The Witcher 3 Next-Gen Features Explained

CD Projekt Red has been hard at work, but the studio hasn’t forgotten the game that made it famous: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. CD Projekt Red has announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be available for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox One Series X upgrades on December 14 and has released a new trailer showcasing these additions.

This is, of course, far from the only project currently in development. CD Projekt Red is hard at work on a new original IP, a new instalment in the Witcher Saga, a remake of the original The Witcher, and a proper sequel to their critically acclaimed 2017 game, Cyberpunk 2077. There is a lot of upcoming CDPR content, but The Witcher 3 is obviously more important.

CDPR Global Community Director Marcin Momot detailed some upcoming features for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt shortly after the next-gen trailer was released. First, everyone, regardless of which version of The Witcher 3 they own, will receive this update. All editions, including the standard and complete ones, as well as the Game of the Year Edition, are affected. In case you were under the impression that you had to buy a new copy of the game in order to unlock all of the achievements, let me disabuse you of that notion. New camera options for Exploration, Combat, and Riding will also be included, along with Photo Mode, Cross-Save, subtitle options, and more.

As an added bonus, it will have a new ULTRA+ setting on PC, as well as Performance and Ray Tracing Modes for game consoles. To be more specific, the Performance mode will prioritise a 60 FPS, while the Quality mode will emphasise visuals and add Ray Tracing features at a 30 FPS. Momot adds that the game’s patch notes will arrive closer to release, and that a physical release of this updated version of The Witcher 3 will follow.

One thing fans should keep in mind is that these next-gen upgrades primarily serve to enhance previously released content by including key new features. This update does not introduce any new features or content. For instance, when asked if new Gwent Cards would be added to The Witcher 3, Momot said there wouldn’t be any because the minigame is fine the way it is. Likewise, it was made clear that the premium content for The Witcher 3 would not be made available for free. In any case, this sounds like a substantial upgrade, and one that is unquestionably a positive development.
