Forums - Nintendo Discussion - The Witcher 3 UPDATE brings cross-save and graphic options on Switch

As someone who finds the technical side of graphics fascinating from an academic point of view, this is indeed really cool even if I personally wouldn't risk my hardware for it.

Then again I'm one of those folks who sees no need whatsoever for a more powerful mid-gen Switch and is completely satisfied with the Switch's current power level.

Updated the OP with the game update news

An update seems to have started rolling out, players in Korea are allegedly able to download version 3.6. The update appears to be as significant as was hinted at. Saves now have compatibility with the PC version, meaning you can progress through the Switch edition and continue on where you left off on Steam (and supposedly GOG) and vice versa. Additionally, it looks like several graphics options can be tinkered with.

Based on the reddit post, there are eight new graphic FX options available:

Motion blur
Blur effect
* Bloom
* Sharpen
* Depth of Field
* Depth of Field for Cut-scenes
* Chromatic Aberration
* Water Quality
* Foliage Visibility Range
* Anti-Aliasing

And following are two screenshots comparing Sharpen OFF vs MAX.

Images do not work. Sharing savefiles with Steam and GOG is amazing though!



Sharing save files with steam?

Switch now has the definive version of Witcher 3. Play on the go, or on your PC with max settings at home.

Hopefully everyone gets it soon, the sharpening looks interesting.

It's not out yet. It's a leak and could be fake.

EDIT: Also available in other countries now, like Italy seen in the comments over at NE.

Leak so far, but signs are showing it could be possible.
