Default Witcher 3 Getting a Free Upgrade

What's makes TW3 beautiful is the lighting. Although music + sound is a big part of the atmosphere too for me, and that includes the exaggerated wind animations.

I believe they collaborate with the HD texture modmaker. That + 4K is all I need for another playthrough. Although raytraced ambient occlusion would be nice.

The delay isn't really a surprise. They want to avoid a second disaster at all costs obviously and let the technical people make the decision when it's ready instead of the suits.

Yeah, artistically I think it's great. There were just a few things I thought were a bit off, and would like to see upgraded if we're going to get a "next gen" version. But only in the sense that if I were looking to upgrade it with mods, there's a few things I'd pick out, and the water was never really sorted out. Also some of the lighting mods made certain scenes look superb, but then affected other areas in ways that were not so good. A bit like messing around with ENBs in Skyrim. So, I'm curious to see what refinements they can bring with modern hardware targets.

I'm more interested in the new DLC then the ray tracing. Guess I'll have to replay the PC version for the sixth time whenever they finally release the free pc update.

For now use this mod it updates the graphics if you want to play the original version.

I don't expect there will be anything significant as far as new DLC. Supposedly, they're going to insert a few things as an homage to the Netflix series. I'm not exactly crazy about that idea to be honest.
