The Witcher 3 – Modders On A Quest To Reverse Downgrade

Posted 1 year ago

The Witcher 3: Wild is definitely one beautiful looking game, but fans waiting the game they were promised back in 2013, were disappointed. Now it appears that modders are trying to replicate the 2013 VGX build, and reverse the supposed downgrade that has been a subject of discussion for such a long time.

Below you can view a 4K video of the SweetFX mod running on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt:

The mods are trying to tone down the saturated pastel colors that are present in the final build of The Witcher 3. The two mods are SweetFX presets, which inject shaders into the game to alter its post processing. The first of these mods is by K-putt, which you can get from here, while the second one is by Powerplay and you can get it from here.

There’s a way of improving the grass quality in The Witcher 3, as well as improving performance by making a few adjustments in the ini files. There’s also a workaround on how to run HairWorks on AMD GPUs without crippling performance, which enables AMD GPU users to enjoy The Witcher 3 with the HairWorks setting enabled and actually getting better performance than GeForce users not using a Maxwell architecture Nvidia GPU.


The Witcher 3 is a gorgeous looking open world RPG that looks even better at higher resolutions.

We have recently provided some beautiful 4K screenshots of the PC version of the game as well as some 4K gameplay footage that showcases the beautiful graphics that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt can provide at Ultra High-Definition at it Ultra Settings.
