Witcher 3: Wild Hunt gets Xbox One X update; PS4 Pro HDR update coming

Check out Geralt of Rivia in glorious 4K on your Xbox One X.

Xbox One X owners can look forward to another game getting enhanced for the beefed-up Xbox console. CD Projekt Red has released an upgrade for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt hunt bring the game into 4K.

Now, The Witcher 3 currently runs at 60FPS on the Xbox One X and the enhancement features for the Xbox One X come in two options: 4K Mode and Performance Mode. Both modes support HDR, but 4K Mode brings players glorious 4K resolution (or supersampled on a non-4K display) with stable 30FPS gameplay.

  • 2 new graphic modes: 4K Mode and Performance Mode
  • support for 4K resolution
