Wild Hearts March 27 Update Released With Patch Notes

A new Wild Hearts update is available as of today via PC, PS5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X. Alongside the update, developer Omega Force and publisher EA have provided the patch notes for the update, which in turn has revealed and detailed every change, improvement, and addition made by the update. 

While we have the patch notes for the update -- which can be checked out below -- we don't have any information about the various file sizes from platform to platform. In other words, the only thing we can offer is insight. There's no new content and the patch notes aren't particularly long, so the file size should be on the smaller side.
