Wild Hearts from Koei Tecmo and EA recently released on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC platforms. Since launch, it has received a few updates to address issues in the next generation hunting game. Today, the developers have released the Wild Hearts April update. This is the Wild Hearts version 1.2.0 update bringing in Murakumo, Spinning Top Karakuri, Limit Break System, and more. There will also be a second update arriving later in the month bringing a new quest type. I’m interested to see what Koei Tecmo brings to the game through this year, because it is pretty great now barring the PC version still not being as good as it should be. This update is a 20GB download on Xbox Series X and is version 1.5.15.5 on the console.Watch the update trailer below:
