The Witcher video game franchise was built upon the novels written by Andrzej Sapkowski, by Polish developer studio CD Projekt Red, which led to three successful installments and received critical acclaim. Back in May 2017, online streaming-service Netflix decided to explore their very distinct take on the lore of the game before producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich (Marvel's Daredevil, Marvel's The Defenders) was finally announced as series show-runner in December 2017.

Cavill also took interest in reading Sapkowski's novels and recommended them worth reading as they are really good. Previously, he revealed on Conan that he originally missed the call from director Zack Snyder to be cast as Superman in the first place, because he was too busy playing World of Warcraft at that time. Although we know very less about the status of this Netflix series development, the script for pilot has been completed according to some recent report but no news on casting yet.

The Witcher 3 PlayStation 4 Pro Update Facing Issues

CD Projekt Red finally brings HDR support for The Witcher 3 on PlayStation 4 but visual bug still remains.

It's been three years action role-playing game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from developer CD Projekt Red came out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Yet, people cannot seem to get enough of it and so, constant updates are being released every now and then. The most recent released patch is for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro, which was about to fix issues from the one released back in April. However, players started immediately complaining about having some visual problems.

This update was introduced with HDR color support for Sony consoles but creating issues when people tried to run the game in 4K. Patch 1.60/1.61 was dropped to support all PS4 consoles as they promised in December while adding 60 fps support Xbox One X. That was it for back then and Xbox One S had to wait till March to have updated with superior visuals. Aside from graphical improvement, the patch was supposed to do some performance optimizations and stability improvements.

According to developer patch notes; there were also a few localization bug-fixing and slight visual enhancements. However, players were mostly concerned with object popping up in between places and less detail in distance. Suddenly that has become a major issue with everyone who tried out this update. Some objects are getting disappeared and then some of them appearing out of nowhere. This are not just some claims, there are videos on YouTube to back it up.




If you look closely, Geralt of Rivia runs through the field, grasses starts showing detailed texture as he nears them but they remain on a reduced level of detail when seen from the far. The most noticeable immersion breaking comes after 0:52 time frame of the clip above. Of course the tree didn't just popped out but it only detailed out as whole only when he approaches nearby it and not before. After seven months of waiting, this really made a lot of fan upset on so many levels.

Players who have faced this have mentioned that up until patch 1.60, this problem didn't exist. Supersampling for PS4 Pro also is removed for those playing it on a 1080p TV and need to enable settings once again. Issue of items popping up only comes when the game is played in 4K Mode, while 1080p mode remain fine for now. The update came out on a perfect time as The Witcher 3 will be celebrating its three-year anniversary on May 19, if it was not for these current inconveniences.

The display settings of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt now adds two new visual options for the players to choose from. There is a 4K Mode and a Performance Mode. People can either play the game with 60 frames per second or just in a constant 4K resolution if they will.

According to CD Projekt Red, if you are to choose the 4K Mode, you can experience the high definition of 4K resolution at a regular 30 FPS. If excellent visual is your top priority then you can certainly go with this one and the consistency of the frame rates remains even in the middle of an ongoing battle. The Performance Mode however lets you play at 60 FPS and the resolution will be scaled down to somewhere between 1080p to 4K, so that you can have that frame rate at all times.

These two visual options are just the key-features of the v1.60 patch update and there is more to add. The texture of the surrounding environment of the game and the shadows will look much more realistic and better in quality. Since combat is an inseparable part of any action game out there, we prefer the Performance Mode over 4K Mode which is stuck on a constant 30 FPS.
