The Witcher 3 Looks Stunning at 4K with SweetFX 2.0

Posted 1 year ago

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available and some PC gamers have been experimenting with SweetFX for improving the game’s visual even further. This SweetFX config certainly makes The Witcher 3 look absolutely amazing, and even though we don’t know if this mod will eventually be released, I still believe that it’s worth checking out.

While many have argued that the game has lost some of its visual flair since the 2013 reveal trailer, CD Projekt RED claims that they have not changed the textures, and that they have only toned down as sharpening filter that was causing eye  strain. The higher resolution can replicate the sharpening effect to some extend so it does indeed seem quite similar. Certain changes have been made of course to accommodate the console hardware, but the game turned out looking quite good indeed. We have also provided some amazing 4K Ultra settings footage of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which can be viewed here.
