CD Projekt RED has released the first trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition’s next-gen update. It also confirmed features like 4K textures and models, a 60 FPS mode, Photo Mode, improved gameplay, cloud saves, and ray tracing features on Xbox Series X/S, PC and PS5. Check it out below.

The update also adds content based on Netflix’s The Witcher show, including new armor for Geralt and alternative appearances for other characters. During its Twitch live stream, CD Projekt RED also confirmed that there would be several bug fixes, including for the infamous Wolf School Gear bug that’s been in the original game since 2015.

It also noted that Quality mode, which runs at 4K/30 FPS, offered ray-traced global illumination and shadows equivalent to the PC version and support for FSR 2.0. The Xbox Series S version will have a 60 FPS mode (though the resolution is unconfirmed), while PS5 players can look forward to DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive trigger support.

The update is out on December 14th for Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and PC. It will be a free upgrade for current owners of the PS4 and Xbox One versions, with a physical edition for current-gen consoles set to arrive later. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
