The Witcher 3 to Receive a Free Next-Gen Upgrade

Even if you’re the most cold-hearted, compassionless human being of the world, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will make you feel things you’ve never felt before!

For a game that was launched in 2015, its extraordinary graphics, mesmerising gameplay and the hauntingly beautiful storyline are relevant to this day.

This year, The Witcher 3 completed its fifth anniversary yet it can still go toe to toe with any latest arrival. But that is apparently not enough for Developer CD Projekt Red.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set to receive an upgrade for next-generation hardware like PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X. Those who already own the game on PC, PS4 and Xbox One will get this upgrade for free.

As disclosed by the developers, the latest enhancement of The Witcher 3 will incorporate a wide “range of visual and technical improvements.” This will see refinements like ray tracing and swift loading times being a part of the game.

Other than the base game, its expansions packs like Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine along with other DLC will receive the update too.

If this doesn’t make you ecstatic, then what will?

Those who have a copy of the game on their current systems must have appropriate hardware to make the most of this generous offering.

PC users will have to ensure that their system is up to the mark for running the upgraded version of The Witcher 3.

Thus, a proper GPU which complements ray tracing will be required for playing as Geralt of Rivia. SSD storage will also be a must if one is to take pleasure of the rapid loading times.

As of now, it’s still ambiguous if there is any additional provision for running this action role-playing game other than owning a copy.

But still, to get something as engaging as The Witcher 3 that too for free is definitely an icing on the cake.

Currently, there is no information regarding its release date.

Thus, in order look for Ciri, Geralt goes on a quest crowded with missions and complex decision making. The best feature of The Witcher 3 is that the choices a player makes determine the outcome of the game.

The storyline presents itself with such complicated characters where one has to choose the lesser of two evils. Thus, its a game that doesn’t totally rely on brawn but brain too.

After finding Ciri, Geralt further helps her fight the king of the Wild Hunt, Eredin who wants to use Ciri’s power to take over the entire continent.

The ending of this game totally depends on the choices users make throughout the game. Therefore, it varies and can end either on a positive or a negative note.
