Great time to jump back in this masterpiece of a game
Good, at least we have a target date for this. Loading times on PS4 Pro were terrible even on internal SSD last time I checked, and this game looks beautiful on even a low end PC, so this is a very welcome patch. If you've played before, my advice, skip everything and just go straight to Blood and Wine. The rest of the game is awesome, but isn't as good as Blood and Wine. The best DLC ever tied with The Old Hunters, Blood and Wine makes the main game feel boring and generic, that's how good it is. If you played Witcher 3 and think of it as a good game, but never touched Blood and Wine, you are REALLY missing out about why this game is a goat. I find most people that I know, who loved Witcher 3, never even played it, so I like to recommend it. Blood and Wine is the only reason I still hold out hope for Cyberpunk.
I enjoyed Hearts of Stone way more than the over the top fantasy setting in Blood and Wine. Not to say Blood and Wine wasn't fun, but I wouldn't skip an entire game over it.
I said "If you've played before" with the belief that most people coming back to this already started the main campaign on PS4, and most likely, statistically I would guess, didn't beat it. I would assume that without hearing a recommendation to start at a different place, they might start back up the main story(from the beginning) and get bored and quit pretty early. That's what I did when I first restarted. Luckily, I was sorting metacritic one day by best user reviews on PS4 and came across the Blood and Wine user/critic reviews and saw how insane those reviews are, over on metacritic. This "advice" from metacritic got me to start Blood and Wine from the main menu instead of the main campaign and I'm so glad I did. Unlike you, I found Hearts of Stone a little less engaging, but still better than the main game. Blood and Wine had by far the best story, imo, which is why I recommended it, but I understand we all have different preferences.
not all of us are so entitled we have to "skip to the best part"..
The PS4 pro doesn't have an internal SSD. If it's modded the game won't take proper advantage of it.
For real?...you can put an SSD in the PS4. I take it you never played a PS4?
I meant as standard. Hence the second sentence. Games won't be optimised to take full advantage of it though. I've owned PS4/PS4 Pro/PS5.
Nice I am ready to go back !
I'm curious as to what difficulty it'd be tuned at, Launch W3 or the one update that overhauled the Ui definitely toned down enemies damage
obviously the latter. you can't have this update without the previous updates
May finally play it once it's on ps5. I started multiple times on ps4/pro but never got far. I wish they would remake the first and remaster the 2nd
A remake of the original is highly deserved. It's a great game, but I think it would be too archaic for most to jump into now as is. Not to mention console only players never had the chance to play it either way, though I think most basic hoME PCs would run it with little problem nowadays.
Yes but if they were to update it completely remake it with new controls and other quality of life improvements I think it would do great sales wise I think we can all agree that witcher series has grown a lot over the past half decade so any future games would do well as long as their quality developed
thank god I have yet to play blood & wine and heart of stone
They both rule.
Tbh the standard game on series x runs 4k 60fps.it looks uncredible
CD has really given this game great support.
I could never finish this because it came out the same time as Bloodborne and just switching between the two combat systems killed me. Witcher's combat felt like a mobile game in comparison. I know the story is amazing though so perhaps this update is the best time for me to jump in.
Smoozefest. Cyberpunk is only amazing game this company ever made.
Can't wait for this update. Will probably just be a 4k 60fps patch but if there's anything more I think I'll squeal. Was my favourite game of the ps4 generation.
Considering it already runs at 4k on the new gen systems, I hope it's more than just adding 60 fps. I would expect them to at least increase the quality of their assets to match high end pc fidelity
Nice I am ready...
lord their only okay game and it gets released on everything; it's like skyrim, it won't stop with the re-releases
How about a next gen update for CyberPunk that I paid for back in December that is now collecting dust?
Can't wait to install the PS4 version on my PS5 then transfer my save files that probably are not uploaded to the cloud properly. Then install the PS5 version and delete the PS4 version and hope that it is all there in the end.
