The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Patch v1.11 Released

CD Projekt RED has just published patch v1.11 for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PC. The console versions of the patch are currently scheduled to follow very soon, though no hard dates or times have been given. The changelog for the patch is available at at this link, and from even just a quick read it's clear that the patch includes a significant amount of fixes for the both the main game and its DLCs, including the recently released expansion Hearts of Stone. It's not quite as big as v1.10, but then again, that was very much an anomaly.
