A few days ago, Wild Hearts received a ton of new content including a new Kemono subspecies. Many players thought that would be all for this month, but they thought wrong. The developer has more planned for March, with a small patch going live a few hours ago that brought balancing changes, performance improvements, and bug fixes.

Players should see CPU performance improvements all across the board, but it will be more noticeable for AMD processors. For other changes, the Giant Kemono won’t continuously move in a single direction during online co-op anymore, and a confirmation message when starting an online co-op match has been added. You can read the highlights of the update below.
