The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt trailer highlights new features coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has a new trailer focusing on the game’s PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions. The game was initially released in 2015 to huge critical acclaim. Many gamers consider it one of the best open-world games of the previous generation.
CD Projekt Red previously announced that The Witcher 3 would receive a free next-gen update for owners of the base game.
This version has been delayed several times, but the developer recently confirmed that it would finally be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on December 14. Now a new trailer has been released highlighting some of the critical features of the next-gen update.
The video shows various plot threads from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and its expansions. A glimpse follows this into the adventures of Geralt. Afterwards, it highlights the critical improvements in this version. He confirms that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will support 60 FPS mode and ray-tracing features. In addition, 4K textures and PS5 and Xbox Series X/S models.
The next-gen version will come with a photo mode and support for cloud saves. There will also be gameplay improvements, although no details are shared in the trailer. The video focuses on the story of Geralt and Ciri and the various characters they meet in the game.
The enhanced version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt looks beautiful, but a side-by-side comparison would probably better highlight the differences.
It seems that the game will come with two different game modes. Players can choose between 4K visuals and 60 FPS gameplay. The original suffered from extremely long load times on PS4 and Xbox One back in the day. So fans can expect an improvement in this area thanks to the SSDs present in PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
