CDPR has no plan right now to implement HDR support on PC. PS4 will get HDR support after new year's.
Well damn. Looks like Xbox One X is the best place to play Witcher 3. Big win for them. HDR in that game is huge. Such a shame they are leaving out PC. I feel betrayed to be honest. Bought the game and all DLC on PC. I don't get this decision.
HDR on PC still isn't great at all so I don't blame them.
HDR is fine on PC, it is just Windows 10 makes it a pain to activate properly. But once it is working it is awesome.
"HDR on PC still isn't great at all so I don't blame them." love how constructive and scientific you sound. HDR is perfectly fine on PC if your system is up to date.
Not even close. The PC is still the best place to play Witcher 3. Remember, the One X is not running on Ultra settings, and there is no hairworks, etc. I looked at them almost side by side, have both the X and a PC. But I am with you, not sure why PC is not getting HDR.
PC monitors that support HDR isn't wide spread enough.
Nobody on PC uses Hairworks. Its a gimmick that eats up performance.
tvs that support HDR properly arent widespread either, I dont even know anybody who has one. And no, an 8 bit panel with HDR is not supporting HDR properly.
The HDR does look amazing though.. Personally I will take the HDR over Hair Works and the other PP effects by a large margin. The newest LG TV's especailly really shine with HDR enabled, they were designed to be in this mode to look their best. As for proper HDR support. All HDR support is proper but there are many 10 bit displays out today. But even an 8bit display is still offers way more dynamic ranges.
PlayableGamez, I always use hairworks on everything at maximum with 60fps. Also you can download a mod that increases Geralt's hairworks LOD by an insane amount and I still 60fps. Hairworks looks amazing on Fiends too. Far from a gimmick.
You don't need an pc monitor with hdr, you can just play on the same hdr tv you would use with console and there is absolutely ZERO HDR issues on pc, everything works just fine, if it something its devs fault.
Because PC has the best textures, best lighting, you can play at higher resolution so you can see the difference and PC has the best over all ultra realistic graphics. It doesn't need that HDR shit. Anyone that's a PC gamer would understand. P.S. I would love to see the Xbone X do 8 or 16k.
PC version is still way ahead of the X version. Better settings across the board, uncapped framerates and mod support blow the X out of the water.
The best place to play ? Lol the console can't even run the game at maxed settings and let's all forget the mods on PC that pushes the game that no console can ever dream of running
Don't worry. They didn't plan on improving Witcher 3 for Pro or One X either, but they did.
Nope Xbox doesn't have 4K60, 144hz, mod support, highest textures and assets, Gsync/freesync, highest quality shadows, lighting, AO, anti aliasing and Hairworks, highest draw distance, and overall clarity that the PC has. Also Ansel support on PC is very nice exclusive feature.
Well that is a shame for PC fans, glad to see Pro getting HDR and I can't wait to play this at 60fps on X! Blood and Wine is waiting for me to finish this amazing game!
it's not anywhere close to a locked 60fps if you've watched some of the videos. Best way to play would be the 4K mode with pretty much a locked 30 fps.
What? we must have watched different videos, I know it's not locked but it floats around 55-60fps 99% of the time, drops to 40's in Novigrad as expected. Both options are great!
Witcher 3 is beautiful on Xbox One X. I just love this game, and this particular console. Wasn't a fan of the original Xbox One or the S, but this is one great platform.
Since I started with my online business, I earn $35 every 15 minutes. It sounds unbelievable but you won’t forgive yourself if you don't check it out. Learn more about it here>> http://4u.fyi/4k9
Man that just made the one x version stand out even more on console.
Seems like a strange omission. A lot of PCs are hooked up to (HDR) TVs these days so I thought, considering their support for PC as a platform they’d include it. Certainly not a make or break feature, I’d still opt to play it on (a decent) PC than anything else but would of been a welcome addition nonetheless.
My guess is because PC monitors are nowhere near to having HDR support.
that doesnt make any sense, barely anybody has a tv that supports hdr either. And of those that do many are just 8 bit panels that dont actually show hdr properly.
@kevnb: Just about every 4k TV on the market, supports some form of HDR. Monitors have not reached that point of saturation yet.
You can get PC monitors with HDR
Well the consoles can't get a locked 60 so I know which one I prefer.
I wish I had Geralt's hair.
Just curious. When the time that PS5 comes out will the fans still brag about how powerful and a beast the Xbox one X is?? or gameplay and games once again matter whatever suits xbox and the fans?? because i wont expect MS to release a successor to Xbox one anytime soon because they just released the Xbox one X. Unless they want to test the market and risk getting ala Dreamcast sales projection. Consoles are not Smartphones which releases yearly.
When ps5 comes out the next Xbox will be right around the corner lol. Argument makes no sense. They just released pro last year you think they are gonna release ps5 next year are you crazy? Also sony is dominating the market they have no incentive to release stronger hardware
Comprehension issues i see. I said "When" PS5 releases. you actually think MS will be able to release immediately their next gen console?? when Sony releases theirs?? it wont matter because it will be an endless cycle where they will be beaten in sales and games worldwide. Unless sony stops producing consoles. I never said they are going to release it very soon. If sony does release it, it will take 6-12 months for MS to make their own unless they want it rushed. So when that time comes where PS5 is released and Xbox has yet to announce their new console, what will be then the new Bragging and excuses by xbox fans??,
HDR isn't needed https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Guess I can somewhat understand why they left out pc as most people don't have hdr monitors yet, but leaving out ps4 is a decision that has me scratching my head
