I can’t believe I’m playing Witcher 3 again for the 3rd or 4th time, now at 4K 60FPS (performance mode) and it’s glorious. The fluidity really make the combat playable and fun, now without compromising the details of the full 4K !
I can’t wait for the next-gen patch, as the game still have some annoying bugs. But it is still to this day, an incredible achievement in gaming and an engrossing experience every time. There is so much stuff to do !
I have Dishonored 2. While right now I’m too busy in Valhalla, I will give it a go tomorrow and let you know.
I am curious about Prey as well, not sure if that was a locked or unlocked framerate.
Witcher 3 is so good at 60fps, lovely loading times too. According to DF from a two year old video framerate mode does sacrifice some visual fidelity but honestly I have a hard time noticing it when I switch to 4K mode. But the framerate is a crazy difference.
Little different tip, but I have to drop a mention of the original Assassin’s Creed, backwards compatible on Xbox One X and Xbox Series X. With 4K resolution and increased shadow definition, the game looks razor sharp. Of all the Xbox One X enhanced BC games, Assassin’s Creed blew me away more than any other with how modern it looks.
You can now play wolfenstein 2 in native 4K at a mostly locked 60fps. Witcher 3 is about 1800p on the Series X in performance mode, a huge jump over the One X resolutions. Kingdom Hearts 3 is also now a locked 60fps. Should have a video going up covering these and a couple other games.
Just curious, but it seems you can actually “see” like DF what the resolution is? Witcher 3 between both modes looked very similar to me in terms of resolution but I had no idea if it was 1800p. But it seems performance mode runs with a dynamic resolution as well. Perfect. Cyberpunk next? Hopefull!!!
Sounds like it truly is THE mode to choose then, even if you apparently do miss out on a bit of visual fidelity, as per DF in a video of two years old or so.
I’ve taken a number of screenshots of Witcher 3 in performance mode and every screenshot came at 1800p when I did a pixel count. There’s a very good chance that the resolution will go below and above that, probably all the way up to 4K. I just didn’t count any examples of it.
The resolution mode was a native 4K in the few examples I counted.
You also do lose out on some visual settings in performance mode, such as shadow quality but it still looks great.
I wonder about that patch for the game next year. I was busy with Blood and Wine until XSX came out and I bought Valhalla, now I’m hooked to that. Soon Cyberpunk, so maybe around the time I get back to Witcher 3 the patch will be there, haha.
Yeah, shadow quality is not a super huge deal, especially when 60fps feels so damn good in the game.
