Regardless of all the graphics downgrade controversy, this new huge, tangential action RPG, is nothing but pure awesomeness. CD Projekt RED has already released patches for the PC version of the game that improve performance as well as give a little boost to the graphics. However, there’s a way you can enjoy much better visuals right now.
