A large patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was released today, causing both head scratching and a wee bit of excitement.

Folks with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt installed were informed patch 1.32 was ready for download, and due to the size, many were wonder what it included.

Players have reported patch 1.32 ranges from 500MB to 616MB depending.

Turns out, there’s no reason to get super excited, unless you are a Chinese speaker.

According to CD Projekt’s Lukasz Babiel, development team added support for Simplified Chinese to the game today.

“We had to add Simplified Chinese strings file, update the executable and one of patch.bundle files for that,” he said. “If you had mods installed it may happen that this update resulted in game not starting.

“It’s due to the fact that if Steam sees an update, it compares the files you have with the files on servers and overrides them if there’s a difference. So your mod scripts could be overridden.

“If you install your mods once more the game should work, as we didn’t change scripts and their relation to code.”

So there you have it. No new content or fixes and the like. Just new language support. Carry on.
