The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt next-gen update includes fan-made mods as official features
CD Projekt Red shows its dedication to players with free next-gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
CD Projekt Red is back and better than ever with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's free next-gen update! After facing backlash from players following the launch of Cyberpunk 2077, the developer is making a strong effort to rebuild trust by going above and beyond to improve The Witcher 3.
The update includes new armour sets based on beloved book locations, snippets of new lore, a brand new mission, and even a new Gwent card. But that's not all - CD Projekt Red has made significant changes to the game's combat system, making it more intense and dynamic than ever before.
Unfortunately, not all players have been able to enjoy the benefits of The Witcher 3's next-gen update. Some PC players have reported significant issues with the update, including frequent crashing, performance problems, and missing features. CD Projekt Red has acknowledged the problems and is working on a fix, but many players are frustrated by the lack of a smooth and stable update. It remains to be seen whether the developer will be able to address the problems and provide a satisfactory experience for PC players.
For fans returning to The Witcher 3, the most noticeable change will be the new close-quarters camera angle, which thrusts players right into the heart of the action. The sprint feature, now attached to L3, adds a whole new level of depth to combat, and the quick-casting sign system keeps players engaged at all times. And with 60 frames per second gameplay and haptic feedback on PS5, every battle feels like a scripted cutscene.
But the real cherry on top is the inclusion of fan-made mods as official features in the update. This shows that CD Projekt Red is listening to its community and taking their feedback to heart. The update includes improvements to the world map, balance updates, and even some texture upgrades created by the community.
And the best part? The next-gen update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available for free to those who already own the game, and can be downloaded on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles.
But that's not all - CD Projekt Red has big plans for the future of The Witcher series. Earlier this year, the developer announced that at least five sequels and spin-offs are in development. With the level of effort and attention put into The Witcher 3's next-gen update, fans of the series have nothing to worry about.
So why wait? Get your hands on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's free next-gen update and experience the game like never before!
