CD Projekt RED confirms it will kick off boxed sales of the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of its open world action RPG next week.
These optional scenes may very well be among the best moments of their games.
Available for PlayStation, Xbox and PC on December 14th, the quest takes players to a familiar location in White Orchard.
CDPR has hidden "lots of new secrets and lots of new little details that we want people to find," narrative director Philip Webber says.
Improved vegetation and screen-space reflections, along with better ambient occlusion, are highlighted in a video by ElAnalistaDeBits.
Accessibility features like HUD scaling and subtitle size, filter settings for the map, and a new way to activate Signs are also confirmed.
Along with 4K/30 FPS with ray-traced global illumination, the next-gen update adds FSR 2.0, DualSense support, and various improvements.
With the next-gen update going live on December 14th, CD Projekt will detail its content tomorrow on Twitch at 9 AM PST.
DLC based on the Netflix series is also included, and features new weapons, armor, and alternative looks for "select characters."
CD Projekt RED has finally dated the current-gen upgrade for its open world RPG, and said that more details will be arriving next week.
The open world action RPG's PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions are expected to launch in Q4 of this year.
The open world action RPG's recent resurgence continues to drive up its player count, and currently stands higher than The Witcher 3's all-time peak on Steam.
CD Projekt RED confirms that The Witcher 3's current-gen update is still on track for its previously-announced Q4 2022 launch.
There's more to these games than meets the eye.
"Nobody's saying the game is delayed [with] some monumental time gap ahead of us," says CD Projekt's senior vice president of business development Michał Nowakowski.
CD Projekt announces The Witcher 3 has sold over 40 million units worldwide, with the series having collectively sold over 65 million.
"We are currently evaluating the scope of work to be done and thus have to postpone Q2 release until further notice," CDPR says.
The studio's debut project is the first in a planned saga, and is being built using Unreal Engine 5 for "PC and next-gen consoles".
More updates and improvements will be coming to CD Projekt RED's troubled FPS/RPG next year along with the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S upgrade.
Cyberpunk 2077 will now come to the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S in Q1 of 2022, while The Witcher 3 will arrive in Q2 of 2022.
