The Xbox One X Runs The Witcher 3 At 60fps, If You Don’t Patch It

When The Witcher 3 launched for the original Xbox One back in 2015, it only ran at 900p (1600 x 900) resolution and had trouble maintaining a stable 30 frames per second. The same unpatched version of the game, running fresh from the disc, hits 60 frames per second more often than not on the Xbox One X.

Yeah that is! But I still really want the patch. Only got half way though this game. Can't wait to finish it on the X.

Same here. I really liked the game but there was soo much content I spent all my time doing the side quests and location searches until I burned out. Once it patches I'm excited to jump in again.

I'll take the visual fidelity over frame rates, I trust the X will provide a smooth fps

kevnb34d ago

60 fps is so much nice than 30 in this game, well pretty much any game really.

Arnon34d ago (Edited 34d ago )

60 FPS @ 1080p > 30 FPS @ 2160p

Frame rate should always be held to a higher mark than resolution, which is not to say that resolution should go out the window, but there should be a balance between the two, usually with a minimum frame rate of 60 FPS.

Hopefully the patch will bring both 4K and 60fps options so people can play how they desire. Really liking that games doing this on console. I like my multiplayer at 60fps and single/coop to be as beautiful as possible. In the case of Halo 5 you get both at the same time and its awesome.

I´ll go with the "60fps mode" first. 60fps on an AAA open world game like the Witcher 3 is a dream of smothness! ^ ^

trumpwonstopcrying34d ago

Lol 2 years later the game becomes playable

zerocarnage34d ago

That's stupid to say it was playable anyway, I never had a problem..

LastCenturyRob33d ago

Do you ever not troll or is this your life's ambition?

jeromeface33d ago

Been playable on pc all along... lol

Zeref34d ago

There has to be a patch where the game will prioritize framerate over resolution, seeing as it keeps 60 fps in most situations.

unpatched games are being improved to an extent. Doom '16 stays at 1080p, cleans up and maintains 60fps as well.. according to DF.

NoPeace_Walker34d ago

I need to get Doom. It is on sale at RedBox for like $5. Perfect time to pick up games that I never play because the X beastly power are transforming these games into new experiences

Woolly_34d ago (Edited 34d ago )

Yes you do.. The game's thrilling. I can't believe you haven't played it after all this time. Bethesda have the best SP FPS makers in their stable.

Now, you can play it at PC_Quality settings on the X. . Well as soon as it gets its patch. ^_^.

The game is in my Top 5 of the gen.

Even OG Xbox games are looking and playing better...The X is a great console!

WharenPeace34d ago

But the PS4 Pro ran it on 60fps a year ago.

81BX34d ago

Super dope. Enjoy your ps4 pro. I'll keep enjoying my scorpio

Dont enter Novigrad your xbox one x will drop frames to 40

81BX34d ago

Played witcher 3 on base xb1. Ran fine and, I did enjoy. Thanks lil fella 😉

Krysis34d ago (Edited 34d ago )

Uhhh no it did not, why would you say something so stupid. I can't believe people are agreeing with such a false statement just because you're saying it about PS4

Artemidorus34d ago

Does this make you feel better because you now own an inferior console?

guyman34d ago (Edited 34d ago )

At least the 'inferior console ' has better games.

Artemidorus34d ago

But it means you play more games on an inferior machine. So both have pros and cons

DragonDDark34d ago (Edited 34d ago )

You sound like PC master race dudes in every past gen.

I have a PC & I have consoles for exclusives(PS4/Switch). Awesome games & a decent PC that can play all XB1 Games at 1080p 60fps.(Sometimes lower)
No need for 4k BS for me.
I just need games to play.

Condemnedman34d ago

yes this is without a patch . was the pro patched Wharen?

zerocarnage34d ago

What do you want to collect a trophy for the ps4 pro, the X has only released and yet it will be able to achieve a better looking game in no time at all.

Compare the S to the pro and they're on par..

CernaML33d ago

"Compare the S to the pro and they're on par.."


Now THAT'S delusional.

1600 x 900 with Xbox One quality settings and it drops well below 50FPS when you go to Novigrad

My mind isn't blown. An old PC does much better.

Sitdown34d ago

But you do realize this isn't about the PC right? Likewise, you do care that nobody probably cares about your mind being blown right?

ProjectVulcan34d ago (Edited 34d ago )

This article is supposedly about how impressive 1600 x 900 with XB1 settings at (not really) 60FPS is on Xbox One X. "It's pretty impressive" the article says.

No it's not. I also provided a valid reason why it isn't.

My comment highlighted how I am totally not amazed. If the comments section isn't about airing your mind then we may as well remove it. You're free to reply to me, therefore clearly caring about my comment, or you're free to not reply. You chose to reply.

I'm quite happy if you don't care that I'm not amazed, as long as you also realise how completely not amazing it is then you will have learnt something. In the end that is a good thing.
