A new The Witcher 3 has been released online, bringing improvements to Hairworks styles and beards.

The new mod, Heavy Hairworks Overhaul, brings massive improvements to hairstyles and beards details and physics. The results are excellent, but it may impact performance on low-end rigs.

This mod increases the detail and physics responsiveness of all hairworks styles and beards.

Optional file includes matching hair and beard textures.

IMPORTANT: This mod was created primarily with quality in mind, and as such might cause slowdowns on lower-end rigs, especially during closeups to the back of Geralt's hair in cutscenes. Take this into account when using it.

Hairworks hasn't received as many mods as other visual aspects of the game, like lighting, so the new mod is a welcome release.
