The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – The 1.07 patch drops the framerate!? [VIDEO]

The huge sized (7 gigabytes) patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt sadly has given us something that we didn’t expect to pop up, and that is the loss of framerate, as it drops under thirty frames per second. According to Eurogamer and their tests, you might lose as many as 8 fps at certain points, which on consoles mean an over 25 percent framerate loss…

What makes the situation even more frightening is the Xbox One’s almost unharmed framerate after the patch: while the PlayStation 4 lags even during cutscenes (!!!), Redmond’s machine seems to be unaffected by this, despite Sony having a stronger hardware than Microsoft…

DigitalFoundry has made a comparison video about the framerate for both consoles after installing the 1.07 patch. It’s sad to see this happen, we hope that CD Projekt RED will do something about it – to be fair, both sides should be treated as even… But, we will have to wait and see what the Polish team does.
