Witcher 3 fans have been waiting for Xbox One X update, but developers were silent in last months. However, it seems like the wait is going to over soon the CD Projekt RED may have a Christmas present in work for Xbox One X fans. The official Microsoft website now mentions that the update is “Comming Soon”. Whenever the game’s Xbox One X status changed from “In Development” to “Coming Soon” it is usually released within one week or so.
The Witcher 3 Xbox One X Update Coming Soon
A while ago, CD Projekt RED shared the first technical details on The Witcher 3 Xbox One X update. Let’s refresh our minds with them.
With the additional power of the Xbox One X, we are able to deliver The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in 4K, while providing numerous visual tweaks such as higher-quality shadows, ambient occlusion & texture filtering, as well as higher resolution textures, and an all-around performance boost.
Thanks to 4K, we can show everything our artists created with more detail. And it’s not just owners of a 4K TV who will benefit from the higher resolution. Thanks to supersampling, the leap in quality will be visible even on a 1080p screen.
The CD Projekt RED’s PlayStation 4 Pro patch provided epic RPG delivered at the 2160p image through checkerboard rendering according to Digital Foundry and reconstructed from the base resolution of 1920×2160.
Other enhancements on PS4 Pro include 16x Anisotropic Filtering and Horizon-Based Ambient Occlusion (HBAO), so going with what we know of the upcoming The Witcher 3 Xbox One X update, owners of Microsoft’s new console should enjoy higher-quality shadows, higher resolution textures and a native 4K resolution in comparison. It will be interesting to see whether the hardware can maintain a steady 30 frames per second even in the busiest areas, such as Crookback Bog.
You can purchase The Witcher 3: Game of the Year Edition (including both expansions, Blood and Wine, and Hearts of Stone) on Microsoft’s Store.
