The Witcher 3 is such a huge, expansive game that it’s likely that many of you are still playing it, months later. If not still busy, chances are many of you will be replaying the game – especially once that free DLC to enable New Game Plus is out. You’ll be happy to know that by the time that DLc comes along, the game will look and run better. (more…)

    Any idea on the size of the patch? Just updated to 1.07 after 7.5gb!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Doubt it’ll be anywhere near as big as the previous patch, that added a whole bunch of new stuff. Ones before it were around the 100mb range.

    THE PATCHER III: WILD BUG HUNT

  • ZA Ludomusicologist

    CD Projekt RED is engraving a name in history as one of the greatest developers of all time: FIXING bugs (take note EA, Ubisoft) and giving away free DLC. *****

    Sorry but I couldn't not share!

    I played the witcher 3 from start to finish without installing any patches, well expect for the day 1 “drm” patch. I had no problems with the game, well excpet the triss quest and one time heads popping off, i would say you get a pretty solid complete game which took me over 2 months to finish.

    The game is good. let me rephase that. the game is fucking good. if only the game was developed for pc first and consoles later, the game would have been perfect, generation defining. I would say that is the only thing wrong with the game.

    you can tell the witcher 3 is for gamers by gamers, well maybe not for pc gamers, remap keys patch and camera and movement patch and console graphics. other than that for the gamers.

    Don’t support drm. Cyberpunk 2077 is coming. The witcher 3 with its drm patches and drm dlc, fuck that.

    • Jonah Cash

      To be fair the patches they did so far has been helpful patches. But the game can be played and enjoyed without installing any of them, except day 1 patch. The game is complete, and the patches weren’t needed to fix it, rather just tweak it here and there. I am happy with how they have done their patches…

    • oVg Up for a game of Gwent?

      No problem with the Vanilla version. I played V1.04 and uninstalled it to see the difference. The original version had better draw distance and looked more like the PC version. But the frame rate was hammered in the bog and city.

      Also, blood stains would appear all over Gerald when hit, same in the cut scene when you meet Yen after killing the men in the pub. Your clothes would be covered in blood. No longer there after the patches.

      The latest patches twiddled the textures down, gave it less draw distance so there are now more pop ins and the lighting seems more orange, all in the name of raising the frame rate.

      Its a double edged sword. As much as I love CD P for optimizing their game I think they have overdone it. An artist leaves his painting once complete or it gets ruined.

      It needed another 6 months in the cooker but they already pushed it from Feb 27th.

      I FCUKING LOVE THE GAME. 300HOURS+

      game was pretty enough even with the downgrades, although you’re right, it could have been better and deserved to be better.
      graphics didnt really bother me though, my issue was character based. i thought that overall, the voice acting and dialogue / script was pretty lackluster and improving them was pretty easy compared to upgrading the graphics again. there are solutions that dont involve messing with the code.

      story was pretty predictable though, no real plot twists or surprises. and they completely brushed over the whole emhyr thing “ooooh, emhyr so scary, lets completely ignore him and the entire nilfgarding nation when we get to the end”

    Thank gurrrd!! haven’t been able to play since 1.07. Gave me a chance to finish GTA 5 though…..sigh. Hopefully this next patch will have me back in Novigrad in no time.

    I am waiting for ng+ but tried witcher 2 on pc and actually like it more. W2 not being open world makes it better i think….more detailed, tighter. But keeps crashing randomly. still on the fence with pc masterrace vs ps4.

    • Buddydudeguy

      lol on the fence. The PC version ( as always) blows the console version out of the park. Whats to be on the fence about.

      • Steffmeister

        Better visuals not the only factor… My couch is soo much more comfortable than my office… and 50″ tv vs 27″ …. also games on pc seem to crash on me quite often. That’s all just personal experience. PC definitely better, but not always my preferred choice.

        • Buddydudeguy

          This is a out of date argument. There is nothing stopping you from using a controller with your PC and hooking it up to a TV. I do it all the time.
