Xbox One X enhancements to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt were made possible by using the “additional power of the console,” according to CD Projekt Red.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt visual tweaks on Xbox One X will include higher-quality shadows, ambient occlusion and texture filtering and 4K.

It will also feature higher resolution textures, and a performance boost. This will ensure those playing The Witcher 3 on Xbox One X will enjoy sharper visuals and more vivid visuals, according to development lead Jakub Kutrzuba.

“We think Xbox users who haven’t played The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt or who are looking to relive Geralt’s final adventure on the new console will be happy to see what we’ve achieved with the game’s visuals on Xbox One X,” said Kutrzuba.

“Thanks to 4K, we can show everything our artists created with more detail. And it’s not just owners of a 4K TV who will benefit from the higher resolution. Thanks to supersampling, the leap in quality will be visible even on a 1080p screen.

“With the technology becoming more widespread, 4K is looking like the next step for the gaming industry to achieve more in terms of visuals.”

CD Projekt released the PS4 Pro update for The Witcher 3 on October 4, and the update for Xbox One X will be made available by the end of the year.
