It's looking great!

CD Projekt RED has finally lifted the lid on its much-awaited “next-gen” update to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.

The update, which is totally free to existing owners of the game, is coming on December 14th and brings a host of new visual features to the game.

On the PC side, players are getting a new Ultra+ detail setting, ray-tracing features, FSR/DLSS, a new SSR solution, dynamic resolution scaling and more. On PS5 and Xbox Series X the ray-tracing, ambient occlusion, SSR, FSR and dynamic resolution features carry across with a choice of two modes – a ray-traced Quality mode in 30fps and a 60fps Performance mode. PS5 players will also benefit from haptic feedback and adaptive trigger support.
