CD Project Red has recently confirmed in a financial result presentation that they are releasing a new 4K update for The Witcher 3 on the PS4 Pro and upcoming Xbox One X.
Excellent news, I still have to finish some of the DLCs content and now is the best time to do it in 4K. Yeahhh!!!!-
Good news for console gamers. It looks glorious in UHD resolution.
finnaly! held off playing the final expansion for this
I haven't played it yet. I hear it's great all the time but I've just been waiting for some well deserved time off so I can dive in for about 5 or 6 hrs first play through. I waited this long so I might as well wait for the 4K update on the X, hope it lives up to my *reasonable hype expectations.
I've only played about an hour of the game so i'm waiting for this before I get back into it.
I knew when they announced a xbox x update that the pro would get one too...it's only natural. It great news for all owners and future owner's of these updated consoles. The witcher is one of the heist quality rpg''s this generation
Good thing I didn't finish the last DLC. Looks like I'm just gonna wait for the patch.
@4Sh0w the Witcher has the best writing in gaming IMOO, from mature dialog to pacing, even minor characters and small side-stories are great.
I'm in the same boat as I still have both DLC expansions to go through. Hell come to thonk of it I'm on the last mission of the main quest. So I'll wait till the Pro update and then finish it and begin the new quests! I've put so many hours into this game and still have to finish it.
Give me supersampling and high/very high graphics setting and i will buy it. Already have it on PC But i really respect those guys and i want to give them as much support as possible
First I was like Whaaaat? Then I was like yeah they totally deserve it lol.
I'll buy it for PC as well when those Vega 56's get back in stock for $349. CDProjektRed deserves every penny, much like Digital Extremes.
i am so ready for this!
Any excuse for a second playthrough ;)
The game is so huge that it is very easy to forget some of the things you did on your first playthrough especially if you replay after a year and have the additional DLC.
Dlc is like another game.
Just bought the game. great news!!!
Hints: - Play on either "Blood and Broken Bones" or better yet "Death March". - Make sure to select "Gourmet" as your first attribute. - When you get the chance do the Witcher school quests. - Don't get put off at the low percentage of some of your potions and oils they can be made very much stronger. BTW. To really appreciate the game don't ever wimp out and reduce the difficulty.
Always Death March because after about 40% through it gets very easy.
Also explore the ? on the maps. In the first map there are a lot of places of power that are really handy to upgrade.
Agreed with all of the above, explore, explore explore before moving forward. Each side quest has the thought put into it like a main quest would.
Thinkining it'll be 1440p and probably checkerboard 4K or 1800p on the One X, hoping it gets HDR too!
I think you are probably close. Though, it would be awesome to have a 1080p/60fps option on the Pro and 1440p/60fps option on the X. I beat the game on the PS4, but never played the DLC. I think I am going to play the Hearts Of Stone DLC on the Pro and Blood & Wine on the X. Getting a little slice of greatness from both machines.
Same here I messed up and didn't get the Yen romance so for love I restarted lol but I, glad I did! Playing at it 1080p a bit underwhelming
CPU in any of these consoles is nowhere near enough for 60fps. I'd like it too but don't go expecting it. Even powerful PCs struggle getting 60fps in this game, it's intense.
Read the article earlier, it was updated and CDPR downplayed the few days part but the update is on the way.
Lol at the disagree http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
this update better be ground breaking because they sure enough took long enough to bring it out.
They could of not bothered. Be happy they’ve taken the time to update as it is and it’s an improvement (for free) regardless.
They do owe me a game worthy of my playstation 4 pro.
They don't owe you anything :-/
I will definitely jump into this game again on ps4 pro and probably complete it again
good news but 4k at medium settings? what's the point in that
stupid question of the day
Razzer--How is it stupid if your hardware can't run the game at more than 20-30 frames then why in God's name would you want to add a higher res to it ? Logic if i was only a console gamers the first thing i would worry about is my games being played at more than 30 frames because guess what this isn't the 2006
There are no specifics on settings and what’s the point of a free update? Well it’s free and it’ll update (improve) what you’ve currently got. Pretty self explanatory.
AWESOME! Finally it's time for me to return to The Witcher 3 on PS4 Pro.
Nice. Ready my Ps4 Pro and Game Of The Year Edition...
Ah nice I put this game on hold when I first heard about the 4k patch. But after a few weeks I really wanted to dive back in. But now the patch is only a week away so I can wait on that.
I did exactly the same thing. Was half way through and decided to wait
Noooooooooo! I wanted this so badly when I played it for the 2nd time all the way through. And they said they weren't gonna do it. Now,iI don't have time.
Just when I delete the game off my pro hard drive. Lol!
