The Witcher 3’s next-gen update will be available on Wednesday, December 14th for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Additionally, the update is free if you own the base game on PC, PS4, or Xbox One or any current-gen platform which is a wonderful news for fans!

The Witcher 3’s next-gen update will include features such as Ray Tracing and Faster load times

The post featuring the official release announcement on the Witcher’s official Twitter account, promises a slew of “visual, performance, and technical enhancements,” involving raytracing, faster load times and will implement “a variety of mods” into the core Witcher 3 experience. More details will be revealed next week during the publisher’s Twitch stream.

CD Projekt Red has also confirmed that the next-gen update will include all previously released DLC as well as new content focused on the Netflix series The Witcher, such as new weapons and gear as well as “alternative looks” for some chosen characters.

This particular patch appeared to have a particularly difficult development, especially while struggling to fix Cyberpunk 2077’s issues. The update was supposed to be released on 2020 but was delayed twice, players anticipated the worst when CD Projekt Red decided to delay the patch’s release until Q2, forcing CD Projekt to come out last April and assert that it was not in “development hell” after being postponed “until further notice.”

If you’re among the few gamers who hasn’t already purchased Witcher 3, this is a great time to do so, especially considering how often it goes on sale. You can read our full review of Wither 3: Wild Hunt here.
