Witcher 3 new update might include a mod created by a talented modder, giving this game an HD rework in its textures and overall look.
Witcher 3 was released back in 2015, but its graphics and charm are still counted among the best games to this day. And with the help of the modding community and official updates, this game has aged like a fine wine.
New Gen Update
CD project, the studio behind this masterpiece, announced that they are going to release an update for the game for new generation consoles, that will level up the look and graphics. This updated version will be for Playstation 5 and Xbox Series S/X.
According to sources, CDPR was going to incorporate some phenomenal fan mods in their latest update, and now we can confirm that it has happened. A modder with the name “HalkHogan” posted this on Nexusmods.com
“It’s been a long time since the last video. I know I announced a new HDRP preview in early March but I was silent the whole time. Sorry for that. But in return, I have some good news, and the reasons why I was quiet and why I don’t have too much to show. I think the most important news is that I got an official message from CDPR about cooperation. While it’s not certain yet, it’s very likely that HDRP will be included in the official next generation update. I will inform you what’s next. “
His mod “The Witcher 3 HD Reworked Project” might be in the new update of the game.
reached out to CDPR and they responded with: “In addition to our own development efforts on the upcoming next-gen version of The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC, we are also in talks with creators of various mods for the 2015 release of the game. As of this time, however, we do not have any binding agreements with any such party.”
So while it’s highly possible the Halkhogan’s mod will be used in the update, we can’t be sure as the deal has not been confirmed officially.
