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

kevnb128d ago

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

Arnon128d ago (Edited 128d 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! ^ ^

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

81BX129d ago

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

Krysis129d ago (Edited 129d 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

Artemidorus129d ago

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

guyman129d ago (Edited 129d ago )

At least the 'inferior console ' has better games.

Artemidorus128d ago

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

DragonDDark128d ago (Edited 128d 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.

Condemnedman128d ago

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

zerocarnage128d 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..

CernaML128d 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.

Sitdown129d 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?

ProjectVulcan129d ago (Edited 129d 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.
