Witcher 3's next-gen update causing havoc for PC players!

Good news for Witcher fans, the latest update for The Witcher 3 is now available. However, PC players are reporting some issues with the update, including significant frame rate drops and strange texture and model rendering. Don't worry though, the team at CD Projekt Red is on it and is "actively investigating" all reports.

While some users have had success with fixes like removing mods and disabling ray tracing, others are struggling to even load their save files. But fear not, if all else fails you can always revert to the old build of The Witcher 3 and enjoy Geralt's adventure without the next-gen upgrades.

Of course, this isn't the first time CD Projekt Red has experienced launch woes. The studio's Cyberpunk 2077 launch on PlayStation 4 was a bit of a mess, leading to the game being pulled from the platform. But the team has learned from their mistakes and is working hard to ensure a smooth gaming experience for Witcher fans.

In the meantime, players are coming together to troubleshoot and find solutions to the issues they're experiencing. The Witcher subreddit has a mega thread dedicated to troubleshooting the update, with users sharing their own experiences and solutions. Some common suggestions include launching the game in DirectX 11 and double-checking for GPU driver updates.

It's worth noting that consoles seem to be faring better than the PC version. IGN had the chance to go hands-on with the next-gen update on consoles, and reported a smooth and impressive gaming experience. So for those who are struggling with the PC update, it might be worth considering switching to console for the time being.

Overall, it's clear that CD Projekt Red is committed to providing the best gaming experience possible for Witcher fans. The team is working hard to investigate and address the issues that have surfaced with the PC update, and we can expect to see a patch in the near future. In the meantime, players can continue to enjoy the game on consoles or revert to the old build on PC.

So grab your controllers and get ready to slay some monsters, just be prepared for some potential hiccups along the way. And remember, if all else fails you can always revert to the old version until CD Projekt Red releases a patch.

Happy gaming!
