The Witcher 3 Unpatched Runs at 60FPS on Xbox One X

Runtime: 9:57    Author: NXGamer    Category: Trailers

If you were underwhelmed by the performance of The Witcher 3 on Xbox One, and don’t have a PC that’s up to the task, this recent find (via NX Gamer) might interest you. An unpatched version of the game running on Xbox One X will run at 60 frames per second.

As Eurogamer points out, The Witcher 3 shipped on console with an uncapped framerate; because none of the systems were up to the task, you never saw the game hit over 30. Now you can see what the extra horsepower of the One X brings.

One consideration however is a loss in resolution. On Xbox One, the game launched at 1600x900. It wasn’t until a later patch that the internal resolution was bumped up to 1080p. Highly populated areas like Novigrad and the swamps or Crookback still present problems too, as the game struggles to maintain that 60FPS.

Unpatched, you’ll also be missing out on quality-of-life improvements, access to expansions, and 4K visuals.

Really? I never had much of an issue... other than the menus feeling like they took forever to load. I think I'll wait for the patch before diving back in however :)

No it wasn't. Once again you're just talking sh*t about a console because you're a PC tosser.

No, its not because hes a PC Tosser, its because he's a d*ck. Blaming it on him playing on PC lumps the rest of us in with him which isn't fair.

Witcher 3 looks great on my Xbox One X and is getting "enhanced" shortly so it can only get better!

Hmm, for the most part the game is better with the patches and extras installed.
And tbh, it is a beautiful game either way.
