The Witcher 3 to Get 4K PS4 Pro Update

The Witcher 3 to Get 4K PS4 Pro Update

The Witcher 3 will be getting PlayStation 4 Pro enhancements. This runs counter to statements CD Projekt Red made in September 2016, where they said they wouldn’t patch the game with 4K features, and were instead focused on Cyberpunk 2077.

“We've prepared a 4K version which will be available on PlayStation Pro in just a few days and by the end of the year it will be available on Xbox One X," said CD Projekt president Adam Kicinski during the company’s half-year presentation.

It appears that the patch won’t be coming “in a few days” though. Senior PR manager Radek Adam Grabowski reached out to Eurogamer to clarify:

PS4 Pro and Xbox One X: both technical updates are coming. More details about them, including the exact moment when they will be released, are something we are going to announce when the right time comes.

We’ll keep you updated as more news becomes available.

1080p with hair works would be better imo. The wolves look amazing

Would love to see what that would look like. Not upgrading to a Pro or 4k tv anytime soon though.

1080p 60 FPS would've been better!

Still though, this is good news, I haven't played the game yet but might as well wait for the update now.

Vaguely concerned this means Cyberpunk is delayed, but I have all the faith in CDPR so Imma stamp those feelings out

hair works is exclusive to nvidia cards, and extremely extremely demanding.

It like cuts your fps in half, it takes a 1080 to max out Witcher 3 at 4k and it only gets 30 fps, it gets about 50 fps with hairworks off.

I'd imagine the X getting released is a big part of the reason Pro is getting enhanced - they were doing the X upgrade work anyway, and probably found could apply it quite easily to the pro :)
