It’s time for HDR and 4K.
The 1.60 patch for The Witcher 3 is out now for the Xbox One console and introduces 4K resolution and HDR support.
PlayStation 4 Pro got the 4K resolution options a while back but is still waiting for HDR, which the devs promise will come in the near future.
The Xbox One update also features a list of tweaks and upgrades that fall into two visual categories: 4K mode and performance mode.
CD Projekt had this to say in a press release:
“In 4K Mode, the game and all its additional content will run in 4K resolution (or supersampled on a non-4K display), featuring enhanced shadows, ambient occlusion, and texture filtering, as well as higher resolution textures and gameplay at 30 fps.”
“Switching to Performance Mode will enable dynamic resolution scaling, rendering the game at a resolution of minimum 1080p and up to 4K, while targeting 60 fps during gameplay.”
