Despite being Game of the Year, Witcher 3 did have some minor issues. Among them, some long load times. PC users got a fix for this two weeks ago, but console users have had to wait until today.
The 1.31 patch for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 fixes:
- long loading times in dialogues in the vicinity of Hierarch Square.
- infinite loading screen occurring during the "Pyres of Novigrad" quest when following the thief.
That's it. Not much meat there as with 1.30, but the issue was obviously enough for CD Projekt Red to address it now. And if you hate long loading times, you should be happy.
