"CD Projekt Red is listening to complaints about the game's graphical downgrade."
So is this patch for PC only?
Seems like it since there is no mention of the consoles in the article. I guess the console patches just focus on stability and other issues.
They need to take the PS4 and Xbox One tags out of the headline then. I'll be happy if they just get the game running smooth on consoles.
Underwhelming game in many ways so far. Doesn't deserve a 92 meta. Seem like a 89 so far.
@mikes Would you please break down just why those 3 points shift your opinion of the title, and how? What justifies three whole points less by comparison? I ask this because I found that statement incredibly dumb.
89 isn't exactly a score too be considered underwhelming lol!
The consoles already received a downgrade in the first patch so they could handle the graphics. No way they will increase the graphics as that would hurt performance. This is most likely PC only.
"Underwhelming game in many ways so far" then you dont have to waste your time with it. Lucky the game is a masterpiece. You can always go play COD or assassin's creed if you really want to.
Pretty sure the 89 meta was a troll statement not to be considered serious
Funny how you all fell prey to mikeslemonade troll. Cmon people, hes noting a 3 point difference. Yet 42 people dissagree. Welcome to this edition of One Bubble Rants.
In the actual interview they say the patch has been sent for certification...PC patches don't go to cert therefore safe to assume a version is also coming to consoles.
Video of the changes in the patch: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Am I missing something here, since I've watched the video briefly and it is just game play video of the game and isn't about the upcoming patch?
CD Project didn't downgrade the console versions for the fun of it, they downgraded it because that's the best they can offer on that hardware. As for PC, there probably adding in more graphic options for those with higher Cards etc.
Sir you are on drugs.
Good, people deserved what was promised on the graphic area. Though props to them for making a fantastic game though.
They should work at getting it as close to the visuals they were essentially shopping as the PC version. Glad to hear this though. CD Projekt is good people. I don't like holding negativity towards them.
what are peoples issues on ps4? ive played about 20 hours and havent had any problems.. (other than my own gripes, like geralts free movement, interaction with loot/horse)
Optimize the game and if possible some texture upgrade for consoles. If not possible, I'd be happy enough just to say its a bug free experience in the end.
More console bollocks again. PC patches don't need certification!!! Just release it now. But no, can't have the consoles looking even worse now can we.
Downgrade or not, I'm going to say in terms of consoles that the witcher 3 is the best looking open world game ever made. I got it on ps4 and it surpasses infamous second son and ac unity, huge respect to these developers.
I'm always astonished at how many people care so deeply for such minor aesthetic differences.
This is a site that bitches the difference between 900p and 1080p. I can call out the fact that they pulled entire graphical settings from the PC version itself.
