Wild Hearts is a mythical hunting game set in Azuma, a fictitious version of ancient Japan, in which players face off against Kemono, the giant beasts. Though Wild Hearts is set to be released on February 16, 2023, it is available to EA Play and Game Pass subscribers (PC and Ultimate on consoles) on early access.
Wild Hearts was expected to live up to the standards of Monster Hunter in the Capcom franchise, but the players’ experience was substandard, and many complaints surfaced in the Omega Force subreddit. PC gamers, in particular, have complained about the game’s poor optimization. Furthermore, even systems that meet or exceed recommended system requirements appear to have issues with consistent frame rates, regardless of resolution.
The good news is that the complaints of the gaming communities have been heard and as of now, Omega Force is currently working on fixing the PC version of Wild Hearts.
According to a post on the subreddit of Wild Hearts, a new patch is set to release next week, addressing the CPU bottleneck issues. The game’s developer, wolf_hands confirmed via Reddit post that the patch would address all issues and improve performance on mid-to-high-end CPUs.
Furthermore, he also confirmed that the developers are planning to add NVIDIA DLSS and AMD FSR support. This step can and will surely improve the performance of the vast majority of configurations.
The best part is that Omega Force is also working to improve and optimize console versions such as the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X and S. Having said that, game developers have not confirmed any patch for the console versions.
Nonetheless, it’s reassuring to hear that Omega Force is improving Wild Hearts across all platforms, be it PC or console. Hopefully, the game’s experience will be exhilarating with the new patch.
