Witcher 3 Console Resolution and Framerate revealed

 

 The guys over at GameStar.de have been able to have a preview of all 3 versions of the Witcher 3 and have been able to compare how each version of the game looked and played individually, as many of you guys can guess, the PC is the top platform in term s of graphical detail and minimum pop-in, but let's see how the console versions compare.

The PS4 is the leading console with a resolution of 1080p and a framerate of 30FPS, the Xbox One version on the other hand has the same framerate of 30FPS but a decreased resolution of 900p. The textures on the Xbox One version are also describes as being "washed out compared to the PS4, with the PS4 being described as "more blurred" than the PC at high settings. Beyond that there is also the fact that the PC version can be cranked up to higher setting than was showcased to GameStar.de, but those settings were yet to be optimised.

The console versions of the game are also said to have some noticeable "popping" on ground details like grass and and turf. The PC version of the game on High setting is described as having "twice" the visual range.

The Specs that gamestar.de will be playing on were a Intel Core i7-4790K on a ASRock Z97 motherboard with 8.0 GB of RAM a Nvidia GTX 980 with 4.0 GB VRAM and an SSD drive. This system was able to run very well on this system at "High" settings, thought the framerate and resolution was not given. The game was described to run like "liquid", or smooth, so we hope this means 60FPS and the resolution is assumed to be 1080p.

The Game will also have a "Ultra" Setting, which was still to be optumised, but it is expected to run well on the same system, at least according to CD Project Red. The Pc version is "anti-aliased, stronger in color sharper textured and with more shaders and gloss effects than on the consoles", so it is easy to say that the PC is clearly the graphically superior version, provided you have the power to run it.

The PC version of The Witcher 3 will also be able to import saves from the previous Witcher Games, but the console versions will not be able to do the same, instead they will have to recount their previous adventures to a barber during the prologue, to allow gamers to play their previous decisions taken into account. 

Below I will include some gameplay footage from Eurogamer Portugal, which shows almost 15 minutes of Witcher 3 Gameplay on a PC.

*reads can use previous saves, looks in folder to find recent save- Deleted*

Lucky me? Steam also says it hasn't stored any on the cloud. Maybe it is because I uninstalled the game long ago to save space on the ssd.. if redownload it will it all come back?? I can't remember deleting anything(i used a few mod).Quote
