The Witcher 3 PS4 hotfix increases foliage draw distance

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has received another small update that aims to fix issues introduced with the previous one.

In April, CD Projekt RED released the long awaited HDR patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which also promised to improve performance.

Since then, many have been reporting a few visual bugs when running the game in 4K on a PS4 Pro. The developer deployed a hotfix shortly after, but some of these problems, most notably draw distance visual bugs, were left untouched.

This has been corrected this week with yet another hotfix. The update should prevent trees and other foliage from popping in and out of view a short distance away from Geralt.

That’s basically it, which, if truly fixed, may be the last patch the game receives. This pop-in issue along with performance problems were the two most cited “downgrades” in players reports, so it’s good to finally seem them addressed.
