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

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.

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 free upcoming next gen update is looking snazzy

We just got our first look at The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt‘s much-delayed free “next gen” update, by which they mean current gen, and which yep, looks like a looker.
