A new generation patch
It was a few months ago when we found out that the Poles were preparing an update of your game to work better on PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC. A package that would add more quality to the textures, allow games in glorious 4K and significantly revamp stages and environments to give them all the polish they deserve on new machines. And on top of that, it would be completely free.
Well then, we practically have that patch here, which It will be officially released on December 14. so if you already have your copy of the game for PS4 or Xbox One, as well as PC on Steam, for example, you can install it without spending an extra euro to enjoy with your new PS5 or Xbox Series X|S hardware and, of course , PC. Now, what consequences has this improvement brought about in the technical aspect of The Witcher 3?
Well, there’s an immediate one that is actually surprising, because the game has sold so many millions of units that it’s hard to imagine that there’s still someone who hasn’t tried it. Since just a week ago the details of this patch were finalized, the game (and its GOTY version) has been climbing positions in the top one of the best sellers and right now it is located in the 17th within Steam. And that we come from several days in which it has occupied 35 and 20. So as the release date of the patch approaches, its success is going to boost sales even more.
And the technical requirements?
This is where the unforeseen come because it is obvious that if The Witcher 3 It will significantly improve its graphic quality something we will have to help with the hardware of the computer. With PS5 and Xbox Series X | S there is no doubt that there are no problems, but what about PC? Will we have to have better hardware than what the minimum and recommended requirements of the official CD Projekt RED website or Steam itself are asking for right now? The answer is yes, but the Poles have not updated them yet.
If we look at the official sources, those recommended requirements currently remain at:
- Windows 7, 8 or 10 64-bit operating system.
- Processor: Intel CPU Core i7 3770 3.4 GHz / AMD CPU AMD FX-8350 4 GHz.
- RAM memory: 8 GB RAM.
- Graphics card: Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 770 / AMD GPU Radeon R9 290.
- Storage: 35 GB available.
It is obvious that they will not be the end but it is suspicious that in a little more than 20 days we continue with the secrecy of whether we are going to need a much more powerful PC or not. Which we are sure it will be. Or how else do you think you are going to be able to move everything new that this patch brings next-gen? Here you have all the news:
- Global illumination with ray-tracing.
- FSR 2 and DLSS support.
- photo mode
- New Ultra+ graphics mode.
- Constant 60 fps console performance.
- New camera frames.
- Redone all textures and foliage in the game.
- Cross-match progression between PC and consoles.

As soon as CD Projekt RED publishes the new recommended requirements for this patch next-gen of The Witcher 3 Wild Hunthere you will have them.
