Earlier in November, CD Projekt RED confirmed that The Witcher 3 update for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC will be released for free on December 14. Now the developer has shown what improvements players can expect.

In a brand new trailer – which you can see at the top of the article – CD Projekt promises, among other things, 4K resolution for both figures and other models. A separate mode with 60 frames per second is coming to console, while on PC there will be ray tracing functions and DLSS support.
Alongside the visual upgrades, the update offers a number of adjustment options to the gaming experience and user interface. A new camera angle will be added, the map will have more filtering options and in battle it will be easier to use Geralt’s various characteristics. Cross-platform gaming is now possible, on PC, PlayStation and Xbox.
The package also includes brand new content inspired by The Witcher series on Netflix. This includes new armor and weapons, and a separate mission that allows you to unlock the innovations.
The game update otherwise deals a blow to accessibility. Here you can change the size of subtitles and pause the game during film sequences. CD Projekt has also promised that some of these functions will also come to the versions on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, but exactly how this will be is currently unclear.
At the moment, CD Projekt RED is working on several The Witcher projects: One of the projects is a “remake” of the first game in the series. In addition, the company has begun work on a new trilogy.
