CD Projekt Red's next-gen update for The Witcher 3 is launching on December 14th
The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt is getting a "Next-Gen" update, enhancing the game for modern PCs, and current-gen consoles like PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S/. Gamers who already own the game on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade their copies of the game for free, giving gamers a great reason to replay the 2015 classic.
CD Projekt Red has confirmed that The Witcher 3's next-gen patch will be launching on December 14th, and the studio plans to host a live stream about the update next week to detail the update's changes.
Originally, The Witcher 3's next-gen update was being developed by Saber Interactive, with CD Projekt Red bringing the project in-house earlier this year. The update is expected to deliver graphical improvements to the game, and new content in the form of a Netflix The Witcher Free DLC.
Next week, gamers will see what The Witcher 3's next-gen version will look like. We expect to see improved lighting, shadows, textures, and models, as well as a new anti-aliasing solution. Perhaps we will even see ray tracing support and upscaling features like DLSS and FSR 2.2.
