I swear if someone say Witcher 3 is a bad port one more time I'm gonna slap them! Amazing patch !



This is odd, I went to update mine and it still says I'm at 3.4 and that I'm using the latest version. Maybe it's just not live here yet; I dunno why they don't just flip a Switch and make it available worldwide at once.

At any rate, phenomenal stuff; Saber and CDPR have done basically everything right on this one, from using the 32GB card to the technically remarkable feat of getting it running well on Switch at all. It's so nice to see a dev/publisher treat their customers so well.



I didn't think there would be a direct this week, cos I'm a pessimistic dunce.

I love that this got added right after I started playing the game on Switch. Sweet stuff.

The game looks so much sharper in docked mode without AA, also plenty of post process you can enable / disable so good.

They even added additional voice and text languages for free, so people that bought Witcher 3 in UK for example and wanted to play in Polish now can download Free Voice Over DLC... they care so much wow.

Or play Witcher 3 in Japanese just for fun :D



I'm running 3.6.
Crazy how this game never auto updates. You always have to go in and do it manually. A minor complaint but I had to find out about the last update (first update for me) because somebody commented on my Facebook post.

Alrighty, just downloaded it and had a good play around with the various graphical options.

My takeaway: for me at least, Saber made the right calls. After experimenting with the different settings I ultimately decided to put it mostly back to default with the exception of the very vague "Blur" setting which I turned off; anyway know what this one does exactly?

It does look a lot more crisp with AA turned off, but on the flipside there's obviously a lot more jaggies, and just personally I'd rather my games look soft than jagged.

Still, the default settings won't be to everyone's taste so it's cool they've given us the option to tailor the game's look.

The optimizations promised are also apparent; does seem to hold 30fps noticeably better in detailed scenes now.

Digital Foundry takes version 3.6 for a spin:

This is amazing quite frankly. Such a hugely demanding game, being able to tweak the graphics until it looks and plays well for you, and having cross-play with PC. If you said this was possible two years back you'd be ridiculed. CD Projekt Red and Switch have both proven to be technical wonders at this point and are perfect for each other. Really impressed!
