finally here so players can now adjust the distance between the in-combat player character and camera. Via the Detailed Map, players can now dismantle Dragon Karakuri and all Karakuri placed by guests. Voice chat is now usable in loading screens, and a "Dye" tutorial has been added. The standard firing rate of the hand cannon is increased and the power of Claw Blade's Wingblade Spin Slash is reduced.

A small portion of the patch notes is mentioned below.

  • Added a setting to change the color of the speaker name displayed in subtitles.
  • Increased the reward for offering assistance by using a Hunter's Gate, as well as further increased the reward for assisting on story quests.
  • The Stamina gauge will now flash when you do not have enough Stamina to perform an action.
  • Icons for buffs obtained from skills or food will now appear for each individual buff, even if the icons are the same.
  • An icon for the nearest campsite will now appear on the compass at the top of the screen.
  • Adjusted the sorting order when sorting ingredients so that seasonings now are properly sorted together.
  • While in the Karakuri Stance, player inputs will now prioritize the creation of Karakuri.

  • The dye color will now be shown on the armor forging screen and the cladding production screen.
  • The Flying Vine Dragon Karakuri is now easier to place in Minato, even in close proximity to a NPC.

  • The Paddle Scoop Karakuri will now return to its base when full.
  • In specific cases when an area change is immediately triggered after defeating a Giant Kemono, broken off Kemono materials will automatically be added to the player's inventory.
  • It is now possible to offer assistance on all quests from the Hunter's Gate located in Minato.
  • Adjusted Hunter Vision to make it better at guiding players to a target Kemono.
