Witcher 3 Receives Xbox One X Patch With HDR Support Today; PS4 Pro HDR Patch Coming Soon
Your eyes are in for a treat.
Previously, CD Projekt Red have said that The Witcher 3 won't be on the receiving end of a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X style treatment, but according to the official Xbox One X enhanced games list, it looks like it'll support HDR after all.
That's until the game's logo showed up on Microsoft's E3 stage where it was revealed that Witcher 3 was in fact getting an upgrade. Since this, CDPR has released a PS4 Pro patch but not one for the Xbox One X.
The official Xbox One X enhanced games list has always listed Witcher 3 as a 4K game, but not an HDR one. Things have seemingly changed as the HDR logo has sat next to the 4K one.
The change was noticed by WCCFtech and at the time it said "coming soon", so it was near to its release. All you Xbox One Witcher 3 fans will be pleased to hear that CD Projekt Red annouced today that patch 1.60 has been released bringing both HDR and the 4K upgrade.
For the Playstation 4 folk, don't you worry - HDR support for your console will be coming soon!
The Xbox One X upgrade patch is around 500mb, and it features a variety of graphical improvements and tweaks. You'll also come across two options - 4K mode and performance mode. Here's what CDPR said about both of these modes:
"In 4K mode, the game and all its additional content will in in 4K resolution (or supersampled on a non-4K display), featuring enhanced shadows, ambient occlusion and texture filtering, as well as higher resolution textures and gameplay at 30fps".
"Switching to performance mode will enable dynamic resolution scaling, rendering the game at a resolution of minimum 1080p and up to 4K, while targeting 60fps during gameplay". Both modes support HDR if your monitor / TV is up to the task, which will enhance the games contrast even more. That should make your eyeballs smile with glee!
To access these new-found options, simply go to options > display > advanced when you've loaded up Witcher 3.
Fancy treating your eyeballs to a wonderfully enhanced landscape? Be sure to get on it ASAP to enjoy Witcher 3 in all its glory!
