Nintendo has released Zelda: Breath of the Wild update 1.1.2 for the Switch and Wii U. Details for the patch are vague, as Nintendo only stated that they made adjustments for a more pleasing gameplay experience. It’s a bit frustrating seeing this statement for a patch, though most fans think the company’s politeness is quite funny.
Fans can see the vague “more pleasant gaming experience” update details in Nintendo’s website. Thankfully, more details for the update were witnessed after a thorough playthrough and some fan reactions. “Pleasing shown ” seems to be a fitting word for the update, as the game is a much smoother experience now.
Rupees, Arrows and Frame Rate
Gamers in Reddit have been observing the changes made via the Zelda: Breath of the Wild update 1.1.2. The infamous arrow farming exploit has been fixed, while the rupee exploit still works for players that need currency. Farming items to infinitum has always been a popular method in open-world games, so it’s good seeing this stay.
Sadly, frame rate issues are still around in certain areas, particularly at the Lost Woods, so that’s a shame. Players also point out that fights with Moblins can also lead to a few frame drops here and there, but it’s nothing too major. Overall, the game still has a few issues here and there, but it’s still a fantastic experience.
More to Come
The Zelda: Breath of the Wild update 1.1.2 has made the game better than it originally was even though the update was basically for general fixes. Many already considered the title a GOTY contender, so the fact that it’s even better now is really good to hear. There’s so much to do in Breath of the Wild, so fans will appreciate the update for letting them keep a few exploits here and there.
Unfortunately, the update does not add support for the upcoming Expansion Pass, which gives the player more dungeons to explore and bosses to fight. No release date for the DLC has been announced just yet, so fans will have to be patient for the extra content of the game. Expect it to be good though, just like the rest of the game.
