The immensely popular game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is getting an upgrade. A tweet by the game’s official Twitter account @witchergame revealed this news. According to the tweet, the upgraded version will be “a visually and technically enhanced version of the game”. It has been optimized for next-generation gaming consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X.
PC gamers don’t have to worry as developers of CD Projekt Red have announced that an upgraded version of the game will be available for PC. According to CD Projekt Red, the upgrades will cover the entire edition of the game including its expanded story developments (Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine).
You can purchase the latest version for PC and next-gen consoles. But for the existing owners of the game on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, it will come as a free update. The enhancements to the game will include quicker load times and ray-traced visuals.
It is not yet clear by when will the new upgrade be made available.
However, it is unlikely to be released this year. For the gamers who haven’t tried out the game and are getting impatient for the upgraded version, there is a way out. They can buy the current version of The Witcher 3 and will receive the upgrade for free most probably next year if they have the relevant gaming console.
