The Witcher 3 next-gen

CD Projekt RED has revealed that there will be a free The Witcher 3 next-gen update for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. 

Announced via a press release, the upcoming The Witcher 3 next-gen upgrade will bring “a range of visual and technical improvements” for those who pick up the fancy new consoles this November.

The upgrades included in The Witcher 3’s next-gen upgrade aren’t fully explained here, but the developer has revealed that there will be “ray tracing and faster loading times — across the base game, both expansions, and all extra content.” Very fancy!

Those who currently own the game on either console platform will be able to get the next-gen enhancements for free, but there will also be a standalone purchase available for those who don’t already own the game.

All upgrades found in The Witcher 3 next-gen upgrade will also be coming to PC.
