Witcher 3 getting Xbox Series X update, Ray Tracing

Awesome news Wiitcher 3 is getting a Series X update, free to current owners


Developed to take advantage of the most powerful gaming hardware, the next-gen edition of the game will feature a range of visual and technical improvements — including ray tracing and faster loading times — across the base game, both expansions, and all extra content.

The next generation edition of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will release as a standalone purchase for PC, Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, as well as a free update for everyone who already owns the game on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.


Amazing news. My game of the generation.


This is great did not expect ray tracing for witcher 3.

Seems like CD Projekt Red overcame that blockage just fine :wink:.


What blockage?

This is SO awesome! I can’t wait to play it at a solid 4K/60fps with ray tracing! I’ll do it after I’m finished with Cyberpunk and Valhalla

I still have the GOTY edition in my backlog. At this point I’ll wait for raytracing.


Well there goes another 100+ hours of my life.

Nice! Excellent support from CDPR.

So a game from 2015… Control in the meanwhile​:dollar::euro::dollar::euro::dollar::euro::dollar:


Maybe ill actually finish it on the XSX then, lol


Ask 505 games. They are the one who stated there is a ‘blockage’ that is preventing them from offering an upgrade path for existing control owners.

Its one of my favorite games of all time. I still need to finish the expansions. Glad I waited as I’ll have loads of new content for the Series X patch

Nice, I haven’t played the DLC yet, so I’m in for a treat

Well, well, well… Seeing as I have never actually played my copy of Witcher 3, looks like I found my jump in point.

Really looking forward to this :heart_eyes:

Saw a video that showcased some ray tracing on youtube and I didnt see that much of a difference but if they could give me 4K 60fps in addition to the Loading times Id be happy enough to tackle those dlc.

I was first holding off to play game on x1x, then got more backlog and then holding off till xsx and seems like it’ll pay off


I would LOVE to see mod support added as well. A second playthrough would sound a lot more appealing if I didn’t have to deal with encumbrance!
