One December 14,2022, The Witcher 3’s free next-gen update will be made available on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. At Thursday night’s REDstream, CD Projekt Red gave gamers a sneak peak at all the new features and enhancements they can look forward to in the game, including a new Photo Mode, performance improvements and new content.

Enhancing the overall realism and quality of the graphics was one of the main goals of the free next-gen upgrade. Ray Tracing, enhanced Screen Space Reflections, enhanced foliage, enhanced textures and other aesthetic enhancements were used to accomplish this. Additionally, the game will now support DLSS 3 and FSR 2.1.

A different camera option that puts players closer to the action is perhaps one of the greatest adjustments the upcoming next-gen upgrade will make to the game. Players will now have the ability to dynamically conceal the minimap, which should make exploring a little bit more thrilling.

The Witcher fanbase will be happy to learn that the game will also offer a gift for fans of the Netflix show in the shape of new material, when many had anticipated the next-gen update to just bring performance and graphic improvements. Along with a new adventure based on the television series that has Geralt searching for blueprints for new equipment, the game also lets players choose alternate appearances for Dandelion and Nilfgaardian warriors.

The incorporation of some of the most well-liked modifications created by the community in the game is perhaps one of the best things CDPR has done with relation to this new version. What mods make it into the game will be fascinating to watch. The Photo Mode, which enables gamers to record beautiful scenery and bloody battles and pose to their heart’s delight, is another wonderful addition.

Additionally, cross-progression will be made available to players on all platforms in the game. This implies users may play the game and move their most recent save file between platforms. This basically allows you to pick up the game where you left off on a PC and continue playing it on a PS5 without missing a beat.

It would be fascinating to see whether the studio decides to add more in the form of new content as CDPR has indicated that this is merely a little taste of all the new features coming to the next-gen upgrade. Even if The Witcher 3 is already a game jam-packed with content, it’s good to see CDPR not resting on their laurels and taking use of this chance to make the game even more enticing. For individuals who already possess the game, the next-generation upgrade will be provided without charge.
