CD Projekt Red has revealed its first gameplay trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt running on next-gen (or rather, current-gen) platforms. After a lengthy wait, CD Projekt announced recently that it would finally be pushing out the free update for its beloved RPG across PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC platforms in mid-December. And while fans had yet to know what this upgraded version of the game would look like, that has now changed.
Highlighted in a lengthy new trailer today, CD Projekt Red finally gave fans a glimpse of what The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will look like on new platforms. In short, and as expected, the visuals and performance of The Witcher 3 seem to have been drastically improved thanks to this forthcoming update. Not only do the character models and environments look more impressive than ever before, but the snippets of gameplay that are shown look crisp. All in all, it seems like a lot of work went into this update, which should make this the best version of The Witcher 3 that has ever been released.
