Long Covid Mods translate “real-world symptoms” into Elden Ring, Minecraft, and The Witcher 3

A new series of challenge mod packs aim to raise awareness for Long Covid and chronic fatigue symptoms using three perennial favourites: Elden Ring, Minecraft, and The Witcher 3. The initiative is called Long Covid Mode and all three mods make sweeping adjustments to the games, turning “real-world symptoms into in-game effects.” Take a look at some of the examples below: Read more

Behold, the Cyberpunk 2077 path tracing mode your GPU probably can’t run

Nvidia have previewed the upcoming Overdrive Mode for Cyberpunk 2077, showcasing how it replaces the game’s already extensive ray tracing effects with full path tracing. Why Nvidia and not the developers, CD Projekt Red? Well, that might have something to do with Overdrive Mode being such a graphics card shatterer that it will supposedly take a GeForce RTX 40 series GPU – with DLSS 3 in effect – to run. Read more

The Witcher 3 Next Gen Update: three months on, I’m still not convinced

The Witcher 3’s next-gen update features detailed and ‘unintended’ female genitalia

No beating around the bush about it. The Witcher 3’s next-gen update brings better graphics and performance to the game. That was expected. But players weren’t expecting, was realistic and detailed female anatomy down south. These new models are being called into question for their level of detail. Some players may question why such intimate details were included in the update, while others may simply enjoy the eye candy. Either way, the inclusion wasn’t intentional on CDPR’s part. Here’s a completely safe for-work trailer showing off The Witcher 3’s next-gen update Per some rather graphic screenshots posted to reddit (view…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s 4.01 patch improves ray tracing, but tanks non-RT performance

While the patch notes for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s 4.01 update claim it “improves the overall stability and performance of the game”, if you’re not using the recently added ray tracing settings, it might well do the opposite. I gave the patch a whirl to try out its PC-specific changes – namely a new ‘Performance’ setting for RT global illumination and a fix for the broken screen space reflections setting – only to find that non-ray-traced, DirectX 12 performance has been utterly knackered. Again. Read more

The Witcher 3 next-gen patch for PC in “final stages,” console version coming to retail

For those who like to hold things in their hands. CD Projekt Red is working to bring a patch for the next-gen version of The Witcher 3 to PC as soon as possible. The company is also releasing a physical copy of this version of the game to retail next week. The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt — Complete Edition Next-Gen Update Trailer According to the studio’s global community director Marcin Momot, the next-gen patch for PC is “at the final stages,” and it “shouldn’t be long until it comes out.” “We’ll share more info the moment we can,” said Momot….

CD Projekt settles with investors in Cyberpunk 2077 class-action suit to the tune of $1.85 million

The parties involved have come to an agreement. CD Projekt has settled a class-action lawsuit originally brought by investors in 2021 over Cyberpunk 2077. The two parties, which entered into negotiations in late 2021, came to an agreement this week with CD Projekt agreeing to pay investors $1.85 million (thanks, Law 360 via PCgamesN). Cyberpunk: Edgerunners — Official Trailer – Netflix Investors filed a lawsuit against the company two years ago alleging it misrepresented the practically broken state of Cyberpunk 2077 on consoles to receive financial benefits. The first class-action suit against CD Projekt came about in January 2021, with…

Can our panellists predict the future? No, obviously. Welcome to VG247’s Best Games Ever Podcast: Episode 32 – the best game of 2023 The future is unknowable. As are the minds of our deranged panellists, who were asked to pick their nod for next year’s GOTY based on the scraps of info we know about 2023’s game releases and, somehow, none of them picked Starfield.

Another hotfix for The Witcher 3’s next-gen update should make Geralt more stable

CD Projekt RED have pushed out another hotfix for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s ever-so-slightly borked next-gen update that was released last week. You can expect some extra stability compared to the previous version of the update, something that’ll always be welcome on my PC. Along with Roach’s early Christmas present of some stabilisers, the hotfix also tackles the annoying bug that caused toxicity to be stuck at max level, along with some minor tweaks to photo mode, and unexplained improvements for The Witcher 3’s performance on Steam Deck.

Cyberpunk 2077, in its current state, is a much better open-world RPG than The Witcher 3

Ever role-played as a taxi driver in Night City? You should try it; it’s better than watching Geralt auto-gallop to his next contract. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has just been released for the seventeenth time and I think it’s time that society at large accepted that it’s just not a particularly good open world RPG. Admittedly, it’s a fairly impressive flow diagram of branching story choices and decisions – it would make a great choose-your-own-adventure book or Twine game. But if what you play expansive RPGs for is to explore an interesting and engaging fantasy environment, this is really…

The Witcher 3 next-gen update complicates a Cyberpunk 2077 mystery

What the hell does it all mean? A currently unsolved mystery from Cyberpunk 2077 has just gotten more mysterious due to the recent Witcher 3 next-gen update. The next-gen update for The Witcher 3 recently dropped, bringing new life into a now seven year old game. There’s some new stuff to be found too, like a quest that nets you something fans of the Netflix show might be happy to see. But most mysterious of all is the connection to a mystery that originated in Cyberpunk 2077, and one that still hasn’t been figured out two years later. You see,…

The Witcher 3 Next-Gen Upgrade: Should I Choose Raytracing or Performance?

It’s a long-awaited upgrade, but now console players are faced with a stark choice. ^Stay tuned for our video comparison of The Witcher 3’s new raytracing and performance modes. The Witcher 3’s next gen update, or “current gen update” if you’re one of the extremely well-adjusted people who keeps screaming about the PS6 not being announced yet whenever someone says “next gen”, is finally here after what feels like approximately two years since its announcement (it feels like that because it is that). It is, as you rightly suspect, a refinement of something that was already beautiful. We’re talking nips…

The Witcher 3‘s hotly anticipated next gen update arrives in just over a week, like an early Christmas present from a man who has a white beard and is often covered in red, but you definitely wouldn’t describe as jolly.
