Patch 1.15 - Multiplayer Spotting is Now Live!



Hello Hunters,

First, we want to welcome all new hunters that picked up the game during the autumn sale. Thank you very much for giving the game a go, and welcome!

Today’s patch is mostly about maintenance and small game improvements. Here’s some highlights:

* Spotting animals in Multiplayer will now highlight the spotted animals for all players around the spotter. We hope this will make spotting more useful when playing with other hunters and are looking forward to your feedback.

* The checks for animals getting stuck, especially at cliffs like the crater in the Medved-Taiga, have been improved. They should not simply disappear any longer.

* We had some feedback from the community that the 12-gauge shotgun could give a little bit more “bang for your buck” (pun intended!), as such the 12-Gauge Buckshot’s damage has been increased per pellet and should pack a bigger punch now.

Additionally thanks to community reports the patch also features another round of fixes and improvements for missions - thank you very much for your consistent feedback and reporting!

As always, thank you very much for your feedback and let us know what you think about the latest changes. Scroll down for the full release notes.

Happy Hunting

theHunter: Call of the Wild Team