CD Projekt Red has since downplayed the "few days" proximity to me. "PS4 Pro and Xbox One X: both technical updates are coming," senior PR manager Radek Adam Grabowski told me. "More details about them, including the exact moment when they will be released, are something we are going to announce when the right time comes." From DigitalFoundry.
Ha, looks like CDPR is just like every other dev and can't stick to what they've previously said. http://indieobscura.com/art... "The Witcher 3 Won't Receive a PlayStation 4 Pro Upgrade CD Projekt Red will focus on new games instead of giving The Witcher 3 a PS4 Pro boost." http://www.usgamer.net/arti... "The Witcher 3 Will Not Have PS4 Pro Update There will be no additional PlayStation 4 Pro patch for The Witcher III: Wild Hunt." http://www.playstationlifes... "I’m afraid that we have no plans to release the PS4 Pro edition for The Witcher 3:Wild Hunt. Our team is currently working very hard on GWENT: The Witcher Card Game and Cyberpunk 2077. We want to be entirely focused on the development of these projects." Kept saying people give too much credit to CDPR. They purposely kept a patch that fixed a quest bug on the PS4 version of the game behind the Blood and Wine paywall, and they can't even maintain their own position on the Pro and XBoX.
Probably they were speaking there true intentions at the time. But becuase it's easier and better to do an enhanced version on Xbox one x they decided to do it for Xbox. This was announced since e3 on Xbox side. So they probably didn't wanna feel the wrath of angry ps fans so decided to do a update for pro to to ps fans don't feel left out. Don't be surprised if one x patch is much better than the pro.
You realize companies can change their minds right?
I understand that Cyberpunk 2077 obviously doesn't require as much attention as CDPR said it does.
I understand you have no clue how large companies work. A billion dollar company with 600 employees won't have everyone working on the same project even if they wanted to.
"won't have everyone working on the same project even if they wanted to." You assume they have only one project. And again, there direct quote is "We want to be entirely focused on the development of these projects." But I'm sure you know the business and their goals better than they do.
I called it! They said they had no "plans", but now they do. It is simple. But yeah, I had a lot of downvotes on disagreeing with no patch idea, but HAH!
I do remember when they said that. They did go back on their word, but in this case wouldn't that be a good thing? It means people can get a 4K experience on Pro and maybe smoother or higher framerates. I will take that over nothing at all.
Yes bro, make a mountain out of an ant pile.
"Thank you for your feedback and question. I’m afraid that we have no plans to release the PS4 Pro edition for The Witcher 3:Wild Hunt." http://www.playstationlifes... What a difference a year can make. If there was no Xb1x, this probably wouldn't be happening.
In other news, check out the W3 HD Reworked Mod for PC
Great news! I bought the game during Microsoft's last major sale and have yet to play it. Will save it for Beast Mode on the X. This gives me time to finish 2 up though...right on the money. Will be interesting to see what both platforms can produce with a game as demanding as this.
Chrisx said he was playing through part 2 on his PS3 a few months ago. Maybe he can help you out if you're stuck 😂
😆 That guy will say anything as long as it puts Sony and PS in a positive light. The definition of the term Fanboy...
Ps4 pro in a few days..YEAHYA!!!!!!
Looks like this is only happening becuase if the one x. PS4 pro might be a simple up res and checkerboard while one x patch maybe true enhancements. I hope they prove me wrong tho! Just when I was beginning to think I might be fine with just a pro and no need for a one x. I'm curious to see how this pans out. I want to see If there isn't much difference between pro and one x version or if the one x is significantly better. Depending how this goes I think it will be very indicative of how future 3rd party games will be and if one x is justified with its higher price!
Keep your 4k and give me 60fps. This game needs it bad.
Wow, it looked amazing before the remaster
PS4 Pro = 2160i vs Xbox One X = 2160p should be interesting ;)
Specifics not yet known, pure speculation.
While the game didint look bad...it have fail to impress me even in 4k on my pc,i wonder if the patch bring only 4k support or 4k asset to??If so i might give it another shoot.For now Deux Ex mankind look glorious in 4k!
If anything you might get assets on one x. Don't see pro getting it with limited assets. What platform did you play mankind on?
4k on your PC you say ? We need specs and additional proof a steam account because i call bull on your statement
lol....sli gtx 1070 at first...i sold them and get a 1080ti instead....was getting around 45-60 fps whit the sli...i didint try it with my 1080ti yet.I dont plan to anyway...exept if the update with 4k assets:)
jonivtec--- that's not proof either show me your specs from Geforce experience with a name that matches
Yessssssss! I have been waiting for this to finally finish the Witcher. Thanks Cdpr
