Hello Hunters,

Here is another update from our side as we address the issues that you mention and report.

Once more we want to say thank you for your support, reporting these issues to us and of course for playing theHunter: Call of the Wild. It’s great to see the wonderful screenshots, videos and achievements from the community and we are working on solutions to improve the game and performance for our players.

Next to the smaller updates from today and yesterday, there is a bigger patch on its way. We can’t give you a final release date yet as testing is still in progress but we plan to release it very soon.

Today’s update includes:

  • Fix for “Invite to game” feature on Steam that would ultimately lead to a crash
  • Crash fix for hovering over specific icons in the map
  • Crash fix for ragdoll synchronization for spawned animals
  • Disabled joining friends in multiplayer games when the game is not running
  • Miscellaneous crash fixes

Additionally, there is a partial fix for joining friends in multiplayer. As long as the game is running, you will be able to join a friend’s game via the Steam functionality. Please make sure your friends have the game running when sending invites to play via Steam.

If you don’t have the game running and join a game after the update, you will only start the game.

We are also working together with AMD to investigate and fix any hardware related issues that were reported by our players.

And finally, there are work-around solutions to some problems until we can fix them for good:


You can manually adjust your keybindings outside of the game by doing the following:

  • Disable cloud saving on Steam (Properties -> Updates -> Untick Steam Cloud Synchronization)
  • Go to Documents\Avalanche Studios\theHunter Call of the Wild\Saves open your save folder
  • Open “keymap.json” with a text editor of your choice (e.g. Notepad)
  • Manually adjust keybindings
  • Save file and start the game (keeping cloud save disabled until you have started it once)

Return to Game from Settings menu

  • Hovering over any of the main menu icons on the left side of the screen and then pressing ESC will return you to the game.

Thanks again and happy hunting!
